Sunscreen first before anything else

Many women come up to me asking about sunscreen.

Here are some things to think about before buying your sunscreen products this summer.

  • First and foremost sunscreen should be the number-one part of your beauty regimen.
  • Chemicals in sunscreen that protect you from UV rays are susceptible to sun damage.
  • Natural sunscreens don't break down in the sun like chemical sunscreens
  • Research has shown the only sunscreens that don’t break down when exposed to the sun are the physical ones, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. 
  • Consumers using zinc and titanium sunscreen products are exposed to 20 percent less UVA radiation than those using sunscreens without these ingredients.
  • Sunscreens should be used all year long, if there is sun there is possible sun damage.
  • Find a sunscreen that feels good on your skin. If you don't like the texture, you won’t use it.
  • Cover all skin that’s going to be exposed to the sun.
  • If you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, sweating or swimming, reapply the sunscreen every 1 - 2 hours.
  • If you use chemical sunscreens, remember that you must reapply every two hours you’re out in the sun even if you’re not sweating or swimming.
