Benefits of Vitamin C for skin
In natural skin care, Vitamin C is an anti-ageing wonder! One of the greatest benefits of Vitamin C for skin is its powerful brightening abilities. Vitamin C is actually known to help brighten the overall complexion and help give damaged skin a beautiful even tone, which makes it perfect for targeting age spots and environmental damage as well as dark under-eye circles. Vitamin C is also known to help boost your skin's natural collagen production, as it is essential in the formation of collagen. This means it Vitamin C serums can help plump mature or dehydrated skin and can be used around fine lines and wrinkles.
