The benefits of oral Vitamin C for the skin

You’ll always find Vitamin C on the list of essential ingredients that keep you looking and feeling healthy. This vital nutrient, also known as ascorbic acid, does a bevy of helpful functions for the body, including the upkeep of healthy, beautiful skin.

Packed with antioxidant properties, Vitamin C protects cells from damage caused by free radicals. While we can defend ourselves to a certain extent from some naturally occurring free radicals, we need help from antioxidants to prevent an overload.

The harm from free radicals to our body also lies in environmental factors such as UV sunlight, air pollution, cigarette smoke and alcohol that can accelerate damage to DNA and other cells.

The legendary ingredient also plays an important role in protecting and making collagen, a protein that helps wounds heal. Without adequate amounts of dietary Vitamin C, the body can't form or store collagen.

Collagen is the leader of the pack when it comes to strengthening skin, and helping out with elasticity and hydration. Unfortunately though, as we age, collagen depletes causing wrinkles to appear and skin can become dry.

The best form of Vitamin C for the skin

Meet our Anti-G-Ox, the ultimate skincare fighter, created to bring down nasty free radicals and promote skin rejuvenation. But we didn’t stop at just including Vitamin C — we added 9 other active ingredients proven to protect against skin-damaging and age-accelerating factors that we experience every day from sun, stress, pollution, sleep, diet, radiation and climate.

Thanks to this formula the skin benefits can be endless. Add Anti-G-Ox to your daily routine and let these nutrients help improve your skin function and hydration levels, and help create a plumper, smoother complexion.

Vitamins and minerals for glowing skin

A quick guide to Anti-G-Ox’s 10 skin-rejuvenating ingredients:

  1. Vitamin C is an antioxidant-rich super vitamin that assists in the formation and production of collagen and reduces free radicals.
    The reward: It helps to minimise pigmentation, brightens skin and helps to reduce the visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. It also increases the formation of elastin, which thickens, protects, and heals skin cells.

  2. Biotin helps produce and distribute fatty acids in the skin and plays an important role in the health of the skin.
    The reward: It’s pivotal in the constant production of new skin cells for healthy, glossy skin.

  3. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works synergistically with biotin. Together, chromium and biotin can enhance glucose disposal and glycogen synthesis.
    The reward: Chromium paired with biotin gives anti-glycation benefits (basically they can help treat, prevent or reverse skin damage) as they help improve serum glucose and lipid levels.

  4. Curcumin contains potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help boost the body’s defences against oxidative stress. This can prevent cell damage, enhance collagen deposition and promote wound healing.
    The reward: It nourishes the skin, giving it a natural, youthful glow. And curcumin's anti-ageing properties help prevent and improve skin wrinkles, dehydration and pigmentation whilst reducing skin inflammation and blemishes.

  5. Vitamin E is an essential nutrient that contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. They combat the effects of free radical damage, stopping it from damaging the lipids in the skin’s cell membranes.
    The reward: Vitamin E is critical for beautiful skin. It supports the immune system, cell function, hair growth and may help reduce UV damage to the skin.

  6. Magnesium plays an integral role in over 300 metabolic processes and supports the adrenal system. The nutrient is essential for enzymes that regulate DNA replication and repair.
    The reward: Magnesium targets the underlying causes of skin conditions like acne by lowering cortisol levels, stabilising hormonal imbalances and improving cellular processes.

  7. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 that contains anti-glycation, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
    The reward: Niacinamide helps reduce skin sensitivity and helps improve tone and texture. Additionally, it helps reduce damage to elasticity of the skin and skin sallowness.

  8. Vitamin B6 is key for skin cell growth and repair. This vitamin also helps reduce the formation of advanced glycation end products, regulates hormone shifts and decreases inflammation.
    The reward: By slowing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamin B6 helps delay the ageing process and promotes clear, healthy skin.

  9. Kakadu Plum is the richest source of Vitamin C in the world and contains antioxidants to fight free radicals and prevent cell damage. These antioxidants also work to detoxify and flush out toxins from the body.
    The reward: It nourishes and invigorates the skin, and helps prevent premature ageing. Kakadu plum is also beneficial for blemish-prone skin.

  10. Zinc, when taken internally, provides antioxidants that neutralise free radicals. The mineral is also required for collagen synthesis.
    The reward: Zinc is vital for a healthy complexion — it promotes clear, youthful skin and is essential for healing skin wounds and maintaining supple, hydrated skin.
