Vitamin C Builds Collagen

Hello, beautiful people!
Want to have younger-looking skin? Well then your skin needs more collagen! So what exactly is collagen?? We hear about it all day long, but what is it?
Collagen is a protein that is the main component of the dermis, the deeper foundation of the skin. Collagen is a building-block that provides the dermis with strength, elasticity and structure. This allows skin to maintain it’s form, function properly and keeps the skin lifted and looking youthful.
Vitamin C improves collagen production in 2 ways. First, it is an essential component in the process of making collagen. Vitamin C is necessary for amino acids to hold onto each other and form a collagen peptide (it’s part of the glue). Without this process, the molecules would literally just fall apart.
Second, skincare that contains Vitamin C actually stimulates cells (fibroblasts) to ramp up collagen production. This is especially important because collagen production slows dramatically after the age of 25.
