Vitamin C: an essential antioxidant for beautiful skin

Known for its anti-fatigue qualities, vitamin C also contains numerous other benefits, notably its ability to protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C keeps your skin radiant-looking for longer. Let's take a closer look at our beauty BFF.

Your skin every day

Vitamin C's anti-oxidant qualities protect your cells against the damage caused by free radicals. Pollution, stress and fatigue are all factors which cause premature cellular ageing, which shows its consequences on your complexion. Want to fight signs of early ageing? Arm yourself with some vitamin C!

The benefits of vitamin C

The main function of this vitamin is to help the body produce collagen, an essential protein in the formation of skin tissue. The skin's surface, which thins over the years, is therefore restored and wrinkles are erased. Cells are protected against ageing, and the body's immune system is reinforced. Over time, the quality of your skin improves and your complexion appears particularly radiant.

Where to find it

Vitamin C is especially concentrated in raw, brightly-colored fruit and vegetables, which contain the most! Red peppers, oranges, strawberries, broccoli and even tomatoes should all feature in your diet. Let salads and smoothies win over your taste buds! Certain cosmetic products also contain this vitamin, enabling you to apply it directly to the skin.
