The damage is done. Wrinkles, sun spots, broken capillaries, freckles, moles, dark circles under the eyes….all caused by the sun. Stop further damage and mask the signs of beach houses past…
Protect by using an SPF, daily. Even in the wintertime. Keep it simple and dust on a layer of Eminence Sun Defense Minerals, translucent or bronzing.
Uber moisturize in the evening. I like a thick natural coverage like Josie Maran’s 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil. “The liquid gold of Morocco is extracted from the nut of the Argan tree, which grows only in the Moroccan desert. Argan Oil is loaded with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, so it has amazing healing, conditioning and repairing properties.”
Hydrate from within. Are you drinking enough water?
Use a skin brightener. Brighteners help to reduce skin discoloration and inhibit melanin production which is the cause of dark spots. I like to rotate Jurlique’s Purely Bright Night Moisturizer into my evening regimen which helps heal and brighten with vitamin C, African birch extract and other antioxidants. I also use Jurlique’s Purely Bright Radiance Serum during the day as a booster under moisturizer.
Don’t forget to exfoliate. Nutrients and moisture can’t penetrate a layer of dead, dry skin cells. There are two different kinds of exfoliants: chemical (acid) exfoliants which more or less dissolve dead skin sells and physical exfoliants that are coarse and slough off dead skin. I’m slightly more partial to the physical as I can feel more of a difference – softer, smoother skin. My new fave: Glam Glow. It’s a must try, get a sample at Sephora!
Eat your veggies. Antioxidants heal the skin from the inside out.
