For A Smoother Face And Body After Sun Cream
Are your skin and hair getting dry? In this article we will discuss a skin and body after sun cream. The moisture content of the skin and body is increased by the application of an SPF moisturizer to the face and body after sun cream. Moisture helps skin look and feel softer, smoother and more radiant.
SPF – Sunscreen provides excellent protection against UVA rays. UVA rays are the primary cause of premature aging. They can cause sunburns, wrinkles and other skin disorders. The use of sunscreen is recommended for all ages. Children under 18 should wear sunglasses while swimming. Adults should use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
Normal Skin – With normal skin there is less need for a moisturizer after a day in the sun. If you do need to apply a moisturizer it should be a light sunscreen lotion. The best sunscreens are the mineral based. Mineral sunscreens have the highest SPF, which will not cause skin irritation. Mineral based sunscreens last longer than the creams containing synthetic chemicals. Some of the most popular mineral sunscreen products are Garnier Gold Bond, Neutrogena Mineral Shield SPF15, Avon Sunblock Plus and L’Oreal Everpure sun block.
Oily Skin – Do not over apply your sunscreen as it can cause irritation and burns. Apply sunscreen in the morning and again in the evening. Once a day is sufficient if the application covers the entire face and body.
Dry Skin – It is recommended that after a day in the sun use a moisturizer to moisturize the face and body. If you use an SPF moisturizer, it is wise to apply the product in the morning before retiring to bed. If possible apply to the entire face and body before retiring to bed. A good moisturizer will help to maintain the skin’s natural moisture level and prevent it from drying out.
Oilier Toned – Both men and women can benefit from moisturizing with oil based natural body oils such as grapeseed, olive, cocoa butter, babassu and Shea butter. A mineral-based moisturizer containing emu oil and shea butter is best.
Oilier Body – Body oil is best left on for several hours to retain the moisture content. Body washes work well and do not appear greasy. If you apply a moisturizer to the body after a day in the sun, it is best to reapply the product immediately after being in the sun.
Creams applied to the face and body are the easiest and fastest way to repair the skin after a day in the sun. Keep applying the product until it is fully absorbed by the skin.
