Vitamin C is a compound that is naturally abundant in young skin. It’s also the only antioxidant that is proven to boost the production of collagen.
In fact, one of the most powerful functions of vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. Stabilizing your skin’s levels of vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production.
In addition to aiding in collagen production, Vitamin C plays a crucial role in anti oxidant skin care. From the day you are born, your skin is assaulted by environmental pollutants. This, and the aging process, causes free radical formation in your skin. Free radicals are highly reactive compounds that try to destroy your healthy skin cells by trying to take an electron from them.
Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals by donating their electron to the unstable free radicals. This preserves the integrity of your healthy skin molecules.
Taking vitamin C through a supplement or food is beneficial to your health, but to specifically target signs of aging on your face, topical vitamin C is best. In fact, applying vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally.
