Updated on October 5, 2014

Vitamin C and Younger Looking Skin

Vitamin C is a vital nutrient which plays a critical role in the repair of tissues, wound healing and also maintaining teeth and bone health. Though Vitamin C deficiency is a very rare condition, given that it is easily available from most food sources, smokers are at a high risk of having an insufficiency of this essential vitamin.

With regards to its role in the management of skin conditions, vitamin C helps fight pimples, acne, blemishes, scars, and enlarged pores. Furthermore, the vitamin helps improve the texture as well as the tone of your skin and hence has an important part to play in skin rejuvenation.

Vitamin C Therapy: Getting a Glowing Skin

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is one of the most important anti-aging vitamins; it has been widely promoted as the most essential beauty element, and notably, it has lived up to all its claims. Skin care experts say, this vitamin enhances the skin from inside out, eliminates acne and scars, keeps you skin radiant and glowing and also irons out fine lines and wrinkles.

Researchers at the Leicester University and Institute of Cellular and Molecular Biology, Portugal, were finally able to explain how Vitamin C contributes to improving skin health:

  • Vitamin C acts on the human skin fibroblasts and stimulates dormant or inactive fibroblasts to multiply and helps them to migrate to the damaged tissue, thereby hastening healing of wounds.
  • Vitamin C also protects the skin by enhancing the capacity of fibroblasts to repair DNA cells, which might have mutated due to exposure to sun or because of free radical damage and thus decelerates the process of aging, wrinkling and skin cancer.

  • Skin toners that contain Algae Extract and Willow Bark: enhance skin tone and texture and diminish large and unattractive pores.
  • Moisturizing creams and anti wrinkle creams containing Vitamin C, Green Tea Extract and Ginko Biloba: nourish the skin and keep it well hydrated.
  • Anti aging serums pass on the potent anti-oxidant properties of Vitamin C directly in to the skin and ward off damage by free radicals.

In addition to local application of Vitamins, consuming Vitamin C supplements can also be beneficial. also, make sure that you add plenty of vitamin C rich foods to your daily diet.
