ARE YOU CONCERNED WITH VITAMIN C AND RETINOL CAUSING SUN SENSITIVITY?

April 09, 2020

Are you using Vitamin C and retinol products in your skincare regimen and only using them at night? 

We have a solution for you - you absolutely CAN use Vitamin C and retinol (the natural alternative to retinol) in the daytime. 

Vitamin C
Sun sensitivity from vitamin C can only occur if the Vitamin C has oxidized in the bottle or it has oxidized on the surface of your skin. ⁣

Vitamin C comes in many forms so if it is a stable form of Vitamin C then it is less prone to oxidisation and causing sun sensitivity.

One stable form is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – sorry for that mouthful of scientific letter but you can call it THD Ascorbate too. 

In fact, Vitamin C is best paired with sunscreen to give your skin a second layer of defence against the Sun’s UV damage – more effective than just using sunscreen alone. ⁣

Apply in the morning under moisturiser and sunscreen. ⁣

Retinol
Retinol is preferred to be used at night because it can make skin more sensitive to sunlight however it actually can be used during the daytime if you do not experience any irritations.

If you are looking for a retinol to be used during the daytime, check out its clinically proven natural alternative - Bakuchiol. 

As bakuchiol is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and clinically proven to behave like retinol, you can use it in the daytime...without irritation.. WINNER!


Zen Botanics Age Defy Facial Oil contains both these powerhouse ingredients and is absolutely safe for use during the daytime and during pregnancy. DOUBLE WINNER!
