It is a given that you have to protect your skin as soon as the sun shines. Don't think that you tan faster by not applying sunscreen, because then you're only fooling yourself. Protection is key! Of course you want to enjoy radiant and healthy skin for as long as possible. Sunscreen is important for that. Still, bad sunburn is often a culprit in terms of even skin. A good sunscreen is important, but the right aftercare is just as important. In this blog you will learn how to cleanse your skin after a tanning session with the best toners and oils from More.
The disadvantages of sunscreen for your skinWe can't say often enough that you should protect your skin against UV radiation. Sunscreens, on the other hand, can be detrimental to our skin, despite the protection they provide. You will find out soon enough when you have been lubricating for a few days. Below you can read a number of reasons why your skin does not like sunscreen.
You are using the wrong sunscreen
Getting bad skin from sunscreen may initially be due to using the wrong kind. Many people use one type of sunscreen for the whole body, including the face. It is better to buy a sunscreen for face. A general sunscreen often contains more oils and is too heavy for your face. You should also not use your nourishing body butter on your face, right?
Sunscreen pollutes your skinSunscreen can contaminate your skin. This usually happens during the application process. It is therefore important to apply your sunscreen to a clean face. If you don't do this, all the dirt and oil that has accumulated during the night or during the day will remain on your face. You stick this, as it were, under your layer of sunscreen.
You can get pimples from sunburn
As a result of the aforementioned disadvantage, there is a chance that you will get pimples from your sunscreen. It could be that there are certain chemicals or oils in your facial sunscreen that can greatly irritate your skin. In addition, the heat also plays a major role in the development of pimples caused by sunscreen. Heat plus a dense cream accelerates yeast growth. 1 + 1 = 2 and in no time you will feel annoying and sometimes itchy bumps appear.
Those nasty chemicals we just talked about can also, to put it bluntly, be comedogenic. This means that they clog your pores. Not fun! The sunscreens in your sunscreen can in some cases be the ones that close your skin. Which makes sense on the one hand, because it naturally wants to protect your skin against UV radiation. An accumulation of sebum and skin flakes are the result. You will see this result a little later after using sunscreen.
Combat polluted skin with More productsYou want to avoid all that nastyness, don't you? It is therefore important to use the best skincare routine when you regularly use sunscreen. Where we can hardly get out during the summer days. For a good summer skincare routine after using sunscreen, toners and clay powder offer a helping hand. Cleaning your face can be done according to this routine:
Step 1: clay powder
A good start for cleansing your skin is to use a clay powder such as our Moroccan Ghassoul clay powder. Which literally means "wash away". Let's just want that now! The clay powder works perfectly when cleaning the skin after using sunscreen, because it disinfects the skin, cleaning it deeply and thoroughly. Ideal for both dry and oily skin types. You can mix clay powder with water to apply it to your face as a kind of mask. Leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off and moving on to toner.
Step 2: toner
A toner is full of antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients. After you have cleaned your face with a clay powder, it is important to replenish your skin with the right properties. That's where a toner comes into play. A toner also removes the last bit of sunscreen that has sometimes lingered on your face. In addition, a toner is intensely nourishing, moisturizing and gives a refreshing feel and look. A toner is a good basis for the rest of your skincare routine.
Step 3: oil
You always use an oil as the last step. Why? Because otherwise your other products will not be able to fully function. Not only people with dry skin types, but also for sensitive skin, for example. By finishing your skincare routine with oil, you ensure that the moisturizing toner you used for this remains safe and well within your skin. An oil such as a 100% natural Baobab oil has a restorative, soothing and strengthening effect. Exactly what you want after a full day in the sun. Ingredients like vitamin E can help soothe your skin if it does feel a little sunburnt. This way your skin is perfectly cleansed after using sunscreen.
