it is, in fact, a non-negotiable to wear SPF 30 or more during summer and winter. It doesn’t matter what the weather is actually like. The sun is out there, even if you cannot see it. You might wonder, what does this indicate? Well, simply wear your sunscreen seven days a week.
After all, at any point in time when it is light outside and you are not at home with all curtains drawn, you are getting exposed to UVA. Yes, even if there is a storm and the sun isn’t shining at all, and even if you are freezing or you are sitting behind a glass window. Unprotected UVA exposure damages your skin. Do you understand where I am trying to get with this?
As a little side note, if you have fair skin and start turning red within 3 minutes, then an SPF 30 sunscreen will, in theory, protect you for 3 x 30 = 90 minutes. An SPF 50+ sunscreen will give you at least 3 x 50 = 150 minutes protection. Therefore, reapplying is key.
I know, it is not always the most convenient to wear sunscreen. In addition, as long as you are wearing quite some clothes it is only really necessary to apply sun protection to your face. Anyhow, there is a possibility to make wearing sunscreen more convenient. Therefore, I like to apply my BB cream by Omorovicza with an added SPF 30 on a daily basis.
Just like your face, your lips can also get damaged by the sun. They might experience increased signs of ageing or get those nasty sun spots, wrinkles or just major dehydration. The Coola Mineral Liplux SPF 30 lip balm got you covered. It hydrates your lips with Cupuacu Butter and Mongongo Oil. Furthermore, it protects against sun damage with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide ingredients. My favourite part is the fact that it is available in the most beautiful colours. The colour Summer Crush is my current favourite. Therefore, it doubles as a beautifully scented lipstick. Additionally, the balm is non-toxic and contains 70%+ certified organic ingredients. It’s a win-win situation.
To be honest, I am already looking forward to applying further Coola products on my whole body and face. I am thinking about the SPF 50 Guava Mango Sunscreen Spray and the SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer to begin with.
