Question:  I'm an active/outdoorsy person and always out in the sun but I do use sunscreen. What skincare would you recommend?

 

Answer:  Sun exposure can be very challenging for skin health. To offset some of the exposure I would first start with a very hydrating and soothing cleanser like our Olive Oil Cleanser for morning and evening.  I would also recommend our ALA (or alpha lipoic acid).  Its a great antioxidant that can help reduce redness and inflammation in the skin and should be used morning and evening time followed by your day or night cream.  As well as Idebenone Cream/SerumEster C and Copper Peptide Serum.

As well as wearing a wide brimmed hat when outside (or sunlight exposure inside like a car or patio) and clothing that covers as much skin as possible (i.e. long sleeve shirt, jackets, pants, leggings, long skirts/dresses) helps to minimize prolonged/excessive exposure of the sun on your skin.
