Hello, my loves!
The warmer weather is creeping up on us quickly and when the sun is out we need protection. Even though the sun is out we need to wear sun block no matter what time of year it is.
I thought I’d do a quick informational blog post on the reasons we need sunscreen and how to use it properly.
First of all, there are two types of sunscreen on the market. First there is a mineral sunscreen, which lays on top of your face to cause a physical barrier from the sun. One benefit of mineral sunscreen is it works immediately after applied.
Then, there is chemical sunscreen, which provides deep skin protection by releasing sun’s heat from your body. It takes up to twenty minutes to start working so you need to be aware of that.
Overall, it is up to you to choose which type of sunscreen is better for your skin.
It is recommended to at least use thirty spf or more on a daily basis.
Remember to apply enough sunscreen before starting your day. It is important you truly cover every inch of your face and skin that is being revealed.
Also, try not to forget to reapply every two hours to keep constant protection.
Sunscreen can help prevent wrinkles or aging spots, so if you’re looking to keep glowing and healthy skin it is necessary to wear on a daily basis.
The sunscreen I am using now is from Trader Joe’s and is an spf 30 for body and face. I’ve noticed it has not broken me out or made my skin shiny after applied. I also use a Coppertone body spray for my body with spf 50.
Also, be aware of expired sunscreens, they will do little for you if applied.
I hope you enjoyed my post. I know it was brief but it is just meant to be an overview of sunscreen and the ways you can use it. Enjoy the weather and stay protected!
