Scientists have uncovered a new role played by vitamin C in protecting the skin, which could lead to better skin regeneration.
A form of vitamin C helped to promote wound healing and also helped protect the skin cells from DNA damage.
Even though vitamin C was discovered over 70 years ago, its properties are still under much debate in the scientific community. However, antioxidants such as vitamin C are known to counter the damaging effects of free radicals.
This new evidence suggest that, in addition to ‘mopping up’ free radicals, vitamin C can help remove the DNA damage they form if they get past a cell’s defenses.These findings are believed to be of great relevance to the cosmetics industry.
