[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]We are finally here: We have summer vacation! Summer, sun, fresh air … Whether you go on a journey to the distant lands or bike to the pool next door; protecting your skin should be fundamental.[/dropcap]
We all know about the dangers of UVA & UVB rays. Whenever we leave the sunscreen aside, we can be sure of a painful sunburn that reminds us of our negligence.
How to make your skin sun-proof?
The preparation should begin a few weeks before the actual holiday. As a natural antioxidant serves beta carotene. It prepares the winter pale skin for the upcoming summer sun and at the same time it acts as sunscreen. You can do it via dietary supplements like beta-carotene capsules that you take, however it is better with a rich diet of fruits and vegetables. The vital substance is in yellow-orange, but also dark green fruits and vegetables such as carrots, peaches, mangoes, apricots, spinach, lettuce or chard.
Start your holidays right
Depending on skin type, it is advisable to choose a sunscreen product with a high SPF, e.g. SPF 50 is preferred, and to start off using it from the first days of the holidays throughout the hot summer season. Especially this applies for children.
The High Protection Sun Lotion SPF 50 is a super sunscreen to enter the holidays. The light and easily absorbed sunscreen lotion with SPF 50 is ideal for face and body and works fantastically with every skin tone, including that of children. The integrated UVA and UVB filters and SKIN PROTECTION COMPLEX (SPC) support the skin’s own protection system in the fight against the sun – induced UV and cell damage. Simultaneously, the SPC protects against premature light-induced skin aging and supports the regeneration process after sunbathing.
In addition, you can protect the sensitive “sun-risk areas” of the face with the High Protection Sun Stick SPF 50.
Who now believes, that you would not get tan with a high SPF sunscreen, let me tell you that a high sun protection factor only ensures that you do not get burned as fast, but it does not hinder you from tanning.
Keep protection going
Once the skin gets used to the sunlight, you can shift down a gear and rely on a sunscreen of SPF30 or SPF15. Whether spray, lotion or cream is your own choice, the effect of each product is basically the same. Remember application, both before and after sun-bathing, to renew the sunscreen. Even throughout the course of the day, you should reapply it several times to ensure best possible protection.
However, the safest way for you to spend the day is primarily under an umbrella.
When the day goes by
To give your skin relaxation and peace for the evening (Don’t believe that lying around on the beach is relaxing for your skin !!!) it is important to spoil it with After Sun Care.
The After Sun Repair Lotion is sensational. It calms and relaxes the skin and supports its regeneration. It is super comfortable in a way that any skin irritation and sensation of heat are felt alleviated and afterwards the skin feels super soft.
If my skin is stretched and tends to “rash (blush)“ despite the adequate use of sunscreen then I reach to my SOS helpers, the After Sun Fluid. This active concentration is absorbed quickly and leaves a relaxing cooling sensation on the skin. It reduces the unpleasant feelings of tension, irritation and sensation after sunbathing. My skin looks much calmer and more rested, even with a sunburn.
Keeping you tan
Anyone who wants to get his tan after the long holiday engages when fading to self-tanners.
The transparent, ultra fine Self Tanning Spray for the face and body gives a beautiful natural tan that develops after spraying within 3-4 hours and holds for a good week. Important is to exfoliate the skin thoroughly the night before to a uniform spot and to obtain streak-free result.
Enjoy your holiday!
