I was recently recommended Dr. Andrew Puharich's "Lightening Skin with Vitamin C" by a customer. I did some research on Dr. Andrew's website and found that his books have been translated into more than 22 different languages. I have read all of them. Dr. Puharich does not just use Vitamin C to lighten your skin. He also uses Vitamin E, the anti-inflammatory and anti-aging herb, to give your skin a new look. He also suggests taking a product called "Coconut Oil" in addition to your Vitamin C to get rid of bad and dark spots on your face. In his book "The Best of All Possible Scents", he even goes as far as to say that it is better to use a new oil and a new scent than to use the same old stuff all the time! But there's a problem with this. You can't use Vitamin C on your face for the same effect as if you used the oil or the fragrance. There's some research that supports this, but there's no way to test this, since you can't even see what the oil is, so it's hard to get reliable results. Some people might use a Vitamin C cream in combination with a scent, but in most cases that's not worth using.
