This summer, avoid retinol and harsh or abrasive exfoliants. In fact, avoid exfoliants and acidic face washes completely if you can do so. Exfoliation strips away the extra layer of dead skin cells that can serve to shield your skin from harmful rays. If you feel that your skin is not vibrant enough without the aid of exfoliants, replace your regular foundation with an extra dewey or moisturizing one instead. Be sure your foundation includes a high SPF to fight the harsh ultraviolet rays.
When looking at summer skincare, I prefer something like Revercel Triple Duty Sunscreen, a multipurpose sunscreen. Revercel Triple Duty also works as a sheer skin tint with peptide-powered anti-aging ingredients. This SPF 45 sunscreen protects the skin against sun damage and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Revercel’s anti-aging complex is said to repair DNA damage, stimulate collagen production and control the balance of cytokines to delay the effects of premature aging.
I have not yet noticed any permanent skin tone restoring effect due to this sunscreen, but it works effectively as my summer sunscreen and skin tint. With the summer so hot and humid, I always prefer to keep my makeup to a minimum. The sheer tint works well enough to double as my foundation and sunscreen. And the anti-aging properties are always a plus even if it’s not something I’m worried about at the moment. It feels good to know that what I am wearing for aesthetics is not only protecting my skin, but potentially repairing it as well.
