Summer is on its way; the weather is gorgeous, and nothing compares to a morning of fun in the sun with the family. This can inevitably lead to inflammatory skincare concerns due to overexposure to UV radiation and resultant sunburn.
Each of us has at some point in our lives experienced a sunburn (or two) and we can all attest to fact that it causes discomfort, pain, tightness, tenderness and of course, long term damage within the skin.
Just 15 minutes of exposure to the sun during midday can cause sunburn, but how does this impact our skin?
As an organ, the skin has the incredible ability to offer natural protection against sun damage in the form of melanin that naturally occurs as a protective mechanism within the skin. However, this natural protection often is not enough to withstand prolonged exposure to UV radiation, and as a result, skin burning occurs causing redness, irritation with potential swelling. On a cellular level, sunburn can cause cellular breakdown leading to photo-ageing, hyperpigmentation responses and possible skin cancer formation.
How does one go about protecting the skin against the damage that sun exposure brings?
DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care recognizes the benefits of topical antioxidant use and incorporates Vitamin C in various forms to help provide this necessary protection:
DermaFix Ferulic + C + E
DermaFix Ferulic + C + E offers powerful antioxidant protection against the ravages of the sun and free radicals we expose our skins to on a daily basis. This serum offers up to 72 hours of protection by strengthening the skins own natural protective capabilities. Use this every morning for optimum protection against damaging UV radiation.
DermaFix Vitamin C Serum
DermaFix Vitamin C Serum combines the power of vitamin C and yarrow for a super soothing anti-inflammatory benefit, making it the perfect addition to your skincare routine post-sun exposure.
DermaFix ACC Vitamin C
With UV exposure comes the breakdown of collagen and elastin within the skin. DermaFix ACC Vitamin C promotes the synthesis of collagen type I and II within the fibroblasts, encouraging wound healing and DNA repair.
Should it happen that you have experienced a sunburn, the need to offer your skin some relief is very necessary. Topical application of DermaFix HydraSooth SOS (R465.00) provides essential relief, calming inflammation whilst soothing redness and irritation. The inclusion of watermelon fruit extract and Vitamin E helps to repair and restore the skin, easing pain and discomfort whilst promoting skin healing.
Prevention is always better than cure, an important fact to remember when it comes to the long-term health of the skin. Always ensure to apply DermaFix DermaShield SPF40 or SPF50 (R220 – R400)High UVA/UVB/HEV light protection sunscreen. This is essential for daily use and should be reapplied regularly when enjoying prolonged exposure to the sun.
