Spring Skincare 101

We all feel better looking when we're sun kissed. But unfortunately (and ironically) acquiring a “healthy-looking” tan is one of the unhealthiest things we can do to our skin. Any dermatologist worth their weight in retinoids will tell you that repeated exposure to UV-radiation accelerates premature signs of aging. Wrinkles, sagging, brown spots, uneven tone and sometimes deadly skin cancers like melanoma are the price we ultimately pay. The summer tan is a short-term folly with serious, long-term consequences.

Discipline

That’s what it takes to ward off the sun’s exposure and resist the temptation to tan. It’s a daily, year-round commitment because you’re exposed even when you’re not outside; harmful UV rays come through windows in your office, home, or car. 

Offense is the best defense

You can thwart the sun’s damage by committing to daily sunscreen. According to cancer.net, we should be using sunscreen even when it’s cloudy outside. 

Shady character

Today’s tech fabrics mean that you can cover up without sweltering. It’s not enough to just cover up; if you can see light through a fabric, UV rays can get through, too. 

Rock your inner starlet 

A wide-brim hat will protect your face, neck and ears and sunglasses with max UV absorption will protect your eyes (and together, make you seem mysterious). 

Gentle touch

According to the Mayo Clinic, summer is a time to be gentle with your routine - daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll, especially when it’s under the stress of sun exposure. Clark's Botanicals formulas are packed with high concentrations of skin-correcting vitamins and antioxidants which help to repair daily damage and replenish and rejuvenate dull, stressed skin.

From the inside out

Eating a breakfast or lunch rich in healthy fats and antioxidants will help protect your skin by engaging your own cells to fight off the day’s stress from inevitable sun exposure. Eating a rainbow of produce and Omega-3 fatty acids early in the day will help your skin form its own defense. 

Not your mother's sunscreen

Invisible Hero SPF 30 our multiple award-winning new broad spectrum mineral sunscreen engages clean, natural ingredients and partners them with the latest skincare technology. Lightweight and complex, Invisible Hero promotes overall skin health improves skin’s appearance and offers added defense against blue light exposure and environmental stressors.
