Quick Tips for Going Out in the Sun and Still Having Great Skin – Undo Sun Damage

Anti-oxidants provide sun protection

Try to protect your sun from the skin so you don’t have to do much to undo sun damage. It’s not only what you put on your skin that protects it from the sun. Antioxidant vitamins may help combat sunburn by aiding the skin’s ability to fight off damaging free radicals generated by UV light. According to a study conducted by The American Academy of Dermatology, people who took oral supplements of natural vitamins E and C increased their resistance to sunburn by 20 percent.

Wear sunscreen 

All sunscreen products have SPF (=sun protection factor) of at least 2. It’s not enough to apply sunscreen once. You need to know how often to apply it or should we say re-apply it. It’s important  to pay attention to the SPF number. It tells you how long the product will protect your skin based on your skin’s tolerance to UV rays. So if you turn red after 10 minutes, and you use an SPF 15, you’ll be protected 10 x 15 or 150 minutes. So after 150 minutes or before that, reapply sunscreen and you’ll avoid getting sunburn.

Nighttime regimen to help undo skin damage from the sun  

Step 1  After cleansing your face, exfoliate your damp skin with a gentle alpha hydroxy scrub. This will help smooth away dry, sun-damaged cells from the skin’s surface. Rinse with warm water.

Step 2  Apply a product with hydroquinone, a bleaching agent that helps fade blotches. Then apply a skin product enriched with alpha hydroxy acids. 

Step 3
Moisturize the delicate skin around the eyes with an eye cream that has antioxidant properties to undo sun damage. Gently pat the cream along the tops of your cheekbones. Don’t pull the delicate skin under your eyes.  The eye cream we recommend for the area around the eyes is NeoStrata Bionic Eye Cream  (Click product name to get details).

An excellent anti-oxidant cream to undo sun damage for the face is  Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex (Click product name to get details). It counteracts free radical activity and reconditions and protects the skin. This top notch anti-oxidant cream is suited to all skin types.
