When it comes to getting glowing beautiful skin one ingredient that instantly strikes your mind is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant which is also known as ascorbic acid that can protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can damage skin cells and accelerate the aging process.

Vitamin C promotes collagen production that maintains skin elasticity and strength. As we age collagen production decreases causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin C can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin firmness.

Furthermore, Vitamin C brightens the skin and improves its texture by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C helps to improve skin hydration by enhancing the skin's ability to retain moisture.

Vitamin C is an excellent ingredient to incorporate into your skin care routine as it offers several benefits below are some Vitamin C enriched products by Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic to incorporate into your skincare routine.

  • Drink Fresh Juices: Freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices are an easy way to boost your vitamin C intake. You can combine citrus fruits, leafy greens, and other vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables to create a delicious and nutritious juice.

Remember that vitamin C is sensitive to heat, so it's best to eat these foods raw or lightly cooked to preserve their vitamin C content.
