The antioxidant properties of vitamin C make it a vital molecule for skin health. Studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat UV-induced photodamage and stimulate repair of DNA damaged skin. The use of vitamin C in topical applications has been shown to decrease wrinkling, decrease apparent roughness, and increase production of collagen over time.
Vitamin C is found normally in both the dermis and epidermis. Aging, exposures to UV light, and pollutants all cause a decline in vitamin C content transported from the bloodstream.
Vitamin C is not a sunscreen because it does not absorb light in the UVA or UVB spectrum. However, Vitamin C provided to the skin through topical application allows ascorbic acid to cross the epidermis into the underlying dermal layers, limiting the damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals and increases cell survival following UV exposure.
