Sunscreen is a must!

Here are a few tips that might help you when it comes to sunscreen.

How much is enough?
Normally all sunscreens have about 4 oz. So how long have you had yours? If it’s been over a few months, this means you are not using enough!

When to apply it?
Apply 30 minutes before heading out.

Which is best SPF 15, 30 50?
The recommendation is a sunscreen with SPF 30.  Above this you only get a 1-3 % more protection, not too much of a difference.

What to look for?
Ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide (will activate much faster.) Broad Spectrum. Always verify the validation dates.

What to avoid?
Avoid sunscreens containing ingredients like Parabens, Oxybenzone, and fragrance.

Always use sunscreen don’t rely on the coverage your make-up offers. Remember to apply it on the face, neck (front &back) and ears too. We normally don’t put makeup on all these areas, if you do Congratulations!

This will avoid skin cancer, sunburns, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines. So why not take the time for it.
