Vitamin C beauty products are revered for their ability to brighten the skin and boost collagen production for skin the appears more youthful. Antioxidant-rich Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that's not produced by the body and needs to be received from external sources, yet many skincare products are non-stabilized or packed with Vitamin C derivatives.
