Beauty Tip: Use Sun Protection! And if you already do, it’s time to upgrade!
Probably, you are already tired of hearing about SPF and sunscreen. Nowadays, you have to be blind and deaf not to know how damaging sun rays are for your skin. However, there are still people who sunbathe, go to solariums and don’t have SPF in their daily moisturizer. So, let us say it once again. Sun is the main cause of premature skin aging. Protect your skin from its destructive rays and you will not see wrinkles and sun spots for a long time to come.
* Wear SPF all year round. You may go down to SPF 15-20 for late autumn winter but remember to upgrade to SPF 30 with the first bright spring rays and for the summer.
* Make sure you block both UVA (aging rays with wavelength 320-400 nanometers) and UVB (burning rays with wavelength of 280-320 nanometers). Take note of these two ingredients that cover the widest wave spectrum: Zinc Oxide and Mexoryl.
* Remember, SPF protection in your makeup is not enough. Make sure your moisturizer has SPF or wear sunblock even though your powder may have SPF 20.
* It’s impossible to block sunrays with a sunscreen 100%, that’s why add additional protection by wearing wide brim hat, sunglasses and sticking to the shade.
