Repair Sun Damaged Skin
Prevention isn’t always 100% foolproof, unfortunately, there is no way to stop the sun from emitting harmful UV rays from hurting your skin. With that being said, it’s crucial to utilize the natural remedies and effective treatments to repair your damaged skin.
1. Our Signature Facials
The extraction, massage, exfoliation mask, and steam application during a facial treatment leads to skin revitalization, or in other words – fresh, rejuvenated skin. This improves the appearance of the skin, giving it a healthy, balanced, and robust glow.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or use them as a solution for everything!
Lemon juice is a wonderful route for an organic remedy to sun damage on your skin, neck, and chest. The acidity in the lemons known as alpha-hydroxy pushes for cell production and nourishes the skin.
A little lemon juice on a cotton ball is just enough to stimulate all natural cell healing, production, and regrowth. Gently swab the damaged areas and leave on the skin until dry for about half an hour. Wash with warm water to hydrate skin before applying moisturizer.
Disclaimer, when using lemons to skin back to health, watch out for irritation after initial use. DO NOT leave on further than 30 minutes, doing so can further damage to your already affected skin.
3. Vitamin C
The three benefits of this vitamin:
- Rejuvenates skin by encouraging fresh, healthy cell regrowth
- Tackles premature aging of the skin by preventing free radicals that can damage collagen
- It discourages enzyme tyrosinase that plays a role in the formation of melanin that is guilty of producing dark spots.
Excess sun exposure increases free radicals that impede collagen production and accelerates aging. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields against the damage from ruining your skin. To prevent skin discoloration, reach for products such as lotions and serums that contain vitamin C. Consuming foods with vitamin C such as kale, kiwi, or oranges can help as well.
4. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is the holy grail – it has been highly praised for its many uses and we’ll tell you why. It’s loaded with healthy fatty acids and vitamin E. The fatty acids moisturize the skin naturally and the vitamin E works as an organic antioxidant that aids in diminishing inflammation from UVA and UVB rays from the sun.
A little goes a long way, so use sparingly. You can store it at room temperature or in the fridge. It works great as a moisturizer on sun damaged skin. You will notice a difference in your overall tone and complexion soon after applying a small amount a few times a day.
