We’ve all probably been resistant to using sunscreen or any form of sun protection. Usually, it feels greasy (unless you’re using our lightweight moisturizing SPF mist), doesn’t do anything to immediately improve your appearance like makeup, and is yet another step your mother’s been annoying you about that you’d much rather skip out on. While it’s ok to say no when she nags you again about getting married or growing your hair out, you better listen to her wise words about protecting your skin. We can’t warn you enough about the dangers of sun damage and the various forms of fatal skin cancer it can cause.
Don’t fret too much yet if you’ve already had too much fun in the sun. We’ve formulated a collection of products that not only help lessen signs of aging in your skin caused by UV light exposure but also actively works to fight against skin cancer. This is all thanks to one powerful ingredient: EGCG. We’ve highlighted the health benefits of green tea before, but together we’re deep diving into the antioxidant EGCG that makes it such a prized skincare gem.
The sun keeps us warm and its appearance in the sky means a fun beach day. So why is the sun getting such a bad rap? What you’re not able to see are the sun’s invisible ultraviolet A and B rays that cause early skin aging like wrinkles, dark sun spots, fine lines, crow’s feet, and of course more serious health problems like skin cancers.
If you’re bemoaning the new wrinkles on your forehead, the good news is that you can help fade their appearance with retinol. When applied topically, retinol has a whole host of impressive anti-aging benefits by helping to boost your skin’s elasticity and collagen production. Combine it with the other ultra-nourishing ingredients in our natural anti-aging products and you’ll have a powerhouse product for more toned and supple skin. The only thing is that it’s not safe against the sun, and should be used during the nighttime only.
