If vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin, then vitamin C is the sun block vitamin, say some researchers—many of whom also proclaim it the healthy skin vitamin.
In general, vitamin C is important for keeping the skin younger looking, recommends a safe daily vitamin C intake of about 300 to 500 milligrams to maintain skin quality.
Studies have shown that just a minimal amount of ultraviolet rays can deplete exposed skin of vitamin C by 30 percent. Exposure to the ozone in a polluted city can decrease levels of vitamin C by as much as 55 percent. Medical researchers have also found vitamin C to be of some help when applied topically. It has been shown to significantly reduce the amount of so-called free radical damage that occurs from sun exposure. Free radicals are naturally occurring unstable molecules that steal electrons from the body’s healthy molecules to balance themselves. Unchecked, they can cause significant tissue damage.
