Why Vitamin C Is Essential For Glowing Skin

Our skin has an important function. As our largest organ, our skin is our first line of defence. It keeps us healthy, protects us from pollutants, and helps us detox. Our skin works hard for us, so it’s important to return the favour. How do we do that? By eating nutrients like collagen and Vitamin C, we can show our skin some love and get that holy glow to boot.

Vitamin C is a powerful, natural antioxidant 

Vitamin C is found in spinach, kale, kiwi, broccoli, lemons, and oranges. Other less common foods containing high amounts of Vitamin C are sea buckthorn, maqui berry, and acerola cherry.  These unique fruits are known for their abundance of naturally occurring antioxidant-rich Vitamin C.  They are highly sought after in the cosmetic and supplement industries for their skin-enhancing properties. These potent plants can help brighten, heal, and firm. 

Vitamin C is a natural protector against skin damage

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is one of the most powerful antioxidants. It is shown to protect the skin from free radicals – atoms that damage cells causing ageing.  They also reduce pigmentation and brown spots, and help the body produce collagen. The antioxidants in Vitamin C scavenge for free radicals to prevent cellular ageing.

Vitamin C supports the natural production of collagen 

Our bodies are constantly producing collagen to maintain and repair connective tissues lost to regular wear and tear. Vitamin C supports key amino acids, proline and lysine.  Both of these play a role in the formation of collagen, ligaments, and tendons. Without Vitamin C assisting the change of proline into hydroxyproline or lysine, collagen production can’t happen.

Vitamin C is crucial to stimulate collagen production and nourish the skin from within. Consumed orally or applied topically, it can greatly improve skin condition and enhance natural glow. The Iluminos Rejuvenate blend includes a powerful boost of antioxidant rich Vitamin C.  Boost your collagen production and look your best with a daily dose.
