The arrival of summer means happy times and sunny days! Whether it's a lazy beach day, outdoorsy trips to hike and camp, or just a little more time on the front porch, we’re all upping our exposure to the glorious sunshine.
As you’re enjoying the extra dose of vitamin D, your body is inevitably exposed to the sun’s strong UV radiation. While sunlight provides many benefits, spending too much time outdoors and getting hit daily by the sunshine can leave your skin with damage that you can’t even see. Or worse - damage that you can see, like a red, uncomfortable sunburn! Either way, it's time to be more thoughtful about using products that help the appearance of this damage with super-soothing & reparative ingredients.
Prevent and repair post-sun skin with some of nature’s most rejuvenating ingredients–Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Papaya Enzymes—all innovative remedies to relieve the symptoms of over-sunned skin
Why is Aloe Vera Good for Skin?
Aloe Vera is used in hospitals to heal inflamed and irritated skin, and is supported by many clinical studies. It has also been proven to powerfully support the health, texture, and integrity of the skin.
With more than 200 biologically active agents, Aloe Vera is one of the world’s most well-loved ingredients for optimizing your skin’s well-being!
Anti-aging: Aloe vera provides skin the support it needs to stay firm and youthful. That’s why our Night Time Antioxidants Repair Serum is an excellent alternative to water-based skin care, as it contains pure aloe vera juice. Paired with jojoba, shea butter, and lavender, this calming treatment works overnight to fight free radicals and reverse signs of aging.
Soothing: Due to its potent cooling effect, aloe vera has been used for centuries as an instant solution to calm skin irritation and inflammation. If you’ve been out in the sun all day, slather our Deep Hydration Masque all over your body to give it a quick fix: soothe any sunburn and counteract dehydration.
Oily Skin and Clogged Pores: Aloe vera is a gentle and purifying ingredient used to remove dirt and impurities from your skin. It’s great for oily complexions due to its natural saponins, which help to unclog pores and minimize the appearance of breakouts. Try it in our Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser.
Why is Vitamin E a Must-Have Ingredient?
Vitamin E oil is an antioxidant and nutrient-rich powerhouse for glowing and supple skin. As you may have noticed, it is used as a primary ingredient in several green beauty products.
So what good does Vitamin E really do for your skin?
Nourishes Skin: Highly penetrable to the epidermis, vitamin E promotes active cellular activity and moisturizes skin barriers from within. This nourishing oil is used to combat excessive dryness and dehydration, retaining moisture balance and preventing transepidermal water loss.
Reverses Signs of Aging: No woman wants premature wrinkles, sagging skin, and devitalized under-eyes – vitamin E works to prevent free radicals, which plays an important role in the aging process. Try our Ultra Effective Eye Cream to protect & treat the most delicate part of your body.
Soothes Sunburns: Vitamin E is known to have beneficial effects in treating irritated and burnt skin. Rich in antioxidants, this potent ingredient helps neutralizes the damage caused by UV radiation and heals skin over time.
What is Papaya Enzyme Used For?
Papaya fruit contains skin-loving enzymes called papain, which are effective in exfoliating dead skin and fading the pesky brown spots that appear when you’ve gotten too much sun.
Exfoliates Skin: Papaya enzyme is rich in actives that help accelerate the shedding of dead skin cells to renew a fresh and revitalized canvas. Exfoliate the right way and gently give your skin an ultimate recovery regimen.
Prevent Hyperpigmentation: Improve and prevent sun spots & post-acne scars with papaya enzymes, designed to lighten and brighten your complexion. Get your dose of papaya enzymes in A Summer In Hossegor, bursting with excellent anti-aging benefits.
