Keep reading to know about its benefits.
Using vitamin C at day time prevents our skin from UV exposure, says Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. UV exposure resulted in free-radical which play an important role in the ageing process. So, vitamin C protects our skin against ageing signs.
Advance studies show that sun damage lasts for several hours. So, applying Vitamin C at night time helps to fight post sunburn, say Joshua.
Applying Vitamin C at night time helps to fight sun burn the next day. Our body stores vitamin C when we use it. Applying vitamin C at night time can guarantee your skin that you have enough Vitamin C to go outside in the morning.
When not to use it?
Make sure to avoid Vitamin C when you are using salicylic acid, glycolic acid or retinol as it can cause burning and itching.
