Secret Ingredient for Treating Acne and Sunburn

Sunscreen may remind you of summer time, but the damaging UV rays are around us during all seasons. In fact, in snowy areas during the winter, UV rays can be even stronger as they have more areas to reflect from. That’s why it’s important to wear an SPF 30 physical sunscreen like DEFEND every day.

But even with the most protective of sunscreens, sunburns can happen. You may forget to reapply or miss a spot. When sunburn does happen, it can be a painful experience, especially if it is combined with acne.

Aloe vera is the ingredient most commonly associated with addressing sunburn. While it provides relief, detoxing and moisture, there is another ingredient that speeds healing from sunburn even more - lavender.

Lavender essential oil has shown to speed up the healing of tissue, while helping prevent infection with its antibacterial properties. Because of the latter, it also doubles as a star ingredient in your acne treatment regimen.

Look for a serum like CALM face serum for acne and sunburn with ingredients that work together to help your skin achieve and keep optimal health:

Hyaluronic Acid

Naturally occuring in our tissue, hyaluronic acid keeps skin plump, hydrated and even glowing. But not all HA is created equal.

Some serums use hyaluronic acid that does not penetrate multiple layers, only hydrating the superficial tissue.

MOOD uses triple-weight hyaluronic acid, which allows it to permeate through multiple layers, offering deep hydration.

This is helpful in healing sunburn by reducing the chance of peeling while also keeping acne at bay.


Containing no psychoactive components of T^H^C, broad spectrum C^B^D is well tolerated by all skin types, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

For those familiar with the pain of an acne breakout or sunburn, C^B^D is the ultimate relief.

In ample qualities, C^B^D can provide relief from inflammation in as few as 15 minutes.


Serums containing vitamin C are very popular, but they often do not contain the proper amount of the substance to properly detox skin.

At 15% concentration, CALM face serum for acne and sunburn is one of the strongest on the market.

Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant to stabilize free radicals caused by UV rays. It is further aided by Vitamin E that helps nourish the newly repaired skin.
