My tried and true SPF favorites!
As the weather starts to warm up, our time spent outdoors and in the sun is likely to increase. I have always placed a high level of importance on sunscreen and protecting my skin from skin cancer, skin damage, and aging. Sunscreen application is a part of my daily skincare routine year round, but I implement even more added protection during the spring/summer months. In Texas, the sun is INTENSE and definitely requires skin protection. In recent years I’ve discovered additional ways to protect my skin from the sun and have started implementing clothing items with UVP like hats, shirts, and coverups. I’ve tried SO MANY sunscreen products, so I’ve gathered my list of tried and true favorites. When finding the right sunscreen for me, I look for products that I can add into my routine without disturbing my other skincare and makeup.
Did you know that SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor? This is how long it would take the sun to burn your skin with the sunscreen applied as directed, compared to how long it would take to burn if you aren’t using any sunscreen. For instance, if you’re using a product with an SPF of 30, it will take the sun 30 times longer to burn you than if you had no product. You can read more about the benefits of sunscreen and best practices HERE. I keep a variety of SPF on hand from SPF 30 to SPF 70. I stock sunscreens of different consistencies: spray, cream, and oil. I also make sure to have a special sunscreen for the face and lips.
