Vitamin C may not sounds as exciting or groundbreaking as some of the superfood ingredients and herbs we talk about here on Depths. But the truth is- most of these superfoods are super because of their incredible Vitamin C content. Vitamin C is not only important for immune health and overall wellbeing but it is KEY for skin health. Read on to find out the ways Vitamin C can pack a punch when it comes to your skin!
- Vitamin C regulates collagen production
- High in antioxidants which will protect your skin against collagen killing free radical damage
- Reduces signs of ageing by promoting collagen synthesis and protecting against free radical damage
