I'm not sure I've ever seen ANYONE teach you this specific change before you get started with trying to protect your skin... yet it holds the KEY to your success! In this article, not only will you discover how this change can super-charge your sun-damage-prevention efforts, but you'll also discover why it is critical if you want to bypass the mistakes most women make.
You've probably heard that you should always wear sunscreen at the beach so that you don't get burned.
That is good advice!
However, there is a lot of skin damage that can occur before your skin gets burned.
When you're out at the beach (or swimming at the local pool), you are in direct sunlight for most of the time. That's because the sunlight comes from the sun above you and the reflection off the water. That means wearing a hat or hiding under an umbrella is just not enough...
You have to put sunscreen on your skin to protect yourself from all angles.
But won't this keep me from getting my beautiful tan?
No, it won't!
If you correctly apply (and reapply) sunscreen, your skin will still tan but at a slower rate. That is a good thing because tanning slower means your body has more time to adjust to the sun exposure. That kind of gradual tanning is less damaging to your skin, and you retain your tan for longer if you do it this way.
(Even if you already have ridiculously fair skin, like I do!)
What's the minimum level of SPF you should have when you're out at the beach?
Many experts say that a minimum of SPF 30 is required for proper protection while at the beach.
Personally, I've found that a minimum of SPF 60 is better for me because it protects my skin, does not let me burn, and gets my gradual tan.
So now you're probably asking,
"That's great for when I'm out at the beach, but what about a daily sunscreen? How do I protect myself on a daily basis?"
This is an excellent question because all of the same concerns apply.
Your skin still gets a lot of damage during those daily commutes because the sun comes through your sunroof and reflects from the glass and hoods of the cars around you.
Sunlight from every angle again!
But since you're not out in the sun as much, you don't need SPF 50 or even SPF 30...
At Swiss Botany, we've found that SPF 22 is enough to protect your skin from daily exposure and keep you looking great for years to come.
To recap, wear sunscreen to keep your skin looking great!
How much should you use?
- Wear SPF 30+ sunscreen when you go to the beach...
- Wear sunscreen SPF 22 daily
So there you have it! The ONE change you need to make for beautiful, healthy skin for years to come.
By the way, if you're a woman and you're serious about sun damage prevention, and you really want to have beautiful, healthy skin for years to come, this sunscreen called "DAY PROTECT SPF 22" will help you do just that and more!
