Summer is here, and for many of us that means more time in the sun. No matter what you have planned this season, make sure that your skin care is summer-ready—with skin care products and solutions that are designed to protect your skin from additional exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Is there a skin care line that’s summer-ready? Absolutely. Murad Environmental Shield skin products are ready for summer, just like you are!
But I Use Sunscreen! My Skin Is Protected From UV Rays!
If you’re not using sun protection, then you should add sunscreen (as well as makeup and moisturizers with a high SPF) to your skin care and beauty regimen immediately. There’s no greater enemy when it comes to aging skin than the sun. However, even if you’re regularly applying sun protection, there’s no way to entirely avoid exposure to UV rays. The sun is persistent, and even with sun block on, in the shade, with a hat, your skin will experience some degree of exposure. Even if you don’t spend much time in the sun, it’s still important to protect your skin. Choose a summer skin care regimen that will help prevent and reverse damage all season long.

How Can You Prevent and Undo Sun Damage?
What’s the best way to prevent and reverse the signs of sun damage? One of the most important tools in the battle against Environmental Aging and sun damage is a healthy dose of antioxidants. UV rays damage your skin by weakening elastin, breaking down collagen and damaging melanin, causing sun and age spots. All of these symptoms of sun damage are caused by free radicals in your body that result from UV exposure. Antioxidants combat and destroy free radicals, helping to prevent damage before it occurs.
Inclusive Health® Tip: Eat Your Antioxidants
There are two ways to pack your system with antioxidants to prevent and undo sun damage. The first is to eat plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. While all fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants that will make your skin and your whole body healthier, pomegranates, blueberries, acai and dark green leafy vegetables are particularly high in antioxidants. While it’s best to get all of your nutrients from natural sources, you can boost your antioxidant intake with a vitamin or dietary supplement.
Topical Antioxidants: Environmental Shield® Is Summer Ready
Topical antioxidants battle free radical damage where it’s most visible—on the surface of your skin. Murad Environmental Shield products feature the antioxidant power of Vitamin C, which helps prevent and reverse sun damage. These products also increase skin firmness, improve radiance, and help fade age spots and sun spots. Use the entire line, which includes a cleanser, several treatments, a face mask, moisturizers and an eye cream, or simply select the individual products you need to make your skin care regimen summer-ready.
Environmental Shield Introductory Kit
“I am very concerned with my age spots and ‘freckles,’ which seem to have gotten larger, not smaller, as my sun exposure gets smaller. With this product I find this reversing, and not only that but my wrinkles are less noticeable and my skin just feels better, not just looks better. It doesn’t get much better than that.” mel2jane, Huntsville, AL
Remember, Tanning Damages Your Skin
It’s important to note that tanning damages your skin as much as a sunburn does. No matter what you may think, healthy skin isn’t tan skin! Watch the video below to see how Dr. Murad answers a customer-submitted question on tanning and skin care.
You’re probably ready for summer, but is your skin care regimen summer-ready? If not, there’s still time to get the skin care products you need for healthy, radiant skin all summer long!
