Nurse Ailish O’Gorman on PCA C-Strength 20% with Vitamin E

Nurse Ailish delved into the science for us and said:

“This one of my favourite products! The skin relies on anti-oxidants for protection against pollutants such as UV rays and environmental pollution such as exhaust fumes and cigarette smoke, all of which we are exposed to on a daily basis. It’s these pollutants that cause free radicals and photo-ageing, damaging DNA protein and lipids that cause skin cells to age and die. …that’s the bad news!

The good news is that PCA C-Strength contains L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) which is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body and skin. This water-soluble vitamin stimulates collagen synthesis, provides sun protection and protects the skin by reducing free radicals that would otherwise destroy skin cells. Using this product daily helps improve skin texture and tone, brighten dull complexions reduce brown spots and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

As a water-soluble vitamin applying L-asorbic acid directly to the skin ensures a high concentration of this antioxidant directly to where it is needed increasing photo-protection, cell repair and rejuvenation. It is a must have when it comes to protecting your skin. I recommend this serum to all of my patients.

Why is PCA C Strength superior to other brands?

I get asked this all the time and there are actually many reasons. Firstly this product has a low PH which balances your skin’s natural acidic PH.

In addition, the 20% strength means your skin is getting a high dose and with the added Vitamin E, gives your skin added protection and healing.

Also, generally Vitamin C is unstable when exposed to air and water, ie it loses its benefits. This PCA product is encapsulated in a silicone gel so it stays stable and holds the vitamin in your skin – so you are receiving the full benefits.

What I have found with my patients is that skin looks brighter, their skin recovers faster from treatments like fraxel and really helps optimise results.

In short – PCA Skin C- strength with Vitamin C – is a must-have product!
