We love discovering serums that will solve our skin concerns for our face, but our body could use some extra love from serums too. If you’re new to the realm of body serums and lotions, let’s start with an essential duo you need for your routine — vitamin C and SPF protection. You can find these two in the new NIVEA Super C+ SPF 50 Vitamin Serum, but first, let’s dive into why your skin deserves these two ingredients.
Why you need both vitamin C and SPF in your bodycare routine
1. Protect your skin against sun damage and free radicals
When deciding on a body serum or lotion, look for one containing Vitamin C to boost your skin's protection. This ingredient offers antioxidant properties that shield your skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays and free radicals. This refers to any environmental exposures including pollution, sun rays, harsh lights, cigarette smoke, and other toxic chemicals that you may come into contact with as you go about your day. When you add SPF to the mix, it’s like you’re getting a double-defence system to help keep your skin healthy and strong.
2. Power up your glow
You might say that you’re already enjoying vitamin C-rich foods like strawberries and oranges. However, using a vitamin C and SPF duo can complement your diet and give you the boost you need on the path towards glowing and healthy skin.
Vitamin C has been well-loved and popular for being a multitasker in the skincare arena. It rejuvenates the skin and helps in lessening the look of redness. It also slows down the production of melanin (the pigment that gives our skin colour). This potent ingredient also works hand-in-hand with SPF to prevent your skin from developing dark spots and patches.
3. Pave the way for youthful-looking and bouncy skin
Aside from protecting your skin, a vitamin C and SPF combo can also pave the way for youthful-looking and bouncy skin. When we age, our body reduces its production of collagen which is vital for keeping our skin plump and supple. This leads to sagging and other visible signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, and spots. Vitamin C may help encourage the production of collagen. When paired with SPF (which helps protect against collagen damage), the two can work wonders in making your skin more firm and elastic.
We may not detect the harmful effects of the elements that can irritate our skin until they accumulate over time. So consider adding vitamin C and SPF daily to your bodycare routine, no matter your age or skin tone.
