Vitamin C plays a key role in ageing gracefully. This nutrient is a strong antioxidant that has proven benefits when applied topically to the skin and when taken internally through food or as a supplement. Some of the benefits of using vitamin C are increased collagen production, prevention, protection, and treatment of uv damaged skin, and a brighter and more even complexion.
