The Sun Protection You Didn’t Know You Needed
Previously I wrote about how Vitamin C and sunscreen are the power couple to help protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. Then I gave you a list of products that contained Vitamin C to add into your morning routine.
What I didn’t give you was a list of antioxidants that will turn that Vitamin C / Sunscreen power couple into superheroes for your skin! Below are the top skin transforming ingredients that are fabulous for the summer months, and all thru the year. It’s the sun protection you didn’t know you needed!
Ferulic Acid is a potent antioxidant with photo protective properties that repairs and protects. Ferulic acid also slows down the aging process, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, plus increases the health and strength of your skin.
Phloretin is a potent antioxidant that protects the breakdown of collagen and elastin to keep skin youthful and plump. It inhibits an enzyme called MMP that breaks down the collagen and elastin. Phloretin is a botanical that can be found in the cell walls of fruits, vegetables and grains. In addition, Phloretin is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
- Tocotrienols \ Astaxanthin are powerful antioxidants that are forms of vitamin E. They help reduce signs of aging, prevent sun induced dark spots, protects skin from UVB damage and they are anti-inflammatory.
Can you imagine the power of this family of skin transforming ingredients when combined with Vitamin C and sunscreen? Just like combining Vitamin C with your sunscreen radically reduces free radical damage than just SPF alone, combining these antioxidants with your sun care routine makes them a powerhouse of protection!
The best part is that these ingredients are all in one magical potion: the Awakened Hydrating Serum! This is your secret weapon to rejuvenation and prevention! It is deeply hydrating, fights against dehydration and water loss and offers antioxidant protection against harmful UVB damage. Awakened Hydrating Serum is also acne safe 🙌 and works deep into the dermal layers of the skin to support collagen and elastin.
Add Awakened Hydrating Serum to your sunscreen and Vitamin C skin routine and amp up your sun protection!
