Early civilizations used a variety of plant extracts to help protect their skin from the sun’s harmful rays. At some point in our lives, we have all been told the importance of sunscreen. Maybe what we forget is that sunscreen is necessary all year round, not just on summer days or on your vacay to the beach. As long as there is daylight, the UV rays are in full action.
Today there are what seems like endless sunscreen products on the market. With advancements in technology, now you can actually place your face into a machine and see the sun damage on your skin that has not surfaced yet. If you’ve ever tried this, you know how horrifying it can be, even if you have taken general care of your skin. Whether you’re a skincare fanatic or not, it’s ever so tempting to see just how much damage there is. If nothing else, it’s a very motivating way to whip you into a more conscious state of what is happening to your skin.
Although we are well aware of these harmful side effects caused by our much-adored sun, many of us often don’t protect ourselves. Why not?
The most common excuses are no time and forgetting to apply it. Others say the texture and white tint of traditional sunscreens discourage them from applying it. I have to say, most of this is somewhat valid. Not to mention that you can’t exactly reapply it over makeup, even though according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, all sunscreens should be reapplied every 2 hours. It’s too much fuss and mess for most people. But isn’t your skin worth protecting?
That’s why we feel delighted to have found ColoreScience Sunforgettable SPF 50. It’s a must-have item! Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-On Shield SPF 50 is the only 100% non-chemical brush-on shield that can be applied on-the-go and over makeup all throughout the day. It is a physical protection against UVA and UVB rays. Once you have tried it, you won’t go back to what seems like outdated sunscreen. There is so much we love about Sunforgettable. We love that it’s a sheer powder with a tint of colour (4 shades to choose from). It dispenses out of its built-in brush. Compact and easy to use on the go. Its so quick and easy to use that there is really no excuse for not protecting yourself. Having it in your purse makes it simple to reapply, even over makeup. This game-changer SPF provides you with an antioxidant blend to not only protect you from the sun, but also from antiradicals and pollutants.
We could all spend 10 seconds swiping a powder brush over our face. Especially when the benefits are the longevity of our skin health. It’s funny how doing something so quick and simple can make you feel good about doing something beneficial for yourself. Self-care stimulates a special kind of positive feeling.
