It is not only important to make sure your diet is rich in Vitamin C, but it is also important that your skin gets that same attention. The daily use of topical Vitamin C has been shown to improve skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of the skin (including dark spots and acne). It also may help to slow early skin aging and prevent sun damage. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals that come in to contact with your skin from external sources in daily life. These free radicals may be generated by normal metabolic processes in the body, or by exposure to carcinogens or other harmful substances in the environment. Use your vitamin C in the morning and evening after cleansing, but before moisturizing. Be sure to apply a daily sunscreen to further protect your skin!
