3 Ways to Make It Easy to Commit to Sun Protection
Posted January 09, 2018
The first few weeks of January are flooded with articles about how to achieve your New Year’s resolutions. Every gym is packed with those desperate to take off those extra holiday pounds, and most of us are probably more focused this month maintaining our household budgets. Why not refocus some of your energy onto something so simple, yet so important for your health? Wearing sun protection every day and reapplying every two hours has been proven to reduce the signs of aging and prevent skin cancer.
Here are three ways to make committing to sun protection and reapplication easy:
Combine Your Skin Care and Cosmetics with Your SPF
When it comes to the health of your skin, nothing is more vital than sun protection. That’s why we’ve included broad spectrum 100% mineral SPF in our treatments and cosmetics. By layering your sun protection, this ensures complete coverage for your skin throughout the day. You already wear foundation and lip color, so why not choose products that also shield your skin from sun damage?
“Colorescience® fits in beautifully with my lifestyle as a busy mom of two boys. I am not a makeup person, but I put on Even Up and some mascara, and I’m out the door,” says Kristen Jacobs, MD, Ooh La La.
“If you care about how you look, if you care about your health, sunscreen must be part of your daily routine, multiple times per day. A busy woman is not going to take twenty minutes to take her makeup off, reapply her sunscreen, and put her makeup back on. She needs to be quick, so the Sunforgettable® Brush-on Sunscreen is so easy because you can take ten seconds and it makes your makeup look better without missing a beat,” says Dr. Jeff Birchall, MD, Dermacare of Rancho Bernardo.
Keep a Brush in Your Car, Gym Bag and Purse
The #1 sunscreen brush in the nation, Sunforgettable® Brush-on Sunscreen is a true game changer when it comes to applying and reapplying sun protection. Swirl on instant mineral sun protection with our self-dispensing brush – no mess, no waiting. Apply it right on top of your makeup to reduce shine and touch up your foundation throughout the day. Keep a brush in your car, your purse and your gym bag to ensure you’re never left unprotected.
“Before I head home, I’m going to reapply my sunscreen in the car. It’s a fantastic way to reapply your sunscreen on the go,” says Dr. Allison Arthur, of Sand Lake Dermatology
“Layering sunscreen is a concept that is unique. Nobody wants to put a really thick, lotion sunscreen on top of another thick, lotion sunscreen. That’s what’s so nice with the mineral base. It can be easily reapplied. There are very few sunscreens that you can actually apply and say ‘Hey I look better!” says Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Janet Turkle, MD.
Set a Reminder on Your Phone
Who doesn’t have their cell phone with them at all times these days? Now there’s no excuse to forget to reapply your sunscreen. Simply set a reminder on your phone to reapply our Brush-on Sunscreen every two hours.
“You can’t reapply any other SPF throughout the day, but with this you can all day long. It has a really pretty finish as well,” says influencer SugarPuffAndFluff.
Now that you have these simple tips, we hope you will join us in making sun protection a commitment for 2018. Cheers to a healthy new year!
