SUN DAMAGE BE DAMNED...
If we're being honest, most of us at one point in our lives thought that sunscreen wasn't cool. We spent countless hours baking under the sun attempting to achieve golden goddess status, and figured sun damage was something only "old" people had to worry about.
And even though you're far from feeling "old", you might be looking in the mirror and seeing some of the wreckage our old pal Mr. Sunshine left behind. . .
Unless you've got a time traveling DeLorean there's no way to undo all skin damage, but there are some ways to help heal your skin and diminish signs of aging.
When done correctly exfoliating can remove dead skin cells and reveal new healthy skin underneath. This can help diminish the appearance of uneven skin or dark spots caused by sun damage.
The key to any good exfoliating routine is not to over do it. A couple times a week is all it takes to leave skin feeling fresh.
Fun fact you can make a killer exfoliator at home using our nourishing Pre-Cleanse Oil.
People have been harnessing the healing powers of Argan Oil for hundreds of years. Its impressive resume includes fighting acne, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and healing minor burns and cuts. That's because this oil contains a plethora of antioxidants and vitamins that work in tandem to heal your skin.
Argan's anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties help reverse signs of aging caused by free radicals like UV rays. And when used regularly, it can actually help boost your body's natural UV tolerance, helping to prevent future damage from the sun.
It's also the key ingredient in our Perfecting Night Oil.
HYDRATE INSIDE & OUT...
Sun damaged skin + dehydrated skin= dull tired looking skin.
If you've been reading our blogs, or posts, or emails, you probably know that the #1 ager of skin is dehydration. So if your body and skin are lacking proper hydration it's only going to make your sun damage more noticeable.
It's recommended that you drink half of your body weight in ounces every day (ex. if you weigh 120, drink 60oz), but our founder Erin swears that drinking at least 100 ounces a day is the secret to a happy, healthy life.
When it comes to quenching your skin's thirst from the outside, finding an all natural hydrator that deeply penetrates your dermis is key. Our Hydrating Beauty Oil does just that, plus it works with your skin's natural oil production to better manage your skin's ability to hydrate itself.
Vitamin C is a bit of a celebrity in the skincare community. That's because it helps manage melanin production which can help fade dark spots and uneven skin tone.
It also helps boost antioxidants that fight against free radicals that can cause UV damage.
