A recent study by Dr. Prof. R. Kundu, Prof of Dermatology at Northwestern University, published in JAMA Dermatology has studied the effects of UV-A and UB-B rays, which during the summer season create adverse impact on skin. During the summer season, the sun’s radiation is the strongest. The UV radiation that sunlight produces can harm skin by causing sunburn and developing free radicals. Large amounts of UV exposure can also cause skin cancer and reduce the ability of skin to protect itself, leading to premature aging signs. Using right kind of skin cream or lotion is essential to protect skin from the deleterious effects of overexposure. Lotion or sun cream of at least SPF 15 should be used for adequate protection.
According to the study, it was a surprise that only 75% of consumers bought their sun cream just by reading the top line saying protection from sun damage. Only 25% took care of finding out the SPF level on their sun creams. And, far less percentage of consumers were aware of the natural organic skin-friendly creams and lotions which are equally effective in protecting skin from sun damage and external pollutants.
Herbally Radiant has launched two special formulations: (1) Glowing Silk Primer, and (2) Body Day Cream to take full care of skin during summer. Both these are aloe based and contain several other organic ingredients to give more health benefits. The Body Day Cream has avocado and grapeseed oil for added protection from sun, while Silk Primer has organic aloe vera and other essential oils.
Avocado is one of the most nutrient ingredients for skin. Besides excellent protection from sun burn, it has many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats that help rehydrate the skin and aid the healing process along. The antioxidants in avocados help to get rid of toxins that promote premature aging and wrinkling of the skin. A lot of the toxins on facial skin are the residue of make-up or other cosmetics. Avocodo greatly helps remove these toxins.
Aloe vera is another major medicinal plant especially useful for protecting skin. Very effective in speeding the skin repair process in a variety of skin disorders like acne, psoriasis, eczema and pruritus. It is 99% water and 1% contains powerful synergy of 150 different elements, including vitamins.
