1. Cleanse with soothing, healing, moisturizing formulas

2. Soothing Toners & Elixirs
A water based toner or mist will be your dehydrated and sun damaged skins best friend. Nourishing and light with ingredients like rose water, neroli water, witch hazel, and aloe, never alcohol-based or drying, delivering antioxidants and more to the skin.
3. Hydrate & Repair Sun Damaged Skin
Repairing sun damage is not a quick fix, but it is possible to lighten and brighten dark spots, even the skin tone and replenish the collagen and elastin in your skin.
Choosing skin products that have: Peptides, AHA's, Retinol, Collagen, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Pink Rock and Argan Oil.
4. Exfoliate & Refresh
In the territory of beautiful tanned skin comes dry, flaky and dead skin cells. Because your skin is damaged, you are likely to experience more dead skin cells flaking off.
