As the summer sun warms up, it's critical to remember the importance of using natural skincare products to help protect your skin from damaging UV rays. In addition to being a great source of Vitamin D, too much sun can also be detrimental to our skin if we do not take the necessary precautions, and do not use products to hydrate and protect our skin accordingly. See this Photoaging (Sun Damage) article by Yale Medicine for more information on sun damage. Now, let's first get into why you should choose natural skincare products for your summer skincare routine in the first place!

Why Use Natural Skincare Products in Your Summer Skincare Routine?

Using natural skincare products is an excellent way to protect your skin from sun damage. As well as being beneficial to your skin, natural products don't contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to not only your skin, but your overall health. Keeping your skin healthy and glowing is easy with natural products, which can also contain beneficial antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients! Additionally, they are more gentle on the skin, so you won't have to worry about skin irritation or other skin problems.

Another great benefit of using natural skincare products is that they are usually much more eco-friendly. It is common for chemical-based skincare products to contain ingredients that are harmful to the environment. On the other hand, plant-based skincare products are made with ingredients that are not harmful to the environment! Read up on our "Why Choose Natural Ingredients over Synthetic When It Comes To Skincare" blog for a more in depth read!

What Ingredients Help With Sun Damage?

Adding safe ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, niacinamide, and alpha hydroxy acids into your summer skincare routine can help with sun damage, minimize dark spots, and smooth wrinkles that may have been caused by sun damage. These ingredients work by stimulating the production of collagen, which helps to firm and smooth the skin. Additionally, they can help reduce inflammation and even out skin tone, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots.

Vitamin C - In addition to boosting collagen production, vitamin C can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. See "How Collagen Helps & Works For Your Skin" blog to get a more in depth understanding. In the meantime, check out our anti-aging, collagen building Renu Glow Serum with Vitamin C and Matrixyl 3000 for smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin!
AHAs - Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA's) help to gently exfoliate the skin, which can reduce sunspot visibility.
Retinol - This ingredient is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce signs of aging, including sun damage. Check out Renu Beauty Balm with plant-based Retinol in the form of Bakuchiol to help tighten skin elasticity, soften fine lines and even skin tone. Another popular product is our Renu Repair Eye Cream with retinol to treat fine lines, wrinkles around the eyes, dullness, dark spots, and dehydration.
Niacinamide - Reduces inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and redness caused from UV Rays. For the ultimate in skin nourishment and hydration, our Renu Night Cream with Niacinamide is designed to provide intense moisture, support collagen production and address hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage.
    Incorporating natural skincare products that use these superstar ingredients into your skincare routine can restore and protect the skin from further sun damage, among many other benefits when using natural skincare products.

      4 Steps For The Perfect Summer Skincare Routine

      Step 1:Cleanse

      Cleansing is so important for your skin, and will always be step one in your after- sun summer skincare routine! The Renu Purifying Gel Cleanser is gentle on your skin while effectively removing bacteria, pollutants and impurities. Keep in mind while its important to cleanse your skin after being out in the sun. This botanical formulation is designed to nourish and not dry out your skin.

      Step 2: Toner

      In addition to shrinking pores, toner helps restore the pH balance of the skin as well as refresh and protect it. Renu's Brightening & Resurfacing Toner has been specially formulated with a unique blend of plant-powered, fruit extracts and glycolic acid, which are gentle and effective in minimizing the appearance of pores by dissolving dead skin and other debris from the pores. The added benefits to this toner is that it is infused with skin-brightening botanicals that help balance and boost your complexion.

      Step 3: Treatments

      Weekly exfoliation and daily use of serums and eye cream are the perfect duos to treat your skin and to keep it healthy and refreshed! Don’t feel overwhelmed. Set aside a specific few days a week where you will incorporate the exfoliation, and apply your serum and eye cream daily.

      Exfoliating: Exfolating your face during the summer is vital! Exfoliating after being out in the sun all day will help remove dirt, makeup residue, sunscreens, and will help unclog your pores after a day of sweating in the summer heat. The Renu Hydra Whip Exfoliant is the perfect exfoliant. The gentle formula contains aloe, avocado, rosehip, and sweet almond oils to add hydration back into your skin. The crushed walnut shell powder helps to smooth your complexion and crêpe skin on neck and chest, all while gently unclogging pores.
      Serums: The next step is applying the Renu Luxury Face Oil that is packed with natural goodness! With its rich Omega fatty acid content, Renu Luxury Face oil will leave your skin looking smooth and healthy with a youthful, radiant glow! With 10 plant oils, essential nutrients and hyaluronic acid, our Luxury Face Oil actively brightens and increases collagen, which promotes healthy aging!

      Eye Cream: Additionally, it is also worthwhile to remember to treat your eyes! Sumer days can cause a work-out for your eyes, with harsh sun and squinting, exasburating wrinkles aroud the eyes.The Renu Repair Eye Cream will tackle fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, dark spots and dehydration around the delicate eye area. Our eye cream contains retinol, which stimulates the production of collagen, improves the tone and evens out the texture of the skin. In addition, it contains niacinamide, which reduces hyperpigmentation and smooths skin, along with Hyaluronic Acid to lock in the natural moisture around the under eye, so skin appears firm and evenly toned.

      Lips: Most people only think about protecting their skin from the sun, and can forget that protecting your lips is also incredibly important. We recommend using an organic lip balm such as our Organic Lip Balms with SPF-15. With flavors like coconut, strawberry lemonade, sweet citrus, iced pear, and our watermelon mint with Zinc protection, to keep your lips soft, protected, and ready for Summer! These little Sun-blockers are also great to apply to other area of the face when your favorite Sunblock isnt readily available!

      Step 4: Moisturize!

      Using a high quality moisturizer with healing plant extracts after a day in the sun, is so important when it comes to your skincare routine. Our Renu Pure Radiance Moisurizer is the perfect nutrient-rich option for a light weight moisturizer to rehydrate skin. In addition to offering moisturizing benefits, the Peptides in the formula improves collagen production, skin firmness, tone, and overall lifting. Renu Pure Radiance will leave your skin smooth, soft, hydrated, and glowing.

      Will You Be Incorporating Renu Naturals Into Your Summer Skincare Routine?

      To conclude, using clean, plant-based skincare products after spending time in the summer sun is essential for maintaining healthy skin and promoting overall well-being. You can ensure your skin stays nourished, hydrated, and protected throughout the summer months by incorporating natural ingredients and gentle formulations in your summer skincare routine such as those in our Renu products.
