Sun damage is a serious concern for many people living in the UAE due to the intense and constant sun exposure. However, there are many steps you can take to prevent sun damage to your skin.


Here are some tips to help you protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun:


Wear protective clothing: Wearing clothing that covers your skin is an effective way to prevent sun damage. Choose lightweight, breathable fabrics such as cotton or linen that cover your arms and legs. You can also wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face, neck, and ears from the sun.


Use sunscreen: Applying sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from sun damage. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and apply it 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating. Our Mineral Defense SPF helps guard skin against sun damage, early signs of aging, and the breakdown of collagen to help maintain a healthy skin barrier.



Seek shade: When possible, seek shade during the hottest parts of the day. The sun's rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so try to avoid being outside during these times.


Wear sunglasses: Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from the sun's harmful rays, but they also protect the delicate skin around your eyes. Look for sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays.



Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin healthy and hydrated, which can prevent sun damage. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.


Use skin-care products with antioxidants: Antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E help protect your skin from sun damage by neutralizing free radicals. Look for skin-care products that contain these ingredients. Our new Vitamin C Serum contains a concentration of 13.5% blend of Alpha Arbutin with Vitamin C. 



To minimize the risks associated with sun exposure and laser facials, it's important to avoid direct sun exposure before and after the treatment. Sun exposure can also reduce the effectiveness of laser facial treatments. This is because the laser works best on skin that is in a more natural, healthy state. Sun-damaged skin can be dry, flaky, and uneven in texture, which can make it harder for the laser to penetrate the skin and achieve the desired results.

By following these tips, you can help prevent sun damage to your skin and keep it healthy and youthful-looking. Remember, it's never too late to start protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
