Vitamin C is an essential (water soluble) vitamin, meaning that your body can't store it. You need Vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin. This is why Vitamin C is a great anti-wrinkle ingredient! Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, along with Vitamin E, beta-carotene, and many other plant-based nutrients. Antioxidants block some of the damage caused by free radicals. The build-up of free radicals over time may be largely responsible for the aging process and can contribute to the development of health conditions such as cancer. Smoking cigarettes lowers

the amount of Vitamin C in the body, so smokers are at a higher risk of deficiency.

Vitamin C benefits to your skin include:

  • Protecting skin cells and skin's support structure from UV-related damage
  • Improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin
  • Strengthening skin's barrier response
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Promoting collagen production
  • Lessening hyperpigmentation
