Stay Sun Safe this Fall
Just because Summer is over, doesn’t mean your sunscreen should be packed up with your sandals. In fact, sunscreen should be incorporated into your daily skincare routine 365 days a year. If it’s cloudy, windy and rainy, many of us assume we are safe from the sun’s harmful rays, but sadly, this doesn't ring true. Believe it or not, some weather conditions actually make your skin more vulnerable to the sun’s powerful UV rays.
Why is sunscreen so important to begin with? Simply because it’s the best defense available for your skin. It protects your skin against harmful UV rays that may cause early signs of aging, such as: wrinkles, sun spots and sagging. Wearing sunscreen daily can help keep your skin looking young, beautiful and vibrant by blocking out the damaging UVA and UVB rays.
Some sunscreen tips to live by are:
Choose a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher (sensitive skin may need a higher SPF)
Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before sun exposure to allow time for absorption into the skin
Don’t forget to lather smaller exposed areas like your hands, feet and ears
Reapply sunscreen every two hours – especially during prolonged exposure – and always after swimming or sweating.
Colder weather doesn’t always mean less sun so make sure that you protect yourself from UVA and UVB rays year round. Fitting an adequate SPF into your skincare regimen is a must, no matter the temperature or weather conditions. Incorporating a sunscreen into your daily skincare mix is worth it.
Below are 3 sunscreen products we recommend to protect your skin this year:

It leaves your complexion looking smooth, radiant and flawless. We also love how it is available in a selection of shades to suit all skin tones.
