We all have excuses about why we don’t protect our skin from the sun. We will spend hundreds of dollars on face serums and moisturizers that promise to turn back the hands of time, but won’t take 30 seconds to spritz on a little sun screen. Those serums and moisturizers will help after the damage has already occurred, but why let it continue?!? There are so many easy and quick ways to protect yourself and most importantly, your face, from the sun!
The first and most important way to protect yourself is to use sunscreen. No more excuses about clogged pores and sticky product. You have options now. Reapply throughout the day, even if you’re not at the beach. Walking to and from your car or train, you are getting sun! This will add up. Another great way to protect yourself is to wear a hat. Hats are very fashion forward right now, so you don’t have to feel like you need to wear a big sun hat, just something that has a brim.
If you are doing outdoor activities for long periods of time, wear protective clothing and do not forget to reapply after sweating or swimming. Check the UV index in your area, so you know the severity.
Remember pale skin is beautiful and sun damage is an uphill battle. Protect yourself!
