Vitamin C + Sunscreen

Amplify your protection from the effects of sun exposure by adding vitamin C to your daily sunscreen routine because when sunscreen and vitamin C are applied together, their benefits multiply.

I spoke to my mother on the phone and she asked me how I apply sunscreen. So let me tell you; after washing my face in the morning (no matter if it is winter or summer) I apply a Vitamin C serum followed by sunscreen SPF 30. After the cream has dried a bit, I add a face-cream, daily moisturiser and eventually end it with makeup (with even more spf). I’m deadly scared of the sun!

Combining Vitamin C serum and broad-spectrum sunscreens that protect well against UVA rays has been shown to be more effective at neutralising free radical damage from sun exposure than just using sunscreen alone

Wearing sunscreen is the key to preventing skin cancer, painful burns, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, and collagen depletion. When you pair your sunscreen with Vitamin C, one of the best antioxidants in the game, you essentially double-down on all those skin protecting benefits.

The importance of wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen every single day—rain or shine, indoors or outdoors—can’t be understated.

I usually recommend applying Vitamin C serum in the morning under moisturiser and sunscreen, as it can then work to combat exposure to free radicals and ultraviolet light throughout the day. In other words, when sunscreen and Vitamin C are applied together, their benefits multiply.
