The Low Down on SPF
Now-a-days it’s no secret that SPF is an important, if not the most important step in your skincare routine; yet, there are people out there who still don’t wear it, who still don’t “click” with the reasons why you need to wear it, and those who just don’t take their skincare seriously. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. It is indeed so important to have an all-star SPF in your routine. If there could be one thing to change or add to your routine it would be sunscreen. Even if your skincare steps are only...ehem, one step (washing your face with bar soap...eeeekk the horror)! We must insist that you at least add sun protection to your daily routine. Why are there so many things we need to do to our skin you may find yourself asking… Well, to put it simply, our skin is the largest organ of our body, and it’s on the exterior! This means our skin is like a giant sponge absorbing elements around us that we cannot see. You can’t see UVA or UVB rays, you can’t see free radicals, and you can’t see airborne germs. BUT, just like you can’t see the air you breathe, you know you need it right? In turn, just because you can’t see the harmful elements doesn’t mean they can’t hurt you. There is a pretty simple statistic that will hopefully give you an Oprah style “Ah-Ha” moment.
That is a huge range of prevention that is EASY to do!
First up is Shade SPF 30. This broad spectrum mineral SPF provides the ultimate protection utilizing both Zinc and Titanium Dioxide. The best part of Shade is that it is also a moisturizer. That means it’s perfect for those who don’t like a whole lotta fuss in their skincare routine. This will give you two steps in one! Arnica Extract, Goji Berry and Cranberry Extract AND Passion Fruit Oil protects your skin in the most luxurious way. Arnica helps heal the skin from bruising and current sun damage, while Goji Berry, Cranberry, and Passion Fruit Oil provide a whole variety of antioxidants, moisture, free radical protection, and antibacterial/microbial benefits (perfect for those who struggle with acne).
Second on base is Protect. This sheer SPF 30 is gluten-free and vegan giving you ultimate protection from Zinc Oxide. Witch Hazel, Sunflower Oil and Grapefruit Oil treat your skin to light hydration, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and soothing properties. This lightweight SPF wears beautifully under makeup and never feels greasy!
The best part about both of our SPF’s is that they don’t smell like an SPF! They smell quite divine, and never feel thick or goopy.
