Whether you’re over the hill or just barely reaching the top, wrinkles around your eyes can age you beyond your years. Fortunately for you there are numerous skincare products available that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with all-natural ingredients such as Vitamin C. Cellex-c , for example, claims to be the company that “started the whole vitamin C revolution,” and manufacturers tout themselves as being “the first” and “still demonstrably the best.”
Cellex-C uses patented Complex in High-potency Serum that is supposedly designed to work synergistically, encouraging younger, firmer looking skin, and as an additional bonus, Cellex-C claims to improve your results with extended use, even helping to “make your skin look 5 to 10 years younger.”
However, is Cellex-C really the best product on the market? Or is this company simply surfing on all the hype that its advertisers have generated?
Although it may take a little bit of searching before you’ll find any mention of ingredients for any of Cellex-C’s skincare products, you may eventually stumble across the fact that Cellex-C supposedly contains unknown concentrations of Vitamin C, Zinc, and Tyrosine.
Vitamin C, of course, is the top ingredient for all of the Cellex-C products, and it’s been used for years as a powerful antioxidant. When used correctly, Vitamin C can nourish skin and aid in the elimination of harmful environmental toxins and free radicals, resulting in a longer lifespan for skin cells and smoother looking skin.
Unfortunately vitamin C does little to actively promote the reduction of wrinkles or other signs of age, as it lacks the ability to stimulate collagen (a substance that increases the production of skin cells), elastin (a substance that keeps skin flexible and durable), or even relax facial muscles (which have been known to cause wrinkles in the first place).
As for the other two most popular ingredients, Zinc and Tyrosine, although they too have been used in cosmetics for years as a method for improving overall skin tone and texture, neither ingredient is especially useful for reversing signs of old age.
What we Think
Overall, Cellex-C does have some potential for improving the overall appearance of your skin, effectively moisturizing and protecting it against future damage. Unfortunately, Cellex-C currently retails for $110.00 for a mL, which is extremely pricey for a product that might not produce the wrinkle-fighting results you’re looking for. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a way to simply brighten up the skin around your eyes and have plenty of money to burn, then perhaps Cellex-C is a good fit.
