HOW I PROTECT MY SKIN ALL YEAR LONG
July 30th, 2018
One thing I have learned over the years is how important it is not only to protect my skin during the summer but all year long. Being someone who is active outdoors from playing tennis, training for half marathons to running errands on the weekends it’s important to protect my skin regardless of the season. As much as I love a sun-kissed glow, I care about the health of my skin much more! I care about it’s longevity and protecting it from harmful uv rays. I wasn’t always great about wearing sunscreen when I was younger(always listen to your mom!) but now it is one step in my daily routine I never skip! Now I’m much more aware of all the preventative measures I can take to not only keep my skin looking fresh but also free of skin cancer which is the main priority. Finding a sunscreen that protects and helps maintain healthy skin without causing breakouts can be tough and trial and error isn’t fun. When I first began looking for an everyday SPF I took advice from my dermatologist who recommended I use EltaMD Sunscreen everyday under my make-up, on my hands and any other exposed areas. It turns out my dermatologist isn’t alone since EltaMD is the #1 Dermatologist-recommended professional sunscreen brand and for good reason. EltaMD is sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, noncomedogenic and provides UVA/UVB sun protection.
When I’m outdoors being active I opt for the EltaMD clear spf but on days I’m heading to work I’ll use EltaMD tinted spf. EltaMD UV Daily has hyaluronic acid to boost moisture retention and diminish fine lines. It’s extremely lightweight with UV protection and can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer or under makeup which is how I use it 5 days out of the week. Since I began using EltaMD nearly six years ago I’ve never experienced any skin concerns or breakouts caused by the formula. Remember that sun protection isn’t just for the summer season so make sure to guard your skin against the sun by incorporating these products into your daily beauty routine.
