Dry and sensitive skin types are very prone to sun damage. For dry skin, summer sun exposure can cause it to become even drier. Not only does the sun dry out skin, but pool chlorine and salt water can also zap what little moisture your dry skin is clinging to!
When it comes to sensitive skin, sun, chlorine, and saltwater also cause issues; however, these issues can sometimes be even more extreme than those for dry skin. For starters, sensitive skin conditions like rosacea can be worsened by heat alone, and become even more irritated with direct sun and water exposure. Then there are those with conditions like polymorphous light eruption, which is an allergic reaction to sun exposure. The list goes on!
To keep things short and sweet, here’s some great news: most summertime dry skin conditions and sensitive skin issues can be addressed with the same two Atopalm products! These two skin care products aren’t the end-all-be-all, but they are definitely the go-to products for summertime skin care.
First, choose a shade (Light or Medium) of our BB Cream to wear each day. Atopalm BB Cream perfects the skin with mineral pigment while giving an extra dose of MLE on top of your daily skin care moisturizer. Most importantly for summer, though, is the fact that it contains SPF and skin care antioxidants to protect the skin and prevent sun damage and irritation. The best defense is a good offense, and skin care is no exception to this rule!
If you do fall victim to sun damage, or you find that swimming has done a number on your dry, sensitive skin, it’s time to turn to product number two: Moisture Mist. Atopalm Moisture Mist is a fine mist spray that can be used from head to toe. It contains a slew of soothing and moisturizing ingredients that replenish hydration in no time while deeply comforting damaged skin. Moisture Mist is a must-have product for every beach bag!
Adding these two sensitive skin care products to your daily summer skin care routine will go a long way toward keeping skin looking and feeling healthy all summer long.
