Vitamin C for skin hair and health
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is talked about by health and skin experts. They talk about how great it is and recommend a daily intake of Vitamin C for skin hair and health. Experts recommend a daily intake because vitamin C is water-soluble, which your body does not store it hence we need it in our everyday diet from the fruits and vegetables we consume.
Mary Murphy a nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation said: ” Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy and it is also involved in the production of collagen.” Now if you are a skincare freak, you know that collagen is good for young and youthful looking skin and we also want our body cells to be healthy and protected, now this one reason why you need to start using vitamin C.
As well as its inner body benefits vitamins C also has exterior benefits that I am sure you will love to experience.
Promotes Healthy looking skin
Vitamin C improves the appearance of your skin over time by boosting collagen production, eliminating brown spots, prevents wrinkles which mean younger looking skin. Vitamin C can also oxidise free radicals protecting your skin from sun damage. Taking a little extra Vitamin C also brightens the skin complexion. So if you are after a brighter complexion add some Vitamin C to your skincare routine and observe the improvement.
Promotes healthy hair
Vitamin C is very effective in helping your hair grow and provides your hair with nutrients making it strong and shinier. You can do this by making homemade hair masks and incorporate them into your hair care routine. If you are not a DIY person I will recommend taking supplements.

This can happen if people don’t eat a balanced diet and eat more fortified foods. Not eating enough fruits and vegetables daily is a definite reason why you have a vitamin C deficiency. Common signs to know you are low in vitamin C are joint pains, bone pains, and bleeding gums.
Apart from eating fruits and vegetables, there are other ways in which you can improve your daily vitamin intake and enjoy a more healthy you.
