Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins in our daily diet. Being water soluble, our body cannot create or store it, yet it is needed consistently for many functions.
Vitamin C is naturally present in the skin and aids collagen production. Having antioxidant properties, Vitamin C helps to prevent the photo-damage caused by ultraviolet rays and limits the free-radical damage. It boosts the formation of barrier lipids which help to prevent loss of hydration from the skin. While keeping the skin rich and supple to prevent wrinkles, Vitamin C also helps to achieve bright and even skin tone and helps to reduce inflammation.
Vitamin C is used to produce collagen which makes our skin firm, flexible and healthy. How does Vitamin C do this?
Vitamin C protects against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular diseases, prenatal health issues, eye diseases, and even skin wrinkling.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, protecting cells so they develop and repair without abnormalities. Our cells are damaged daily, especially due to sun exposure. At the same time sun exposure causes signs of aging, damaging the natural collagen and causing pigmentation problems. By adding Vitamin C topically to our face, we can reduce the effect of aging in our skin.
