Vitamin C is so crucial in the production of collagen, that no vitamin C means no collagen synthesis. Specialized cells called fibroblasts utilize vitamin C along with three amino acids to create collagen. Plus, vitamin C also stimulates collagen production by stabilizing collagen mRNA and increasing the proliferation rates of fibroblasts themselves. But that’s not all, vitamin C also acts as a powerful antioxidant eliminating free radicals. UV (sun) light is one of the main sources of free radicals in the skin. In fact, evidence suggests that vitamin C may protect skin from precancerous changes caused by UV exposure. The good news is that including a high-quality vitamin C into your ingestible skincare routine can have a real impact on the health of your skin.
