Innovative Immunity BoostersMela Bright 2 1 6452f6b4434d3

Winter has officially arrived and with it cold and flu season, causing people to flock to the pharmacy for their annual vaccines and immune-boosting supplements to stave off the viruses being passed around. Our skin, like our immune system, also needs a boost to stay healthy this time of year and fight off the damaging effects of getting sick, moisture-sapping cold temperatures and other winter stressors. Vitamin C is the go-to immunity booster for our bodies, and the same holds true for protecting and boosting skin’s natural defenses. Vitamin C helps neutralize and protect against free radicals and environmental stressors, support the skin microbiome to enhance its natural defenses and optimize overall skin health. While orange juice gives our bodies a boost of vitamin C, here are products to add a bit of vitamin C to your patients’ skin care regimen to enhance skin defenses, radiance and brightness in the midst of winter.
