Summer is Gone, jerseys are coming out and skin care regimens must change.
The cold months can be harsh on our skin. Dryness, reactions and using products incorrectly.
I have stressed how it is important to always protect our skin from the elements in summer , Winter. Any season for that fact. Sunscreen is a must at all times, even if you can not see the sun.
Often I am asked for suggestions and I always give advice based on my experience. There are many products out there manufacturing sunscreens and sun protections, but on my recommendation I would suggest that you try Nu Skin’s 180 degrees UV block Hydrator (SPF 18).
Remember; the right sunscreen used properly is the key factor in protecting your skin. Items such as lipgloss, makeup and lotions that are labeled with SPF protection are also considered sunscreens.
Here are some 8 researched facts about protecting ourselves against harmful rays from the sun:
- stay in the shade when possible, and wear sun protective clothing like hats and sunglasses
- use sunscreen every day all year round, even if it is a cloudy day.
- SPF stands for Sin Protection Factor and indicates the estimated time you will be protected from the sun. If you burn in 10 minutes without sunscreen, an SPF 15 sunscreen will provide you with protection for approximately 15 times longer or 150 minutes.
- Look for a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays (broad spectrum protection). Many sunscreens do not protect against UVA radiation.
- It is recommended to reapply sunscreen on exposed skin every 2 hours- or more frequently if swimming or perspiring.
- Even people with darker skin pigmentation should wear sunscreen.
- you should have your skin checked at least once a year. UVA rays can cause sun spots, wrinkles and pre-mature aging.
- Although skin care products can help reduce the appearance of damage to the skin, they do not compare to preventing sun damage in the first place.
I have touched on this in some of my previous blogs and youtube videos, please do inform yourselves and keep caring for your skin.
If you do try out Nu Skin’s 180 degrees UV block hydrator, please let me know how it goes.
