Many people ask me what the difference is between my product containing Vitamin C versus other skincare products. Vitamin C must be formulated in a way that is stable to be absorbed into the skin and be effective. This is particularly tricky when mixed with other ingredients. There must also be a high enough concentration of Vitamin C present to be effective. Also, only certain molecular forms of vitamin C can be absorbed in the skin and be effective. All of these details are important. As a molecular biology graduate from Harvard and published skin researcher, I cared a lot about these details and I worked extensively with my manufacturer to make sure the Vitamin C in my products was exactly the way I wanted it. When formulated correctly, Vitamin C is one of the most effective anti-aging and skin health ingredients. @mdglam Vitamin C products are stable and effective due to the unique compositions and methods of its ingredient blends.
Here is how Vitamin C works. Exposure to harmful UV rays creates free radicals which damage collagen as well as other components of skin integrity - antioxidants like Vitamin C neutralize free radicals and protect from this damage. There have been many double blind placebo controlled studies that have shown that Vitamin C increases collagen in the skin and the integrity of the extracellular matrix of the skin. Studies using optic profilometry which measures skin surface profiles have demonstrated that Vitamin C improves skin texture, fine wrinkling, roughness, and skin elasticity. Vitamin C, which combined with Vitamin E is more effective, is one of the key ingredients in the MDGLAM NIGHT moisturizer. #mdglam#surgeon#skincare#plasticsurgeon#antiaging

Don't miss my Skincare Saturday Q&A on @beautybydrcat IG stories and my Snapchat: beautybydrcat. Turning 40 is definitely an eye opening (literally) for many since the eyes are one of the first areas that show signs of aging. Therefore knowing how to take care of the eye area that has very thin skin, shows dryness, and is usually more sensitive than the rest of the face is very important. #mdglam#skincare#beautytips

A lot of people get confused by the different marketing campaigns and don’t know what to use. I personally have been passionate about skin and skincare my entire life. My mother taught me at a young age how to care for my skin – I think I’ve been using sunscreen and skin care products before I could walk!
A few years ago, I got fed up with all the marketing gimmicks and used my Harvard Molecular & Cellular Biology background to actually look at the scientific data and research behind different anti-aging skin care ingredients. My research was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal entitled “The truth about over-the-counter topical anti-aging products: a comprehensive review.” From that research and through continued scientific investigation, I developed my skin care line MD GLAM @mdglam. Like many women, I always felt confused about which products to use and in what combination and I’ve always been skeptical of marketing claims and just Just like you’d look at the ingredients in the food you eat – you should look at the ingredients in what you put on your skin.
