At Home Remedies For A Minor Sunburn

fybc 6:1:17There is nothing worse than a sunburn. Not only are they uncomfortable but they can cause damage to surface of your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, health is one of our primary cares, which is why we encourage sunless tanning as an alternative to laying out in the sun. That being said, sunburns happen! Here are a few at home remedies you can use to care for your sunburns this summer.

  • Take cold showers or baths frequently
  • With a cool washcloth, apply lotions like aloe vera or chamomile to the burned area. Hydrocortisone Cream may also help relieve both the pain and swelling often associated with a sunburn.
  • If your sunburn has reached its peeling phase, there is little you can do to stop it. Hydrate the affected areas of your skin with lotion or coconut oil multiple times a day to kick start the healing process.

It is important to ease back into the sun after a burn. Give your skin the chance to fully recover and heal before exposing it to direct sunlight. Looking tan is such a confidence booster, but there are ways to get color without compromising your skin. If you have never had a spray tan or are looking to try it, feel free to give us a call. If you are ready to rock a sunkissed glow, book your appointment online today.

Summer Skin Care Essentials

summer essentialsTaking care of your skin is essential, especially here in Colorado since the climate can be harsh. Those of you who stay on top of skin care…keep it up, just be sure you are not taking it too far! Sure, your intentions are good… but be sure you really know what you are doing! Here are three common mistakes to be weary of:

  1. Face Oil. If oils are a part of your skin care regimen remember that it should be applied at the end of your skin care routine. Oil does not allow anything to permeate the skin once it is on! So, in order for your other skincare products to work, save the oil for last.  There is a way for all your products to do their job, you just have to get precise with the application order.
  2. Over-cleansing. Yes, cleaning your face is important, but make sure you are not over cleansing. Over cleaning your face depletes your skin removes or stops your skin from producing essential oils and other nutrients. If you are stripping your skin to the point where your face is drying out, you are increasing your risk for breakouts. One good clean a day is enough.
  3. Assuming your foundation has the right amount of SPF. It is true that most foundations these days have a degree of SPF in their formulas however, it is not enough to protect your skin harmful sun rays! Remember that your foundation most likely contains SPF 15 or 20 in, whereas regular sunblock contains SPF 50! Do not just rely on our foundation, take the all the extra precautions.

If you struggle with acne or frequent breakouts, it is time to reevaluate your diet. There are certain foods that are known to trigger or contribute to stubborn acne but there are also foods that can clear skin by fighting bacteria. Feel confident in your complexion this spring by eating your way to clear skin. Here are a skin clearing foods to incorporate into your diet.

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids. Basically what this is good for is skin strengthening. It will help keep wrinkles at bay and keep your skin looking more youthful. Keep in mind though, chia seeds are not a magical answer to wrinkle free skin.

Flaxseed or Fish:  The consumption of omega-3 fatty acids which are found in fish, walnuts, and flaxseed can help tame inflammation and improve acne breakouts

Strawberries: Eating foods high in vitamin-C are good for collagen boosting. This will keep your face looking plump and young.

The 411 On Sunscreen!

fybc g.jpg

 

The key to keeping your skin looking youthful and fresh depends on how well you treat it. In order to have skin that still looks radiant in 15 years, you must take the necessary steps to ensure its health.  Exposing your skin to the sun is just a part of life. However, you can control how frequently and directly you allow UV rays. As warmer weather creeps closer, it is time to start thinking about ways to protect your skin. Protect your skin today by using a combination of sunscreen and sunblock as the sun heats up.

Which To Choose: Sunscreen vs Sunblock

Sunscreen, the chemical kind, penetrates the skin and absorbs the UVA rays before they can reach and cause damage to your dermal layer. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the ingredients responsible for deflecting harmful UV rays before they reach the protective outer epidermis layer of your skin.

Sunblock, the physical kind, contains both organic and non-organic ingredients that essentially stay on top of the skin and act as a barrier between the rays and the outer layer of the skin. Buy a sunblock with ingredients like octyl methoxycinnamate, octyl salicylate, and octocrylene.

The major difference between the two is that sunblocks are formulated to shield against UVB rays, while sunscreens protect against UVA. Luckily, these days you can find formulas that contain both.

Take the necessary steps to ensure you feel and look your best, always. If you have questions or concerns about your skin, give us a call today or book an appointment with one of our skincare professionals. Loving the skin you’re in starts with how well you care for it.
