Another ingredient that you should be on the lookout for when shopping for skin care products would be Vitamin C. You can beat the harsh rays of the sun with this powerful ingredient because it has antioxidants that help in protecting the skin from ultraviolet (UV) rays. Vitamin C also aids in collagen production, a process that slows down when we start to age.
