Let me start by saying that summer is not the only time of year we need to protect our skin. But, if there is a time we want that golden tan and tend to be lenient on our skincare routine, it is the busy summer months. If you can look back these past several weeks and say you were conscious everyday and kept the right SPF on consistently then give yourself a healthy pat on the back. If you are running to check if that moisturizer you use even has any SPF in it, don’t worry. We can work on repairing the damage the sun is doing to your skin – even the damage you can’t see in the mirror.
The sun causes 90% of all visible skin aging. And the majority of the damage doesn’t come from sunburns. Unlike a burn that is caused by UVB rays, damage from UVA rays won’t show up until years later. That’s because these sneaky rays go deeper into the skin. There, they mutate the skin’s DNA and scramble the structural matrix. If you were to lay a thin slice of cheese on top of scrambled eggs, it might hold its shape for a while, but eventually, the cheese will start to take on the shape of the scrambled eggs below. This is what happens to the surface of your skin! UVA is just as strong all day and all year long. They can also get through clouds and glass, making a broad-spectrum UVB/UVA sunscreen a must, year-round!
Try thee products nightly or right after all day sun exposure.
Face the Day Sunscreen & Firming Primer: 3-in-1 daily moisturizer that protects your skin from the cumulative effects of sun exposure. Worn alone or as a makeup primer.
Day Undone: This sun-repair serum is not greasy and absorbs quickly. Ideal after a day in the sun to heal UV touched skin and even great for wind-chapped and extra dry winter skin. If you use the Dream Repair Night Cream, this works great under that.
Erase the Day: This mineral removing cleanser will help wash the impurites and sunscreen away at the end of the day. Gentle enough to use at night.
Dream Repair: This sun-repair night cream is great after the Day Undone serum.This is a ‘night cream’ because it does contain AHA which increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun but it is these alpha hydroxy acids that help renew your skin that blends in very quickly.
Aloe Vera After-Sun Gel Spray: All the protective and healing power of aloe vera, without any sticky residue! Organic aloe vera provides a healing and protective benefit that is ideal for sunburns, but also works well as a daily moisturizer to soothe dry or irritated skin.
So, what do you think? This sounds like it could be a great skin regimen for you. Try them all in sets or buy what you feel will benefit you most at Goddess Garden.
