15 Proven Ways to Undo the Sun Damage on Your Skin

15 Proven Ways to Undo the Sun Damage on Your Skin

Hello, summers! Now that we are done with the tedious and back-breaking task of packing up all our woolens and airing out all our summer wear, it’s time to brace ourselves and broach the elephant in the room, the scorching heat and intense sun. The one word that comes to our mind when we think of the sun is a frenemy. While the sun makes the world inhabitable and also gives us light and warmth, it also creates havoc on our skin. Excess exposure to direct sunlight causes various hazardous skin and health issues. Enter- Sunscreen, our superhero (or genie!) in a bottle. 

Some may argue that wearing sunscreen can be a hassle or that it’s only necessary on sunny days. But let me tell you, the sun’s rays don’t discriminate. They can penetrate through clouds and windows, and even on those overcast days, up to 80% of UV rays can still reach our skin, making your skin pay the price of neglect. Worry not! We got you covered. Here are some tips that can help you undo and reverse that skin damage.  

• Wear your SPF 

Ok! So we can not emphasize this enough. You may have heard this a gazillion times, and it may sound like a cliché. But, they are called clichés for a reason. Sunscreens are the most important thing to prevent any further sun damage. Daily application and re-application every few hours is the best way to ensure the overall health of your skin. 

• Use retinoids  

Using the Vitamin A derivative or its natural counterpart, bio-retinol is another effective way to reverse some of the damage, caused by the sun. Retinoids boost the cell regeneration rate, eliminating the dead and damaged surface cells, and replacing them with healthy ones.  

• Hydration 

Summers make us lose out on a lot of water, through sweat. The harsh summer heat leeches out, all the moisture from our skin, making it dehydrated and more susceptible to sun damage. Having your requisite 8-10 glasses of water a day is super essential to ward off sun damage.  

• Moisturize 

Moisturizing your skin regularly can help repair some of the damage caused by the sun. It helps keep your skin looking supple, soft, and dewy. 

• Exfoliate 

Exfoliating a minimum of once a week can help to remove the dead skin cells and also promote cell turnover, which can help to reduce the appearance of sun damage. 

• Vitamin C

Vitamin C can help to perk up the dullness of your skin and also reduce tanning, caused by the sun. Using a good Vitamin C serum on your skin can help reduce the appearance of the sun on your skin.  

• Wear a hat 

Wearing a hat can help to protect your face and scalp from the harmful rays of the sun and keep you looking stylish (*wink, wink*). 

• Eat your colors 

Eating a diet with lots of colorful fruits and vegetables helps to protect your skin from further sun damage. How, you ask? Fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, that help reverse the sun damage on your skin.  

• Use a face mask 

Face masks can help to hydrate and nourish your skin, which can help to reverse some of the damage caused by the sun. 

• Get enough sleep 

Getting enough sleep can help reduce the inflammation in your body, which can help to reduce the appearance of sun damage. It’s called beauty sleep for a reason.  

• Use a body scrub 

Using a body scrub regularly can help exfoliate all the layered-up dead skin cells from your body and it can also promote cell turnover, which helps reduce the appearance of sun damage. 

• Get a facial 

Facials can help deep-cleanse your skin and promote cell turnover, which can help to reverse some of the damage done by the sun. Say no to sun tan. Hello, fresh, glowing, and healthy-looking skin! 

• Use a body lotion 

Using a body lotion helps infuse hydration and nutrients back into your skin, which can help to reverse some of the harm caused by the sun. 

• Wear sunglasses 

Sunglasses can help to protect your eyes and the delicate skin around them from the sun’s harmful rays. The lesser you cringe from the harsh light, the smoother your skin.  

• Stay out of the sun  

Last but not least, the ultimate power move to shield yourself from drastic sun damage is to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Stay smart!  

Excess exposure to the UVA and UVB rays of the sun can cause sunburns, tanning, premature signs of aging, and some grave health risks like skin cancer. UV rays can cause damage to the DNA in our skin cells, leading to mutations that can eventually result in skin cancer. Using a good sunscreen lotion is one of the safest ways to avoid long-term side effects from the sun. At Jovees Herbals, we have a wide range of Sunscreen lotions to suit and meet, all your various skin requirements and needs. From sunscreen lotions to sunscreen gels, from SPF added in lip balms to infusing SPF in lotions, that protect your skin from the harmful blue light from the screens, we have it all.

They help fortify your skin by protecting it and creating a shield against the harmful effects of the sun.  

So, whether you’re soaking up some rays at the beach with a frozen daiquiri in hand, going out for a  quick jog, or simply strolling down the market, or window shopping, don’t forget to slather on that sunscreen. Your skin will thank you for it, and you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of healthy, glowing skin.
