Does Vitamin C help with sun protection?
Vitamin C is not a sunscreen, I repeat not a sunscreen.
BUT this wonder ingredient, found in our best selling Vitamin C Booster, DOES play a protective role against the damage caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays and has a preventative role in environmental aging.
There are, broadly speaking, two main processes by which aging of the skin occurs.
Intrinsic, or genetically determined factors which occur with the passage of time, and extrinsic or environmental factors including the sun, air pollution, tobacco smoke and nutrition which are some examples.
Use of Vitamin C can help combat visible signs of aging including lines and wrinkles and also brightens the skin's complexion. Antioxidants work more as preventatives than correctives but in addition to its protection against free radicals it also reduces pigmentation and stimulates collagen production.
