Sunshine creates a sense of confidence within us. Complexions become more radiant naturally and many women choose to alter their make-up regime as they feel less is more. Summer sun definitely boosts skin positivity and as summer approaches, now is a great time to start prepping skin.
How to Prep Skin for Healthy Skin this summer
Skin needs protection. Protection from overexposure to sun, UV rays and other external stressors such as pollution. The best protection from sun damage is sun protection (preferably SPF30 or over). Protection from UV rays and external stressors also require antioxidants.
Antioxidants are molecules essential for skin care as they help prevent skin cell damage caused by free radicals. They stop a chain reaction which can lead to damage of vital molecules in the skin. Once a free radical is formed a destructive chain reaction could start. Free radicals cause dryness and increases fine lines and wrinkles on the epidermis. The damage to cellular components is dangerous, and in order to prevent this from occurring, the body uses antioxidants.
