The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help fight free radicals and damage caused by UV radiation.
Vitamin C will boost your skin's collagen production to give you firmer, more plump skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles out.
When added to your daily skin care routine, vitamin C provides a range of benefits, from evening out your complexion, shielding skin from the visible impacts of pollution, significantly helping and improving the hydration and leaving your skin looking younger, longer.
When looking for a suitable vitamin C product, finding the right concentration is really important. Also the way that the vitamin C is produced is a key factor in how efficient will work for your skin.
Vitamin C can break down in UV light and lessens its potency, this is why is best to keep your vitamin C skin care in a dark environment.
