Preventing Sun Damage Like a Pro

Preventing Sun Damage Like a Pro

Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated is especially important during the warmer months. Sun exposure and environmental factors can take a toll on your skin. To keep your skin safe and hydrated, you need to make sure that you are using the right products with proper coverage.

Sun protection is key to protecting your skin from sun damage. Make sure that you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Also, make sure that it contains both UVA and UVB protection for complete coverage.

In order to keep your skin safe and healthy in the environment, it is important to use products that work with your sun protection factor (SPF). Such products not only protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays but also contain powerful ingredients such as antioxidants and vitamin C that help defend against environmental aggressors, such as Designer+Cosmeceuticals Prevent+ Serum. D+C Prevent+ contains 3 powerful antioxidants that work together to be as strong as an SPF 8 sunscreen! They also absorb light and provide extra defense against free radicals. With regular use of these products, you can help reduce sun damage, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

In terms of hydration, look for products that contain hyaluronic acid, propylene glycol or low concentration alpha hydroxy acid as these will help keep your skin moisturized without feeling greasy or heavy. Try our HYDRATE toner which contains 2% glycolic acid and aloe.  You can also add an aloe-infused moisturizer to provide extra hydration while soothing any irritation caused by sun exposure.
