What does Vitamin C do?
Vitamin C is one of the most potent anti-aging ingredients. An antioxidant that destroys free radicals that break down collagen (which leads to wrinkles), it jumpstarts collagen production for firmer, healthier skin.
How does Vitamin C improve dark spots?
With continued topical use, vitamin C can help prevent dark spots from forming in the first place.
What are Dr. Dennis Gross' tips?
- Apply vitamin C directly to skin with targeted treatments; eating vitamin C-rich foods is not as effective
- Use topical vitamin C mixed with chelators to more efficiently destroy free radicals, which can lead to visible signs of aging
- Combine a vitamin C treatment with a gentle peel to help fade sunspots faster
