Posted on: 

At Aspire Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, we recognize the importance of vitamins in your skin-care products and in your diet. So we’re going to spend a little time talking about those with the greatest impact on your skin’s appearance.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. It’s challenging to get effective levels of vitamin C in the skin, because it’s extremely unstable and difficult to formulate.
