Although it may seem like we are leaving summer behind, our skin still requires all the protection it can get from the sun. Despite the arrival of August and on-coming of Fall, SPF is still a much-required part of your skincare routine. SPF offers protection against the aging effects of the harmful UV rays; these are the main culprit behind the wrinkles and hyperpigmentation you may find on your skin.
Shield yourself from the enemy- UV rays of the sun
The ideal usage of SPF is to use it every 4 hours and apply it generously to both the face and neck. Also, there are many moisturizers with SPF that you can find and use for the hotter months. It is recommended to limit the number of products you apply to your skin as it can cause clogged pores, oily skin, and can lead to acne or spots. But make sure that your dual purposed moisturizer has a decent amount of SPF so that your skin receives the protection it needs.
But apart from lots of sunscreen, the best way to stay protected against the sun is to stay out of it. This means using coverups when on the beach and wide-brimmed hats to keep your face away from the harm. However, there are other ways to give your skin the cooling effect it deserves.
Exfoliating can be your best friend under the hot sun. Due to the SPF, moisturizers, and not to mention sweat, your clogged pores will thank you for the exfoliation! Using a gentle exfoliator more often in these months will remove the settled oils that result in acne.
Products for you to love this season!
Pair this exfoliation with a good serum, and your skincare routine will be perfect. The Project E Beauty Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a Vitamin C serum that targets the effects of the sun on your skin. The serum is formulated with natural and organic ingredients, and it is vegan! It is multipurpose, and with one facial massage, you can dark spots, pores, wrinkles, and fine lines.
You can even use this serum with a face roller. The Ice Roller Cold Therapy is great for the warmer months especially due to the significant cooling effect it has on the skin. It provides your sun-stressed skin with a wonderful facial massage, and combined with the hyaluronic acid serum, your skin will start to glow within a few days.
Of the many functions of the ice roller, you will definitely love that it fights against tired eyes and facial fatigue. Even using it once daily for just 10 minutes can offer you a “quick” lift and it can reduce muscle tension around the eyes and jaws.
So, if you are looking for an easy and convenient way to deal with sun-stressed skin, these two products will not fail to impress you!
