Although exposure to the sun can be a real pleasure, it can also be a real threat to the health and youthfulness of your skin, both in the short and long term. Here are a few tips for looking after your skin this summer.
The sun's devastating effects are cumulative, leading to long-term physical changes such as sagging tissue, wrinkles and even skin cancer. That's why it's important not only to soothe the skin, but also to repair and protect it.
For instant comfort, apply a cooling compress directly to the affected area for 5 minutes. Choose a lotion based on anti-inflammatory and decongestant floral waters to calm local inflammation and reduce redness and burning. Try our Toning floral water infused with pure Moringa oil and anti-aging essential oil.
To repair and protect your skin, use a regenerating, soothing oil rich in vitamins A and C. It will soothe the sensitivity and discomfort associated with sunburn, repairing the skin's protective barrier while facilitating epidermal regeneration. Try our pure Moringa oil and new after-sun body lotion with a tropical fragrance.
During the day, apply and reapply FSP 30 mineral sun protection every 90 minutes. It's important to use extra protection on burnt areas. Compared with chemical sunscreens, mineral sunscreens are better tolerated by hypersensitive skin.
Exfoliate body skin in the shower with an exfoliating glove or exfoliating body care product. For the face, use a gentle exfoliant based on finely grounded Apricot Shells. This step gently removes dead surface cells, leaving room for younger cells and facilitating the absorption of moisturizers. Try our new Peach-apricot face scrub.
Finally, it's important to drink plenty of water after sun exposure.
Sunburn leads to a loss of body water, which is why we recommend drinking plenty of water! To heal, your skin needs to be sufficiently hydrated to better withstand the pain, but also because water is the golden rule. The sun dehydrates your body, which is why you look tired after a day on the beach.
Have a great summer!
