What does Vitamin C do for your skin?
Having a strong skin barrier allows your skin to retain water and stay hydrated more easily, and you'll be able to prevent having dry and dull skin more easily, as well as helping to minimise skin sensitivity. Pure Vitamin C improves skin structure by strengthening the papilla density of the skin, giving you a firmer, more plump appearance. This enables the skin to transport more nutrients and oxygen to the dermis which also helps prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Having Vitamin C face cream or other products that contain anti oxidants help to prevent damage caused by free radicals - these are things such as pollution, and chemicals that attach themselves to your face and weaken your skin elasticity causing skin damage. Not only this but antioxidants also help to give you glowing skin as antioxidant refers to discouraging the oxidisation of things like oil produced on the skin that turn into blackheads. They also calm irritation and help to smooth fine lines that appear on your skin because of these free radicals.

This means that Vitamin C cream and face care products with these properties help to lighten dark spots on your face caused by sun damage as the skin repair qualities target these areas on the surface of your skin.
In the same way that Vitamin C helps to lighten dark spots, it also helps with acne scarring with the skin repair qualities it contains, combined with a strengthened skin barrier it helps to prevent further acne scarring on the skin.
