Get Glowing For Summer!

Vitality Unlimited Spa St. Louis Webster Groves

By Amy Williams, Licensed Massage Therapist and Esthetician at Vitality Unlimited Spa

Summer is back and so is the Mimosa Facial at Vitality Unlimited Spa! This specialty facial is packed with Vitamin C to brighten your skin. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is a water-soluble vitamin found in citrus fruits. This nutrient plays an essential role in the biosynthesis of collagen, and it is a powerful antioxidant. Adequate Vitamin C intake is important for immune function, healing, and tissue growth, but it can also be applied topically to provide many benefits to your skin.

Here are the many ways Vitamin C can benefit your skin:

  1. It may improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time, as well as skin texture.
  2. Especially when combined with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, it may help protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
  3. It may help reduce redness and protect against sun damage when combined with Vitamin E.
  4. By blocking the production of pigment in the skin, it can reduce the appearance of dark spots.
  5. The anti-inflammatory properties can help control sebum production in acne-prone skin.
  6. By stimulating collagen production, it may help improve the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
  7. Its antioxidant properties may help the skin repair from the effects of sun damage and pollutants.

During the Mimosa Facial, your Esthetician will perform a skin analysis to determine the best form of exfoliation and high-impact serums for your skin type. Then, a Vitamin C mask from Skin Fitness will be applied to your skin. This mask stimulates and protects the skin with the help of L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and active fruit enzyme powders. The fruit enzymes digest dead proteins and exfoliate your skin, allowing the Vitamin C to work more effectively to strengthen and reinforce your skin’s ability to produce collagen. The unique combination of Vitamin C and fruit enzymes will provide your skin with essential collagen boosters, while also smoothing your skin for a more radiant appearance.
