If you’ve been spending time in the sun this summer to achieve a bronze, kissed-by-the-sun look, then you’re most likely over-exposing your skin to UVA and UVB rays. But, did you know there is a safer way to get a summer glow? You don’t have to allow the sun to be the culprit that’s aging your skin more quickly. With Colorescience Pro Minerals and Jan Marini Sun Care products, you’ll have a beautiful, healthy bronze, without the damaging effects of the sun.
There are 3 main products that we recommend for a healthy tan!
1. Colorescience Pro Illuminating Serum – in Bronze or Champagne Kiss: This radiance-boosting formula, rich in peptides, antioxidants, and hydrating hyaluronic acid provides a healthy, luminous base. Both Bronze and Champagne Kiss work beautifully on their own, but you can also give your skin a hint of bronze and an illuminating glow by blending the two together.
2. Jan Marini Tinted SPF 30 Antioxidant Block: This skin-friendly iron oxide mineral formula creates a sun-kissed look by adding a warm neutral shade to the skin that compliments virtually any skin tone. The waterproof formula ensures continuous coverage for extended exposure to the sun’s rays. Compared to other sunscreens, the Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant provides a lasting oil-free, matte finish, leaving your skin with a soft, silky, conditioned effect.
3. Jan Marini Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner: This product allows you to enjoy an attractive, glowing tan without over-exposing your skin to the damaging effects of the environment. Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner is composed of an amino acid that interacts with the skin’s proteins to activate a natural, long-lasting color change without dying your skin. This means your skin won’t appear orange because the color will adjust to your specific skin type to match its tone and coloration.
Remember to minimize your sun time!
Minimize your time in the sun to maximize your protection against aging. Exposure to the sun not only causes harmful damage to your skin, such as burns, wrinkles, and fine lines, but also enlarges your pores. If you’re noticing your pores getting larger, you can learn how to reduce the size of your pores and get that flawless look you desire.
Leslie Kasanoff says
I agree that over-exposure can be a problem. However, our bodies make Vitamin D (which is really a hormone, not a vitamin) from skin exposure to the sun. If one reads the literature, they will find there is little-to-no evidence to suggest that 5-15 minutes per day; enough to make the Vitamin D your body needs and get the glowing look, is harmful (unless your skin is so fair that you burn with that amount of exposure and amazingly, if it is, your body will make Vitamin D at a faster rate. So just adjust the exposure accordingly.)
Rates of Melanoma and other skin cancer increased over the past 20+ years when most sunscreens contained only UVA protection. It is now well-documented that most of this cancer is actually caused by UVB. SO basically, people were exposing themselves to far more sun than they previously could have with awful, sad and often deadly results.
There is also little evidence to suggest that supplementing Vitamin D by mouth helps health outcomes. . .It may (and does) raise Vitamin D levels in the bloodstream but that is not correlated with better health outcomes in terms of Osteoporosis and Immune System function (just 2 of Vitamin D’s many functions).
From a health perspective, small amounts of sun exposure are necessary and healthful.
