Even if you know it already, here is another friendly reminder of the importance of using SPF in your skincare everyday. Yes, even in Winter… SPF protection will help you keep your skin healthy, youthful and glowing forever and ever!
As the name indicates, it is a sun protection. UV light can severely damage your skin, that’s why it is crucial to wear SPF everyday. I am sure you don’t want to get skin cancer. Keeping your skin safe will pay off on the long term.
A common misconception is the belief that tanning will even out your skin tone. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Indeed, by not protecting dark spots, acne scars or hyperpigmentation you will only turn these spots darker. Even if you notice that your skin looks better during summer keep using SPF to protect the amazing asset that is your face.
The best anti-aging trick I know of. Wearing sunscreen is proven to help avoid the causes of premature wrinkles and fine lines caused by sun exposure. For this reason, apply an SPF of 30 or 50 on your face, neck, décolletage and hands at all times. Prevention is better than having to take action later on things you could have easily avoided.
Here are a few of my all time favorite SPF products:
- Darphin products are my favorite, I use Soleil Plaisir SPF 50 on a daily basis. However, if I intend to wear make up I use Intral so that my skin is primed, protected from UV lights and pollution. They don’t make you white which is a plus for me as I hate to look pale.
- Coola I discovered last summer in Lausanne, I recommend very highly their products are extremely efficient and good for you and the planet!
- Shiseido, it’s a love story that goes way back now but I am honestly very fond of their products my absolute favorite being showcased above. The Essential Energy Day Cream smells divine, the texture is smooth and the feeling perfect I couldn’t recommend it enough!
