protect against UV damage

Down, set, hike! The weather’s warming up, and more and more time will be spent in the sunny outdoors cheering at games, swimming laps, and running races. Avoid getting caught off guard by additional environmental exposure and prep your pre-sun game plan today! Simply follow the below playbook for everything you need to defend against UV damage while you’re out and about:

Morning Perfection:

Did you know that humans don’t naturally produce Vitamin C? That’s why a daily internal and external dose is necessary for skin health. Mom was onto something when she told you to drink your orange juice every morning!

For your external dose, make our Perfect C™ Serum the first step in your morning skin care routine. Formulated with the only ACTIVE form of Vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid helps protect skin against environmental damage and reduce the appearance of dark spots. This action-packed serum also contains BioAstin™, a carotenoid derived from volcanic seaweed to provide intensive antioxidant action.

All Day Protection:

Sunscreen – Sun protection is an all day, every day kind of thing, and is the best method to defend against UV damage. Our broad-spectrum, mineral-based Sun Shield SPF 28 provides environmentally safe, UVA/UVB protection for your face and body. We’ve also added soothing aloe and Vitamin E to help reduce signs of sun-induced irritation. This lightweight formula absorbs quickly for a clear, matte finish and is even gentle enough for children! Be sure to reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating for consistent protection.

Drink water – It’s important to hydrate your skin from the inside as well! Our skin is the largest organ in our body and is made up of 64% water. Maintaining proper hydration from the inside and outside helps maintain elasticity, absorption, and circulation—all of which lend a helping hand to your skin care products.

Cover up – Pack a long sleeve, lightweight shirt for an added layer of protection from the sun’s rays. Regardless of skin tone, it’s always a good idea to take a break in the shade throughout the day.

Use your melon – Watermelon is one of our favorite summer fruits! It’s packed with antioxidants beta-carotene and lycopene that help protect your skin from environmental damage.

Evening Correction:

Protecting your skin before damage happens is the best way to keep it in shape, but unfortunately, time machines don’t exist yet! For those reminiscing on some memorably painful sun burns, don’t beat yourself up! Our dermatologist-tested Remarkable Retinal™ Serum contains the most potent non-prescription form of Vitamin A to promote healthy skin renewal and help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This advanced, non-irritating formula includes Ceramide 3 and Orange Plant Stem Cells to provide essential moisture, protect against environmental damage, and reduce redness. Apply to a damp face every night post-cleanse and pre-moisturizer to help correct UV damage.

Our MyChelle Estheticians recommend all skin types incorporate the essential combination of Vitamin A (Retinal), Vitamin C, and full-spectrum sun protection into their daily skin care routine. We call these the Beauty Key 3—a tailored, do-everything trio that covers all your bases for the ultimate defense against UV damage. Use consistently to help perfect, correct, and protect all types of skin from morning to night!
