Vitamin C? But I don’t have a cold!
DEC 11, 2018 BY MONICA SILVA
Who knew? Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and can help keep you healthy, but did you know that it’s also great for your skin? A good masque or moisturizing crème with Vitamin C as the main ingredient can increase collagen synthesis, help repair free radical damage caused by the sun’s powerful UV rays, aid with regeneration of Vitamin E, assist with healing wounds, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Vitamin C, as with all vitamins, gets to your skin through your bloodstream. When concentrations of Vitamin C in the skin are measured, the highest concentration is in the top layer, which is called the epidermis. However, the Vitamin C in this layer decreases with aging, time in the sun, and exposure to any and all pollutants.
