Good Morning Beautiful Friends! Winter is now upon us (!?!) and I’d like to discuss my current favourite skincare product – sunscreen.
Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies so it may come as no surprise to learn that it is affected by seasonal changes, and it may need different products or ingredients at different times.
Winter brings freezing outdoor temperatures and contrasting heated and dry indoor air. This can wreak havoc on your skin! The increased need for moisture is very, very real but my current favourite product is Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50 pure mineral brush-on sunscreen!
For starters, it is a mineral sunscreen so it effectively protects against BOTH UVA and UVB rays (see my blog post, A Brief Overview On SPF).
This means that I can be confident that my skin is being protected against sun damage, photoaging, wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines that are all caused by UV exposure.
Let me share the top 5 reasons why I love Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen.
I do my very best to practice what I preach when it comes to sun protection and reapplication every 2-3 hours. As a busy mom and business owner, however, I am often out and about. I generally don’t want to use my hands to reapply a cream sun protection when I haven’t had the opportunity to wash them beforehand – especially now that we are entering cold and flu season!!. When it’s time to reapply, I just whip out my handy brush-on applicator and voila! I’m protected against sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.
It’s Long Lasting
I have had my current tube open since the end of May. That’s 6 months and there is still plenty left in the tube. I’m not sure how long it would last if this were the ONLY sunscreen that I use, but I definitely apply it at least 10 times per week.
It’s Great For Travelling
TSA doesn’t care about it. This is an advantage for anyone who does a lot of air travel. Although airport security strictness varies amongst airports, you don’t want to have anything that’s going to cramp your beauty routine. This product doesn’t count as a liquid so you can stash it in your bag and use your liquid allowance on other things! Now you can focus on your vacation instead of worrying about future fine lines and wrinkles.
It Doesn’t Dry You Out
I have dry skin naturally. I use hydrating products even in the heat of summer. Initially, when I was approached about the Colorescience Brush-On Sunscreen I was very dubious and thought that the powder texture would dry me out further. I am very happy to report that this is not the case at all! I can reapply it all day long and it doesn’t exacerbate my dry skin.
It’s Family Friendly
I love using this product on my husband and toddler. Neither of them complains (too much) when I sneak-attack them with the brush tip. A big win
These are just some of the advantages to using ColoreScience Sunforgettable Brush-On sunscreen.
Everyone who has purchased it loves it and I’m sure you would love it too. Feel free to come and test the product at our clinic.
