Summer is in full swing and with longer days and high temperatures in our midst, sun protection is on everyone’s mind. This season is the time when most of us start to reach for the sunscreen, but dedication to SPF is super important and should be a year-round affair. At Hampton Sun, we turn SPF protection and skincare – which can be a bit of a chore – into a luxurious and sophisticated experience. Our products combine natural ingredients like Aloe Vera and walnut oil with vitamins and feature the most advanced SPF technology to keep you protected.
Hampton Sun’s philosophy is that of “Smart Serious Sunbathing.” We know that you’re not going to spend every day indoors and that you enjoy spending time in the sun – so why not be smart and safe about it? Everyone knows it’s important to use SPF – but why? The sun’s rays can not only cause skin cancer, but dehydrate the skin, destroy natural collagen and elastin (resulting in those unfortunate early signs of aging), can aggravate certain skin disorders and cause painful sunburn if you’re not careful. When choosing a sunscreen, it is important to look for products that contain high-grade moisturizers to hydrate the skin while you’re in the sun and feature physical and chemical sunscreens to help defend skin from these rays.
Physical sunscreens form a barrier that scatters the UV rays away from the skin’s surface, while chemical sunscreens absorb the rays and deactivate their harmful properties. Apply 30 minutes before direct sun exposure and don’t forget your hands and feet. When using sprays, always spray into your hands first and then apply to your face to avoid missing any areas or accidentally spraying the product into your eyes. In order for sunscreen to work to its full potential while you’re spending time in the sun, you must reapply during the day! We recommend reapplying our continuous mists every 80 minutes and our classic suncare collection every 40 minutes for optimal coverage and protection.
This summer, keep your skin protected, moisturized, and healthy and always remember Smart Serious Sunbathing!
