You may know that ingesting vitamin C (found in fruits like oranges and tomatoes) is great for your body, but it can do wonders for your skin too. “Vitamin C is a great multifunctional skin care ingredient,” says Emma Hobson, Education Manager for the International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica. “It is needed by the skin to help produce and maintain healthy collagen, it acts as a skin brightening agent for sun-induced pigmentation, and it’s a great antioxidant, assisting the control of oxidation.” Ready to try it for yourself?
