The Benefits of Vitamin C For Your Skin And Hair

Vitamin C can be found in many fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits. As the best smoothie bar in Pasadena, Naturewell Juice Bar has a wide variety of juices, smoothies and acai bowls that are full of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.

Some of the benefits of vitamin C for your skin and hair include:

Sun Protection

Exposure to the sun means that free radicals develop on our skin, damaging it both in the short and long term. Regular Vitamin C intake will fight off the free radicals, limiting sun damage and skin discolouring. It is still important to wear sunscreen containing an SPF suitable for your skin type.

Moisture

Whilst vitamin C is not a moisturiser in itself, it certainly helps to keep skin elastic (due to collagen) and helps oxygen travel around our face, taking away unwanted blemishes and making skin look radiant. Beauty counters will be lined with vitamin C oil and vitamin C serum, all making claims that they will give you younger looking skin, and, just like mum, they are correct.

Improves Hair Growth

A lack of vitamin C may lead to dry hair and split ends, as your hair will be lacking in the nutrients that it needs. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C, promote healthy hair, which means that there will be constant hair growth.

Collagen

Vitamin C has a positive influence in the production of collagen, which aids our body in repairing tissue and supporting bones and organs. Essentially, collagen gives our skin elastically, that is sadly taken away by modern living standards, such as pollution and air conditioning. Just as collagen benefits the inside of our bodies, it works wonders on the outside too. The creation of collagen is boosted by gives life to our skin by creating tension and plumpness, that reduces the look of wrinkles.
