Skin Care Tip of the Week *Sunscreen*

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Today I am going to tell you one of the most important skin care tips of them all. You should APPLY SUNSCREEN every day rain or shine. If you were to only apply one product before leaving your house this is what I suggest you don't go without. Protecting your skin from the suns harmful rays is so important.

Excessive exposure to sunlight without protecting your skin will:
  • Accelerate the normal aging process. I believe this is something ALL women want to prolong as long as possible.
  • Cause dark spots.
  • Cause lines and wrinkles.
  • Break down collagen in your skin which leads to sagging.
  • Can cause skin cancer.
I recommend using a sunscreen/moisturizer of at least an SPF 15 or higher.

My top two favorite products are:
  • Devita Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF 30. This leaves my skin feeling sooo soft. It a paraben free and uses all natural ingredients. It is also formulated for skin that is sensitive and prone to breakouts. LOVE this product.

If you have any questions relating to sunscreen you can leave them in the comment section and I will be happy to answer :)

I'm a sunscreen wearer! I used a moisturizer w/ SPF 15 and my makeup also contains SPF 15.

Excellent advice Lindsay. We have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world here and I know I should use it more often. Trouble is I always feel so clogged up with it on. I'm going to check out that Nutragena one. Thanks!

Just yesterday I was thinking to when women used to wear heats to protect themselves from the sun and when being tanned was not in fashion... Great reminder to apply sunscreen, thanks!

Great call out! I am obsessed about wearing sunscreen ... though *said sheepishly*, my main motivator is vanity {staving off wrinkles and age spots} followed by prevention of skin cancer.

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

This is the one skin routine I have stuck to since I was in middle school! I am hoping it pays off when I'm older:)

Hollie Ann said...

this is so important! is that sunscreen non comedogenic?

marina {yummy mummy} said...

totally agree 100%. I cannot believe I spent my teenage years lying in the sun baking with baby oil.
I love the spf moisturizer from Jurlique

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Hollie Ann- YES both are :)

Tonia @ TheGunnySack.com said...

I would like to try both of these. It seems link a lot of the facial sunscreens are greasy! Thanks for the tips!

That's one thing I never leave the house without! I use my Origin's SPF 30 and my Bare Minerals has some SPF as well!

a Bug and Bird said...

props to you, use that sunscreen! i live in sydney and the sun in australia and nz is intense to say the least, they have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world.

right now i'm loving a brand called Invisible Zinc. it feels smooth and light on my face and is tinted to use as a foundation as well

Such good advice. I really really need to start wearing sunscreen - I am always too lazy when I'm running out of the house but it is so important! Thanks for sharing!!!

I recently got this Neutrogena lotion, because i was looking for one with SPF! i have found it leaves my skin feeling like it has a plastic sheet over it, not so pleasant! any other sensitive skin/prone to breakout face sunscreens that are good? i have heard olay makes a good one. have you heard anything about theirs?

I LOVE DeVita sunscreen!!! It became a little pricey for me (I was buying the face only version for a year), but then I decided to try the larger whole body version. I am able to use it on my face and body with no pore clogging problems :)

Lindsay, I just found your site...wish I did before I invested in a line of Obagi products.

stefan john said...

It a paraben free and uses all natural ingredients. It is also https://www.rx247.net/retin-a.html formulated for skin that is sensitive and prone to breakouts.

The post is giving the skin care tip of the week. Useful post

I use DeVita too, but I use the Body Block. It's 3 times the size and has far more anti-aging ingredients in it such as MAP. It lasts for 4 months usually.

Mona said...

Wow, I was sceptical at first, but the second product actually ranks very low on the EWG Skin Deep database! http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/product/461169/DeVita_Natural_Skin_Care_Solar_Protective_Moisturizer%2C_SPF_30%2B/
As for myself, I don't use sunscreen these days because you are supposed to get 20 minutes of sun exposure a day (without sunscreen), and the days are short and I am indoors most of the time. But when I go out in the summer I use Badger, which has a similar low rating. I have recently ordered some zinc oxide, which is one of the "safe" active sunscreen ingredients, so I may be trying a homemade version soon!

I have used Neutrogena sun screen year around for many years. I now have small white white bumps. What can I do to get rid of them? I have recently started changing my pillowcases every other day. I also use the baking soda scrub twice a week.

if u eat a lot of tomatoes, carrots ur skin becomes better against solar burns

Cindy said...

I have a question!
How often should I keep reapplying my SPF on my face?
Personally, I'm always running around that I only apply my face on once a day, if at all!
I use a 50SPF on the bottom, then a BB Cream with 15SPF on top of it (that's all of the stuff I wear on my face). I walk around campus all day and night, and never reapply.

I just put some vitamin C pills in a blender. I added 2 capsules of CoQ10 and a couple of drops of distilled water. My skin was refreshed and super smoothe!
