Reduce the Impact of Sun Exposure to Your Skin with These Daily Self-Care Rituals

Protecting your skin from the effects of UVA and UVB rays is the smartest way to prevent skin cancer and long-term damage. There are several ways that you can transform your current skincare routine to include daily rituals that care for your skin’s wellness without spending hours in the bathroom. Here are a select few daily (or weekly) skincare rituals that provide the protection and reparative results that your skin needs due to sun exposure and damage.

Overnight Skincare

Instead of using a heavy face cream, choose an anti aging serum with lightweight coverage and penetrative properties. An overnight, anti-inflammatory treatment can reverse the damage caused by sun exposure and aging. By working from the inside out, overnight treatments strengthen the skin barrier and increase protection from future damage.

Ingredients like green tea leaf extract can help prevent the damage associated with skin cancer, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Tea polyphenols are naturally astringent and packed with anti-inflammatory properties. They also prevent the enzymes that break down the natural production of collagen and elastase, leading to early signs of aging. Green tea leaf extract should be a leading ingredient of any skin serum you use to care for sun damage.

SPF Protection

Protecting skin with SPF against UVA and UVB rays shields it, providing the first line of defense. Instead of treating sun damage, start by protecting it with SPF 20 non-nano zinc oxide sunscreen as your last step in your morning skincare routine. Non-nano zinc oxide is the safest source of sun protection. Paired with antioxidants, this daily protection provides the safety the skin needs and hinders the effects of free radical damage.

Apply every morning in every season to protect the skin throughout the year. Be aware that SPF damage can still occur in fall and winter months.

Hyaluronic Acid

Sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronic acid, is one of the best skincare ingredients for damaged and aging skin types. Not only does it hold 1,000 times its weight in water, but it penetrates deeply to provide the moisture the skin needs along with serious and long-lasting hydration. This powerful element in a hydrating serum helps aging and damaged cells retain water.

Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free radical damage and reduces inflammation, making it a safe ingredient for sensitive skin types. The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but production slows over time. Reinvigorate aging skin with this impressive polysaccharide.

Weekly Facial

Dead skin cell buildup results in a dull or dry complexion, especially if your skin struggles with retaining moisture. A weekly facial with lactic acid and essential fatty acids slough away dead skin cells and enable potent nutrients to deliver the nourishment the skin cells need. Illuminate a dull complexion in less than five minutes with a resurfacing mask that doesn’t strip, dry out, or dehydrate your skin.

While most facials with lactic acid focus on removing dead skin cells, make sure that the one you choose also has hydrating ingredients like mango butter, avocado butter, and jojoba seed oil. Dull skin craves deep moisture, an element that all of these ingredients are packed to the brim with. Experience a lasting glow despite sun damage or signs of aging with a facial at home once a week.

Your Turn FOR Care - very specialized, read for work
Your Turn for Care: Surviving the Aging and Death of the Adults Who Harmed You - Laura S. Brown

This is a book about relating to elders, caregiving, and death for people whose personal childhood story was a horror movie, not a Hallmark card.

 

For those adults who are pursuing relationships with and/or becoming caregivers to elders who were reasonably loving, decent, and honorable in their relationships with you, those complications are difficult in and of themselves...

 

There is a group of adults whose dilemmas in dealing with the aging, illness, and death of elders are complex beyond the norm. This book is for those folks—for adults raised in families that were frightening, confusing, dangerous, sometimes criminal in their treatment of their children. The elders in these families are...people who...behaved in vicious, venal, abusive, and/or neglectful ways to those children. You are those children, grown into adults confronted with cultural and social demands to relate to those elders, and sometimes to step into the caregiver role.

 

This is an almost one-of-a-kind resource, since nobody seems to have put together two clear facts: a huge number of children are abused in childhood, and [in the US] a full 60% of elderly people are being cared for solely by family. That number increases to 95% if we include family taking any role in caregiving for a family member. So it is clear that many people who were abused in childhood are now caring for that abusive parent/primary caregiver in their elderly years. 

 

Surprisingly, there was nothing in the self-help literature (and there seems to be little or no scholarly research finished or even in process) for those adult children who are now either feeling pressured to care for their former abusive caregiver or who are already doing so. 

 

Obviously this can be problematic on a number of levels.

 

I'm only writing this review so others will know of this resource. Written in a very open and non-prescriptive style, readers can take what they need and ignore the rest. For those who want much clearer "do this" and "don't do that" guidance, this may feel somewhat nebulous. The bottom line comes down to "you do not have to care for this person who harmed you when you were the vulnerable one." 

 

There is tremendous personal and societal pressure to take on the role of caregiver to an elderly person, but that may be a very bad idea for a number of reasons -- both to the adult child and to the formerly abusive older person. (And not every abusive person becomes lovely and kind in old age. They may continue some abusive patterns throughout life.)

 

Unfortunately, the US medical system doesn't much care if this person terrorized you, they will assume you either should or must take on this new project. Armed at least with one resource, hopefully we can avoid everyone feeling like they must be the primary caregiver to the person who failed so horribly in this role years before.

Miles to Go
Miles to Go - Richard Paul Evans

This book continues the story from The Walk.  

 

Alan Christoffersen is on a journey, a soul searching walk across the US.  He started in Seattle after he lost everything.  His wife died, his partner stole his business, and his cars and home were repossessed.  He was thinking about giving up and ending it all but something stopped him.  Instead, he grabbed a map and figured out the farthest he could walk on land and set his sites on Key West Florida.  At the end of The Walk he was attacked by a gang and serious injured.  He ended up staying with a woman who he had helped on his walk.  He fixed her tire and she gave him her card.  He forgot all about it but when he was taken to the hospital that number was the only contact info on him.  She came to help and offered him a place to stay while he healed.  While he was there he realized he wasn't there for her to help him.  She needed help herself.  

 

After Alan was healed enough to return to his walk he saw young woman being attacked by a group of men.  He helped her and she began to walk with him.  After she finally talked about her situation his heart really went out to her.  She was an abused child put in the foster system.  She was nearly 18 and since she knew she was going to be on her own soon anyway, she ran away and was living on the streets.  She was a great girl and didn't deserve her situation.  Alan really wanted to help her.  

 

____________________________________

 

This is a great soul-searching story for both the character and the reader.  I found several little gems to add to my quote book.  I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series and continuing the journey along with Alan.
