Skin Protection 101

Glowing, youthful skin… we all want it, yet sometimes it can feel so elusive.

When it comes to skin, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Taking steps to protect your skin now cannot be overemphasized. AND it doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming.

3 Tips to Protect Your Skin This Summer

#1 Wear sunscreen!

We know it’s an obvious recommendation, but it’s also so easy to forget. Wearing sunscreen and protecting your skin from UV is key for skin health. Prolonged UV exposure accelerates skin aging and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, in addition to being a huge risk factor for various skin cancers.

Chemical and physical sunscreens are both effective in blocking UV light. Reapply sunscreen often, wear clothing that blocks sun exposure, and spend plenty of time in the shade to maintain your radiant glow!

When choosing a sunscreen, make sure to look for ones that are broad spectrum and at least SPF 30. Some of our favourite vegan, cruelty-free sunscreens include Supergoop! and Coola.

#2 Top Up Tonic

Vitamin C, E, and probiotics are skin-friendly ingredients in Top Up Tonic that are working in the background to keep your skin clear and vibrant. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants, which reduces damage from exposure to environmental pollutants and UV-radiation. Antioxidants have an anti-aging effect on the skin, keeping you looking hot as hell.

Vitamin C also plays a key role in the formation of collagen, which improves skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Probiotics have also been shown to reduce inflammation and improve acne.

#3 Diet & H2O

Food impacts every facet of our health, and skin is no exception! Eating whole foods and minimizing processed foods, sugar and alcohol plays a huge role in achieving glowing skin.

Hydration is the unsung hero for healthy skin! Make sure you’re drinking 2-3L of water per day. If you’re having trouble drinking enough water, try adding lemons, cucumbers or mint to add some flavour.

Enjoy the summer, support your health from the inside out and live life on top!
