Keep Your Skin Healthy and Protected This Summer with Proper Home Skincare

There is nothing quite like Summertime in Sonoma County. The longer days and inviting sunshine make enjoying the great outdoors irresistible. But these sunny days can have some major damaging effects on your skin if you aren’t careful. 

Without proper care, increased exposure to the sun and other environmental hazards will lead to serious skin damage. The UV rays from the sun injury your skin tissue, resulting in accelerated signs of aging.

Common Signs of Sun Damage on Skin:

  • Sunburns
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Dry, itchy, flaking or peeling skin
  • Discoloration and uneven pigmentation

Full-coverage clothing and shade accessories will be your first line of defense from harmful UV rays, but this still leaves your face vulnerable to the sun’s damaging effects.

So what can you do to protect your skin from sun damage and other summer skin stressors? 

Luckily, the answer doesn’t involve quarantining in a dark room all summer. To get through the summer with healthy, glowing skin, all you need are the right products and a diligent skincare routine!
