These days, protecting our skin when the sun is shining has become second nature to many of us, especially those with delicate, porcelain skin. But what happens when the signs of sun damage start to make themselves known, after the fact? You see, sun damage is a sneaky beast, biding its time before showing up on our skin – sometimes taking up to 20 years, resulting in loss of elasticity, pigmentation marks, wrinkles, dryness and more besides.

Bathing in SPF 50 and hiding underneath leafy greens is certainly a great preventative measure but it can’t turn back the hands of time, which is why a little helping hand is always appreciated, so we’ve rounded up some of the best repairing and skin strengthening products to help boost your complexion’s defense system.

Brightening and Protecting:

Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

Think of this as a loyal sidekick to your daily SPF moisturiser; helping to not only protect, but also defend skin. The lightweight, non greasy face oil is jampacked with anti-oxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, omega 3, 6 and 9 as well as UV shields to boot, all of which work to give skin a comforted, hydrated feeling and healthy glow.

Hydrating and Reviving:

Shiseido IBUKI Sleeping Mask

Revive tired, dull and dehydrated skin over night with this innovative gel mask. It contains vitamin-infused beads, which burst on contact with skin to flood it with moisture to plump and nourish while you sleep, leaving it looking fresh and dewy come morning time.

Radiance Restoring:

Perricone MD Concentrated Restorative Treatment

If you’re serious about turning the tide on wrinkles and pigmentation then this vitamin-packed cream is the one for you as it’s been specifically designed to help reverse the signs of sun damage on skin and restore a healthy, radiant complexion. The paraben-free formula works to resurface skin’s texture and reduce discolouration, diminishing the appearance of lines as well as firming and toning.

Youth Boosting:

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum

Described as an “anti-oxidant youth shot” this potent, plant-based serum works to block free radicals and boost the skin’s natural repair process using active ingredients such as grape polyphenol, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid at their highest concentration.
