PRE & POST SUN EXPOSURE
Besides SPF, how can you support your skin pre & post sun exposure? Read on for the best tips in natural skincare to optimize your routine.
HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR SKIN PRE-SUN
Sunblock prevents UV rays from penetrating the skin, but some do still get through. For what doesn't get blocked, antioxidants act like a 2nd line of defense. Antioxidants help neutralize free radical damage that not only leads to premature aging, but also skin cancer. Before going out into the sun, applying antioxidants topically will act like a second line of defense to your SPF.
HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR SKIN POST-SUN
Did you know that 50% of sun damage happens AFTER you leave the sun (and go in the shade or indoors)? The best natural skincare routine post-sun exposure will include fresh antioxidants to help fight the damage being done post-exposure. In addition to antioxidants, you want to incorporate products that help cool down the skin and reduce inflammation.
After a day in the sun, say YES to:
- antioxidants-rich ingredients
- cooling ingredients
- anti-inflammatory ingredients
After a day in the sun, say NO to:
- acids and enzymes
- stimulating/warming ingredients
- aggressive topicals that may cause mild inflammation
