All About Sunblock: The Do’s and Don’ts of SPF

You’ve heard it before, but I’m saying it again: don’t forget your SPF! Even though summer is coming to an end, it’s SO important to keep wearing sunblock in the fall and winter months. The sun is one of the worst offenders for prematurely aging skin and SPF is proven to help combat sun damage. It’s safe to use for all skin types, ages and ethnicities, so no excuses! Keep reading for more tips and tricks for making sunscreen part of your routine.

Don’t Skip SPF!

I know you have enough to worry about with your daily skincare and makeup routine. But don’t skip the SPF! To save some time, try a tinted SPF like my Pure Physical Tinted SPF 44. This amazing formula is a physical sunscreen that features a moisturizing base with a sheer, universal tint beneficial for most skin types and ALL ethnicities. That way, you can skip the foundation while still having light coverage AND SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Watch the video to see what a difference it makes. Don’t you love that glow?! 

Avoid These 3 Common Sunscreen Mistakes!

  1. USE ENOUGH!!! You need 2 fingers worth of sunscreen per body part.
  2. APPLY PRIOR!!! Always apply sunscreen 30 mins before sun exposure because the active ingredients need time to actually ACTIVATE! (Not true for physical SPF)
  3. REAPPLY!!! As much as I would love to tell you that sunscreen sticks like glue, it absolutely doesn’t. Our skin absorbs it and water/sweat rinses it off. This means you need to reapply every 90 mins and every time you get out of the water.

You Can Still Have a Tan!

Using sunscreen doesn’t mean sacrificing a tan. With my Sun Bum Foaming Self‑Tanner, you can rock an amazing tan all year round, anywhere in the world! This buildable, streak‑free formula develops in 4‑6 hours for a long‑lasting, natural-looking tan without sun damage. So, keep covered up on sunny days with a cute hat, sunglasses, and SPF, since you’re already bronzed and beautiful!
