There are several health product sites making claims about Vitamin C and Indian Gooseberry. They say it helps with skin problems.
Note that "Amla" is one of the names for Indian Gooseberry.
Reduce the appearance of brown spots and other types of sun damage Helps boost healthy collagen production (hello, firmer skin!) Reduce inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage Fade post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response
You could keep your look youthful for long by drinking amla juice. Again the hero here is vitamin C which is found in abundance in amla juice. Regular intake of amla juice delays the effects of premature ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and dark spots.
A beauty website has claimed that on its application to skin it has the following benefits:
Amla juice can also help treat pigmentation like all other fruits rich in Vitamin C. Apply some amla juice on your face as a face pack and leave it to dry. Wash off with cold water. This helps you get rid of tanning and blemishes in your skin.
Using amla juice as a face pack or drinking it regularly helps in toning your skin and keeping it firm due to its anti-aging properties.
So, is it true that Indian Gooseberry, applied to my face in liquid or powder form, and/or when eaten can have the positive effects claimed?
