Post-Sun Repair: How to Heal and Soothe Sun-Damaged Skin

Summer is a season synonymous with outdoor activities, beach outings, and sun-soaked afternoons. While the sun provides essential Vitamin D and a mood-boosting warmth, prolonged exposure can lead to significant skin damage. Sunburn, premature aging, and even increased risks of skin cancer are common consequences of too much sun. Proper after-sun care is crucial to mitigate these effects and promote skin healing. NEOVA offers a range of products specifically designed to address and repair sun-damaged skin, including Body Repair, Pure Copper Mask, and Cu3 Recovery Spray. 

Understanding Sun Damage

Before delving into post-sun repair, it’s important to understand how sun damage occurs. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun penetrates the skin and can cause immediate effects like sunburn, as well as long-term damage such as photoaging and an increased risk of skin cancers. UVB rays are primarily responsible for sunburn, while UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin, leading to wrinkles and aging.

Signs of sun damage include:

  • Redness and inflammation
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Peeling and blistering
  • Dryness and dehydration
  • Hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Immediate Steps for Post-Sun Skin Care

1. Cool Down Your Skin: The first step after experiencing sunburn is to cool down your skin. This can be achieved by taking a cool shower, applying cold compresses, and or applying a chilled Pure Copper Mask on sunburned areas. Avoid hot water as it can exacerbate irritation.

2. Stay Hydrated: Sun exposure can lead to dehydration, which affects your skin’s ability to repair itself. Drink plenty of water to help your body recover and keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

3. Avoid Further Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun until your skin has fully healed. If you must go outside, wear protective clothing and be sure to apply a sunscreen to avoid further damage.

    • Bis [Tripeptide-1] Copper Acetate. Also known as Copper Peptide Complex, it plays a fundamental role in skin health by helping to restore the skin’s ability to repair itself.
  • How to Use: Apply Body Repair generously to all sun-exposed areas of the body after cooling down. For best results, use twice daily until the skin has fully recovered. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly, providing immediate relief without leaving a greasy residue.

2. Pure Copper Mask: The Pure Copper Mask is a luxurious treatment that delivers intense hydration and promotes skin repair. This mask is infused with copper peptides, which are known for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It was even recently included in Vogue for a Met Gala Treatment!

  • Key Ingredients:

    • Copper Peptide Complex. Essential to tissue repair and rehabilitation
    • Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid. A very low molecular weight, tight junction strengthening Hyaluronic Acid supplying hydration into the skin. With the ability to fill wrinkles from the inside out, Hyaluronic Acid also contributes significantly to the elasticity of the skin.
  • How to Use: Apply a generous layer of Pure Copper Mask to clean, focusing on areas affected by sun damage. Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with cool water. Use the mask 2-3 times a week for optimal results. The cooling sensation of the mask will provide immediate relief, while the active ingredients work to repair and rejuvenate the skin.

3. Cu3 Recovery Spray: The NEOVA Cu3 Recovery Spray is a convenient, on-the-go solution for soothing and healing sunburned skin. This spray delivers a fine mist of copper peptides that will accelerate the skin’s natural healing process.
