Did you apply and reapply sunscreen whenever you spent time outside this summer or did you forget from time to time? If you’re like most people, you fall into the latter category. Whether this resulted in tan or a sunburn, one thing is for sure: you have sun damage.Although you intend to protect your skin from damaging UV rays whenever you go outside, it’s not always possible. Applying sunscreen in the morning before you leave the house does provide some protection for your skin; however, it’s often not enough. Do you reapply it throughout the day, whenever you know you’re going outside? If you’re like most people you don’t. Who wants to stop what they’re doing to run to the loo and apply sunscreen, whether you’re at the office or on vacation?
Repair and heal sun damageSun damage happens to all of us. The good news is there is something you can do about it. Here are some brightening serums and masks to add to your skincare routine. Remember to apply them after thorough cleansing.
Exfoliating CleanserExfoliating is essential to slough away dulling skin cells. Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser dissolves cellular dirt and debris while leaving the skin feeling cool and clean. It contains peppermint essential oil to help accelerate circulation. Skin is left radiant and glowing. If your skin is oily, try Clarify Salicylic Cleanser. It’s ideal for oily skin that is prone to random breakouts. It cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture.
Serums to heal and reverse sun damageThe unfortunate consequence of sun damage includes dark spots and discolouration. Simply Brilliant Brightening Serum is a mild brightening serum that contains ten plant-based ingredients proven to brighten and even skin tone. It’s a safe and gentle Tyrosinase inhibitor serum that even stops new problem areas from appearing. The formula offers powerful antioxidant protection to heal the skin and create an even, bright complexion. Apply it every morning or evening and be sure to apply sunscreen to continue to protect your skin. Vitamin C is essential for glowing skin. Add Pure C Mixing Crystals to your favourite skincare products, like Simply Brilliant, for additional brightening benefits. The crystals are a non-irritating and stable form of Vitamin C. It’s also easily absorbed by the skin. Another consequence of sun damage is premature ageing. Keep age spots and premature lines and wrinkles at bay by using a peptide-rich serum.
