If you want to make your skin healthy and beautiful, then definitely take a healthy diet. Vitamin C is as important for boosting immunity as it is for making hair and skin healthy. People who have less vitamin C in their body may have eye, hair and skin-related problems. Vitamin C deficiency weakens the immune system and it also affects teeth and nails. At the same time, symptoms of vitamin C deficiency start appearing on the skin. If ignored for a long time, it can cause trouble. Know what symptoms become visible on the skin due to vitamin C deficiency.

Why is Vitamin C important?

Vitamin C is water-soluble. That is why you need vitamin C in your daily diet. Vitamin C deficiency can be met through food and drink. To meet the deficiency of vitamin C, include orange, lemon, mango, citrus fruits, and green vegetables in the diet. Apart from this, vitamin C is also found in some spices and herbs. Sometimes, due to genetic disorders and metabolic disorders, there is a deficiency of vitamin C in the body. If you do a lot of workouts or are a patient with diabetes or high blood pressure, then there may be a deficiency of vitamin C in the body. 

Symptoms of Vitamin C Deficiency on the Skin

Dry lifeless skin- Sometimes the skin becomes very dry and lifeless. Excessive dryness of the upper layer of the skin can be a sign of vitamin C deficiency. However, sometimes skin starts becoming dry due to changes in weather and lack of water. If this happens to you too, then definitely consult a doctor.

Delay in healing- When there is a deficiency of vitamin C in the body, the wounds take a long time to heal. Some people are unable to understand the reason for this.

Wrinkles- If the skin becomes too dry, then wrinkles start appearing on the face quickly. The dryness of the skin starts increasing and aging starts appearing on the face. If this is happening to you, then the reason for this can also be a deficiency of vitamin C. Due to a deficiency of vitamin C, the skin around the eyes starts shrinking.
