Who can resist the blissful allure of summer?
The sun generously splashing its golden rays, a faint breeze teasing your senses, and an infectious laughter echoing from pool or beach side gatherings with friends.
The summer days are truly a time to bask in the joy of the outdoors. Until the evening rolls around, and you're left with a painful reminder of your day under the sun.
Not to worry––we've got you covered with these 6 tips for sun recovery.
1. Armoring Up Against the Sun
We all crave the warm embrace of the sun after enduring the chilly winter and unpredictable spring showers. However, it's crucial to shield our skin from the relentless UV rays that can wreak havoc.
The armor of choice? A generous slathering of sunscreen and clothing that covers up exposed skin.
Think of sunscreen as your personal knight, battling the UV rays to prevent them from infiltrating your skin and causing premature aging, skin cancer, and other health issues.
So, before you step into nature's grand stage, don't forget to suit up!
2. Quench Your Skin's Thirst
After a day of frolicking under the sun, your skin will be parched. It's time to quench its thirst with a moisturizer designed to rehydrate your skin.
Products containing hyaluronic acid and squalane can be your skin's best friends, helping to restore its moisture levels and preventing further dehydration. Our organic Comforting Cream is clinically proven to hydrate and nourish skin.
So, next time you pack for a day at the beach or pool, tuck in a moisturizer for some much-needed after-sun pampering.
3. Cool Down The Burn
Sunburn can be a real party pooper. But mother nature has some tricks up her sleeve to help you combat the pain.
Cool baths or cold compresses can be your first line of defense, reducing inflammation and calming any swelling or redness.
For an added boost, consider adding a few drops of banana oil, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, to your bath or compress.
4. Help Your Skin Repair Itself
Our skin takes a beating from external factors like UV rays and pollution. Over time, these elements can rob our skin of its vitality, leaving it looking dull and aged.
But don't worry, there's a fix! Incorporating antioxidants into our skincare routine can help repair our skin cells.
Antioxidants like Banana Bio-Actives, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera are like the repair crew for our skin. They work tirelessly to protect and repair damaged cells, helping us reclaim our radiant and healthy-looking complexion.
Our Organic Radiance Precious Oil is ideal after sun exposure. It is composed of the Bio-active Yellow Banana Bio-actives, know for their regenerating properties. It also contains Pomegranate and Macadamia oils which can help your skin feel soothed and restored.
5. Nature's Redness Relief
When your skin turns a shade of red that rivals a ripe tomato, it's time to bring out the big guns.
The Kadalys Nutritive Oil, packed with green banana bio-actives and green tea oil, can be your secret weapon, helping to reduce the look of inflammation and redness.
For a more hands-on approach, try using cucumber slices, known for their hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties.
6. Sunburn Care 101
In dealing with sunburn, remember to keep it clean and dry. Avoid tight clothing or harsh scrubbing that can further irritate the area.
Instead, opt for a gentle facial cleanser to wash the area, and a clean, soft towel to pat it dry. With some tender loving care, your sunburn will be on the mend before you know it!
