Best Products and Ingredients to Repair Sun Damaged Skin
Posted by Pevonia Marketing on 22nd Jul 2022
It is time to show your skin forgiveness for past bad behavior! Rather than throwing in the towel, you can repair sun damaged skin with properly formulated natural skin care products that feature high impact ingredients. Beyond aggressive peels or harsh treatments, skin-renewing powerhouses like Retinol, Vitamin C, Peptides, Stem Cells and Caviar can restore sun damaged skin without unnecessary irritation. What better way to show your skin you are sorry?
Products for Sun Damaged Skin
So you want to reverse sun damaged skin and don’t know where to start? First off, skip the self-judgment. Feeling bad about neglecting your skin and the damage that is already done doesn’t help you achieve your beauty goals. Now, with that out of the way, you can re-channel that energy and get to work reclaiming a smoother, more youthful appearance. It is true that some sun damaged skin will need a series of professional Pevonia treatments, while severely damaged skin will need medical intervention. But, most others will see striking improvement through consistent use of a complete skin care regimen. We’re sorry, but a standard face wash and natural face moisturizer alone won’t “move the needle.” To effect real change, your daily routine needs to include a natural skin cleanser, toner, serum and skin care cream tailored to your skin’s specific needs.
The gold standard for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing are products with Retinol. This single ingredient has multiple actions to counteract processes that accelerate signs of aging and sun damage. It smoothes wrinkles and rough skin texture while strengthening elasticity and promoting an even, radiant glow. It achieves this by stimulating cell turnover, enhancing moisture retention and normalizing pigmentation. If you have experienced irritation from Retinoids or other Vitamin A-based formulations, rest assured that Pevonia uses specially formulated, stabilized Micro-Retinol to overcome side effects commonly seen with tretinoin or other Retinols. The Micro-Retinol Essential Collection is ideal for all skin types, except those who are hypersensitive or have inflamed acne.
Just a few tips on how best to use it:
• If this is your first encounter with Retinol or you had some issues previously, consider starting off every other day, working up to daily application so your skin can gradually adjust. A little goes a long way. So, easy does it when applying, and remember to stay ¼” away from the lash line. Bonus: Your products will last longer!
• Avoid sun exposure when possible as your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight.
• Sunscreen use is an absolute must when using Retinol to protect against UV damage.
• Use serums and moisturizers with Retinol in the evening.
Antioxidants are essential for added protection against free radical damage triggered by sun exposure. After Vitamin A, Vitamin C tops the list! Unfortunately, many Vitamin C-based products use L-Ascorbic Acid, which can trigger redness and irritation. Pevonia uses skin-friendly MAP C in the C Complexe with Oxyzomes as it is suitable for all skin types. Got hyperpigmentation as a result of sun damage? You can find MAP C plus deeply penetrating fat-soluble THDA (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate), Licorice, and more in our Lumablanc Cream to effectively treat discoloration and dark spots for a more even skin tone. Another way to show your skin you care is with Vitamin E and Green Tea. These antioxidant-rich actives are favorites of skincare enthusiasts as they provide free radical protection and work together to calm redness and combat dryness commonly seen with sun damage.
Restore Sun Damaged Skin
Sensitive skin types seeking products for sun damaged skin will fare best with formulas featuring Peptides, Stem Cells and Caviar. There are multiple types of Peptides in Pevonia skin care, each working uniquely to repair sun damaged skin. Palmitoyl Oligopeptides, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 Marine Collagen & Elastin Polypeptides, and Oligopeptide-68 deliver rejuvenating benefits for smoother, more even, tighter-looking moisturized skin.
For skin lacking vital energy, Argan and Comfrey Root Stem Cells infuse skin with plant power, reactivating your skin cells’ ability to normalize repair processes and increase moisture. They essentially remind your skin how to function like it did before the sun damage occurred. For best results, use the complete Stem Cells Plant Based Collection to help restore sun damaged skin from head to toe.
Pure Caviar helps overcome Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid depletion that results from sun overexposure. It also facilitates better oxygenation and cellular metabolism that become impaired due to age. Nutrient-rich with 19 vitamins, minerals and amino acids, it encourages optimal nutrition and regeneration. The natural foaming cleanser, toner, serum, skin care cream and eye cream in the Timeless Repair Collection are all enriched with this skin revitalizing active, working synergistically to counteract signs of sun damage and aging.
While resurfacing ingredients are excellent for sun damage repair, strengthening the skin barrier with a consistent routine that includes moisturizing natural skin care oils, sun protection and healthy lifestyle habits is equally important. Your skin will forgive you much faster for neglecting it if you make adequate sleep, water intake, a healthy diet and stress reduction a priority now. So, the next time you think you can skip your skincare routine, precious 7 hours, consuming ample water and nutrient-rich food, remember that your skin will suffer. Add in stress and your skin will show the world that you need to bump up your self-care. Just a little daily effort will quickly add up to a healthier, glowing complexion. Still not sure what to use or which collection is for you? You don’t have to figure it out on your own! Pevonia has knowledgeable estheticians on staff standing by to answer your questions and help you put together a routine that’s right for your skin and preferences.
