After-Sun Care with Emu Spirit
By Emu Spirit | January 18, 2019 | Blog
Summertime means more hours spent outdoors; soaking up more Vitamin D and sunshine. This can lift our spirits and give us more energy, however, like good things there is a risk of overindulgence. Excessive exposure to the sun can result in sunburns, or at worst; skin cancer.
Many of our customers have noticed that emu oil has provided them with additional protection from the sun, when applied underneath their regular sunscreen. This is because emu oil has a natural sun factor *. Emu oil can also provide an extra layer of protection for the skin against dehydration by the sun, which is great for those of us who are concerned about all the chemicals contained in regular sunscreens.
Even though we are usually careful about our sun protection routine, there are occasions where we will experience sun-damage.
Sun damage symptoms
After being over-exposed in the sun, you may experience symptoms of sun damage.
These can include:
– Sensitive & red cheeks
– Dry & dehydrated body skin
– Peeling and flaky skin
– Frizzy hair
– Dry lips or heels
Revitalise sun-damaged skin with these 5 easy tips:
Everyone knows how important it is to apply sunscreen before outdoor activities. However, most people don’t realise that it is equally as crucial to hydrate your skin after it’s been exposed under harsh sunlight. If your skin already appears to be dehydrated, then your body is most likely also dehydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water daily.
2. Cleanse your face and body
Your skin can become dry and sensitive after a beach trip (because the sea breeze and sand naturally exfoliates your skin, which can sometimes irritate it). Use a mild, soap-free formula to smooth and calm your skin. The best ones contain ingredients
3. Deep condition your hair
Your hair can also be damaged by the skin, so make sure you wash your hair thoroughly and gently. You can apply emu oil through your hair and scalp, gently massage it in, leave it for 10 minutes and rinse off. The emu oil can help moisturise your dry scalp and hair, as well as stimulate hair growth!
4. Treat your feet
If you have dry or cracked skin on your heels, an easy solution is to apply emu oil on the cracked areas. Use a few drops of 100% pure emu oil, massage gently and make sure all the oil has been absorbed. The emu oil can hydrate, moisturise and repair dry and damaged skin.
5. After-sun treatment
If you are accidentally sun burnt, emu oil is a good choice to mitigate the damage, pain and prevents peeling.
