Stay safe in the sun: Why SPF is essential for your skin

Naturally Blog, June 13

Summer is here!

Yes, It’s time to head outdoors for hiking or relaxing at the beach! But before you make your plans for the summer, take a look at these helpful tips to protect your skin from sun damage.
Even on the cloudiest days, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin! Protection from the sun is thus one of the most important factors of year-round skin care.Thankfully, it’s easy to make it a habit to apply a daily sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF can protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays all year long.

Why SPF daily?

Skin protection. UVB rays from the sun are the main cause of those nasty sunburns, and prolonged exposure can severely damage your skin. Dermatologists recommend using a product with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks EyeTreatmentB4Av297 percent of the sun’s UVB rays. Higher-number SPFs block slightly more UVB rays, but there is no sunscreen that can offer complete protection.

Anti-aging benefits. Many of the visible signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines, are caused by the sun. The sun’s UVA rays can penetrate to the deeper layers of your skin and may affect how the skin rebuilds itself over time. So choose a broad spectrum SPF product to protect yourself from both UVA and UVB rays.

Healthy-looking skin! Proper skin care and protection with SPF can help your skin maintain its smooth, youthful appearance. And if you’re using a moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF daily, you you’ll be nourishing your skin while you protect it.  Who doesn’t want skin that’s healthy and glowing?

Other tips to keep you sun safe

  • “Wear light-colored, natural fiber clothing that allows your skin to breathe. Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat—a wide-brimmed hat will provide extra protection for your face as well. And look for sunglasses that block UV rays to safeguard the health of your eyes.
  • Limit direct exposure to the sun as much as possible, especially between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. when UV light is strongest.
  • To make sure that your skin stays protected all day long, reapply your sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF every two hours during exposure to sun. Apply more often when active or if you’ve been swimming—even if the sunscreen you’re using is waterproof.
  • Ensure that you apply an SPF product to all exposed parts of the body, including easy-to-forget spots like your ears, the sides of your neck, and the top of your feet.
  • Stay hydrated. It’s important to replace water lost to perspiration in the heat of the sun. Carry a water bottle with you and drink at least 8–10 glasses of water every day.”

Now go outside and play!  Have a wonderful, sun-safe summer!

5 Tips To Take Your Skin to Spring

Naturally Blog April 2018. As the days get longer and temperatures begin to climb, off go the jackets and sweaters and on go the shorts and dresses. SkinCareTipsAfter the long, cold winter, Spring is here and it’s time to spruce up our skin care routine and head out to embrace the sunshine.

Cleanse and exfoliate
The cold months can leave behind a residue of dead skin cells, leftover product, and accumulated toxins. Use a gentle, natural ingredient-based cleanser like YOUTH® Luminous Gel Oil Cleanser that’s free of artificial fragrances, harmful surfactants/detergents, and harsh chemicals. Follow your cleanser with a toner, such as YOUTH® Perfecting Skin Toner, to deep clean your pores, hydrate, exfoliate, nourish, and remove any last traces of grime.

Moisturize 
After some very drying weather, we need to rebuild our skin’s protective barrier and replenish the moisture that was lost. As humidity increases in warmer months, use lighter moisturizers to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and vibrant. You may want to try one of YOUTH’s new Power Duos. With the Hydrate + Nourish Duo, you start with Perfecting Skin Toner to exfoliate and drench your skin with deep, long-lasting hydration. This unique toner features a patented blend of vitamins, polyphenols, and botanicals to re-energize skin cells. After the toner, you just layer on Advanced Renewal Night Cream to smooth and soften your skin.

Sunscreen
The sun is out now, and all we want to do is head out after months spent indoors. If the sun is calling your name, just remember, the most important thing is to make sure you use a broad spectrum sunscreen for protection against both UVA and UVB rays, even if it’s cloudy out. To make sure that your skin stays protected all day long, reapply your SPF lotion or moisturizer every 2 hours during exposure to sun.

Give your skin a break from heavy foundation
Spring calls for a lightweight makeup solution. You can opt for a lightweight BB cream instead of heavy foundation to achieve a flawless look. YOUTH Activating BB Cream is a tinted 5-in-1 product to even, correct, hydrate, nourish, and protect skin. And it provides SPF 30 protection. A BB Cream can be a fantastic time-saver as it provides multiple benefits in one simple step (We love products that are multi-functional!).

Spring clean your skin care products and accessories
This is also a good time to spring clean and discard old skin care products that are past their expiration date. You may want to toss out old, dirty makeup sponges and brushes or products that have changed consistency, color, or smell. Also, commit to at least a monthly brush cleaning (How about the first Saturday of every month?). To wash your brushes, use a liquid hand soap or baby shampoo and rinse with lukewarm water. Gently squeeze out the water, reshape, and let brushes dry completely before using them again.

Last but not least, don’t forget your overall health. Nothing looks better on your skin than great health. Eat as many veggies as you can; drink lots of water; and avoid processed foods, trans fats, and too much sugar. And remember to exercise regularly—your skin will love you for it!
