What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is, among other things, necessary for the formation of connective tissue. strengthens the skin, which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of lines, for example. Vitamine C also helps against hyperpigmentation. It prevents the accumulation of melanin cells and evens out your complexion.
