As we step outside, our skin is very much exposed to the sun. The rays emitted by the sun can help as well as harm our skin. These rays are ultraviolet (UV) rays (UVA, UVB, and UVC) & IR ( Infrared Rays )
Although the sun is the best source of Vitamin D which helps in absorption of calcium, its extended exposure can also hit our skin with its potentially harmful UV rays, which produces free radicals.
The risk of UV effects on skin highly depends on the length and depth of its exposure. One could be at higher risk if they have fair skin or moles.
UV rays from the sun can result in sunburn, premature aging, wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots, reduced skin elasticity, the degradation of skin texture, and most importantly it may cause skin cancer.
Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, is protective against skin damage and is available in forms like tablets & vitamin C serum. Vitamin C Serum acts as Anti-photoaging, Radical scavenging & Reversing auto-oxidation thus works to protect the skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays, sun damage and brightens uneven skin tone & improves overall skin texture. It is beneficial in multiple ways: Antioxidant Properties: Helps in protection from UV damage Boosts Collagen Production: Helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles Skin Lightening: Helps to reduce Skin Pigmentation Repairs Skin Damage: Ceramides improve skin barrier function Provides Moisturization: Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume by holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water, binding water to skin for ultimate hydration.
