As the days of summer begin to fade, it's time to address the aftermath of those sun-soaked adventures. While we may love basking in the sun, prolonged sun exposure can take a toll on your skin. The signs of photodamage include decreased elasticity; rough, uneven skin tone & texture; broken capillaries around the nose and chest; and increased redness/blotchiness.  While the consequences of sun exposure may not show up at first, the damage is cumulative. Don’t let this happen to you!  In this blog, we offer tips about how to heal your skin after summer’s sun damage. Whether you're dealing with sunburn, dryness, or fine wrinkling, this blog will help you achieve a healthier, more radiant complexion.  


Sun Protection: 

When it comes to safeguarding your skin from the sun's damaging rays, prioritize your face, an area especially susceptible to sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging. Incorporate a broad-spectrum sunscreen into your skincare routine every day. Apply sunscreen generously over all sun-exposed areas including forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. Don't forget to cover your neck, ears and hands, too. Wear sun-protective accessories such as wide-brimmed hats and UV protective sunglasses. These steps create the foundation for skin healing and restoration. 


Revercel products that shield your face against sun damage include Triple Duty Plus SPF 35+ and AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+. Triple Duty Plus is an all-physical, mineral formulation that not only protects against UVA/UVB rays, but it also contains a sheer tint for an even glow. AM provides broad-spectrum sun protection and deep hydration while it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 


Vitamin C: 

When it comes to restoring and revitalizing sun damaged skin, vitamin C is unsurpassed. This powerhouse antioxidant not only helps repair photo-damaged skin, but it also protects against environmental aggressors. Vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis to improve elasticity and firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, vitamin C brightens the skin, fading brown spots and hyperpigmentation. Incorporate vitamin C into your skincare routine to give your skin a boost and accelerate healing. 


CE Serum is formulated with vitamins C & E and ferulic acid to provide optimal protection against environmental damage, reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, and help repair sun damaged skin. 



Moisturizing is an essential part of the healing process and using a physician-strength night cream can make a world of difference. Sun exposure can leave your skin dehydrated, blotchy and in need of nourishment. A rich, hydrating night cream will help replenish lost moisture, repair the skin's natural barrier, and promote healing during sleep. It will also lock in moisture, soothe irritation, and reduce the redness caused by sunburn. Apply a generous amount onto clean, dry skin at bedtime. Remember, well-hydrated skin is better able to heal and bounce back from the effects of sun exposure, so make a clinically formulated night cream an essential part of your routine. 


PM Anti-Aging Moisturizer contains important ingredients to de-age and heal the skin: myristoyl peptide-17, myristoyl nonapeptide-3, and CoQ10.  Together, they stimulate collagen production, increase cell turnover, help reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles, and deeply moisturize—all while you sleep.  


Healing your skin after sun damage requires patience and consistency. Follow these tips and regain a revitalized, radiant complexion. Bid farewell to end-of-summer skin by embracing restorative skincare.
