Have you ever wished you could look 10 years younger or simply turn back the clock to a time you looked more youthful? What if there was a way to cheat your age and do just that? Dr. Oz has 5 Secrets to make it happen. His guests, Dr. Shirley Madhere and Dr. Leif Rogers both agree that the key to cheating your age is Vitamin C.
They are both plastic surgeons and Dr. Rogers says Vitamin C is something that is naturally in our skin when we are younger, but as we age we start to lose the Vitamin C because of things like sun exposure or from toxins due to things like smoking, which leads to wrinkles and drying of the skin.
He says that it is, however, possible to add back Vitamin C to your skin with topical treatments. While Dr. Madhere agrees with Dr. Rogers, she says the amount of time it takes to see results varies greatly depending on the individual, with some people seeing results as soon as 2-4 weeks, but others noticing a difference until 6-8 weeks.
Dr. Oz says that when you are young your skin is firm and taut due to collagen, but as you age and the collagen breaks down, your skin becomes more loose and less elastic, which is why adding Vitamin C is so critical.
