Ahh, summer, with the nice weather it is the perfect time to talk about safe sun practices, such as seeking shade, covering up, wear a broad rim hat and sunglasses and apply SPF every day. Along with Safe sun habits, another way to best prepare your skin for the summer and to minimize damage caused by UVA and UVB exposure includes good skincare habits along with a diet that is rich in naturally occurring antioxidants for a more compressive approach to skin aging. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables that are packed with the nutrients we need to limit and reduce the oxidative stress that occurs daily.
Other factors to consider are ensuring your skin is healthy and to avoid or limit the use of harsh exfoliants that can thin, irritate and sensitize the skin. Opting for enzymatic exfoliants and restorative facials will remove only the superficial dead skin cells while maintaining the skin’s integrity, the stratum conium plays a protective role and when compromised it can lead to increased sun damage and inflammation.
A simple way to increase your daily protection from premature aging caused by UVA and UVB rays and to boost the effectiveness and the benefits of your SPF 30 Mineral is simply by layering antioxidant-rich serum under your SPF daily. It incorporates an additional veil of protection to your skin that is ultra lightweight and perfect for the summer months ahead.
