Summer: beach days, sunkissed skin, a big pair of sunglasses while you work on that special glow. Also summer: sun rash, dry skin, break outs, poison oak, bug bites…we all love the idea of a little polka dot bikini and cocktails on the beach while watching the sunset, but despite bright, sunny days, summer skin has a dark side.
It’s something most of us don’t talk about, but all of us are bound to experience at some point or another in our lives—most likely you already have.
No matter where you live, no matter if the sky is clear or cloudy, the sun never takes a vacation—even when you do. Don’t worry though, we’ve got your back – and your chest, face, arms, and legs, too. Jeunesse Global can be your sword and your skincare, all at once.
Catching Those Rays
Summer sun always comes with a cost: the need to take care to protect your skin and eyes from harmful ultraviolet light. Luckily, you can get a head start before you even step out the door. Any online weather service will give you the option to see today’s UV Index.
Anything above a one (which is almost every day, in most places!), and it’s time to break out the SPF and your sunglasses. Luckily, there are plenty of sunscreens that are up to the task! However, beyond rubbing on some SPF-rich lotions, you should also do your best to physically shield your skin from the sun.
The first line of defense should always be a good SPF, a hat, or an umbrella to shield your face from the sun, as well as lots and lots of water. SPF is so much trickier now than it used to be. There’s chemical and mineral, SPF face creams, SPF makeup, SPF powder—it can get a little overwhelming.
Motion Of the Lotion
There are two types of sunscreen: chemical and physical. Each has their own pros and cons. Chemical sunscreen is almost certainly the kind you grew up wearing. You can practically smell the ocean when you pop open the top. Chemical sunscreen works by absorbing harmful UV rays and releasing them as heat. On the other hand, physical sunscreen actively blocks UV rays because it sits on top of the skin. If you have sensitive skin, consider using a physical sunscreen.
Physical sunscreen is also more moisturizing. If you find your skin gets dry and flaky when exposed to the summer sun, a physical sunblock may be your best bet. If you’re interested in a fast-absorbing sunscreen that stays on through swimming, sweating, beach volleyball, and more, then a chemical sunscreen may be the best choice for you. Whichever way you go, it’s a step in the right direction toward keeping your skin protected from harmful UV rays.
Don’t expect your makeup to keep your skin protected, either. So many foundations tout their SPF content that you might expect your daily makeup routine to be enough to protect your face. They want you to think that their product is an all in one package, but unfortunately it’s not. The truth is that you need to apply sunscreen multiple times a day, so while your foundation might be helpful for a couple of hours, you’d need to keep slathering it on throughout the day for it to be of any continual use.
By far, the most common summer skin situation is sunburn. We’ve all had those days where we go outside in a camisole or bathing suit, wander around in the sun for a while, and end up with boiled lobster red shoulders and back. Sunburns make every move painful, and can result in blisters or peeling skin. Even though they’re awful, they’re a fact of basking in the sun. SPF, a hat, and covering up as much as you can when it’s hot can help prevent sunburns by shielding parts of your skin from the sun. However, despite those precautions, sometimes you get burned anyway. So what to do? Aloe vera is always a good bet for soothing angry skin. It helps the skin retain moisture, which is especially helpful when hours in the summer sunshine turn your skin dry and scaly.
Luckily, there are moisturizers that nourish your skin and protect it from the sun all at once. Jeunesse Global has you covered—literally. Luminesce daily moisturizing complex is a tried and tested formula that keeps you covered, in the present and into the future. A light moisturizer that’s weightless enough for daily use, Jeunesse daily Luminesce shields your skin with SPF 30 and treats existing signs of aging with a broad spectrum of active ingredients including APT-200 and fruit extracts, ready to protect your skin for whatever comes your way.
If your situation is a little more dire, consider trying a mask or an overnight treatment. Jeunesse’s Luminesce Advanced Night Repair is an excellent option. Advanced Night Repair is a rich treatment that works to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. You’ll wake up with a glow, skin nourished, and ready to conquer your day — after you apply some sunscreen, of course!
Okay, great, you’ve got your skin covered, but is there anything else you can do? In fact, there is! It can reach triple digits in some places, so no matter what you’re doing, drinking water is essential. We’re all going to sweat it out under the summer sun at some point, and we have to replenish the water we’re losing. Luckily, Jeunesse’s Naara can help you not only replace that water, but support your skin’s health and make you glow from the inside out.
Each package of Naara provides 5000mg of TruMarine Collagen. Sun damage can accelerate the signs of aging, such as crows feet, wrinkles, dark spots, but Naara not only helps replenish the collagen skin loses over time, it also supports normal collagen formation in the future. This collagen can help fill out those fine lines and wrinkles, providing you with a more youthful appearance thanks to your healthy skin.
Naara ensures that you get the water you need, the water that your body craves, but with a little something extra, protecting your skin for the future. Not to mention, hydration is a major factor in skin health anyway, so the hydration offered will help keep your skin at it’s best!
So what happens when you’ve been enjoying the sun all summer and maybe slacking a little on the SPF, so you’re seeing some fine wrinkles on your face? Of course, Naara is a great option for helping combat the appearance of those fine lines over time, but when you have a social event coming up, you may not have time to wait for that long-term solution. For those who need a short-term solution, there is Instantly Ageless. Instantly Ageless can help with the look of forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, hooded eyes, under-eye bags, crow’s feet, and enlarged facial pores— all in the space of seconds! While it may sound too good to be true, this amazing product can help firm and tone your skin’s appearance in under two minutes. When you want to look your best and make a great impression at a summer event, it’s a great solution.
With a combination of water, diligence, and a helping hand from the right products, you can ensure that you can enjoy the sun while keeping your skin moisturized, nourished, and healthy.
