Kako pravilno njegovati kožu nakon sunca?

The sun's rays are all around us, whether you're walking on the beach, enjoying the shade of a cafe or sitting on a balcony. Did you know that some UV rays can penetrate even through window glass? That is why it is extremely important to know how to properly protect yourself from harmful UVA and UVB rays, but we must not forget that sunburned skin requires special care.



After a whole day of sweat and SPF creams being absorbed into your face, it is imperative to clean your face thoroughly. With the facial cleansing product, you remove all the impurities that have accumulated on your face during the day and achieve a fresh and clean skin appearance. In doing so, we do not mean the use of wipes for removing make-up or micellar - the face must be washed and washed with gel, foam, cleansing balm or oil cleanser, while during the summer the popular double cleansing method of facial cleansing is recommended, which involves massaging the oil cleanser onto a dry face and after washing, applying a cleansing gel that thoroughly removes all remaining impurities from the face.


Peeling is recommended to be used once or twice a week in order to deeply remove impurities and remove dead skin cells. Keep in mind that regular face and body peels accelerate the loss of tan, so adjust the frequency according to what you're aiming for. Facial peeling must be gentle enough to remove a layer of dry, dead skin cells and the impression of lifelessness from the face, without causing irritation or increasing the skin's sensitivity to the sun. Peeling can be mechanical or chemical, and both types can increase sensitivity to the sun. As a rule, chemical peels are gentler than mechanical peels, and among them it is better to use those based on BHA instead of AHA acids in the summer, since AHA acids make the skin more sensitive to the sun. It is desirable that the chemical peels you use in the summer also contain photoprotective ingredients, such as ectoine, which will further increase the skin's resistance to the sun. L'ADRIA Clarifying serum is an example of just such a chemical peeling that is gentle, non-drying and full of photoprotective ingredients, which makes it ideal for the summer period.

Hydrating the skin is extremely important in the summer when, due to the drying effect of the sun and sea salt, increased transepidermal water loss can occur. It is a process during which the skin barrier weakens and loses water, due to which dehydration soon occurs. It is especially important to nourish the skin thoroughly after returning from the beach. Before applying the cream, we recommend using a moisturizing tonic that will restore the skin's pH balance and give the original dose of hydration, and the use of a hyaluronic serum such as L'ADRIA Instant revitalizing serum, which will quickly restore the much-desired "water" to the skin. Finally, it is important to choose soothing, but not greasy creams with antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and reduce skin redness caused by UV radiation, so that the skin recovers quickly after the sun. L'ADRIA Regenerative cream is the ideal product for restoring facial skin after the sun, as it contains a high dose of vitamin E and the amino acid carnosine, which both stimulate recovery and reduce skin redness after exposure to UV radiation.
