If you’re a sun lover, you may be paying a high price for good times in the sun. Excessive wrinkles and bagging skin may be making you look older than your true age. At the very least, you don’t look as healthy and young as you could. The good news is you can reverse some of the sun’s aging process. Here’s how to get rid of sunburn.
How To Get Rid of Sunburn: Essential Skincare Tips For Sun Damage
Pay attention to what you eat. The right foods can actually help nurture skin and repair the damage caused from too much exposure. Fruits and vegetables, seafood, and nuts are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Use a facial mask. By exfoliating the damaged layer of skin, the younger and healthier skin underneath is revealed. Make sure the mask you use contains safe cleansing agents, moisturizers and soothing ingredients.
Rejuvenate. Today there are many products on the market that help and enhance skin cell re-growth. This is a great way to repair your sun-damaged skin so that it looks smoother, healthier and younger. You can also find products that stimulate collagen production. Collagen is responsible for the firm skin tone like the one you had when you were years younger.
Of course it’s always easier to avoid damage than try to fix it. To keep sun damage and wrinkles at bay you should also:
Avoid direct sunlight during peak hours between 10 AM and 3 PM. Descendents make a sunscreen and everyday part of your skin care routine. An SPF of 30 or more gives the most protections. If you’re on the beach, take advantage of shade and beach umbrellas. Be sure you protect your eyes with sunglasses and your hair and scalp with a hat. In addition to sunscreen, a lip balm containing SPF should be in your arsenal of sun care protection accessories.
Use a body lotion or gel that contain natural emollients after time in the sun. This can help protect you from the ray’s drying effects. Natural plant oils sooth, heal, nurture, and moisturize without leaving an oily residue. A high quality night cream should also be a part of your skincare routine. Skin cells renew at a greater rate during the nighttime hours.
