🌞 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
🌞 One of the best options for an antioxidant is an active vitamin C skincare product
🌞 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).
✨ SkinCeuticals has several clinically-supported specialized vitamin C serums to choose from!

🌞 By following these guidelines, you will minimize your risk for increased skin sensitivity to UV rays in the summer:
🌞 1. Use at night-time only
🌞 2. Stop one week before a sunny vacation
