While we love summer for its long, hot days and plentiful sunshine, it can take a toll on
our skin if we’re not careful. These preventative skincare products are some of our
favorites for preventing sun damage.
But first, sunscreen
SPF is non-negotiable year-round, but it’s even more important in the summer. With the
sun shining brighter and longer, it’s a good time to bump up your SPF (50 or higher for
ultimate protection). Whether you prefer a traditional sunscreen or a lightweight powder,
we promise to have an SPF you’ll actually love to wear.
Hyperpigmentation (dark spots resulting from sun damage) is one of the most common
skin concerns we treat. Most of the time, those sneaky sun spots don’t show up until
years after the damage is done. So even if you don’t see pigmentation now,
incorporating skincare that prevents its formation in the first place is the smartest
skincare move you can make this summer.
ZO’s Brightalive Skin Brightener and SkinBetter Science Even Tone both work to
prevent pigment formation while also minimizing the appearance of existing pigment.
Level up with antioxidants
Antioxidants enhance the effectiveness of your SPF. They work by neutralizing free
radicals (UV rays are one example of free radicals) and preventing damage to the skin
that later presents itself as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
Need an antioxidant serum? Try ZO Daily Power Defense, SkinBetter Science Alto
Defense Serum, or ZO 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating.
