How To: Prep Your Skin For The Summer Sun

April 03, 2017

It’s no secret, spending a day in the sun can feel good on the skin and can even help give it a little glow. But what if you knew that beneath the surface, the UV rays from the sun were causing serious damage to your flawless face? Before you run to an umbrella, we want to share a few tips on how to prepare for the sun with a skincare regimen so you can continue to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.how-to-prep-your-skin-for-the-summer-sun

1. Know the Danger

Understanding the danger the sun poses to the skin is an important first step in preparing for summer. The harmful UV rays from the sun can cause severe damage to the skin fibers. This damage can lead to irritation, redness and sagging skin. Whether you are directly in the sun or the rays are affecting your skin for indirect exposure, the damage can ultimately lead to early signs of aging in the skin. While a day at the beach is a fun way to relax and enjoy the summer, keep in mind that the sun is a real danger if the skin is not prepared.

2. Find Products That Work

A skincare regimen needs to not only contain products that work, but products that are safe. All natural skin care products enriched with vitamins will protect the skin and aid in the critical process of skin cell repair. Using a hyaluronic acid serum will help keep the skin tight and firm to combat the sagging effect caused by exposure to the sun. It will also aid in the regrowth of skin cells. Since the skin surrounding the eyes can display the most damage, it is great to have the help of a hydrating eye cream in your daily routine. This will help keep the skin firm and reduce the appearance of wrinkles that will develop over time.

3. Stick With a Routine

You know the danger. You have the products that work. Now is the time to implement a daily skin care routine that will help keep the skin protected and will prepare it for the summer sun. Stay alert when you are in the sun and do you best to avoid over exposure. Remember to use your products every day and the positive effects will not go unnoticed.

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly? 

First - Debunking Common Myths about HA 

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
