The C that fends off wrinkles

Not only does it fight cancer, heart disease and memory loss but it can actually prevent WRINKLES. Most beauty products boast of antioxidants, and the C is an antioxidant that can help turn back the time.

In a chemical study, experts discovered that people who consumed foods rich in vitamin C had fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those who took only small amounts of vitamin C. It helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles because the C helps form collagen. So there... if you want to have younger looking skin, use a topical vitamin C treatment daily after washing your face and before you slather on moisturizer or sun-screen so it penetrates skin.

Another healthy tip Liz. I am glad I like eating all of them.. especially the citrus group: from pomelo, to orange, to mandarino, to all.. and lemon is always in our cuisine.

And the bestpart of this is, aside from healt giving benefit, there is also the beauty benefit in it.

Hi Liza! I agree, Vitamin C covers almost everything. I am a skin-problematic person (used to have pimps when I was younger)may I also add Vitamin E for the skin. I take 2 everyday, the results are nice..

Hi Liza.
Vitamins and other nutrients can really help our skin. I notice differences when I have less healthy meals for some time, I get pimples, even in my age, lol.
I have a little surprise for you in Night Clicks.
Cheers!

Anything that helps prevent wrinkles and "turn back time" I am all for!! Guess I'll be stocking up on rich Vitamin C foods. I love the tip about the topical vitamin c treatment---absolutely going to do this!!

Thanks so much for this information. I love all the useful advice you share on your blog--I read it daily!

Sounds good. I wonder if that also applies to taking "C" in pill form? I know it sounds obvious, but maybe taking "C" in its natural form has a different affect. After all, the study was conducted on people who consumed foods that were high in vitamin 'C".

We'll C.

happy trails.

Very interesting! It's sure worth a try!!!

My dentist also told me that C is good for gum health, so what you say here makes good sense. Do you think it's more important to eat/ingest vitamin C then to topically apply it? I do use a moisturizer with vitamin C in it, but I also take supplements.
