You can say goodbye to the under-eye circle

Vitamin C serums are great at smoothing out fine lines, as they plump and hydrate the under-eye area. Even if vitamin C is much more effective at reducing overall redness, some people will agree that it can also help alleviate discoloration that’s directly associated with under-eye circles.

There’s a 2019 study that focused on three treatments for dark circles, that shows how vitamin C mesotherapy was followed by a great improvement in the pigmentation of under-eye circles. Even so, some participants reported a certain burning feeling.

If you want to get rid of under-eye bags, you might also use a cold compress and retinol. The skin under your eyes is extremely sensitive, so it’s important to stick to products that are made for treating that area.

It enhances collagen production

Collagen is a protein that our bodies produce naturally, but it depletes over time. Lower levels of collagen might eventually lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is famously known for boosting collagen production, through collagen synthesis.

Even more, vitamin C is absolutely essential for collagen synthesis, because the vitamin is a crucial cofactor for the two enzymes needed for collagen synthesis, which are prolyl hydroxylase (that stabilizes collagen molecules), and lysyl hydroxylase (which gives structural strength).
