Vitamin C and Carotenoids
Carotenoids are a type of color pigment that gives fruits and vegetables a yellow-orange color. Carotenoids are absorbed via the intestine from food and can then be transformed in the body into vitamin A, also known as Retinol, which has scientific and positive properties when it comes to, for example, acne, psoriasis, sun damage or wrinkles. Yellow berries are also full of vitamin C, an antioxidant that protects the cells against oxidative stress in the skin, which leads to premature aging of the skin. Vitamin C is good for the immune system and necessary to maintain your energy level. In addition, vitamin C contributes to the body's absorption of iron, which is important for the production of collagen in the skin cells, to support the skin's structure and counteract signs of aging. Oxidative stress leads to dull and tired skin and vitamin C gives the skin the boost it needs to look younger and fresher.
