Summer is upon us and weekends spent out enjoying the sun will definitely increase as July rolls around tomorrow. Everywhere it's heard that the sun is bad for you and you should layer up on sunscreen. But do we actually ever take all those statements in? Many people don't see the risk in taking in too much sun but it's actually drastic for your skin. Especially if you want to have beautiful skin when you're older.
So here are a few simple tips to keep your skin looking great:
Don't stress too much over the SPF numbers. SPF 100+ is not twice as strong as SPF 50. It's actually only a few percentages higher. So whether you have SPF 30 or SPF 70, reapply that sunscreen!
If you have sensitive skin, definitely try Supergoop! SPF 30 Sunscreen Swipes from Sephora. I received a sample from Sephora and tested the swipes out earlier this week. The swipes are non-oily and slides over your skin smoothly without leaving a white residue like other sunscreens do. With Zinc providing powerful UV protection, Green Tea reducing irritation and redness, and Vitamin E to soften the skin, Supergoop! is a great source of protection from those harmful rays that you encounter everyday.
But remember that sunscreen isn't only for the beach. If you're ever going out, even on a cloudy day, apply sunscreen to keep your skin healthy and wrinkles at bay.
Enjoy the sun (safely!)
