Vitamin C and E both help in the reduction/lightening of acne scars, dark spots and other blemishes. They also cleanse the skin off impurities; while Vitamin C removes the dead cells, as well as unclogs and shrinks the pores also. However, their main benefit is due to their anti-oxidant nature. Both vitamins reduce the appearance of wrinkles; keep the skin from sagging and further wrinkling; and even maintain its elasticity. This they do by promoting healing of tissues, by stimulating regeneration of new cells, for one. Secondly, they minimize the sun-caused damage; and protect from further such damage as well. Thirdly, they help in the production of a necessary skin protein, or collagen. And lastly, they neutralize free radicals in our body; which are harmful and cause the skin to age.
