Do you know how to feed your collagen production?

Here at Mikel Kristi we know a thing or two about what is needed to build, repair , and enhance collagen production on all levels. We believe in a multi faceted approach to looking and feeling our best.

Lucky for us, there is one property that enhances collagen production at an amazing rate. When applied topically and taken internally, this vitamin helps to restructure the protein matrix that keeps your skin healthy, boyant, and resilient. That property is none other than  Vitamin C.


We know… Vitamin C doesn’t have the same alluring title as some of the newest anti-aging headliners, but make no mistake, it's a repairative powerhouse when it comes to protecting your skin from more advanced signs of aging. Specifically, when it comes to helping correct and inhibit brown spots and splotches due to unprotected sun exposure, as well as increasing the skin and body’s ability to create collagen.

NOT ALL VITAMIN C IS CREATED EQUAL!

Here are a few of the finer highlights when using this potent anti-ager in your daily routine.

  • Your body cannot produce Vitamin C on its own, so it is vital that you both apply it topically and ingest it internally on a daily basis, enabling the collagen all over your body to reap the benefits of easier repair and regeneration.
  • Vitamin C is easily degraded when exposed to the environment. That means a product may contain Vitamin C, but it will be close to useless unless it is protected from the elements prior to application. We address and resolve this issue by using a cutting edge delivery system in our products containing Vitamin C, which encapsulates the molecules in a lipid base for protection and increased absorption by the skin.
  • The best time of day to apply Vitamin C is in the morning. This is due to its ability to protect the skin throughout the day from possible damage caused by sun exposure. Coupled with a high-grade zinc oxide based sunscreen (and mineral makeup if you choose), provides you with a hefty level of protection from the damaging rays of the sun.


Starting your day with a healthy dose of Vitamin C inside the body and out is one of the best ways to  protect your cells, regenerate your collagen production, and ensure vibrant healthy skin on every level. Our C Radiance Moisturizer, and our reformulated, soon-to-be-released Vital C Repair Serum have you covered with the most powerful and absorbable form of topical Vitamin C on the market. Apply daily and you can rest assured that your skin is getting the nutrition, revitalization, and protection it needs!

Safety & Sun Protection

Living in Arizona means that we are in the sun almost every day of the year, and summertime activities, vacations, picnics and pool parties mean we are in the sun even more. But regular exposure to the sun can wreak havoc on the skin, leading to unsightly brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, large pores, saggy skin, wrinkles and skin cancers. To prevent these changes, a broad-spectrum sunblock needs to be applied daily.
