With sunshine just around the corner (fingers crossed!), let’s talk skincare and sun protection. 

Believe it or not our skin is the largest organ we own. That means it’s definitely worthy of some attention. 

Caring for our skin goes beyond the surface. It’s a balance of nurturing from the inside out and the outside in. We’re going to dive into the dynamic duo of skin health: the protective power of suncream and its benefits and the purifying power of Rebel Kitchen’s juices. 

But we won’t stop there. We’ll sip our way to clarity with Rebel Kitchen’s detoxifying juices, highlighting our Ruby Roots blend – a tasty concoction rich in vitamin C, known for its collagen-boosting abilities, among other juices we have.

And because we know there are many different suncreams out there, we’ll arm you with the tips you need to choose the right one.  

The Science of Suncream Benefits 

The sun’s UV rays can cause more drama than a reality TV show, but a good SPF has your back. Suncream is an essential in helping to prevent against skin cancer, including  melanoma, but is also your ally in keeping your skin looking fresh for years to come.  

Committing to a skincare routine is all about the future dividends.  So, get that sunscreen on and show those UV rays they picked the wrong skin to mess with. 

Internal Nourishment with Rebel Kitchen’s Juices 

When it comes to skin health, what you put into your body is just as crucial as what you put on it. That’s where Rebel Kitchen’s juice cleanses come into play, with a refreshing way to detoxify and nourish from within.  

Our juices are bursting with vitamin C to boost your collagen and give your skin that “I woke up like this” look. Juice cleansing is like hitting the reset button for your body. It’s about clearing out the toxins and flooding your system with a powerhouse of natural nutrients from freshly pressed fruits, vegetables, herbs and nuts. This internal cleanse can lead to a brighter complexion, a reduction in inflammation and an overall boost in skin health. 

Our Ruby Roots juice Is packed with vitamin C, a part of the Light Legend cleanse, designed to deliver diverse nutrients while keeping the calorie count in check. 

On the other hand, our Classic Carrot juice, rich with nutrients that will help you boost your Vitamin A. It teams up with sunlight (okay, not literally) to make you feel invincible. 

Each juice is carefully crafted to ensure you’re getting the most out of your cleanse. With options like Green Guru for an extra dose of leafy greens or Restore and Refresh for a protein-rich mix. 

Choosing the Right Suncream 

Now, let’s talk about suncreams. Not all suncreams are created equal and the suncream benefits vary. Picking the right suncream is like choosing the perfect avocado – there’s an art to it.  

Here’s the lowdown on how to snag the best suncream for your skin’s defence: 

  • Be SPF Smart: Did you know that SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor? Look for SPF 30 or higher to keep those harmful rays at bay. But remember, higher SPF doesn’t mean all-day protection – remember to keep topping up every few hours! 
  • UVA and UVB Badassery: Go for broad-spectrum suncream. It shields you from both harmful UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) rays. They’re the double agents that protect you from both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.  
  • Water-Resistant Warrior: If you’re planning a beach day or just sweat it out on a run, grab a water-resistant formula. It’ll stick with you through thick and thin (or at least for 40 to 80 minutes). 
  • Skin Type Tactics: Sensitive skin? Look for mineral-based sunscreens with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide – they’re gentle yet tough on the sun. For oily skin types, aim for lightweight, non-comedogenic formulas that won’t clog your pores. 
  • Be eco-Friendly: Love the planet as much as your skin? Choose reef-safe sunscreens that skip the oxybenzone and octinoxate.
  • Vitamin Vibe: Some sunscreens come with added vitamins like E and C. They’re like a power-up for your skin, fighting free radicals and keeping your skin looking pristine. 

Whether you’re into mineral blockers or chemical shields, the rule of thumb is simple: find what works for you and stick with it. Your skin will thank you and you’ll be ready to face the day like the rebel you are. 

Let’s wrap it up 

So, as you gear up for the summer, make it a date with yourself. Grab that bottle of sunscream, a bottle of Ruby Roots or Classic Carrot and let’s toast to the skin that’s not just surviving the spotlight – it’s thriving in it.
