Summer Besties: Why You Need To Pair Vitamin C With SPF

It is well known that it is essential to always use sunscreen. It is the secret to reducing burns, wrinkles, premature aging, sun spots, and collagen deterioration.

You only need to use two items to get summertime radiance: a good source of Vitamin C and a sunscreen. Vitamin C is one of the best antioxidants available, so using SPF with it can effectively doubles its skin-protective effects.

The Power of Vitamin C

One of the best innovations in the cosmetics industry for delaying the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots on the skin is a topical daily vitamin C serum.

When applied to your skin, Vitamin C can:

  • Improve your skin’s natural collagen production
  • Brighten your complexion
  • Even skin tone by erasing dark spots
  • Neutralize free radicals, reducing skin damage
  • Prevent premature aging
  • Visibly smoothing fine lines and wrinkles

The vibrant, juicy, and delectable summertime fruits and vegetables oranges, blueberries, blackberries, Kakadu plums, camu camus, kiwis, and pineapple are rich sources of this powerful vitamin.

Why SPF is Important

Sun exposure can cause free radical damage which are oxygen atoms that are randomly seek out other atoms to stabilize themselves. Your skin cells are a prime target for them, and they will grasp onto anything to start a chain reaction of damage that accelerates ageing.

You are probably already aware of the need of using sun protection every single day, especially if you spend a lot of time outside. It's recommended to apply many layers of your favourite sunscreen before going outside this summer for beach fun, backyard barbecues, and relaxing by swimming pools.

Apply SPF liberally from head to toe to obtain the most benefit from your sun protection, paying special attention to your décolleté, hands, ears, and feet. Additionally, you may get UV protection for your lips and scalp. And keep in mind that an SPF of 0 is useless for sun protection.

Vitamin C + Sunscreen = Max Sun Protection

It has been proven that utilizing vitamin C serum in addition to sunscreen is more efficient than using sunscreen alone at reducing free radical damage caused by exposure to the sun.

SPF only blocks 55% of the free radicals produced by UV exposure. To optimize sun protection, it is important to use sunscreens in combination with a product containing Vitamin C.

When SPF and Vitamin C are applied together, their benefits multiply and will be far more efficient at reducing dark spots and signs of aging from the sun.
