Although we should use sunscreen all year round, as it’s the best skincare product to prevent aging due to sun exposure, we only remember it when the temperatures rise or at the beach. If that's the case, you’re probably wasting your time using sunscreen!
As much as the sun gives us a great tan, it damages the skin, leaving it completely dry and increases your skin's pigmentation and dark spots. Dehydration is the most obvious side effect, but if you take a deeper look, you won't believe your eyes when you discover how sun exposure can accelerate aging, sunburn, and increase your risk of skin cancer.
Sunscreen after Vitamin C Serum
If your goal is to have beautiful skin all year round, avoiding all those side effects of the sun, then what matters most is complementing your sunscreen with Vitamin C serum to enhance your sun protection routine by 8 times photo protection.
What is Vitamin C Serum and Why Should it Be Used for Skin Care?
Vitamin C Serum is an essential step in your skincare routine. The antioxidants in Vitamin C Serum are designed for optimal absorption into the skin and enhance its ability to help prevent free radical damage from weathering that causes signs of aging.
Why Using Sunscreen After Vitamin C Serum Important?
Vitamin C also known as ascorbic acid is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, therefore preventing and treating fine and superficial wrinkles in the skin.
But vitamin C is not only known for being an anti-wrinkle. It also has a depigmenting effect, it inhibits tyrosinase, an enzyme necessary for the synthesis of melanin, unifying the tone and restoring luminosity to the skin. Something ideal for those who are especially concerned about the proliferation of facial spots from exposure to UV rays. So, if after using vitamin C serum, we apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF index, we'll be acting smart to minimize the impact of the harmful effects of sun rays. Therefore, vitamin C serum is a great ally of sunscreen creams in anti-aging.
How Do I Know If My Sunscreen Is Providing Adequate Protection?
You must look for a sunscreen with a high SPF rating, such as SPF 50, which is considered very high and provides excellent protection against harmful UV rays. Additionally, look for the ingredients in sunscreen that provide broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Be sure to apply enough sunscreen to cover all exposed areas of your skin, and reapply regularly to ensure maximum protection
Why Is It Important to Use Sunscreen with High Protection?
Using sunscreen with high protection is essential for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. While some cheaper brands may claim to provide high protection, they may not use high-quality ingredients or may not use enough of the UV filters needed to provide adequate protection. It's important to invest in high-quality sunscreen to ensure that you are getting the best possible protection for your skin.
