Gentle spring sun already ruthlessly scrubs your skin with all the ensuing consequences – redness, accelerated aging, even malignant cell damage. In other words – it is high time to incorporate into use sun protection cosmetics. But more and more women prefer natural means. Here’s what nature offers us as alternatives:
Saturated oils with a protection factor of 2 to 5. As a rule, oils extracted from seeds of tropical trees have a natural sunscreen. These are cocoa, cocoa butter and shea butter. All the listed 3 at room temperature are in solid form, due to their high content of saturated fatty acids. Density gives them another advantage – they are not absorbed completely, they do not evaporate and create a protective layer on the skin. They are easily melt in touch with the exception of cocoa (melt only at 34 degrees), which needs more vigorously rubbing to the skin. However, do not give up its use, because it helps for particularly beautiful tan. For more convenience, you can mix it in a water bath with another oil for easy application. Invest some time to prepare your natural mixture and leave sofa cleaning to the local professionals.
Oils, antioxidants. Damage that UV rays cause the skin is largely due to the fact that they are the main “producers” of free radicals that attack the immune system, damaging cells and disrupting the synthesis of collagen. Therefore, natural products that contain powerful antioxidants can reduce the harmful effects of the sun.
Sesame oil is rich in substance sesamolin, which not only gives greater durability, but also neutralizes free radicals. Therefore applied to the skin before going out reduces the burning effects of the sun to 30%. Grape seed oil is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants – it contains anthocyanins, which successfully protect your skin from free radicals. The oil is odorless and extremely light, which makes it suitable even for application on the face. By the way, you may request professional carpet cleaning services and spend some time in finding information about the amazing benefits of saturated oils.
