I used to love being outside in the sunshine.
I also was a sun-lover and loved getting a tan. True to my Type 3 nature, I spent many summers as a lifeguard so I could get paid to get a tan!
More recently in my life, learning how to take better care of my skin and complexion has become important to me. Using a healthy sunscreen is on my list.
Your skin expresses your true nature.
I teach about this in my post, 4 Types of Skin: Which One Describes You<. No matter what Type of skin you have, taking good care of it is so important.
I still have a very active lifestyle. I love to go on hikes and walks, ride my bike, and swim. At 63 years old, I am healthy and love to be outdoors as much as possible! But I’ve learned to take excellent care of my skin and prevent any further sun damage.
That’s why I decided to put together my top five tips for taking care of your skin while in the sun.
Top 5 Tips for Taking Care of Your Skin in the Sun:
1. Wear protective clothing.
2. Wear sun protective skin care.
Even if you’re not planning a day at the beach, wearing sun protection every day is very important.
Our BB Cream in the DYT Online Store is a great choice for your SPF. It’s a light, moisturizing formula with SPF 18 and nourishing ingredients to help rejuvenate the skin. It serves multi-functionally as your foundation, moisturizer, and sunscreen in one amazing product.
3. Layer your skin care.
Using products that have natural sun protection ingredients in them will create a layering effect. The Neck Restoring Cream from the DYT Anti-Aging Skincare line is a great product for layering because it contains green tea. Green tea is high in antioxidants, helping to reverse skin damage as well as prevent it.
4. Hydration and Diet.
Yes, this plays into sun damage as well.
If your skin is not properly hydrated you’re going to see more fine lines and texture.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants will also help protect from the inside out. Carrots and sunflower seed oil are a good source of beta-carotene, which has been shown in studies to help make skin less sensitive to the sun. And studies show that drinking green tea can lower the risk of skin cancer.
Make sure to stay hydrated and include antioxidant-rich foods in your diet every day and your skin will be less damaged and more radiant.
You don’t need a tan to look and feel beautiful!
Put your health first and your skin will thank you. Many women find that their fair skin is beautiful and they don’t want a tan.
Remember that loving your skin right now will help you create more balance with it.
Educate yourself to know what works for your skin type and then do what’s correct for you.
Your skin will thank you as you grow older and you find it’s still glowing with health because you invested in it.
God Bless You,
