Beauty FACT or FICTION? - SPF

Wearing SPF on a regular basis can save your life.

FACT - Sun exposure is the #1 cause of skin cancer, and wearing sunscreen (or any product with SPF regularly) can cut the chances of you getting skin cancer in half.  There are MANY types of skin cancer, and not all of them are obvious.  Check your body often for any odd looking spots or discoloration on your skin, and notify your doctor ASAP if you find any.  Sun damage is also the #1 cause of premature aging - wearing a moisturizer with SPF can help keep your skin soft and supple for longer!

You only need to wear sunscreen when you’re going to the beach.

FICTION - There’s a reason cosmetics companies are putting SPF in everything nowadays.  UV rays can penetrate your skin EVERY day… in the winter, when it’s cloudy, when you’re walking to your car, while you’re sitting next to a window… so it’s smart to protect your skin no matter what it is you’re doing.  

One ounce of sunblock is the correct amount for your entire body.

FACT - An entire ounce of traditional cream sunscreen is the recommended amount for covering the average person’s body to achieve the amount of Sun Protection indicated by the SPF on the bottle.  That’s a LOT more than you’d think (most foundation bottles contain only 1 ounce of product)… in fact, it’s kind of impossible to glob on a layer that thick.  But, the less sunscreen you use, the less effective and more spotty your sun protection will be. Avoid the headache by simply layering your SPF… smooth a thin layer all over your skin, allow it to dry, and then apply a second layer.  This will help the SPF absorb fully, so you get all the protection without all of the grease!  Bonus Fact:  It takes a full tablespoon to cover just your face properly!

Waterproof sunscreen isn’t actually waterproof.

FACT - Although “waterproof” sunscreens will hold up better on the beach than non-waterproof versions, you will still have to reapply your sunscreen every time you get out of the water.

The SPF you apply in the morning is good enough to last you all day.

FICTION - Read the back of any product that contains SPF, and it will tell you that you must reapply every 2 hours in order to maintain adequate sun protection!  That seems like a lot of reapplying, I know, but if you’re going to be out in the sun, reapplying is very important!  Pick a lightweight sunscreen or makeup product with SPF so that layering isn’t a difficult task throughout the day.

SPF 15 gives maximum sun protection.

FICTION - SPF 15 protects against 93%* of UV rays.  SPF 30 (it seems like it would be double the protection, right?   Nope) protects about 97%* of UV rays, and SPF 50 gives 98%* protection.  With anything above SPF 50, the difference is minimal.

*  - Statistics from the Skin Cancer Foundation website

You can layer SPFs to create a higher level of SPF.

FICTION - Putting on an SPF 15 over an SPF 30 isn’t going to give you SPF 45, you will only get the coverage of the highest SPF (in this example, 30.)  However, layering SPF is going to give you a higher concentration of your SPF, protecting you more thoroughly.

SPF causes breakouts.

FICTION - It’s not the sun protection that’s clogging your pores.  If you’re experiencing breakouts after using sunscreen, chances are you’re just using a product that’s not right for your skin type!  Just like with moisturizers, SPF products aren’t “one-size-fits-all”.  If you feel that your sunscreen IS causing you to break out, switch to an oil-free version that’s more lightweight, and/or intended for your face.  These are a thinner texture, are non comedogenic, and allow your skin to breathe!

SPF can make your face look white in pictures.

FACT - Foundations and powders with SPF in them can cause white flashback in flash photography.  The iron oxides in sunscreen (which are what helps to prevent sun damage) have a reflective quality.  For special events, pick a matte foundation without SPF, or use bronzer to counteract the ghostly effect.  You will still be able to use an SPF underneath your makeup without having to worry!

People with dark skin don’t need to wear sunscreen.

FICTION - Dark skin tones are still affected by the sun’s damaging UV rays. Darker skin can still develop skin cancer (in fact, certain types of skin cancer are ONLY found on people of color), and UV rays will age dark skin just as much as light skin.  It’s important to protect yourself!  If you’re worried about white, creamy sunscreens turning your skin ashy looking, pick instead an oil sunscreen - they’re just as effective, but are colorless and absorb quickly into the skin.

3 Reasons to Use Eye Cream, No Matter Your Age

1.  Eye cream protects and heals the delicate, thin skin surrounding your eyes. The skin underneath and around your eyes is some of the thinnest on your body, which means that area is subjected to more damage and sensitivity!  Eye creams are specifically designed to prevent irritation of the eyes and to help strengthen the skin to prevent damage, dryness, and aging.  This is important in your teens as well as through your 40’s and beyond!

2.  Eye cream with SPF will help prevent sun damage and skin cancer.  Because the skin near your eyes is so thin, it is much more susceptible to burning and long-term damage due to sun exposure.  If you go tanning, it is INCREDIBLY important to wear SPF (it is for everyone else, too!), and if you want to help prevent crows feet, dark circles, and sagginess around your eyes, get a nice eye cream with at least SPF 15.  In a few years you’ll be so happy you did!

3.  Your eye makeup will look 10x better if you apply eye cream beforehand.  If you’ve ever had concealer or foundation crease up underneath your eyes, or if your dark circles are prominent even after you’ve tried to cover them, you NEED eye cream in your life.  Applying just a small amount a couple of minutes before you apply your makeup will help smooth and plump the skin underneath your eye, and will help your makeup stay in place and look more natural.

“I was encouraged by my fans to not wear so much makeup,” Zendaya revealed. “You know, especially being a teenager, we like to think that we need makeup every day, even for going to school—like, I can’t go outside without my eyeliner. It’s weird! I don’t know why we do that. So, I enforced this whole natural thing.”

Zendaya shared out her beauty secrets with Seventeen Magazine, giving out what products she uses for her skin and lips.

  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
  • Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes
  • Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes

anonymous asked:

skincare essentials? i'm still trying to sort out my skincare routine and i love hearing recs from people to look into 🌹❣️

For moisturizer in the mornings I use the Boscia glotion or the Ole Henriksen sheer transformation along with the the May Coop Raw Sauce. At night I use the drunk elephant glycolic and the tata Harper repairative moisturizer and the May Coop again or a small layer of the Benton Snail Bee essence.

For cleanser in the mornings I use the Tata Harper regenerating cleanser or the Kate Somerville goat cleanser. At night time I use the Tatcha cleansing oil. I use the Ole Henrikson complexion sponges too! They’re my favorites ones to use currently. Before I wash my face at night I use a Neutrogena makeup removing wipe (the plain blue package)

After I wash my face I apply the Jurlique balancing mist! Always.

Whenever my skin is looking a little dull I use the Sunday Riley Luna oil or the Ole Henrikson truth oil but honestly any vitamin c oil will work!

For exfoliating I use the Exfolikate or the Ole Henrikson power peels. I’ve tried the Dr Dennis Gross and they’re pretty good too. I just got the neogen bio-peel gauze peels and I’m so excited to try them!

If I get pimples I use the PTR acne dots and the Mario Badescu drying lotion.

I think that’s it but I’m about to change it up for winter 💖😉
