We have all heard Vitamin C is great for our overall health, but what about our skin? Here's the scoop on C.
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage-- which can cause the breakdown of collagen, skin dryness and fine lines & wrinkles. It is key in the production of collagen, which aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and helps to create scar tissue, which aids in skin healing and restoration. Research has shown that ascorbic acid, a derivative of Vitamin C, has the power to not only neutralize free radicals, but actually reverse damage to your DNA. This is great news for those days of being a sun worshiper. Where can we source Vitamin C? Try eating Vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables and supplementing your skin topically in your daily organic skincare products.
