Using a sunscreen with at least 5% Zinc oxide, is a great start to sun protection. Now that summer is here, here are some other fun ways to get even better protection!
Everyone needs their vitamins. In fact they play such an important role internally as well as externally. The Heliocare vitamin supplement
(retailed at $66), provides antioxidant protection, while reversing damaged skin DNA. It’s recommended that the supplement be taken 30 minutes before sun exposure, and then one more time 2 hours after exposure if you are planning on being outside for a prolonged period of time. This vitamin does NOT take place of your sunscreen, but gives you added protection to your SPF.
Another way to add to your sun protection, is wearing sun protective clothing. Sun protective clothing, like other clothing has come a long way with style. Coolibar’s clothing line has a wide, colorful variety of jackets, wraps, hats and tops! Coolibar has zinc oxide woven into the fabric, and is UPF 50+. One of my Coolibar favorites is the shapeable travel hat (retailed at $45). It comes in a variety of fun summer colors, white, black, teal, tan, coral and navy. It packs away easily for trips, and shapes to your preference while gardening, or a day at the beach! Another one of my favorites is the Coolibar Shoreline Cover Up (retailed at $79). It’s a light jacket, with breathable fabric to keep you cool in the warmest weather! (Available in-store only)
Finally, who doesn’t want something that’s travel size? The Colorscience Sunforgettable starter kit (retailed at $ 50) is great to throw in your bag for the day out. It contains an SPF 30 makeup primer, SPF 50 powder sunscreen, and a small hydration mist spray. You’ll be getting the sun protection along with the hydration needed to keep your skin looking youthful and fresh!
