Add vitamin C to your daily routine. Preferably during the day for added antioxidant protection. EverActive C&E? + Peptide contains L-ascorbic acid, a powerful antioxidant that protects from free radical damage caused by the sun and pollution. Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also brightens and evens out skin tone.
Limit screen time. Have you ever heard of HEV light? (high energy visible light, also called blue light) HEV light is all around us and some suggest it can cause pigmentation. It's everywhere from our TV screens, computer and tablet screens, to cell phone screens. Try putting your phone away for 30 minutes each day, to lessen the effects or try apps like Redshift which adjusts the colour temperature of your screen according to your surroundings.
Sleep more. We know this sounds so simple but beauty rest is a tried and true hack. Depriving yourself of sleep means your body is creating more of the stress hormone cortisol. Catching those few extra Zzz's will allow skin the time it needs to regenerate, ensuring skin conditions don't worsen. To get a restful sleep try not to eat large meals before bed and keep screens off at least 30 minutes before bed.
Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen. It's the BEST thing you can do for your skin and frankly, the easiest. Apply a mineral based sunscreen daily not only to protect the skin from harmful UV rays all year round, but to get these benefits as well. Evens out skin tone, helps prevent future discolouration from forming and slows down wrinkles from forming with daily use. Need we say more?
