How to Get Your Skin Summer Ready

How to Get Your Skin Summer Ready

What is there not to love about summer?!  It makes us feel soo good to be out of doors soaking up a few rays!  Extra daylight, a multitude of colors, sweet smell of rain on the hot pavement, wind in our hair, it makes us feel connected to the Earth!

 Whether you enjoy lying in your hammock watching the clouds go by, planting veggies, paddle boarding on the open water or just daily coming and going, sun damage to our skin is real.  If you are lucky enough to live near the shore or you vacation there, add in the abrasive and reflective effects of sand, wind and salt water and our skin can look quite aged by Fall!  

Teens and young adults suffering from acne often turn to the drying effects of the sun to help clear up their skin.  When you are used to an oily complexion and breakouts getting a tanned face can feel good temporarily.  As we now know, such thinking and practice is not only counterproductive, but dangerous!   The temporary “dry” you may experience leads to permanent damage at the cellular level, setting you up for premature aging and the potential for skin cancer!  The top layer of skin is designed to be a barrier to keep bacteria out and moisture in.  When that layer is damaged more oil is produced as a protective measure, the dead skin clogs your pores and eventually your breakout is worse, and you’ve put yourself at risk for skin cancer. 

Many of us seek out a tan as cosmetically it makes us feel like we look better.  Or we get caught up in being outside  and just don’t take the time to take precautions.   Fall usually gives us a good look at the damage we’ve done with splotchy, uneven skin tone, dry, rough, leathery looking and feeling skin, a few new brown patches or freckles we didn’t have before and a few more fine lines! 

It doesn’t have to be this way!  It only takes mere minutes a day to protect and nourish your skin and keep that healthy glow all summer!  The ingredients used in your skincare products do make a difference!   Adding all kinds of unnatural ingredients just pollute our cells further!  That’s why V10Plus uses ingredients from nature in a water-based formula!   We have the perfect skin care to get you through summer with healthy, glowing skin! 

Start each day by treating any damage already there with our Licorice Serum!  Made for the root and stalk of a plant in the pea family, Licorice is anti-inflammatory, and calms irritated and inflamed skin.  One small drop spread evenly across your face each day, before you apply your sunblock is all it takes! 

Next protect your face, neck, and chest each day with our Sunblock!  You will be so hooked; you will never want to go back to traditional sunblock!  V10Plus sunblock gives you 800 minutes of protection with no greasy feel, no white residue, only a clean, powdery finish! Using Vitamin C and E it helps to prevent hyperpigmentation, fights free radicals and whitens and brightens. Plus, the red tube is super sexy!

Get rested up for tomorrow’s adventures with our Okinawa Deep Sea Mask.  This gel mask penetrates your skin while you sleep with minerals from the beautiful, deep sea water off the southern tip of Japan, along with seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid your skin will be hydrated and revitalized in the morning. 

So enjoy every last minute of summer, but do so wisely!  We can help you!
