My promise to you? I will never tire of dwelling on this subject! You know why? Because mastering the art of looking younger with fewer wrinkles, lines and pigmentation all goes down to one life-long commitment; religiously wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen on your face 365 days a year.. By that I mean daily; mornings and night, summer and winter, sunny or rainy, and most importantly indoors and outdoors..
We at CIIN are firm believers and worshippers of the uttmost biologically-active miracle product on the planet, however, sunscreen must be correctly committed to, otherwise you are only wasting your time, money and sacrificing your anti-aging goals all along..
Surprisingly, the number one reason for skin aging is UV rays from the sun, it’s not genetics, it’s not smoking, and it’s not even age. The sun’s rays that give off daylight is the skin’s worst enemy. A study out of Australia even showed that…
“The skin of daily sunscreen users aged a full 24% less than that of occasional wearers”.
Making it an every morning habit, just like brushing your teeth is the only guarantee to the above fact. And since you’ll be wearing it every day of the year, you must search and search until you find a formula that feels nice on the skin without being too heavy. Which brings us to the core of this article, below is an extensive outlook on how to master the art of applying sunscreen while maximizing your benefits depending on your lifestyle, habits and circumstances..
1 || Your General Go-To No-Brainer Sunscreen
Hate sunscreen? Aim for a weightless formula that provides not less than SPF 30 for younger looking skin that works beautifully under makeup without piling or balling up… CIIN recommends
2 || Your Outdoor Activities Sunscreen
Aim for a water-resistant formula that provides not less than SPF 60 which will hold up with sweating and swimming or whatever your outdoor activity involves, reapplication is key though, do so every 90 minutes.. CIIN recommends,
3 || Your Indoor, At Home Or Work Sunscreen
After applying your favorite SPF in the morning, reapplication is another commitment.. However, reapplying the same liquid SPF formula that you used first thing in the morning might not sound inviting nor feasible in the middle of the day due to the hassle that washing and reapplying involves.. That’s when you should get a powder SPF formula, one that can easily be dusted onto the skin directly over makeup or on bare skin. CIIN recommends,
4 || The Makeup Approach To Further Protect Your Skin
A clear, makeup-free and flawless face is every woman’s dream.. However, it’s time to start believing that wearing makeup on a daily basis is another extension to sunscreen that promises additional sun protection. Well now at least you have a valid excuse to why makeup is good for your skin!
5 || A Splendid Bonus Tip!
# Use a serum with both vitamin C and E to improve the photo-protective properties of your sunscreen. Recent studies showed that using a serum base of vitamins E and C under your sunscreen provides four times the protection of sunscreen alone! CIIN recommends,
Bottom line, we hate to see you reach to a point in life where you will regret not wearing sunscreen, and always remember it’s never to late to start turning back the clock on your skin.. Sunscreen in abundance is never ever TOO much! Keep that in mind…
