Studies have shown that using a broad-spectrum sunscreen together with a Vitamin C serum significantly enhances the effectiveness of each. They’re a real power duo when it comes to protection against sun damage, neutralizing free radicals, and combating the effects of photoaging.


What Does Vitamin C Do For The Skin?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage and is a major player in preventative aging. It stimulates and supports the body’s natural collagen synthesis, reducing signs of premature aging such as wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. It’s one of the most effective lines of defense against free radicals from UV rays, pollution, and blue light from electronics. Additionally, Vitamin C has been shown to reduce dark spots, boost brightness, plump, and revitalize dull skin. 


Why SPF Protection Is Essential

The effects of UV damage cannot be overstated. UVB rays from sunlight can cause burning and worse, while UVA rays are present even in cloudy or rainy weather. Both contribute to the effects of photoaging, such as uneven skin tone, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of firmness and elasticity. It is important to use sunscreen daily, even in the winter as UVA rays are out at the same intensity every day. 

An astounding 80% of skin aging is because of sun exposure. Put that together with the damage we know UV rays cause, and enough said, right? Using a mineral sunscreen every single day is the best way to prevent UVA and UVB damage. 


What Are The Benefits of Using Vitamin C and Sunscreen Together?

Studies have shown that using an antioxidant vitamin C serum before sunscreen amplifies your broad-spectrum SPF protection. Together they protect against damage from the sun and pollutants by neutralizing free radicals before exposure. When used together, they become the ultimate preventative measure when it comes to skin aging. 

Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays and a Vitamin C serum gives you the best of both worlds: enhanced SPF protection and the powerful antioxidant of Vitamin C. That means less photoaging, sun damage, and free radical damage. Vitamin C Serum also helps to revitalize your skin, even skin tone, and brighten your complexion.
