Vitamin C is responsible for collagen production, which protects your skin from nasty free radicals (molecules with an unpaired electron) that make your skin look aged and dull. Luckily, Vitamin C is an electron donor, and is here to save the day by literally reversing the damage caused by these free radicals. However, Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient, meaning that daily consumption is essential if you want to keep your skin looking young, bright and free-radical-free!

Benefits of Vitamin C:
- Brightens skin
- Evens skintone
- Reverses and prevents signs of ageing
- Protects skin from UV rays and other environmental damage
