These Tips Will Keep Your Skin Safe In The Sun

Imagine a bright day out on the beach: you’re with your friends, the waves are splashing, the breeze is just perfect, nothing seems off right? 


Well, on the surface, things are going great, but your skin is internally screaming because something is wrong! The sun is frying your cells; salt from the ocean is drying directly on you; sand is blowing everywhere and rubbing against you.


A simple day out can easily be a terrible day for your skin.


Over time, damage from the sun’s harmful rays can cause free radical damage, which ages the skin.

Even with proper prevention in the form of sunscreen and shade, the skin eventually loses its elasticity and strength. Continued exposure can lead to dark spots and wrinkles. But it’s not like you can stay inside all day long - we’ve all got lives to live! So what can you do to keep your skin safe and healthy? 


Well, there are both preventive and corrective ways to maintain and treat skin. 

Preventive

1. Sunscreen is still a highly effective way to up your defenses against the sun’s rays and other harmful environmental factors. Just remember to reapply every 2 hours or else you won’t be getting the same benefits!


2. No matter how lazy you get at the end of the day, remember to wash your face! We get it, sometimes you’re just so tired, you need to pass out. But when you sleep with all that makeup on, you’re also sleeping with all the dust and pollutants that you’ve collected on your face throughout the day. That’s just… no. Properly cleansing your face and applying the proper skincare will prevent wrinkles from deepening and will slow down the process. Some experts even say that when you sleep with makeup on, you will age seven times faster. Yikes!

Corrective

No matter how hard we try, we won’t be able to completely prevent aging and skin breakage. So what can we do then to at least correct some of the problems that occur?

1. As the skin loses its elasticity and ability to retain moisture and tension, sagging and wrinkles naturally occur. We recommend the All-in-One Anti-Wrinkle Patches for a complete treatment that targets all potential problem areas. Made with medical grade silicone, the patches create an ideal microclimate to properly hydrate and straighten wrinkles and fine-lines. Use in combination with our vitamin C serum for an extra boost of antioxidants to fade dark-spots.


2. The OIA Skin Derma Face Lifting Mask both physically lifts up your jawline to sharpen features and uses vitamin E, collagen, and seaweed to maintain those results. These products work in hand to reverse the effects of aging while being safe alternatives to other more dangerous procedures.


So the next time you’re out in the sun, remember that taking a few minutes before and after can significantly change the results of your day out. Stay safe out there!
