Stop Signs of Aging This Summer
By NewBeauty Editors |
Prepping your skin for summertime should at the forefront of your to-do list. Look for products that contain protective ingredients such as SPF and aloe vera, which work to keep your skin hydrated, shielded from the sun and looking healthy throughout the warmer months.
SPF: Protects Skin
Sun exposure can be detrimental to your skin and can lead to dryness that can be mistaken for early signs of aging. A broad- spectrum SPF can help shield skin from the sun’s rays while also locking in natural moisture.
Aloe Vera: Hydrates + Repairs
Aloe Vera contains a variety of healing properties that replenish skin’s lost moisture from the sun, while also providing a plethora of anti-aging ingredients that help improve elasticity and hydration.
Zinc Oxide: Reflects Sunlight
Much like a mirror covering your skin, zinc oxide is virtually weightless and works to reflect sunlight to keep the sun’s rays from reaching your skin.
Collagen: Boosts Elasticity
Because sunlight breaks down the collagen in your skin at a higher rate than the natural aging process, excessive sun exposure is the main culprit for premature skin aging. Restoring your skin’s lost collagen is crucial to maintaining youthful skin this summer.
Inside tip: Protecting your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is an important step to avoid damage. Look for a broad- spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and don’t forget to reapply every two hours.
