- Aside from eating your citrus fruits and vegetables, Vitamin C can be absorbed topically through your pores. Skin benefits include stimulating cell turnover and rejuvenation through empowering the production of collagen, which is notoriously known to improve skin's strength and elasticity by tightening the dermis (thickest layer of skin).
- Vitamin C is enriched with powerful antioxidants, which have powerful anti-ageing properties protecting the skin from UV exposure as well as repairing sun damaged skin - lightening hyperpigmentation and leaving an even skin tone.
How To Increase Vitamin C Intake
Our bodies can’t produce Vitamin C even though the vitamin is an essential antioxidant to keep our bodies and skin healthy, by strengthening natural defences. The recommended daily intake is between 65-90mg a day and can be found in fruit, veg and skincare.
- Fruit and Veg: The water soluble Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits such as oranges, strawberries, kiwi, mango and pineapple. Vegetables such as broccoli, kale, potatoes and brussel sprouts also contain Vitamin C.
