Active Ingredient: Vitamin C
What It Does: Another antioxidant, Vitamin C helps your body produce collagen, a protein responsible for keeping the skin’s surface firm. It also acts as an anti-aging agent, protecting or possibly even reversing damage caused by excessive sun exposure.
Other Sources: Bell peppers, broccoli, and spinach. “Try to eat the rainbow in veggies daily,” Dr. Treloar says. In addition to being good sources of Vitamin C, “all those colors and flavors come from plant polyphenolic molecules that have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions. The carotenoid pigments participate in skin tone and protect against sunburn and probably against aging and skin cancer, too.”
