The Ultimate Guide to Skincare Before, During, and After Sun Exposure

As summer approaches, more and more of us are heading out to enjoy the lovely warm weather. Before you get out there, though, make sure you have your summertime skincare essentials! Sun exposure can both cause and worsen many skin issues, from aging, to hyperpigmentation, to dryness, and sensitivity. Here’s how to adjust your routine to keep your skin protected before, during, and after sun exposure.

Before Sun Exposure: Gentle Cleansing

Preparing your skin for sun exposure starts with a gentle and effective cleansing routine. Avoid using harsh, acidic products like P50, retinol, and vitamin C before heading out into the sun, as they can cause irritation and additional damage under the sun.

Instead, opt for gentle cleansers such as the Lait cleansers from Biologique Recherche. These products are designed to cleanse without irritating your skin, leaving it soft and smooth. A great option for all skin types that leaves your skin looking bright is Lait VIP O2. By starting with a gentle cleanser, you ensure your skin barrier remains intact and ready to face the day.

During Sun Exposure: Maximum Protection

When spending time in the sun, the most crucial step is to protect your skin with a high-quality sunscreen. Here are some top recommendations:

Face Shield Classic SPF 50: This mineral sunscreen offers high protection with a slight tint, making it a perfect base for makeup. It blends seamlessly into your skin, providing a natural, flawless look while shielding you from harmful UV rays.

Its hydrating and antioxidant-rich formula makes it a great fit for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Daily Veil SPF 30: Lightweight and hydrating, this sunscreen is ideal for those who prefer a non-greasy feel. It provides broad-spectrum protection while keeping your skin moisturized throughout the day.

It also doubles as a primer for seamless makeup application!

Colorescience Lip Shine and Color Balm SPF 35: Often overlooked, your lips also need sun protection. These products not only shield your lips from the sun but also offer gentle exfoliation and hydration, keeping them soft and smooth while adding a subtle pop of color.

On top of providing sun protection, peptides and hyaluronic acid work together to keep your lips looking healthy, hydrated, and plump.

Remember, the key to effective sun protection is consistency. Reapply your sunscreen every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.

After Sun Exposure: Cooling and Repair

After a day in the sun, your skin needs some extra TLC to recover and rejuvenate. Start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove any residual sunscreen, sweat, and impurities without irritating your skin.

To soothe and cool your skin, apply the Cryo De-Puffing Facial Mask. This convenient sheet mask provides an immediate cooling effect, reducing irritation and puffiness. It’s the perfect way to calm your skin after exposure to the sun’s harsh rays.

Finally, hydrate and repair your skin overnight with a nourishing night cream. Repair Night Cream NAC Y2 is an excellent choice. It hydrates deeply and aids in skin recovery, helping to repair any damage and rejuvenate your complexion overnight.

Caring for your skin before, during, and after sun exposure is essential for maintaining its health and beauty. By following these steps and using the recommended products, you can enjoy your time in the sun while keeping your skin protected, nourished, and radiant. Always remember, sun protection is not just a summer activity but a year-round commitment to your skin’s wellbeing.
