I think Vitamin C and other supplements improve what you look like inside and out; however, we're always looking for the "magic bullet" and there is no such thing! If you live and eat simply (non-processed food) and exercise daily, your body will age more gracefully and stay healthy. So stop looking for shortcuts that will inevitably waste your money and time that could have been spent on common-sense.
