    Vitamin C Blocks Dark Spots

    by Dr. Anjali Butani

    Vitamin C blocks tyrosinase reaction to stop brown spot, pigment formation.


    Hello, beautiful people!

    Brown spots (aka dark spots, age spots, sun spots) are caused by numerous reactions that occur to increase melanin (pigment) in the skin. Each reaction requires several steps and several enzymes to occur perfectly before that unwanted brown spot shows up on the skin.

    Vitamin C blocks one of the major enzymes necessary in these reactions, tyrosinase. With tyrosinase inhibited, the spot has less of chance of developing.  A stubborn spot can definitely still form, but with Vitamin C fighting back in your skincare, you'll definitely see a reduction in those unwanted brown spots!
