When meeting someone new, the first thing you may notice is always their face, especially as this how most people recognize one another. Our face has some of the thinnest skin on our entire body, so ensuring we take the correct measures to protect that – will help to keep it looking healthy and youthful.

When tanning, we want to keep our skin looking healthy, firm, and free of aging effects. Some of the best ways to protect our money maker are:

Using the right skincare products and having a skincare routine

When you are trying to come up with a facial skin care routine, you want to ensure you are not using products that may be harsh and abrasive – disrupting the normality of the skin. You want to use products that contain ingredients that are meant to be used on the face (hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamins, non-comedogenic ingredients) which will help protect the most sensitive skin on the body.

Products we recommend for your face: 

Instant Icon – This face lotion is designed to help give you darker results while giving you a firmer appearance. The use of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen helps stimulate the production or more collagen to repair elasticity and remove fine lines.

Sustain Face Bronzer – This face lotion is constructed of vitamins, minerals, and Babacu oil, and Cupuacu butter to help hydrate the skin and leave it silky soft. Through this complex mixture of ingredients, the lotion will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Using Red Light Therapy to help restore the skin

With regular use of Red Light Therapy, the benefits to the skin can be restoring and extremely beneficial. Even though the benefits of Red Light Therapy can be seen throughout the entire body, the face is one of the most noticeable areas that see the results. Regular use of the Red Light will help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, minimize the appearance of cellulite, and stimulate circulation to help the skin glow more. The Red Light Therapy will help spark the production of more collagen in the skin, especially in the face – providing a soft, flawless glowing skin.

Products we recommend for your face for the Red Light Therapy: 

Restored 2-in-1 intensifier – This intensifying lotion can be used on the face to help filter blue-light spectrum rays – allowing for the purest red light to reach your skin (for maximum benefits). The formula is designed with an Alow Vera base to help match the pH level of the skin while being absorbed quickly to leave a soft feel. The use of Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C, two essential skincare ingredients, help to brighten the skin and give the skin intense hydration.

Restored Target Serum – This serum is designed specifically delicate facial skin to allow for the purest red light to reach your skin while filtering out the blue light. The ingredients in this serum deliver strong results to help protect and restore the facial skin. The combination of Hyaluronic acid, Argireline Peptides, Argan oil, Vitamins E and C, and Shea butter will all help to bring out more youthful, bright, and soft skin on the face – helping reverse the effects of harsh pollutants on the skin and sun damage.

Not overexposing the face to harsh sunlight

As the face is typically the first thing that people see, of course, you want a healthy & glowing tan on it! A tan looks great on everyone, but the dangers of overexposing it can cause serious effects. Typically, people will overexpose the face because it is one part that is quite difficult to cover and protect from the sun. We highly recommend trying to use shade and sunscreen when out in the sun for too long – especially on your face. This will help protect it more from the overexposure in the sun and in the UV tanning beds.

Products we recommend for your face to avoid overexposure: 

Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Lotion – Using an SPF lotion specifically designed for the face can help drastically in not clogging pores and not irritating the sensitive skin. This sunscreen is made from a mineral base, helping to avoid the greasy feeling most sunscreens have, as well as the combination of Kakadu Plum, Eucalyptus, and Red Algae help give your face rich antioxidant support. The subtle tint in this face lotion provides a seamless blend into your skin tone while providing a powdery matte finish.
