You must have heard that you can prevent fine lines and wrinkles if you apply SPF (facial moisturizers with SPF or basic sunscreen) regularly. This is very true because the UV rays from the sun do not only cause painful sunburns but also cause lasting damage to the skin.
So if you protect your skin from these harmful rays, you’re off to a great start!
Applying SPF should be a non-negotiable step in your daily routine but the way you apply it is perhaps just as important as applying it daily, which is exactly what we are going to enlighten you about.
30 Minutes Before Going Out
Doing so has been recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as the best method for using these products. This is so because it helps these products to be completely absorbed by the dry skin and not get rubbed off by your clothes.
When you apply SPF, you should make sure to cover your ears, face, neck and upper chest. You should also make sure you use these products even before applying any other product or make-up.
According to the clothes you have decided for today, you should plan the application over the body. Think about which parts of your skin will be exposed to these harmful UV rays. After all, we don’t want our bodies to age either do we?
Apply and Reapply
If you’re going to be out in the sun all day, then you should consider reapplying SPF products ever 2 or 3 hours. This could be done especially if there is sweating or swimming in the mix. Also remember, reapplication needs to be done in an exact manner as the initial application.
Follow these sunscreen tips correctly, and your beautiful skin will experience maximum protection!
