Summer is the season to kick back, relax and enjoy being outside. And with more exposure to the elements, it’s important to take care of your skin. Here are a few nutrients and product recommendations to consider adding to your summer skincare routine.
Did you know that vitamin C plays an important role in protecting your skin? Its antioxidant properties can neutralize free radicals from ultraviolet (UV) rays in the skin. It is also necessary for collagen production and maintenance. As we age, vitamin C levels naturally decline. One product that can help keep your skin healthy and strong is MyChelle’s Perfect C Pro Serum 25%, concentrated with Vitamin C. Use one pump a day on clean, damp skin, followed by a moisturizer and sunscreen. Research shows that topical application of vitamin C may result in greater skin protection than oral supplementation.
