The aging process can be delayed by antioxidant supplement such as ascorbic acid. It is useful for reducing oxidative stress, inflammation, and cellular aging so that older people will be fitter and happier. The methodological approach used in this study is Literature Review (LR). This literature review will investigate the effect of ascorbic acid on inflammaging. Google Scholar, Researchgate, and Mendeley were used as the search engine. The keywords were ascorbic acid & skin collagen. The effect of ascorbic acid on geriatric beta-endorphin were analyzed from 14 articles. Body homeostasis, organ systems, and other changes will reduce the functional capacity in the skin collagen. To delay the   physiological process of aging, ascorbic acid potential to improve the skin collagen. The skin collagen can be improved by the effect of ascorbic acid for a better quality of aging process
