Five Ways to Protect Your Skin and Get that Healthy Glow Year-Round

Intense sun exposure, plane travel, poor diet, and lack of sleep can wreak havoc on your epidermis, but that flawless glowing skin you desire doesn’t have to be evasive. There are some virtually effortless ways to create that magical glow all year long.

The Fairmont Store is now selling the premium skincare line Hampton Sun. Known for bringing luxury to the science of skincare, the line infused potent nourishing ingredients into their sun care for an elevated level of benefits for your skin. We’ve compiled a few of our favorite skin-saving tips and products from the new Fairmont Store line that will give your skin a brilliant glow.

Pucker up

Time in the elements or amidst drying plane air can create lips with a dry and scaly appearance and an imminent chance of cracking. What’s more, the sun disproportionately affects the mouth area, with the lips being one of the most prone areas to melanoma. Ensure you protect your lips with sunscreen and give them a healthy dose of suppleness with Hampton Sun’s SPF 30 Lip Balm with vitamins that regenerate damaged cells, hydrate and defend against sun damage.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

We know the importance of drinking water, but sometimes your skin needs an external dose of hydration too. Naturally found in your skin, hyaluronic acid has various uses retaining over 1000 times its weight in water, giving your skin that hydrated and plump look that minimizes the appearance of fine lines. Hampton Sun’s Silk Body Oil, available in both 15 and 30 SPF, is a lightweight body oil containing hyaluronic acid with a weightless and non-greasy feel. Your skin will thank you for the dose of vitamin E and nourishing properties for a more youthful look and feel.

Know your Type

Knowledge is power when it comes to the skin and sunscreens. Understanding the benefits of mineral versus chemical sunscreens can help you choose what is suitable for you and your family. The best sun protection is the one you wear every day; however, there are a couple of key differentiators to consider. Mineral sunscreen is ideal for very sensitive skin prone to reactions and provides a physical barrier that immediately starts protecting your skin utilizing titanium dioxide or zinc dioxide. Chemical sunscreens use chemicals to filter out the sun's damaging UV rays, penetrating your skin on a deeper level and require an application a minimum of 10-15 minutes before sun exposure. Hampton Sun offers a variety of both mineral and chemical sun care options for adults and kids alike, and for the tiniest of humans, Hampton Sun has created a SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for babies.

Not all Body Parts are Created Equal

Just like the lips deserve extra TLC, so does the decolletage, an often overlooked section of the body. Decolletage is the area underneath your neck and between your breasts that needs extra care and attention. The skin in this area is thinner and tends to dry out sooner than other body parts, meaning wrinkles can quickly develop here. Hampton Sun’s SPF 30 or SPF 50 Continuous Mist Mineral Sunscreen are oil-free formulas designed with an ultra-light silky feel that absorbs quickly and are water resistant for all your outdoor activities, protecting the most sensitive of areas.

Fake it Until you Make it       

Or choose to minimize sun damage while having that luminous look by using a tanning mist. Glow-inducing products have evolved significantly in the last few years and Hampton Sun’s Sunless Tanning Mist is an award-winning long-lasting product that will leave your skin a beautiful caramel color without the orange hue. Infused with the signature Hampton Sun Privet bloom scent, the product promises not to stain your bed sheets. The formula contains a molecule derived from naturally fermented red raspberry combined with DHA, the resulting tan is said to last longer and keep the sunless tan look longer without the damage of UV rays. Perfect to give you some color early in the summer or for those dark and cold winter months.
