sun heat protection, skin healthy, skin protection, Sunscreen, Summer Beauty

The southwestern U.S. first day of summer is said to be the worst heat we have seen in years. News reports say that temperatures reached 119 degrees in Phoenix, where some flights have been cancelled because certain planes can't take off in extreme heat. Arizona has been suffering with intense heat, but the heat wave is also being felt across Nevada and California. Las Vegas was forecast to hit 117 (47 Celsius) on Tuesday and excessive heat warnings cover almost all of California.

To keep your skin healthy despite of the summer's heat make sure to drink plenty of water and don't forget to apply sunscreen when you go out to protect against harmful UVB (ultraviolet B) and UVA (ultraviolet A) rays.

UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin's thickest layer. Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging), and suppression of the immune system. UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.

You need a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. The SPF number is the level of protection the sunscreen provides against UVB rays.

Here are some of the best sprays, creams, and balms for all your UV-blocking needs in the market today:

The Ordinary Advanced Retinod Serum Effective Anti-ageing Formula



The Ordinary, skincare, skin products, beauty products, retinod, retinol


The Ordinary Advanced Retinod Anti-ageing formula is loaded with highly effective skincare ingredients. The Ordinary skin care products use only one or two time-tested ingredients that have been proven to work and visibly benefit skin like Vitamin C for bright and flawless complexion, Niacinimide to lighten dark-spot and salicyclic acid to remove spots and acne.

The Ordinary Advanced Retinod is a stable emulsion that combines two forms of next-generation retinoid actives in a combined concentration of 2% by weight. The highly effective formula stimulates collagen growth, promotes cell turnover, and exfoliates away dead skin cells, resulting in more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and the reduction of hyperpigmentation.

The two actives are:

1. Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate - this is a highly-advanced form of retinoid that is a non-prescription ester of all-trans direct retinoic acid which is much more effective against signs of ageing than retinol.

2. A sustained-delivery form of pure retinol in a protective capsule system which supports both the delivery and the effect of Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate.

This product uses next-generation retinoid active technologies which have been shown to achieve better reduction in signs of ageing than retinol without irritation. These technologies cannot be compared directly with retinol itself in terms of concentration because they include a different retinoid molecule, in a similar way that Retinol cannot be compared with Retinoic Acid in terms of concentration.

* Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids.

How to use:

- Apply Advanced Retinoid 2% to a clean, dry skin before any other products at night.
- Allow a few minutes for it to absorb.
- Do not use this serum with other products containing retinoids, such as retinol and retinoic acid.
- Retinoids can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Wearing sunscreen during the day is highy recommended.

It is a highly effective product that will leave your skin soft, refreshed and glowing at a very affordable price.

The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% 30ml $14.90 USD (Ordinaries)
