PEAS Skincare Regimen for Sun Damage

14 Apr

Heaven-on-Earth-sun-damage-productsIf you’re an avid sun and tan worshipper—I know I was for many years—let me tell you that sun care and skincare go hand-in-hand. Living in Hawaii taught me first hand the damages of sun bathing. Not to mention, Aspen’s high altitude also makes sunburn and damage a real threat.

Sun damage can cause sun spots, wrinkles, dry skin and other issues, so I’m excited to share with you a skincare regimen that will restore and protect your skin. I call it PEAS! PEAS stands for:  Pigment Control, Exfoliation, Antioxidants, and Sun Protection. Apply my PEAS skincare regimen to your daily routine to improve your skin’s health and appearance for now and for later.

Pigment Control

Hyperpigmentation is a usually harmless condition where there is an overproduction of melanin in the skin, which creates patches that are darker than the areas around them. It is a common condition most often caused by too much sun exposure and one that is difficult to treat but can be lightened with the right product.

Pila Recommends: Intraceuticals Opulence Daily Serum

Illuminate, brighten and tighten your skin with this serum. It delivers powerful brightening ingredients and hydration, making it the perfect product to help correct hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tones.

Exfoliation

Exfoliation is just a fancy word for removing the top layer of  dead skin cells. This step is included in most spa facials, but it’s important to do at home too because it brings the new and radiant skin to the surface.

Pila Recommends: Skin Script 2% Retinol Exfoliating Scrub/Mask

Resurface your skin with this exfoliant to bring out its natural radiant glow. This product also lightens skin discolorations, slows the production of melanin and brightens to promote a clear and healthy skin tone.

Antioxidants

Your skin needs key nutrients just like the rest of your body, so use a product with antioxidants to provide the nourishment it needs. Antioxidants limit the production of free radicals to protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging.

Pila Recommends: Skin Script Vitamin C and Green Tea Serum

This serum contains Vitamin C, one of the most powerful antioxidants out there, as well as Green Tea, another great antioxidant. I suggest that everyone have at least one product in their everyday routine that contains Vitamin C since it is so strong at fighting against free radicals.

Sun protection

Don’t get me wrong—getting your daily dose of sun is great, but make sure to put on a sunscreen every day to best protect your skin from getting damaged in the first place.

Pila Recommends: Brush on Block

This mineral powder contains 30 SPF that applies easily either before or after makeup. It also contains Honeysuckle, which is considered an excellent anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory and is right up there with green tea and chamomile. It has a lot of Vitamin C, too, which is great for stimulating collagen synthesis in the skin. The sun breaks down or “cooks” collagen, so the fact that this product can rebuild it is a high point.
