You know very well the benefits of Vitamin C to boost your immune system. But did you know that it can work wonders on your skin, too? If you’ve had it with dull skin, read on to find out how it can answer your problems.
According to research, topical Vitamin C—meaning those that come in moisturizer or serum form—actually helps boost collagen production, protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and lightens dark spots.
This means that once you incorporate Vitamin C in your daily beauty routine, your skin will ~*celebrate*~. Because one, it will boost collagen production, meaning your skin will be firmer. Two, it will save your skin from sun damage, and three, it will improve your natural complexion by brightening dark spots and acne marks. The result? Younger-looking, radiant skin.
Word of caution though, just make sure not to OD on the Vitamin C-infused beauty products. Research has found that products with a Vitamin C concentration as low as 0.6 percent can already give you anti-aging benefits.
