Start Your Week With ASEA: How To Protect & Treat Your Skin After Sun Exposure

Increased time outside during hotter months, exploring areas with higher altitudes, and recreating around bodies of water can increase the risk of harmful ultraviolet (UV rays) from sun exposure. After-sun care using a gel with cooling and soothing properties can help provide relief. RENU28® Revitalizing Redox Gel is a multipurpose gel that works as an all-over body application to ease minor irritants. 

Ultraviolet Rays

Ultraviolet rays are forms of invisible radiation that can pass through your skin and may lead to skin cell damage. When you suffer a sunburn, it’s a form of skin damage that needs extra care. Protecting yourself and preparing yourself beforehand for sun exposure is an effective way to avoid unnecessary skin health issues. 

UVB rays tend to penetrate less deeply into the skin, while UVA can damage connective tissue and increase your risk for more severe skin problems. Make sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure whenever possible and wear sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15. Sun protecting factor (SPF) refers to how long a person can expect to be protected from a possible sunburn but only refers to UVB protection.

Protecting Yourself From Sun Exposure

Always apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every 2 hours each time you are exposed to water or after sweating heavily. Wearing high-SPF clothing is also a good measure for burn prevention, especially for small children. Make sure to take frequent breaks in shaded areas. If you experience a sunburn, drink plenty of water to replace fluid loss, avoid further exposure until the burn has healed, and make sure to use a topical gel to provide additional relief.
