The sun is a powerful force providing light, warmth, and essential vitamins, but overexposure can cause a lot of damage to our skin. From painful sunburns to unsightly hyperpigmentation, sun damage is a major concern.
With the right sun care products and vitamin C supplements, you can give your skin the protection and repair it needs to stay healthy and positively glowing.
Sun Care Products and Vitamin C: A Winning Combination
While sunscreen should always be the first line of defence, pairing its use with Vitamin C supplements can offer even greater benefits against the harmful effects of the sun. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your cells against free radicals. In a topical form, it can help to prevent sun damage. Skincare products with vitamin C may improve the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and acne, plus even out the skin tone.
Here are some of our most popular vitamin C supplements for skin care and health:
Hakubi White C Tablets
These tablets are packed with vitamin C and L-cysteine, which work together to brighten and even out your skin tone. Take Hakubi White C Tablets daily to promote active skin regeneration and suppress the production of melanin, for flawless-looking skin.
Hakubi White C Drink
Besides vitamin C and L-cysteine, this drink is packed with other beneficial ingredients like hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hakubi White C Drink gives your skin a boost of hydration while helping to brighten the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation.
Hakubi White C Gel
Our Hakubi White C Gel is specially formulated with vitamin C and other powerful ingredients to effectively spot-treat skin problems such as acne. Ideal for soothing sunburns, this lightweight and non-greasy gel helps to prevent the dark spots and freckles caused by sunburns.
Hakubi Collagen Tablets
For that supple and bouncy skin texture, try our Hakubi Collagen Tablets which are made with vitamins B and C, royal jelly, and hyaluronic acid. All of these work together to boost collagen production in your body, maintain your skin’s moisture levels, and protect your skin from sun damage.
Sunburn Treatment: How to Soothe Your Skin
Despite efforts to protect our face and body, sunburns can still happen, especially given the high UV index in Singapore. If you find yourself with a painful sunburn, try these self-care tips for sunburn relief:
- Apply a cooling compress like a dampened towel.
- Take frequent cool baths or showers to help calm the skin.
- Use a moisturiser such as Satopharm’s Hakubi C Gel to soothe sunburned areas that feel uncomfortably tight or itchy.
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, as sunburns draw water away from the rest of the body.
- Protect yourself from further sun exposure while your sunburned skin heals.
- Consider taking a pain reliever like ibuprofen to help ease the pain and reduce inflammation.
With a little care, your sunburn will heal in no time. However, prevention is better than cure when it comes to sun damage and your skin. Vitamin C supplements and the right sun care products can help to keep your skin radiant and glowing all year long. Make our Hakubi range of skincare supplements a part of your daily skincare routine for a healthier, more youthful-looking appearance.
