Many people may think that sun protection is an optional step in skincare routines—until they hear about the consequences of sun exposure.
There are plenty of good reasons why people should worry about the effects of sun exposure. To illustrate, Verywell Health shares that 90% of all symptoms of skin injury stem from ultraviolet (UV) light. Aside from creating skin injury, UV radiation can also lead to skin thinning, wrinkling, pigment changes, and even skin cancer.
So before it’s too late, make sure you protect your skin against sun damage through these natural strategies:
Apply natural ingredients that help with preventing sun damage
Your skincare routine serves as your primary protection against sun damage. As such, you need to protect your face and body from harmful UV rays by using Lisa Noto products with natural ingredients that are specifically useful for this purpose. One of these ingredients is Moringa oil, which can prevent sun damage and provide your skin with lots of antioxidants & anti-inflammatory compounds. Another ingredient that you should look for is cocoa butter and powder because its antioxidant content can serve as a barrier against free radicals that damage your skin.
Wear clothes that can reduce your sun exposure
You can also protect your skin from the sun by wearing the right clothing, especially if you’re going to sunny areas like the beach. Fortunately, Fashionable Clothing states that dressing appropriately for the beach can help you look stylish while you’re protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays. To illustrate, you can wear a pair of high-waisted pants to cover up your swimsuit and protect your legs from sun damage. You can also put on linen or cotton button-down shirts to cover your upper body as you walk under the sun.
Choose organic sunscreens that can provide sun protection
Aside from wearing clothes that reduce sun exposure, you should also apply organic sunscreens for better protection. Try to look for mineral sunscreens with ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to naturally protect your skin from the sun. Cosmetics and Toiletries explains that titanium oxide is a naturally occurring compound that is usually found in the earth's crust in three forms. This natural ingredient also happens to be well-known for its ability to absorb UVB rays, and it’s typically paired with zinc oxide which can absorb UVA rays.
Use hats that can protect your face from the sun’s rays
Even if you aren't headed out to the beach, you can still accessorize your outfit and shield your face from the sun by wearing a hat whenever you go out. The Mayo Clinic Health System recommends that you wear wide-brimmed hats throughout hut, sunny days. Plenty of people forget to reapply their sunscreen after two hours, which is why it’s important to wear a hat that can cover your face from the sun’s harmful rays. If you’re not going to the beach, a cap or even a bucket hat would serve as a good alternative for stylish wide-brimmed hats.
You don't have to choose between keeping your skin safe from the sun and staying away from harmful ingredients. Through these natural tips, you can nourish and protect your skin, at the same time.
