Do as I say, not as I do and protect your skin this summer!
We've all made the (brutal) mistake of not re-applying or even putting on sunscreen in the first place - guilty as charged. Not only is sun damage linked to the majority of skin cancers, but it leads to pre-mature aging and eye damage. Sun damage can occur literally within minutes of being out in the sun with no protection and can continue for hours afterwards. Don't make the mistake I did this weekend and fall asleep, sans sun screen, and wake up looking like Sebastian from The Little Mermaid (if I could bathe in a tub of aloe, I would). With the depletion of our o-zone, SPF is more important than ever! Prevent sun burns or any future sun damage with these products that should be used daily:
Dermalogica Protection SPF 50 Sport
Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50
If you don't already use an SPF everyday on your face, you must start now! Religiously putting a SPF on your face - even if your foundation has an SPF in the formula - will help your skin in the long run tremendously. Use Dermalogica's Solar Defense Booster by itself or under your make-up! It contains antioxidants to help improve your skins smoothness and softness while defending it against skin-aging free radicals (these cause pre-mature aging) and sun damage. Consistently using SPF on your face will prevent brown spots/skin discoloration, reduce facial red veins & blotchiness, and slow down the development of wrinkles. Sign me up!
