You did it again, didn't you? You fell asleep by the pool and forgot to reapply your SPF, only to wake up 4 hours later looking like a Red Lobster special. Look, it happens to the best of us. While your skin may be hurting now, Glow System's got your back (literally) with clean, antioxidant-rich, vegan skincare to nourish and soothe post-sun.
REAPPLY YOUR SPF!
First things first, to set your skin up for success, get yourself some Daily SPF Moisturizer. Put it on first thing in the morning and bring it in your makeup bag for reapplication. You can wear it under makeup, over makeup, or alone, but however you wear it — make sure you reapply. (serious voice)
We'll let you in on a little secret about sun protectants: all sunscreens only last 40 to 80 minutes tops (*insert every brand you can think of). It sounds made up, but it's true; sunscreens only continue to protect if you continue to reapply them.
A key benefit to our Daily SPF Moisturizer. is the purposeful inclusion of free-radical fighting antioxidants, radiance-inducing, soothing botanicals, and SPF protection. This formula has amla superberries, nature's most potent antioxidant, packed with vitamin C, a skin health essential. There is also avocado oil to nourish stressed skin with vitamin E, soothing aloe vera, and a vegan form of squalane to help maintain your skin's moisture levels. And, as if it couldn't get any better, mineral-based zinc leaves no white cast while still providing 20 SPF broad spectrum protection.
NOURISH + HYDRATE THE BODY
Let's say you were busy chatting with the cute lifeguard or hosting friends and forgot to reapply. While they may be raving about your plant-based burgers, your skin won't stop reminding you of your SPF forgetfulness. And if you didn't get that lifeguard's number, what was it all for?
The first thing you need to do is replenish moisture. Start from the inside out and drink a big glass of water (or three) and pair that with a natural solution such as arnica. Arnica is a natural ingredient that works well when applied topically, and it just so happens that our Magnesium Reset Spray makes it easy to do just that. Along with aloe vera, magnesium, turmeric, avocado oil, and amla, the Magnesium Reset Spray may help soothe and nourish the skin, promote even-looking skin tone, and induce all-over glow (plus, the aromatics and botanicals help you unwind after a workout or a long day in the sun).
After you've sprayed your Magnesium Reset Spray all over and allowed it to absorb, smooth a generous amount of Superfruit Body Lotion over the same areas leaving the face out (we'll get to that in a minute). Made with arnica (our friend from above), aloe, shea and cocoa butter, argan oil, and meadowfoam oil, this moisturizing formula makes for a great skin and muscle de-stressor locking in moisture when you need it most: post-sun.
Our final skin soother is our Head-To-Toe-Glow Oil. We love layering this product on top of the moisturizer to lock in the nourishment and hydration we’ve added thus far. Head-To-Toe-Glow Oil has quite the lineup: seven luxe oils and a whole repertoire of antioxidants including sea buckthorn oil (for firmness), argan, coconut, borage, meadowfoam, jojoba, avocado and castor oils, amla, aloe, turmeric, moringa, and skin-brightening chinaberry. This quick-drying oil is amazingly nourishing and deeply hydrating for skin post-sun or shave.
Now that you’ve nourished the body, we can work on what’s happening from the décolleté upwards. Our Radiance Serum is the perfect go-to for fast skin soothing hydration. This balancing formula refines and brightens skin's appearance with ample vitamin C thanks to the Glow System’s trusty amla superberry (but the skin-saving magic doesn’t stop there). Powerful fermented ingredients, potent botanicals and hyaluronic acid work to soften the look of fine lines and restore moisture while aloe vera simultaneously calms. This serum is one of our faves because it instantly makes tired skin look hydrated with a dewy, glowy bounce.
Once fully absorbed, follow up the serum with our Luminizing Face Moisturizer. This ultra-effective moisturizer is lightweight, calming and brightening with an antioxidant-infused formula of amla, avocado, marula, and aloe.
During a stressed state, your skin is at its most vulnerable. For this reason (and many more), you won't find any additives you don't need, like fragrance or dyes that could potentially irritate over-sunned skin.
Finally, add a layer of Head-To-Toe-Glow Oil. over top to slug in all the products' incredible therapeutic benefits. You'll see and feel results as soon as the following day.
