To improve your zest in life, fill it with vitamin C…
Ascorbic acid or vitamin C contributes to many functions in the body, including the absorption of iron. Large doses of vitamin C generally do not produce toxicity because, being a water-soluble vitamin, it is simply expelled through the urine.
What about beauty?
- Ascorbic acid reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
- Activates the synthesis of collagen and is an epidermal repairer.
- Insensitive skin, it minimizes irritation and makes the absorption of creams more effective.
- By applying vitamin C to your face, you can have smooth, clean and shiny skin.
What about the face?
- It has antioxidant properties, so it protects the skin from free radicals, typical of polluted environments.
- Visibly reduces expression lines and signs of age. This is due to its contribution to the production of collagen in the skin.
- It helps reduce skin damage caused by the sun, as well as favours the elimination of spots from the face.
- Promotes blood circulation, so after a facial vitamin C treatment, the effects of moisturizers and serums applied later are doubled.
How to use vitamin C?
