๐ŸŒž Of course, sunscreen is important year-round, and especially in the summer. But, the most powerful preparation against harmful UV rays is to pair your sunscreen with a skincare antioxidant

๐ŸŒž One of the best options for an antioxidant is an active vitamin C skincare product

๐ŸŒž While sunscreen PROTECTS, antioxidants help NEUTRALIZE UV damage done to your skin, which helps to minimizes signs of aging and sun-related skin changes (e.g. brown spots, wrinkles, etc).

โœจ SkinCeuticals has several clinically-supported specialized vitamin C serums to choose from!

๐ŸŒž This often worsens in the summer with UV exposure

๐ŸŒž 2 proven ingredients to look for: tranexamic acid and kojic acid

โœจ The SkinCeuticals Discolouration Defense Serum contains both of these ingredients and is a Dermatologist favourite!

๐ŸŒž By following these guidelines, you will minimize your risk for increased skin sensitivity to UV rays in the summer:

๐ŸŒž 1. Use at night-time only

๐ŸŒž 2. Stop one week before a sunny vacation

โœจ If you are just starting a retinol, consider starting one at the lowest concentration, and specifically formulated to minimize irritation. this Retinol 0.3 is one great option to consider
