Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and its contribution to health has been well-documented. In recent years, its ability to fight cold has been a subject of much debate but still, it yields much prowess in boosting immunity, reducing risks of cardiovascular disease, promoting prenatal and eye health, among others. How about skin health? What part does vitamin C play in the war against wrinkles and a host of undesirable manifestations of poor skin? Turns out vitamin C has earned the stamps of approval from various health authorities. The National Institute of Health notes that the lack of vitamin C is responsible for dry, scaly skin. Urrgh…don’t want that to happen to your skin? Enlist the help of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can stop the cell-damaging effects of free radicals. If free radicals are allowed to build up in the body, it increases the risks of various diseases and speeds up the aging process. Eat a diet rich in antioxidants and use skin care with vitamin C derivatives to nullify free radicals and keep your skin looking youthful, plump and supple. All great adjectives when it comes to skin health. But that’s not all vitamin C can do for your skin. The body needs vitamin C to regenerate growth in various parts of the body: skin, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels. It helps to heal wounds and scars and repair cartilage, bones and teeth. Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that is proven to stimulate collagen production, according to Cleveland Clinic. Various studies have indicated that vitamin C reduces wrinkles, scars and fine lines. This is crucial as collagen production slows down with age and sun damage. But vitamin C is only effective in skin care when it is used in its L-ascorbic acid form. Privy Skin Care has taken note of that and its Super C Serum provides a rich dose of L-ascorbic acid together with collagen-boosting peptides to give your skin the lift it needs.
