Vitamin C does wonders for your immune system. It encourages the production of white blood cells, which help help your body fight off infections. It also helps these white blood cells function by protecting them from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable atoms that can cause aging and illness. When ingested, in say, an orange, vitamin C can travel to through the body to the skin where it can act as an antioxidant to heal and protect the skin's barrier. This potent little vitamin can do everything from brighten your skin to even your skin tone. But there are only so many oranges you can eat in a day so if you're looking to maximize you vitamin C intake, we have a few topical skincare products to recommend. Get your daily dose with these top 10 vitamin C products, according to our Supergreat community.
