When the sun is hiding away behind the clouds and you’re on the ski slopes it is easy to forget about the sun’s harsh rays. Sun safety is the number one wrinkle reducing step you can take to prevent sun damaged skin, just before our silicone patches for wrinkles of course! We’re here to debunk common sun safety myths in the winter and give you some tips you can take away to help soothe your winter skin and reverse sun damage.
Myth #1 You don’t need to wear sunscreen in winter.
Sun damage is influenced by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, not the temperature outside. A cold and overcast day in winter can have similar UV levels to a hot, summer day! Opt for a sunscreen that is SPF 50+ and put it on each morning as the last step in your skincare routine before makeup. If you’re spending more than 4hrs outside, we recommend reapplying.
Myth #2 When hitting the slopes, the sun won’t affect me.
Fresh snow reflects up to 80% of UV radiation. A day on the slopes can really do as much damage as a day on the beach! Don’t forget to wear your sunscreen and wear protective clothing. And for those pro skiers, did you know that for every 1,000 feet in altitude, UV exposure increases by 4%? Don’t start seeing premature signs of aging whilst on a fun family holiday! Our range of Silicone Patches are great for hydrating and support the skin’s natural ability to hydrate the skin, retain the moisture, stimulate blood flow and as a collagen booster. Pair this with our Facial Plumping Sheet Mask to infuse a clinical grade serum full of collagen, peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin to plump, hydrate and reduce uneven skin tone.
Myth #3 There is nothing you can do to reverse sun damage.
There are many solutions to correct sun damaged skin! Below are a few products you can use to help smooth fine lines and fix uneven skin tone that can appear due to sun damage.
1. Put on our Morning After Glow Serum in the AM, which is packed with skin loving ingredients. The serum contains Resveratrol which helps to reverse the signs of UV damage, the perfect rescue remedy for damaged skin.
2. Lock in hydration and smooth fine lines and wrinkles from sun exposure with our range of Silicone Patches for the forehead, eyes, chest, mouth and hands! These wonder patches for wrinkles work to stimulate collagen and renew cells.
3. Hydrate and nourish with our Décolletage Brightening Sheet Mask. This Hyaluronic Acid infused sheet mask works to hydrate dry aging skin, brighten to repair sun damage, treat uneven skin-tone and pigmentation while decreasing the appearance of cleavage wrinkles, décolletage wrinkles and crepey skin.
There are also many in-clinic options for those dealing with sun damage such as chemical skin peels which can help refresh the skin and reveal a smoother, more even complexion. Skin peels for sun damage are great to combine with our products to ensure your skin is healthy and hydrated. Skin peels for wrinkled skin are also available if you’re after treatment that helps with fine lines, these are fantastic for restarting collagen production.
