SUNSCREEN PLUS VITAMIN C

from Baylor College of Medicine

Sunscreen can certainly protect our skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, but in saying that, Kim Chang at Baylor College of Medicine suggests adding vitamin C to your skin care can protect you even better. Pollutants can attack and contribute to skin damage, and since vitamin C is an antioxidant it helps fight the oxidative stress. She recommends vitamin C products that do not contain a lot of additives and with a concentration between ten and twenty percent. Chang suggests a pH level of three and one-half since the product must be at an acidic level effectively absorbed by the skin. She cautions that although rare, some people’s skin may not tolerate the purest form of vitamin C. Check with your health care professional or dermatologist first.
