Yes, we said that. Sun care is one of the crucial things in skin care. It doesn't matter if you don't want to have a lot of products on your face, but sunscreen is important. It protects your skin from uv rays and this helps in preventing skin damage in the future.
Sun protection also known as sunscreen is to make sure your skin is kept healthy. It is also to create an extra barrier for your skin and the sun uv ray. Wear it daily before stepping out of your house to prevent sunburn, discolorations and dark spots. By using sunscreen, it can also maintain your skin from sagging. Not using sunscreen daily can lead to a cancerous skin in the future as your skin would be absorbing at least 80% of the sun’s rays. You need to pat the product onto your face, avoid rubbing it. Invest in a good sunscreen that has 50 spf, not more not less.
Using a self tanner is by far the easiest option to get a sun kissed glow. But do not worry, self tanning doesn't mean you will damage your skin. Most self tanner contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and it stains your outermost layer of your skin, so fret not, it won't damage your skin. Nevertheless, even if your self tanner contains spf, it is still advisable to put an extra layer of sunscreens or clothing to block out UV rays.
After Sun Care
After sun care is to repair your damaged skin that has been out in the sun for a long time and to replenish moisture. Being under the sun without sunscreen would cause free radicals to stay on your skin longer enough even when you are out of the sun. It makes your skin soothing and hydrating. Now, you can use your after sun care as a moisturiser because it is the same as moisturiser, only different is, for after sun care they add in active ingredients to make your skin feel cooler, such as aloe and bisabolol. You are encouraged to apply your after sun care after showering everyday to ensure you got your sunkissed glow all while keeping your skin healthy and vibrant.
