With all the tips and tricks provided, sometimes we still find ourselves with nasty and painful sunburn. If the summer sun does claim you, try Solarcaine Aloe Extra Burn Relief Spray, $8. With cooling and soothing properties it draws heat away from the body, providing instant reprieve.
Just like our wide brimmed hats, don’t forget to pack sunglasses for the beach! People with lighter eyes are more prone to sun damage, than those with darker eyes. Not all sunglasses are created equal, therefore when picking out the perfect pair of sunnies make sure it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Also, close fitting sunglasses offer further protection, blocking harmful rays. Aviators are an excellent summer warrior!
Building a base before extreme sun exposure slows harmful sun penetration. Try a self-tanner in the beginning of the summer, preferably one with moisturizing qualities and SPF. Jergen’s Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 does just that.
As a part of most of our daily routines, consuming some sort of caffeine jolts us into action. However, we are constantly reminded to curtail excessive consumption, which most of us are guilt of. Instead of ingesting this stimulant, new studies suggest using caffeine topically promotes anti-aging. Also, fewer skin cells are damaged when exposed to excessive ultraviolet rays.
