Pairing Vitamin C & Sunscreen: Tip of the Day 4-26-22
According to dermatologists, your Vitamin C and sunscreen should totally be BFF’s.
Dermatologist Dr. Steven Mandrea tells RealSimple, “Combining vitamin C serum and broad-spectrum sunscreens that protect well against UVA rays has been shown to be more effective at neutralizing free radical damage from sun exposure than just using sunscreen alone.”
Free radicals are oxygen atoms that seek out any other atom to stabilize themselves. They can latch onto your skin cells and cause damage that leads to premature aging. Antioxidants help to combat that damage directly. Dermatologists say, when sunscreen and vitamin C are applied together, their benefits multiply. 🤍
Dr. Mandrea recommends applying vitamin C serum in the morning, then moisturizer, then sunscreen. Do this every day, rain or shine. ☀️
