Vitamin C: Not just in your OJ
Everyone knows that Vitamin C is a necessary part of a balanced diet but did you know it can also be used to rejuvenate your face? Here’s how it works. Collagen is the protein responsible for the elasticity and strength of skin. But a number of things can decrease collagen production. The first is age. As our bodies age, they naturally produce less collagen. But the second is sun exposure. Over time, UV radiation breaks down the collagen in the skin and slows production of it. This is a problem because, in a nutshell, less collagen equals more wrinkles. But there’s one thing that stimulates collagen production like nothing else. Vitamin C.
Fight free radicals
To put it simply, the amino acids that create the collagen chain need Vitamin C to complete the process. In addition, as an antioxidant, Vitamin C fights free radicals in cells and even fights to repair any damage they’ve left behind. Furthermore, Vitamin C is easily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deeply so that it helps form a protective barrier. Overall, more Vitamin C equals stronger cells which equals less wrinkles.
