Vitamin C is mostly marketed as a nutritional supplement or food that will kick your cold’s butt. In truth, the benefits of vitamin C go beyond the common cold; it will protect you against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even superficial signs of aging.
Young skin is full of Vitamin C. As we age our skin will naturally lose nutrients, including Vitamin C. Exposure to harmful UV radiation (i.e. sunbathing and tanning beds), cigarette smoke and other external pollutants will accelerate the decline of Vitamin C in our skin, furthering signs of aging. Vitamin C will help fight against the damaging effects of time, environment and bad habits.
Vitamin C benefits your skin in two ways: 1) as an antioxidant and 2) as a booster of collagen production. Both functions are crucial when trying to preserve and maintain healthy and youthful looking skin.
Vitamin C is found in:
Green and red pepper
However, when trying to reduce or reverse signs of aging, topical Vitamin C is significantly more effective than food intake or vitamin pill.
