How to Enjoy the Sun Safely This Summer

When the sun is shining and it’s lovely and warm outside, it’s tempting to spend as much time as possible outdoors. There is nothing wrong with sunshine and fresh air, but you need to enjoy it safely.

A small amount of sunlight is good for you as it stimulates your body to produce vitamin D, which the body needs to absorb calcium for strong bones. Excessive sun exposure, however, can be bad for your skin as the sun gives off ultraviolet (UV) rays, which although not visible to the human eye, can harm your skin and may increase your risk for developing skin cancer.

Although vitamin E is essential for healthy skin, it works best when balance with other nutrients particularly vitamin C. Like vitamin E, vitamin C is an antioxidant which plays a key role in collagen production. It helps heal damaged skin and fight the visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.

Tips for Using Vitamin E for Skin

In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E also works as a barrier booster as it seals in moisture and smooths the skin. This is why it’s such an important ingredient in anti-ageing skincare products and it is why we include it in all the products in the Isabella Balance Range.

Here are some simple tips to include vitamin E in your skincare routine:

Use the Balance Cleansing Oil to kick start the repair process.

The Balance Face Oil and Balance Serum offer protection and repair. Balance Liposome Repair Gel for healing and regeneration.

For additional protection, apply the Balance Day Cream after applying the serum or face oil.
