With the arrival of the summer months, it’s crucial to equip ourselves with the knowledge to shield our skin from the potentially harmful effects of sun exposure. Understanding how to effectively address and prevent sun damage and photoaging is the key to maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion all year round.
Year-Round Sunscreen Use
Forget the myth that sun damage is just important in the summertime. Whether you’re soaking up rays indoors or outdoors, consistency is key for year-round sunscreen application. iS Clinical sunscreens provide powerful protection against UVA/UVB rays, the primary culprits for skin damage.
iS Clinical sunscreens are not just about conventional protection; these products go beyond by offering additional benefits supported by clinical studies. All iS Clinical sunscreens have broad-spectrum coverage, an SPF of at least 30, and protection against pollution and blue light, they are strengthened with antioxidants and extremozymes to not only protect your skin, but also your DNA.
And did I mention that iS Clincial sunscreens can be used as moisturisers as well?
Understanding Sun-Induced Skin Damage
Excessive sun exposure induces free radical damage, with solar rays bombarding the skin with energy particles known as photons. This process triggers inflammation, negatively impacting various skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Astonishingly, just one day of excessive sun exposure can undo months of dedicated skincare and professional treatments.
iS Clinical products are designed and formulated to correct and repair sun-induced damage, particularly addressing your DNA and the way it communicated to your cells.
Addressing Photo-damage with iS Clinical
Sun exposure stands as the primary trigger for hyperpigmentation. iS Clinical’s Brightening Duo targets all five steps of pigment formation, offering around-the-clock pigment management. These products are recommended for continual use, with additional options including Super Serum Advance+, Pro-Heal Serum Advanced+, and GeneXC Serum.
Age-Defying Inflammation Reduction
Pro-Heal Serum Advance+ aids in reducing inflammation, crucial for countering the ongoing process of aging caused by UVA damage. This product focuses on maintaining healthy collagen production, an essential aspect of the wound healing process that counters wrinkles induced by sun damage.
Advanced DNA Repair
GeneXC Serum, with its high antioxidant levels and DNA-protective extremozymes, is a powerhouse in treating photoaging. When combined with Poly-Vitamin Serum, it becomes a potent remedy for damaged skin texture.
Barrier Damage and Acne in Summertime
Aside from sun exposure, summertime habits like air conditioning and chlorine in pools contribute to barrier damage. iS Clinical recommendations to rebuild a damaged barrier after being exposed to these elements includes Brightening Duo, Super Serum Advance+, Pro-Heal Advance+, GeneXC Serum, Active Peel System, and Retinol+ Emulsion 0.3 & 0.1.
Acne tends to worsen in summer, and iS Clinical addresses this by recommending a balanced approach to hydration and moisture. Products like Cleansing Complex, Active Serum,, Pro-Heal Serum Advance+, Active Peel System, Retinol+ Emulsion 0.3 & 1.0, Hydra-Cool Serum, Moisturizing Complex, and Eclipse are perfectly tailored for acne-prone skin.
As summer concludes, transitioning to products like Brightening Complex becomes essential for managing acne and pigmentation after sun exposure. Retinol+ Emulsion 0.3 & 1.0 offers unique benefits, including repairing the dermal-epidermal junction, essential for antiaging.
iS Pro Tip: For advanced treatment of photo-aged skin post-summer, iS Clinical Prodigy Peel Systems stand out by not only exfoliating but are designed to preserve healthy skin while only targeting the dead skin, ensuring a rejuvenated and regenerated result.
