Everyone knows that our body needs vitamin C; but does everyone know it’s also required for your skin to stay youthful and young looking? I’m sure at some point you’ve said “I think I’m getting sick” and no-doubt someone said, “take some vitamin C pills or eat an orange.” Our bodies do not produce Vitamin C; therefore, it has to be absorbed through food, vitamins and applied topically to the skin. We all were taught Vitamin C is an immune booster that keeps the doctor away, but no one told us its other vital role is to help in the production of collagen, which keeps the wrinkles away.

Collagen is found in our tissue, and it works like glue to connect our cells together. Our bodies are continually making collagen to repair and maintain tissue structure in our skin due to UVA/UVB damage, free radicals and the normal aging process. Vitamin C is required for collagen to form. Collagen has anti-aging properties, and its primary responsibility is to keep the skin firm, resilient and youthful looking. Without vitamin C, your collagen doesn’t function efficiently…. which results in less firm skin and wrinkles (And nobody I know wants that!)
