Summer skin care: Incredible as it may seem, summer skin care routine is in the works . With summer almost here, everyone is looking forward to being outdoors and having fun at the beaches with family and friends. Little do most know that those few blissful hours under the sun will probably bring skin problems later in life. Why is sunlight so bad for our skin? The fact is that sunlight is actually much needed for our well being. The sun’s energy works with the body to produce vitamin D, which helps us stay away from depression and heart diseases. Sunlight is actually critical to health.
The problem actually relates to overexposure. When we expose ourselves to too much consecutive sunlight, free radicals are formed in our skin. Free radicals are molecules in a state that is very excited and unstable because they are missing an electron. They crash into other molecules until they obtain the missing electron, but the transferred electron comes from a molecule that will now be in the same excited state. The process is called oxidation because it usually starts with a charged oxygen molecule and is very destructive, changing the composition of cells at a molecular level. It is suspected of causing major problems including premature aging and skin cancer. The chain reaction can be interrupted by antioxidants, which are our body’s main defense to stop free radical cell damage.
It is important to understand as well, that there are many things that you can do to ensure great skin during and after this summer.
Stay out of the sun during peak hours of 10 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon, and shorten the length of time you will be under the sun. The ideal amount of exposure is 15 minutes in the morning, and 15 minutes in the afternoon. If your agenda will require longer exposure, use a hat, large sunglasses (that protect the critical anti aging area of crows feet), and a high spf sunscreen (50+) that has physical blocks as opposed to chemical agents (look for zinc oxide and titanium dioxide on the label).
enhance your antioxidant defenses by eating a healthy balance of grains and colorful vegetables in every meal. If you are over the age of 30, it is also recommendable to raise the antioxidant absorption in the skin cells through the use of serums. We always recommend using DermaNotion serums for this application. They have several of the best natural antioxidant serums that use active delivery systems.
Every day, consume ½ ounce of water for each pound of body weight, and after showering, apply a skin-type appropriate moisturizer. The body uses water not only for circulation and delivery of nutrients, antioxidants, and antibodies, but also for intracellular operations that support antioxidant defenses and create glowing youthful skin.
Stressing is another factor that debilitates the antioxidant defenses of the body. To keep stress in check, have massages at least on a monthly basis, find a place for you to have daily uninterrupted meditation, do things that are just for fun, find the positives in any situation, forgive soon and often, contribute abundantly to the lives of those you love, and get pampered regularly to recharge.
Skin care does not replace a healthy lifestyle, and adequate prevention, but there are solutions if you have already suffered damage. Solutions include an array of anti aging and skin peels techniques to correct sun damage like hyper pigmentation spots, uneven skin and wrinkles.
