Summer Sun Protection

Taking in the sun can be so much fun, but taking precautions is a must! Too much sun can be dangerous for our skin. Every May is Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and we have a few standout SPF products, in addition to after-sun treatments, to protect and nourish your skin as we start spending more time in the sun. 

Peptide-Rich Defense is a must-have for your summer skincare routine. This power-packed hydrator and skin protector provides broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen to help prevent sun damage and reverse signs of aging. The peptide-enriched formula gives you the appearance of fewer lines and wrinkles, while Vitamin E adds moisture and nourishment to dehydrated skin. Peptide-Rich Defense SPF 50 is the highest SPF that COSMEDIX offers. Pro tip—reapply at least twice during the day when spending long amounts of time in direct sunlight.

You can also fight off harmful UV rays with the help of Hydrate+ moisturizing sunscreen. This SPF 17 moisturizer includes ingredients that help increase elasticity and boost radiance for younger-looking skin. While it works to protect you from future sun damage, the antioxidants in its formula also fight age-accelerating free radicals. 

From the first time you hear the name C.P.R. Skin Recovery Serum, you know that help is on the way to soothe and relieve your skin. If you have sensitive skin that has been irritated by the sun, C.P.R. helps calm the skin, diminishing the look of redness and providing protection from free radical damage. When sunburn occurs, C.P.R. helps reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process.

Rescue Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask is another customer favorite we recommend for post-sun exposure that’s packed with powerful antioxidants that nourish and soothe your skin to give you a healthy-looking glow. Just like C.P.R., Rescue is ideal for helping relieve sunburned skin and expediting your healing process. Rescue can also be used as an ultra-hydrating overnight mask to soothe and comfort damaged skin.

The key to healthy skin is creating a regimen that keeps your skin hydrated and protected during the hottest months of the year. Be mindful of how much sun time you take in this summer so you can maintain your youthful, healthy-looking complexion!
