- How Does Vitamin C Improve Dark Spots?
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.
Vitamin C is far more efficient when applied topically than it is via supplements.
Sunspots form as a result of excess pigmentation due to too much sun exposure. Vitamin C can fade unsightly spots and restore a more even skin tone when applied topically. As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C helps speed the skin’s natural healing properties and helps inhibit the production of enzymes that can lead to brown spots. Chemical exfoliation with gentle alpha and beta hydroxy acids will also help to fade sun spots and discoloration.
