Our skin has one mortal enemy: the sun! Sure, it gives us light and warmth, but overexposure to its rays is never a good thing. Think of all the damage it can cause to your complexion! It produces ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) that dehydrate and cause damage to the skin cells, leading to irritation, pigmentation and premature aging. It could even lead to skin cancer! Here’s what to look out for, and how to beat the hot, sunny rays!

How do we fight the sun?
Finding the right sunscreen that both suits your needs and your skin type is important, and it’s the best way to block out the harsh sun rays. Getting one that’s waterproof and made for the beach is great, but keeping your skin protected on the daily is just, if not more important. The sun can reach your skin no matter how cloudy it looks outside, and using a lightweight sunblock with no white cast is really the best way to go. Let us reintroduce you to Althea’s Petal Velvet Sunaway - our best selling sunscreen!

The Petal Velvet Sunaway is an ultra lightweight sunscreen that features a non-chemical UV filter with an SPF 50, PA+++. What this means is that instead of absorbing deep into the layers of the skin, it creates a protective barrier that scatters UV light. This method is super skin-friendly, making it great even for those of us with sensitive complexions as the ingredients used are nice and gentle.

Sunscreens usually have a notorious reputation for being drying on the skin, causing fine lines and flakes. To combat that, the Sunaway is formulated with a quenching mix of hyaluronic acid and Damask rose extracts that plump up the skin from within, giving your face a hydrating treat! It also has finely milled micro-powder particles that help to keep sebum at bay, leaving the skin feeling fresh while you’re out and about, and it’s liquid-y texture blends easily into the skin to give you a seamless, invisible finish that doesn’t leave behind any streaks or a white cast. 
With this product, we wanted to create a weightless sunblock that felt fresh on the skin even through the heat and humidity; the perfect beauty companion that’s ideal for everyday use. Just smooth on a generous layer into the skin and allow to absorb before stepping out the door for protected, healthy skin. You can thank us later!

The Petal Velvet Sunaway is great for all skin types and all ages and has a hypoallergenic formula that won't irritate the skin. Plus, it’s cruelty-free, so no cute furry animals were harmed in the process of making this product (yay!). We’re even doing a multipack promo where you can get 3 Sunaways with a 10% discount, so make sure you check that out on Althea’s site. The more you buy, the more you’ll save! 
Have a magical day!
