Sun Care For Spring & Summer: Green Beauty Experts’ Tips

Hot girl summer is fast approaching and spring is already here. The days are filled with sunshine, and time spent outdoors. It is therefore vital to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Incorporating sun protection into your daily routine is as vital as anti-aging skincare is for your skin. Using combative measures is of little use after the sun has already damaged your skin.

Sun protection products should be the be-all and end-all of your daily skincare routine. Be sure not to focus solely on the areas that are most susceptible to sunburn but on your overall body and hair which should be protected as well with hats, caps and cover-ups.

1. Day cream with SPF

UV or Ultraviolet radiations are the invisible rays from the sun that can burn the skin, and cause skin cancer. Exposure to UV rays may cause premature aging of the skin and signs of sun damage such as wrinkles, leathery skin, liver spots, and persistent acne scars.

Due to obvious reasons, the face is the most susceptible part of the body that can be damaged by UV rays; therefore it must be protected at all costs!

Daily use of a day cream with SPF 15 or above is recommended to prevent premature skin aging. The main function of SPF is to protect the skin against UV rays.

2. SPF for the eyes

One of the most sensitive areas of the skin is the area around your eyes because of the thinness of the skin. And this is the area that is often neglected and most susceptible to UV damage.

For the area around your eyes a gentler form of SPF is recommended.
The gentler SPF is beneficial to the delicate eye area, especially if you are a using more stronger, photosensitive ingredients and chemicals such as a retinol at night -which can make you more sun-sensitive.

3. Sun protection for the lips

At this point you probably know you’re supposed to slather yourself in sunscreen with at least SPF 15 every time you leave the house. But do you know your lips needs sunscreen too?

The lips are perhaps the most at-risk part of the face for UV damage because they are the most exposed to the sun. Most of the time we forget that the lips should be protected from the sun, just as any other body part. Applying sunscreen to your lips is crucial – especially the lower lip, because it faces upwards, towards the sun.
