You can, but why? What are you hoping to accomplish? I know that there are many claims for topical formulations containing antioxidants such as vitamin C that will protect against aging. However, the truth is that many of these formulations contain very low concentrations of antioxidants that are not well absorbed by the skin. So do it if you wish, but don't expect dramatic results.

It will not do you any good other than lightening your wallet. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
