Vitamin C and vitamin E both are known to be good for your skin. But, did you know that when paired together, they are up to 50 times more effective than either one alone?
This is why a combination of vitamins C and E should be a regular part of your beauty regimen. When added to your daily routine, they provide a range of benefits--from evening out your skin tone, shielding skin from the visible impacts of pollution, significantly improving hydration and keeping your skin looking younger, longer!
What Does Vitamin C Do for Your Skin?
Vitamin C has a unique status—it’s an antioxidant that is vital for collagen production and is considered an anti-aging superstar by skin care experts around the world.
Healthy skin has very high concentrations of vitamin C. However, excessive exposure to UV rays or pollution, as well as the natural aging process, reduce vitamin C levels in both the dermis and epidermis. This is one of the reasons our skin starts to age and show lines and wrinkles. As vitamin C levels decrease, collagen repair is slowed, and lines and wrinkles appear.
Vitamin C protects the skin against UV damage by clearing out free radicals and reducing the inflammation response. This increases the lifespan of skin cells and reduces sunburn damage. So, while vitamin C can't protect skin like an SPF can, it can minimize the damage you can't see.
What Does Vitamin E Do for Your Skin?
Like vitamin C, vitamin E offers antioxidant (fat soluble) benefits as well. It helps neutralize harmful free radicals and, due to its antioxidant benefits, can discourage sebum (oil) oxidation to prevent blackheads.
With all of the environmental stresses our skin faces, from UV to pollution, the protection vitamin E provides our skin is vital. As an anti-inflammatory agent, vitamin E also calms and hydrates the skin, helping reduce wrinkles and keeping it youthful.
Since free radicals can also slow healing and promote scarring, vitamin E will help heal the skin and improve overall appearance, too.
C + E = 50 Times MORE Effective
While vitamins C and E are great alone, the two together are a power couple, increasing the effectiveness of vitamin E by up to 50 times.
This powerhouse provides particularly potent protection against UV damage than either vitamin does alone. It seems that the interaction between the two vitamins is what produces protection against cell damage.
According to Durham, North Carolina-based Duke University Medical Center, when vitamin C is combined with vitamin E and used under a sunscreen, it can provide four times the protection than sunscreen alone. Which means you are taking the steps you need to protect your skin against environmental damage throughout the day.
