Guest Post: Take Care In the Sun with Natural Beauty Products
Whether you’re planning your summer getaway or a winter sun break to get away from the bitter cold of home, it’s important to know that sun exposure can cause significant damage to your skin, so it’s always sensible to take precautions. Everybody knows the importance of using sun protection with SPF while out in the sun, but in addition you should care for your skin by using a daily routine including natural beauty products designed to combat the damage caused by the sun.
The sun is a primary cause of premature ageing and can be responsible for fine lines and wrinkles on the face, because it can reduce skin elasticity. UVA from the sun has an ageing effect because it damages collagen, the protein which keeps skin strong and smooth.
It is vitally important to keep skin moisturised by using a good natural cream daily. The sun can make skin feel dry, so restoring the hydration levels of skin is essential day and night. Many natural creams contain vitamins, such as A, C and E, which have an antioxidant effect. The aim of antioxidants for the skin is to counter the effects of UVA exposure and help to promote healthy collagen, meaning fewer wrinkles.
Whether you’re planning a holiday or not, we all like to get out in the sun when we can so it’s sensible to remember, in addition to SPF protection, to take care of your skin with natural beauty products which can help reverse the damaging effects caused by the sun.
Remember that prevention is better than cure and it is never a good idea to have extended exposure to the sun, and you should use a good quality natural cream all year round to maintain the best skin health, not just when you’re going to be out in the sun.
