Sunscreen is your #1 anti-aging product. It helps prevent photoaging and reduces your risk for skin cancer. If you do not know this already – you should: applying sunscreen every day, whether rain or shine, is your best defense against aging and the effects of the harsh rays of the sun.
But did you know that to get the most out of your sunscreen, you should pair it with Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is an ideal ingredient to use in the summertime because that’s when our skin is exposed to the most UV light—and therefore the most free radicals.
Free radicals are toxic, unstable molecules that contribute to aging by depleting the natural antioxidants in our skin and causing cellular and DNA damage.
What vitamin C does, as an antioxidant, is:
- Neutralize the oxidative stress caused by these free radicals
- Protect against UV-induced skin damage
- Aid in skin repair
