Vitamin C along with Vitamin A, can reverse skin changes in both sundamage and the chronological aging process.
Signs of aging are associated with loss of collagen production and damaged collagen. So it stands to reason that the use of Vitamin C is a great line of defense and is imperative as a treatment for aging skin. Nutritionally, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, fish and lean cuts of meat is also important as well as at least 500 mg of Vitamin C daily.
Topical Vitamin C in at least 3-5% concentrations will help to stop damage and begin to reverse it. This will take time as cellular turnover on average is about 28 days, however monthly chemical peel treatments will speed up this process and the use of Vitamin C serum along with Vitamin E will go a long way to rebuild collagen. Vitamin C will also help reduce pigmented spots by reducing melanin production.
