Our skin has its own protection system, but unprotected exposure to the sun, environmental pollution, smoking or stress can increase the amount of free radicals, deteriorating collagen and elastin fibres and causing cells to age prematurely, leading to premature and deep wrinkles.

In this scenario, Vitamin C can be a great ally for the skin. Here are some of its benefits:

  • It is an antioxidant: it helps to neutralise free radicals that accelerate ageing, helping to combat exposure to pollution by protecting the skin against oxidative-induced ageing.
  • Protects against UV damage: limits the skin’s reaction to UV rays that can accelerate ageing and cause wrinkles. It also reduces pigmentation problems and spots caused by UV rays.
  • Improves skin radiance: thanks to its exfoliating action, it helps to remove dead skin cells that can lead to a dull appearance.
  • Stimulates collagen production: this substance is essential for keeping skin supple as we age. Vitamin C helps stimulate its production, so skin stays soft and smooth for much longer.

For all these reasons, Vitamin C has become one of the essential ingredients in the best anti-wrinkle creams.
