It’s no secret you need to be adamant about sunscreen usage when spending more than a few minutes outside. But did you know that Sunscreens actually only block 55% of the active oxygen produced by UV exposed skin?
In order to better optimize UV protection and slow sun-induced aging, it is important to apply antioxidants like Vitamin C to the skin daily!
Experiments have shown that when Vitamin C is applied to the skin:
- Erythema or the superficial reddening of skin by UV rays was reduced by 52%.
- Sunburn cell formation was reduced by 40-60%.
Vitabrid C is changing the way Vitamin C is applied to the skin this summer with their FACE Brightening Powder. Simply mix the Face Powder with your skin care product of choice (toner, serum, or sunscreen) for enhanced antioxidant properties. This combination will protect against skin damage caused by free radicals from UV exposure. Additionally, the zinc oxide mineral layers in the powder help block UV rays from reaching the skin.
