Nothing feels better than a sunkissed summer tan, but if you spent more time outside than planned, you may have wound up with a sunburn on your face!
Sun damage can lead to tons of skin problems like redness, dark spots, and dryness. If you’ve spent too much time in the sun and you’re looking to avoid the negative effects, try these tips at the end of the day!
Wash Your Face
After a long day in the sun, you’ll want to do everything you can to avoid a sunburn at all costs. A sunburn is a way of your skin telling you it has seen too many UV rays and will show up as redness on your cheeks, forehead, or nose. One of the easiest ways to help avoid this is by making sure you take the time to wash your face properly at the end of the day before bed.
Washing your face with an oil-cleanser after being in the sun all day will help remove any traces of sweat, dirt, and sunscreen from your pores so you’ll be sure to avoid breakouts. More importantly, if you use your oil cleanser with cool water, it will help calm redness and inflammation to your face so that your skin can begin to heal itself from the sunburn. Colder water won’t just help the redness go down but it will feel refreshing and cold on your sunburned skin!
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
When skin is exposed to too much sun, it causes a sunburn – but the damage can go much deeper than you can see. Too much sun will dry out the deeper layers of your skin and can cause excessive dryness or flakes. Dry skin also accentuates wrinkles in the worst way so making sure your skin stays well hydrated after a sunburn is crucial for plumping wrinkles, calming redness, and helping your face get back to normal.
Some of the most powerful ingredients for hydrating skin can be found in our Repair & Release Cream which you should be applying every night before bed. In addition to supplying your skin with ample amounts of anti-aging peptides to help with wrinkles, it delivers deep hydration thanks to natural ingredients like Shea Butter, Argan Oil, and Cocoa Seed Butter. Not only will it boost your skin’s hydration for faster healing of your sunburn but it will have you looking and feeling your best too!
