Collagen gives substance and structure to the skin but naturally as we age we start to create less of it. This in turn leads to fine lines starting to form in our skin and sagging to occur.
Vitamin C also is a fantastic lightener, evening out your skin tone and fading dark spots from hormones or sun damage. Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid inhibits the production of melanin (that causes the skint to colour) and is also a fantastic antioxidant protecting against UV rays. Note, it shouldn’t be used in the place of an SPF but just alongside it!
