Anti-oxidant for better sun protection

Anti-oxidant is a substance that protects your cells against free radicals (molecules produced when your body breaks down food). Many experts suggest that anti-oxidants play a vital role in heart disease, cancer, and depression. They also play a role in skin care products. i.e. sunblock & sunscreen.

Anti-oxidants are also being used in personal care products like sunblock and sunscreens. They protect the outer layer of our skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggression like UV and pollution. Their role in sunblock and sunscreen is to prevent sunburn by neutralizing the free radical damage that sun exposure causes. 

UV exposure from the rays can trigger free radical damage that causes skin aging, in the form of wrinkles, dark spots, and other issues. These issues occur at a deeper level which takes time to show up on your skin. Sunblock forms a protective layer on the skin to prevent UV rays.

It takes 20 min for uncovered skin to turn red when exposed to harmful sun rays, using SPF-60 sunblock prevents redness 60 times longer. SPF 30 keeps out 97% and SPF 50 keeps out 98% of all coming UVB rays. Whereas SPF 60 filters out approximately 98% of UVB rays. This seems a negligible difference but if you have light-sensitive skin this extra percentage makes a difference.

Vitamin E also works well against UVB shaft protection (so it’s good to include in an SPF)

Vitamin C: The combination of vitamin C and broad-spectrum sunscreens, which protect well against UVA rays, is more effective at neutralizing free radical damage from sun exposure than sunscreen alone.

According to this 2013 study: “Sunscreens only block 55 percent of the free radicals generated by UV exposure. To optimize UV protection, using sunscreen in combination with a topical antioxidant is important.
