In brief: Vitamin c and skin

Vitamin c is good for skin and help improve its color and texture.
Some patients with vitamin c deficiency develop skin rashes, itching, mouth, teeth, gum problems as it is a vital part of connective tissues and replacement can help. Similarly it helps improve anemia and improve oxygenation to skin and other vital organs. Can it help with hyper pigmentation and melasma, yes so go for it!
