Be prepared for the SUN

Now summer is here and holidays are about to start, we have to prepare our skin for the sun.

Your skin is your largest organ, and it is constantly working to protect the rest of your body. The better care you take of your skin, the better your skin will do for the rest of your body.

Sunlight on your body is actually very good for you!

Vitamin D is synthesized in our bodies when the sun is warming our skin. The sun is the only energy source that is permanent on Earth. The sun provides us food, it warms us and helps our body to produce vitamin D. The sun makes life on earth possible, but it can also have detrimental effects without adequate protection. Solar energy reaches us from radiation, and this has both positive and negative effects on our skin and health. Sunlight is literally made up of every colour of the rainbow, plus a few other colours that we cannot see. These invisible rays contain infrared (what we feel as heat), and ultraviolet (UV) (which offers a brown tan but also skin damage). UVB is the radiation that gives you a brown tan, but this is also the radiation that burns your skin. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin and can damage our skin, causing the skin to age and producing wrinkles.  It is good to know that the super foodies SUN products protect both against UVA and UVB.
Do not forget to apply sunscreen every 2 hours to protect your skin to the max.

To make your holiday completely summer-proof, we developed a ' prepare for the sun treatment ', which you can book at your Oolaboo skin specialists.

The treatment starts with a mild cleansing of the skin, followed by a scrub with fine grains of pink sandy beaches from Tikehau, along with vanilla beans and Macadamia nuts, which the keratinized skin cells are gently remove.

During the Oolaboo Touch Massage you experience the ultimate feeling of luxury and exclusivity. The delicious fragrance sensation, the effective massage grips and the most intensive bioactive ingredients make your skin look radiant again.

In hyaluronic acid soaked eye pads reduce small wrinkles and give an intensive hydration of your skin around the eyes. Liquorice extract and grapefruit seed extract, ensure reduction of swelling under the eyes.

A mask takes care of the mature skin that quickly becomes dry, less well restored and its firmness loses. In order to approach the summer with a ' perfect shine ', your arms or legs will get a beautiful natural glow with the spray on bronzer during the working time of the mask.

As a finishing touch you will receive an eye brush massage with the truffle eye around cream. This product revitalizes the cells responsible for the production of collagen and elastin, making the skin firmer. This way the ageing of the skin around the eyes is counteracted. To optimally protect your skin, the treatment is completed with the moisturising sun cream-SPF 30. This protects and moisturizes your skin intensively, so that it feels supple and silky smooth throughout the day.

Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.
