Vitamin C: Supersize your sun protection

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that has the power to protect against and reverse some of the effects of sun damage. Not only does it boost your natural sun protection, but it helps with wrinkles and discoloration.

We love products that pair it with antioxidants, like Vitamin E, Vitamin B, AHA or BHA, to boost protection, hydration, and collagen, to smooth skin or prevent break outs.


A serum is basically a fruit salad for your face -

high concentration of amazing antioxidants to give you benefits you can see and prevent further sun damage.
