Vitamin CWe always hear people being told to take vitamin C when you have a cold. The experts say vitamin C is incredibly essential for healthy skin care. This nutrient is responsible for creating and maintaining collagen, also referred to as the “glue that holds the body together.” Vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens blood vessels and gives skin elasticity and strength.


Vitamin C is water soluble. The body does not accumulate or store it. So it’s very important to get your daily dose of vitamin C.  Just getting your vitamin C can improve your hair, nails and skin. Many over the counter skin care products have the vitamin in their ingredients. The day spa offers skin care treatments and facials including vitamin C too. 


Vitamin C wards off signs of aging. Studies have been published stating that middle-aged women who consume more vitamin C from food sources appeared to have fewer lines and wrinkles, and fewer problems with dryness. The experts say that vitamin C delays the signs of aging due to free radical damage.
