Protecting your skin with antioxidants and sunscreen? Amazing your skin is fully protected for… 2 hours! We know, we know protecting our skin from the biggest detrimental skin factor ( FYI UV light) requires so much concentration and commitment. Thankfully, the sunscreen beauty market is well aware of the short life of sunscreen on our skin and have developed some incredible products that can be easily used on your skin at any point of the day.
SPF mist is one of our favorite skincare products of all time! They are so easy to use and don’t require a full “ let me pour some sunscreen on top of my make-up” moment. Having said that, they do have a different texture from traditional water mist; so don’t expect a super clean and fresh feeling as it will have a different texture. Don’t forget that this is a good sign as it means that your skin is well covered. Our rule: mist it on your skin 2 hours after your morning sunscreen or 10 min after being outside in the sun ( this should be your new BFF for outside lunches)
For those who are already dealing with oiliness and congestion, especially in summer, and don’t want to layer ANOTHER product on top of their skin, SPF powders can be a great alternative. Not only they help to control oil and sweat production they also give a little color to the skin; like a foundation pick me up.
Hats and sunglasses
Don’t forget that protecting your skin with SPF doesn’t mean that it is “sun-proof”. Adding an extra layer to your skin, a hat to create shade and sunglasses is the most efficient way to ensure maximum protection. This should be an essential “add-on” for those with certain skin conditions such as acne, rosacea but also concerned about their skin’s pigmentation level.
