The 10 Amazing Benefits of Vitamin C for Skin and Hair Health

You may already know about all the amazing things vitamin C can do for your system. It helps to promote healthy bones and teeth, it boosts overall immunity, and it has even been shown to help lower blood pressure. But did you know how many amazing things it can do for the way you look?

Here are 10 ways that vitamin C helps benefit your skin and hair health.

Collagen Boost

Collagen is the main structural protein found in your skin and connective tissue. In fact, 70% of all the protein found in your skin is collagen. It’s responsible for the elasticity of your skin, and keeps everything looking young and fresh.

How do we get collagen? By taking in Vitamin C. Your body needs vitamin C to produce collagen, and you need collagen for healthy skin.

Increased Sun Protection

Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which your body uses to fight off harmful free radicals. Many of these are produced when ultraviolet radiation from the sun comes into contact with your body, and a lack of vitamin C can leave you with a reduced ability to fight them off naturally.

Now, don’t go skipping your sunscreen, but studies do show that people who get enough vitamin C have less overall sun damage to their skin.


Improved Texture

As well as being integral to skin structure, collagen is also important for the structure of your blood vessels – and it all comes down to vitamin C. Efficient blood flow to your skin’s surface can prevent a rough texture and appearance. In fact, creams containing vitamin C are marketed specifically to help smooth out rough skin.

Less Discoloration

Vitamin C can help prevent the DNA in your skin from reacting with sunlight and causing discoloration or even precancerous cells.

Faster Wound Healing

Your body uses vitamin C to help heal injuries to your skin. Collagen helps not only to close wounds, but also to create scar tissue that helps protect the site. Slow wound healing can be a sign of vitamin C deficiency.

Faster Hair Growth

Free radicals can damage your hair making it brittle and more prone to split ends. As mentioned above, the antioxidant properties of vitamin C help to reduce free radicals, and will protect your hair as well as your skin. Your hair will be stronger and grow quicker.


Fewer Grays

Vitamin C has been shown to help hair retain its natural color for longer, meaning fewer grays.

Prevents Hair Loss

An underperforming adrenal gland can lead to hair loss, and one of the main ways to help fight adrenal gland fatigue is by supplementing with vitamin C. This can help reverse the hormonal processes that cause hair loss.

Protects Against Dandruff

You may have germs living on your scalp that encourage the skin problems that lead to dandruff. Vitamin C helps fight these germs off.

Thicker, Healthier Hair

Taken altogether, the increased blood flow, the decrease in bacteria, and the antioxidants all work in combination to help you grow thicker, healthier hair.


So be sure to eat your citrus and your dark greens. The best way to get vitamin C is through a healthy diet!

The 1st thing that got me interested in Capsiplex was the fact that it was all natural and that there was no side effect. It actually works. After trying for 3 weeks and losing 3 pounds I have just ordered 3 more bottles! Hope that the weight loss continues.

I would most definitely recommend this to anyone trying to lose weight! Since I started using this supplement I’ve been losing about 3 lbs per week average. I’m however going to the gym to speed up the process but all in all ….I’m happy.

I’ll have tons of energy, go for miles of walks and actually went up to sprinting. After weeks I got slimmer and trimmer. (I am now maintaining my weight). I am pleased to say it has no side effect whatsoever, best of all IT’S ONCE A DAY. That fits in well with my 12hr shift.
