Keep your skin protected from the sun with Environ Skincare and Jane Iredale Skin Care Makeup

Let’s focus in on some of the best and most versatile SPF Suncare products we have on offer here at The Skin Clinic Direct 

Before we begin the product breakdown – let’s take a look at the reason why the sun is so damaging to the skin.

What is SPF?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and it indicates how long it will take for ultraviolet B (UVB) rays to redden your skin when you use a sun protection product, compared to how long the skin would take to redden without the product. So, the SPF number gives you some idea of how long you can stay in the sun without burning.

Why is the sun harmful to our skin?

UVB rays were once thought to be the culprits because they penetrate and affect the epidermis, but UVA rays are now known to be equally, if not more damaging.

The aim of a Sunscreen is to minimise the damage that the sun can cause to our skin. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide in Jane Iredale bases physically block UV rays by acting like tiny mirrors on the skin reflecting and refracting the rays.

Some damage can be reversed or minimized but only if the skin is always protected from the sun – that is why it is so important to try and prevent skin damage before it happens. There are many excellent skin care products and nutritional supplements on the market today that can substantially aid the skin in repairing sun damage. But they do little good if they aren’t combined with sun protection – so remember to wear your sunscreen and a hat!

What are the results of skin damage?

Lines, wrinkles and sagging are the direct results of sun damage to the underlying collagen and elastin fibres. Hyperpigmentation can be caused or exacerbated by sun irritation to the melanocytes (the pigment-producing cells), which in turn causes overproduction of melanin, which is in fact the body’s attempt to protect itself. Add in hypopigmented macules, telangiectasias and raised, rough precancerous actinic keratoses (the most common skin precancers) and the result of tanning is not pretty.

Remember – a tan is a sign of injury! More than 90% of the visible signs of aging are due to sun exposure. Try Environ’s RAD SPF 15 Sunscreen, Jane Iredale’s SPF Powder-Me, and the Jane Iredale Mineral Base Foundation with SPF.

Sunscreen

Environ’s RAD SPF 15

RAD SPF 15 is a sun protection cream containing sun filters and reflectors to provide SPF 15 sun protection, along with antioxidants, titanium dioxide, beta-carotene and vitamins C and E which help to fight free radicals. One of the great things about this sunscreen from Environ is that it is suitable for all skin types and all ages, including babies older than six months!

What makes it so special is the unique combination of physical and chemical sunscreens offers broad protection against UV-A and UV-B rays. Not only does it provide your skin with the important protection against these harmful rays, but it also supplies the skin with the essential antioxidants necessary for enhanced protection from harmful environmental influences. These are called Free radicals, they are released: when your body breaks down food, and when you are exposed to external irritants such as pollution, radiation or cigarette smoke. This added layer of protection means that Environ’s RAD SPF 15 is a must-have preventative product in delaying the ageing process of the skin.

It’s light, creamy texture is easily applied to the entire body for a smooth, satiny after-feel and it is suitable for use under make-up.

 Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen

Nourish, protect and soothe your skin with this broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen for body, face and scalp that’s water-resistant up to 40 minutes as well as being reef-safe sunscreen.

The feel of this powder is nourishing and soothing. The handy applicator makes for mess-free UVB/UVA SPF 30 protection from the sun. It can also be used sunburn to help soothe inflammation.

Tackling Acne with Environ | Acne Awareness Month

The month of June marks the beginning of #acneawarenessmonth so we at The Skin Clinic Direct thought it would be the perfect opportunity to draw your attention to the some of the best acne solutions around, courtesy of Environ UK, Advanced Nutrition Programme and Jane Iredale.

At the heart of Environ is science, care and beauty. Founder Dr Des Fernandes discovered that the right doses of Vitamin A can counteract the harmful effects of the environment, pollution and stress on the skin. That is exactly what Environ skincare does – delivers the right amount of Vitamin A, alongside other vitamins and anti-oxidants, direct to your skin.

With this in mind, we have outlined the best plan of attack against spots, blemishes and acne from theEnviron’s B-Active Range.

Skincare Routine For Acne-Prone Skin | with Environ

  1. Sebu-wash – a low foaming cleansing gel containing tea tree oil to assist in removing skin debris without drying the skin, while maintaining a natural acid balance.

  2. Sebu-tone clarifier  helps to hydrate and refine skin texture.

  3. Mix equal amounts of Sebu-Lac Lotion and Sebu-ACE Oil in your hands and gently massage the affected areas.

  4. For specific breakouts Sebu-spot helps clear localised impurities and reduces the signs of redness and congestion.

Vitamin A is the only molecule that can help control acne by reducing the appearance of blackheads and white heads, helping to control an inflamed appearance of the skin and helping to inhibit excess sebum.

Over time, increasing doses of vitamin A help normalise skin cells to the point where breakouts occur less frequently and are less visible.
