How to take care of your skin in summer? 5 tips from Dr. Artiano!
Now that the warm season is finally here, protecting the skin from UV rays is essential to prevent cellular aging and keep the skin young and healthy.
First of all, let us say that there are 2 types of UV rays: UVA and UVB.
UVA rays are the main culprits of cellular aging, especially skin spots; they penetrate deeper into the dermis and account for about 95% of UV rays.
In contrast, UVB rays act at the surface level of the skin, stimulating melanin and thus determining the intensity of the tan.
We asked Dr. Artiano, a well-known surgeon leading Stanartis Research, how to take care of skin in summer!
These are the 5 valuable tips he left us with!
1. Prepare your skin with beta-carotene supplements
Assume the skin supplements before sun exposure helps prevent sunburn, prevents photoaging and the appearance of sunspots, and keeps skin healthy and hydrated to ensure you have an even and long-lasting tan.
To be fully effective, these supplements should be taken 7 days before going into the sun, keeping consumption for the summer period, up to the following week last exposure. Not all tanning supplements are the same, however: what makes the difference is mainly the percentage of active ingredients contained in each operculum (or tablet).
Certainly, among the most effective ingredients for promoting a tan is the beta-carotene, A natural substance that can stimulate melanin production., making it easier and quicker to achieve the typical summer browning that is so coveted!
Alsocopper is featured: this mineral plays a central role in the process of melanin synthesis, facilitating normal pigmentation and preventing sunspots.
The skin supplement Golden Skin, contains both of these elements. It has strong antioxidant power, counteracting free radicals and promoting a more intense and long-lasting tan.
2. Protect your face from the sun's rays: even in the city, sunscreen is a must!
You don't have to be at the beach, lake or mountains to be a victim of sun damage. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, even Summer in the city requires sunscreen.
During the first few suns, we recommend a high sunscreen, such as a SPF 50+, that can create an effective barrier against UV rays. If you already have a tan*, you can opt for medium-high protection, never going below a SPF 25+.
The formulations of the solar Stanartis are particularly effective and pleasant to wear, plus they have the Chromabright® molecule, which has scientifically proven action against the appearance of blemishes. Based on 3-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, they act as a powerful moisturizer, anti-dryness and anti-dark spot, with a fresh, luminous, non-greasy finish - also ideal under makeup.
3. Remember to apply sunscreen several times a day.
We know, at the beach or poolside, the last thing you want to think about is duties, but reapplying sunscreen is a must after a couple of hours, following a dip in the water or a refreshing shower.In fact, sweat and water make the worn SPF less effective. - and put us at risk of annoying irritation or sunburn. So arm yourself with patience, set an alarm on your phone and slather on sunscreen at least every 2 to 3 hours. By now, sunscreens have a light and pleasant consistency, there are sprays, cream, oil and sun milk products: there really is no more excuse for not finding the ideal formulation for us.If you are planning to get your fill of sun this summer, we recommend that you buy the Kit Golden Skin, the best Stanartis sunscreens, with the handy clutch bag to slip into your beach bag!
Keep an eye on the ingredients: lots of natural active ingredients to regenerate your skin and make it super soft even under the sun, and the very useful Chromabright® to protect your skin from sunspots.
4. Choose the timing of your tan.
Incurring sunburn and redness is easier when the sun's rays are more aggressive: Renunciation of direct sun exposure during the hottest hours of the day. Let's say between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
This will help you not to dehydrate the skin, gradually accustom it to sun exposure, without risking sunburn and burns: very harmful to the skin, as well as causing anti-aesthetic peeling of the skin.
5. Restores skin balance and hydration.
Under the sun refresh the skin and restore its natural balance with refreshing sun water.
