Celebrities can be coy about the exact routine they follow when it comes to skin care, but in recent months we've seen everything from Jennifer Aniston's lavish skin care budget to the revelation that Leonardo DiCaprio now owns a shower that dispenses Vitamin C infused water.

At the recent Supermodel Cycle for Pelotonia, Alessandra Ambrosio, the 32-year-old Victoria's Secret Model shed light on numerous topics, including her preferred skin care products.

After some casual banter about "who had the best hair in the World Cup," (Ambrosio named Brazilian players Neymar and David Luiz) Ambrosio told the crowd of her use of moisturizers and serums, specifically stating that she uses serums with Vitamin C.

The Brazilian-born model, also known for her work with Armani Exchange, Christian Dior, and Ralph Lauren, earned $6.6 million in 2012, putting her in sixth place on the Forbes top earning model list.

Why do Celebrities Turn to Vitamin C Serums?

1. Vitamin C Stimulates Collagen Production

As collagen production halts, wear and tear will show on the skin. Keeping collagen production flowing is the key to keeping a youthful, radiant skin complexion.

2. Vitamin C Targets Age Spots

Skin products with Vitamin C can diminish the appearance of age spots.

3. Best value for daily use

Studies revealed that using a topical vitamin C product could be up to 20 times more beneficial when compared to oral consumption.

The acclaimed Dr. Oz has shared his positive thoughts on Vitamin C skin care products, saying that it was "Secret #1" in taking 10 years off your age.
