I don't know of anyone who will welcome unnecessary wrinkles and skin cancer into their lives, but that is exactly what we may be doing if we are not protecting ourselves with an spf. The sun is good for us but the uvb and uva rays emitted from the sun may not love us in return. UVB is the ultra violet radiation that targets the outer layer of our skin, it is also the culprit behind sunburn. UVA rays bypass surface damage and travel deeper into our skin. UVB rays are said to do the most damage between the hours of 10-2:00 while UVA rays work throughout the day.
Don’t be a Victim
We are not powerless we can protect ourselves as much as possible and we can start by using an spf. SPFs will block these harmful rays, but it is often required that we reapply the spf several times during the day, especially when we know we will be frolicking in the sun.
Myth- People of color don't need an spf. This is an old myth that many people believed for so long but it is false, we need an spf just like everyone else. It is recommended that you use at least spf 30 instead of spf 15 which was promoted for so many years.
I tried my best to remind myself to wear spf but it became torturous when each spf that I tried seemed to be so heavy that it would make my skin look dull or like I had white reside on my face.
Finally, I found Lancaster's SPF 30 for delicate skin which allows me to keep my glow without leaving behind any evidence that I am wearing and spf. Lancaster's delicate skin SPF 30 can be used on your face and body. This is by far my favorite spf product...if only I could remember to always put it on!!!
You can purchase this spf for a mere $24 for a 4.2oz tube.
Which SPF do you use? (If you can, please provide the product name and the number associated with the spf product that you use. Thanks)
