After-Sun Facial Repair Treatment and why It Is Essential After a Vacation in Aruba

Vacations in Aruba are all about living your best life and creating new memories. However, sometimes these memories are reflected into your face in the form of dark spots and wrinkles because of the sun exposure. When this happens the most pleasant memories become a little overshadowed, don’t you think?

And you don’t want this! You want to remember your trip to Aruba with the feeling of the silky white sand over your feet, and the breathtaking view of the bright turquoise water in front of you.

The best beaches in the Caribbean come with a strong sunlight

Aruba is well known for having the best beaches in the Caribbean, some would even dare to say that it has the best beaches in the world, including Eagle Beach, Palm Beach, and Andicuri Beach.

The Happy Island is also the perfect destination to escape from winter because it is known as the island that shines all year round, even though it’s quite windy, there’s rarely a storm. In fact, Aruba’s sky is the clearest and bluest from all the Caribbean Islands one of the reasons behind its beauty.

Keep in mind that being relatively close to the equator, Aruba’s sun is strong.

So as beautiful as these beaches are they might come with some extra price if you are not careful enough. We aren’t talking about money, we mean the side effects that the brightest star above can cause over your skin after exposure.

¿How do sun rays actually affect your skin? 

You probably think you already know all about sun damage, but there are a few things that you might be taking for granted.

There’s UVA and UVB radiation coming from the sun, both penetrate your skin’s layers: the epidermis (top layer) and the dermis (deeper layer), and both affect your skin in different ways.

For example, UVA rays penetrate into the dermis, where your skin’s collagen and elasticity lives, this causes loose skin and premature aging.

While UVB affect your epidermis, generating unpleasant sunburns and eye problems.

You won’t even notice part of the damage immediately because sun damage is also cumulative, which means it builds up over time starting when you were just a baby However, it sure shows up as you get older.

This is just one of the reasons why an After Sun Facial Repair Treatment after a vacation in Aruba is a must!

Before getting there, you have to be aware of the ways in which your skin is affected, especially your face, not only because you only have one for the rest of your life, but because it is the most exposed and vulnerable area of your body. 

The results of accumulated sun damage on your skin

Sunburns

Sunburns are the most common negative effect of excessive sun exposure.

If you have experienced sunburn before, and to be honest, who hasn’t? You’ve probably noticed that symptoms don’t usually appear until four or five hours after you’ve had too much fun at the beach.

Some of those symptoms are: redness, swelling, pain, headache and blisters.

It can get so bad that even the slightest move hurts.

Loose skin

This is one of the sun exposure damages that manifests with time.

UV rays cause damage in collagen and elastic tissue which leads to sagging and premature aging.

Wrinkles

Wrinkles are associated with aging, but sun exposure is a significant factor to determine how early they appear. 

Did you know that eighty percent of visible aging is caused by the sun?

As we just explained, the sun damages collagen and elastic tissue , which is  the cause behind the premature appearance of wrinkles and deep lines. 

If you don’t do something about it soon you are very likely to develop more wrinkles in the future.

Now you know why two people the same age can look like they are completely different ages depending on the amount of sun exposure they have had, and many other lifestyle choices.

Dark and white spots

UV light exposure damages the cells in the surface of your skin which causes white and dark spots on the skin. It also makes acne hyperpigmentation worse, so for the ones suffering from acne, sun protection is a must. 

Dry Skin

The sun can parch your skin, causing rough patches, this is almost inevitable. But keep in mind that drinking  plenty of water during the day and after sun exposure will help you hydrate.

But don’t worry, you don’t need to be looking like a lizard for the rest of your vacation in Aruba because the After Sun Facial Repair Treatment that we are about to reveal will help you get your smooth skin back.

And now, the good news!

You don’t need to stop having a good time at the amazing beaches in Aruba in order to be safe and protect your skin from sun damage. 

All you have to do is follow these few tips.

Skincare essentials before and after sun damage

Before Sun Damage

1. Pick the right time 

Staying away from the sun rays between these hours will save you a lot of trouble. 

The sun’s rays are stronger between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m, so if you avoid direct exposure between that time block your skin won’t suffer that much later.

2. Make sure to wear proper clothes 

A long-sleeved shirt and pants will always help you have more protection against sun rays, but if you don’t think that’s too fashionable for the beach, I’m sure a broad-brimmed hat and some cool sunglasses will do.

3. Check that you have the right kind of sunscreen 

In your vacation you’ll need a sunscreen that protects you against both UVA and UVB rays.

Broad-spectrum sunscreen is the one, so make sure it has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 and you’ll be ready for  fun under the sun.

Do you know what to do when it’s too late for that and the harm is already done?
