We know we need to use sunscreen for preservation of good looking skin and for protection against skin cancer.
My recommendation is to use a minimum 25spf daily, rain or shine, with repeated applications throughout the day. In addition to a good quality spf, consider the following tips from Skin, Inc., a professional trade journal.
Pick the right shades. Avoid metal frames that can reflect more light onto the
tops of the cheeks and nose. Large plastic frames with UVA/UVB blocking lenses
Cover up and touch up. For busy working clients, reapplying sunscreen during the day might not be an option. Suggest a wide-brimmed hat when headed outside or touching up makeup with a SPF 20+ infused mineral powder.
Avoid fragrance. Perfume, cologne and heavily fragranced cosmetic
products can increase photosensitivity and hyperpigmentation. Apply
only to areas not exposed to UV radiation.
Watch your head. Apply sunscreen to the ears, hairline and the scalp, or
grab a hat if on the go.
Check expiration dates. Sunscreens expire generally after one year, when the formula’s UV filters and their efficacy breaks down. Be wary of buying the family size sunscreens, as product may be wasted if it is tossed yearly.
