The sun is upon us! (literally). Between March to April, the sun is pretty much overhead us, making the days warmer and the sun rays stronger. What does this mean to your skin? Well, it means that your skin needs a lot more protection, and a heavy duty skin protection regime needs to be embraced, to keep your skin safe from the harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Following are 5 easy ways to sun-proof your skin this season – with minimal effort!
1. Coconut Oil
Fortified with Vitamin E that actively nourishes and protects your skin, applying half a teaspoon of pure coconut oil on your skin before you face the sun is a simple way of staying sun protected! Labelled as a natural sun-screen, coconut oil acts as a layer on your skin, providing protection from harmful sun rays. However, this option is only recommended if you have dry or normal skin, as is not recommended for oily skin.
2. Incorporate a moisturizer with sun protection into your make-up routine
Most of us pay significant focus to our daily make-up routine. What if you can make your make-up sun proof? When Lacto Calamine is a part of your daily routine, your skin is automatically sun protected. Acting as a moisturizer, skin healer and protector from UVA and UVB rays, the Lacto Calamine lotion, which contains Zinc Oxide that actively protects against sun damage, is one of the easiest means by which you can protect your skin from harmful sun rays.
Your eyes are one of the most sensitive elements of your face which is not covered by sunscreen. Protect your eyes by regularly using a pair of sunglasses to cover up – it will help your eyes stay safe from harmful UV rays and help protect your sight in the long run.
4. Cover Up
Your wardrobe plays a significant role in protecting your skin from harmful sun rays. Always try to cover the sensitive sun exposed areas of your skin – the back of your neck, shoulders and arms etc. Use a shawl or an umbrella when you go out in the sun – an additional layer of protection is always recommended.
5. Moisturize – Moisturize – Moisturize
You know what the sun and the heat does to your skin? It dries it up. Always give priority to moisturizing your skin with a moisturizer that can heal and protect your skin. Look out for ingredients such as witch hazel, which protects your skin; Calamine which includes Zinc Oxide, which actively protects against UV damage, and protect and heals from sun damage; all of which are ingredients of Lacto Calamine!
All it takes, are a few lifestyle changes for you to completely protect your skin from harmful sun rays. Take action and don’t let your skin get damaged by the sun!
