Have you ever noticed that your acne has gotten better after being out in the sun? It's because of vitamin C! You can achieve a similar result by applying vitamin c in high concentrations to your skin! How? The antioxidant properties of vitamin C neutralizes free radicals and prevents breakouts.

3. Reduce Wrinkles

Vitamin C boosts the production of collagen which means a younger looking skin! Collagen is the key to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful look.

4. Lock in Moisture
