3 Vitamin C Mask Recipes

Vitamin C is really good for your skin. Why? There are two major, anti-aging benefits that are enough to make you put one of these vitamin C mask recipes on your to do list.

1. Collagen boosting

Collagen is a protein found in connective tissue that helps to keep your skin smooth and young looking (the other is elastin). It naturally breaks down as time passes, aka you age, and because of sun exposure. This breakdown = wrinkles, sagging, and thinner skin.

There are a lot of factors that go into the collagen boosting solution matrix — diet, lifestyle habits, daily skin care products — vitamin C face masks are a small piece of the puzzle, but a helpful, attainable piece. Vitamin C is a nutrient that is used for the production of new, healthy collagen.

2. Antioxidant protection

The other reason to love this vitamin is antioxidant activity. Powerful C scavenges free radicals and helps to stop, prevent, and sidetrack some of the destruction to your skin from time and beautiful, golden sunlight.

Try these homemade vitamin C mask recipes and give your skin a fighting chance against wrinkles and other signs of aging.
