How best to use sunscreen.
Skinful Saturday & Sunscreen
Let’s talk about Sunscreen and combating sun damage for a moment. Using a Vitamin C serum along with your sunscreen can boost the effectiveness of your sunscreen. It helps to prevent melanin from forming in your skin that can go on to create sun damage or pigmentation. Vitamin C should be applied under sunscreen as it acts as a scavenger to the sun’s rays which bring free radicals. Furthermore, the sun hunts for Vitamin C and will soak up a topical version before going for the internal version. Lastly, it is a common mistake to assume that once you applied the products you are good for the day. That simply isn’t true. Sunscreen lasts 75 minutes which means if you have ongoing sun exposure, it’s best to reapply.
In this 2017 video, founder and formulator of the DMK product line Danne Montague-King discusses the benefits of Beta Gel and sun exposure. Beta gel has been coined “liquid gold” and also has vitamin c in the formulation. It also acts as a wound healer if used early enough in the healing process. This is a core product in the home care regimen for skin revision.
