Healthy Diet For a Healthy Glow
It’s common knowledge that a diet low in sugar and refined carbohydrates can help improve your complexion. Eating anti-inflammatory foods that are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids reduces inflammation that causes acne and irritation. If you’re looking for a little skin rejuvenation, try limiting sugar and refined carbs and eat fish, nuts, fresh fruit, avocado, and olive oil. A diet that’s easy on your skin goes a long way.
The Right Ingredients Go FarHowever, this is just the first step in healthy, glowing skin. The right oil-free moisturizers and sunscreen play a huge role in your complexion. If you’ve rotated through drugstore brands of sunscreen without finding anything special, it’s time to switch to the experts in suncare. Arizona Sun utilizes natural ingredients from right here in the Sonoran Desert. Aloe vera, nature’s healer, soothes skin and attributes to the fresh, clean feeling after applying our sunscreen. It also helps prevent the greasy feeling that many drugstore sunscreens leave behind.
Additional ingredients that we use in our products include jojoba seed extract which softens and smoothes skin. The Jojoba plant is native to the Sonoran Desert and easy to spot on many popular trails around the valley. Of course, we wouldn’t be Arizona Sun without the desert’s most well-known Saguaro cactus. Cactus extract is another natural moisturizer and skin soother. It has become quit popular in food form in recent years. We even sell cactus jelly in our gift department!
Determining Your SPFThere’s a reason for Arizona Sun’s wide range of SPF 3-45. Your SPF should be determined based on the day ahead of you. Your first step is making an oil-free moisturizer part of your morning routine. Even if you plan to spend the day inside, there’s no guarantee that you won’t have to venture out a few times. Even just a few trips outdoors with bare skin can cause long term sun damage from UV rays over time. Rather than taking your chances, it’s far easier to just use SPF every morning. Arizona Sun recommends using SPF 15 or SPF 30 after showering each morning. If you like to workout in the morning, opt for Arizona Sun SPF 45 Water-Resistant Spray. This lightweight, fast-absorbing sunscreen is perfect for when you’re rushing to get that walk, run, or ride in before the day begins.
Oil-free moisturizer is just one of the few things Arizona Sun gets right when it comes to the health and beauty of your skin. Check out our bath products, travel kits, and full suncare line at ArizonaSun.com
