Why Vitamin C is important for your skin

Vitamin C helps to protect your skin from the effects of ageing. Vitamin C is not only necessary for collagen production and maintenance of good skin health, Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals in the skin.

A Vitamin C serum can stimulate collagen production and reduces the signs of ageing and wrinkles. It helps to protect your skin against UV rays. 

Vitamin C is also the perfect booster for dull looking skin. It helps to boost and brighten the skin significantly. It will leave your skin looking very fresh and glowing, this of course gives a youthful looking appearance.

When looking for vitamin C serum, you must look out for products that have ascorbic or L ascorbic acid included as this is the active ingredient of Vitamin C. 

You can also eat lots of vitamin C to help your skin from the inside out too. The Vitamin C rich foods to look out for are:
