Get the Vitamin C Glow

Vitamin C is the skin’s best friend.

At Amy Rae Aesthetics we are big believers in approaching skin health from the inside out. It is important when choosing your products & supplements to keep your skin’s health in mind.

We love Vitamin C because it works as an antioxidant; slowing the rate of free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines & wrinkles. New research shows that ascorbic acid 2-phosphate, a derivative of Vitamin C, not only neutralizes free radicals, but also reverses DNA damage.

This valuable information regarding topical Vitamin C application was first introduced to the American Academy of Dermatology in 1995. It was observed that over time, Vitamin C cream usage helps to ward off both sun-induced and environmentally-induced skin damage by neutralizing harsh free radicals.

Studies show that a topical Vitamin C application goes directly into the skin and provides pharmacological levels of protection. It becomes an inherent part of the skin, and is unaffected by bathing, exercise, clothing, or makeup.

It is believed that Vitamin C is useful for treating sun damage and other inflammatory conditions: including acne, rosacea and eczema. It is also safe to use on children.

In other words, this stuff WORKS!


We carry Epicuren Discovery’s Vitamin CXc cream here at Amy Rae Aesthetics. Epicuren’s high potency formula, which contains 15% concentrations of stabilize/zed ascorbyl glucosamine (natural vitamin C extra), is absorbed by the skin where it is then efficiently converted by skin enzymes into L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C antioxidants). This cream is known to hydrate, brighten & tighten skin. It has a lipid (oil) base and it known to dramatically reduce the visible signs of aging.

Use Vitamin C topically or internally. Preferably BOTH!


When taken internally, Vitamin C becomes a vital partner in the production of collagen. Vitamin C also helps protect the fat-soluble Vitamin A & Vitamin E, as well as fatty acids, from oxidation. We recommend Garden of Life’s Vitamin Code Raw Vitamin C.

Vitamin C prevents and cures the disease scurvy, and can be beneficial in the treatment of iron deficiency, also known as anemia.

Improve your complexion’s overall radiance with Vitamin C!

And feel free to call us with any questions.

For your health, Amy Rae
