Vitamin C is an antioxidant, and an important step in preventative skin care. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagenâ€”skin’s building blocksâ€”and prevents damage to collagen by protecting bodyâ€”and skinâ€”cells from the baneful effects of free radicals. Vitamin c is therefore the most important vitamin where healthy skin is the concern.
Vitamin C can be found in fresh fruits and vegetables, but supplementing diet with vitamin C hasn’t been shown to amount in a large enough dose of vitamin C to affect collagen production or skin conditions. Because of this, using skin products, such as c serum, with vitamin C is the only way to get any tangible skin benefits of vitamin C. The best skin products have vitamin C in its L-ascorbic acid form; this form of vitamin C penetrates the skin’s layers to maximize benefits. Obagi skin products carries a wide variety of L-ascorbic acid rich skin care products.
