By now, we hope you’ve learned enough about the benefits of proper sun protection and skincare from the Arizona Sun Blog. What we haven’t discussed in detail is the importance of using anti-inflammatory products to boost the health of your skin. Arizona Sun is about as close as you can get to natural skincare while still being an effective line of defense against UV rays, premature aging, and skin cancer. Without key active ingredients, we wouldn’t be able to call our products sunscreen as they wouldn’t protect you from the sun. What makes us unique is the many native and nourishing plants we use in our sunscreen, moisturizer, lip balm, and more. We apply the same approach to our skincare
Anti-Inflammatory Diets Aid in Skin Health
Sugar and refined carbohydrates lead to inflammation, acne, and other skin-related ailments. Cutting back on refined sugar found in many foods like white bread is the best way to jumpstart healthier, even-toned skin. When choosing foods that fight inflammation, look for those high in Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. Avocado, salmon, olive oil, and walnuts are a few options that keep skin looking fresh and healthy while fighting redness and irritation.
Anti-Inflammatory Key Ingredients in Arizona Sun
Arizona Sun Sunburn Relief Gel can help calm redness from acne, mild rashes, and eczema thanks to the key ingredients of aloe vera and cactus. These Arizona native plants have anti-inflammatory properties and make up a large amount of the Sunburn Relief Gel. This multi-use gel should be your go-to when your skin is red or inflamed. The cooling effects of aloe vera quickly soothe and alleviate pain from sunburn, inflammation, and other common skin conditions. Sunburn Relief is also the perfect post-wax follow up gel. Waxing is hard on your skin and it needs extra love and care within the few days post-wax. Apply this to clean, freshly waxed areas of your face and body to reduce redness and ingrown hairs. It also makes the perfect post-shave remedy for razor burn. Use it right after showering and be sure to follow up with Arizona Sun Moisturizer to lock in hydration deep below the surface of your skin.
Don’t Forget to Treat Your Lips
The delicate skin on your lips needs extra care whether you spend a lot of time in the sun or not. Having chapped or dry lips is not uncommon here in Arizona as the heat is very dry. Make LipKist, Prickly Pear, or any of our Sports Blok lip balms one of your go-tos as they contain SPF 15 and plenty of soothing, hydrating ingredients. We use aloe vera, cactus seed extract, and beeswax so you can obtain the softest, most kissable lips.
