While we think you ought to be wearing sunscreen year round, we like to remind our clients that it is VERY important to wear it during the summer months. We know you want to get some summer color, but the sun will seriously damage your skin- so slather on some all-natural sunscreen before heading out of doors.
Here are a few things to look for when picking a sunscreen to wear.
- Broad Spectrum SPF 30 or Higher
- Blocks Both UVA and UVB rays
- Natural Sunscreen Using Zinc Oxide**
** avoid sunscreens that use a variety of chemicals for protection.
We are partial to PCA Skin’s Weightless Protection because you can apply it right before you put on make-up. Remember to put it on 30 minutes before you go outside and to get those easily forgotten places like ears, hands, feet, and underarms.
Don’t forget your hat and polarized sunglasses either!
