The Roles of Vitamin C in Skin Health

Our skin is really an amazing part of our body and we need to keep it healthy; it’s the bridge between the external environment and our inner body system and its appearance bears solid truth about our health in general. As we may know, our skin protects us from unwanted chemical threats, UV radiation and also from dehydration. One of the things that our skin needs is Vitamin C. The lack in Vitamin C could make our skin fragile and slows down wound healing process. The high amount of Vitamin C in the skin means that our skin has a good collagen formation and antioxidant protection. In collagen formation, it serves as the supporting factor to stabilize the collagen tertiary structure and gene expression. As an antioxidant, it neutralises oxidants in pollutants or UV radiation. You can also find that Vitamin C increases the migration of dermal fibroblasts for effective wound healing. As much as we want to protect our skin, we still face challenges that deteriorates the function of it, such as ageing – skin loses its elasticity, chemical and UV exposures – such as sunburn which causes redness, swelling and heat and injuries. With all the benefits mentioned above, Vitamin C has indeed an important role to protect our skin in facing these challenges. With the collagen formation and the building skin resistance to UV exposure, these have shown us how having enough intake of Vitamin C is really important for our skin health, which in turn giving us the optimal overall health level too.
