we all know that sun damage is bad for our skin. not only can it cause premature aging, lines, wrinkles, freckles, and sun spots. ultra violet light causes skin cancer. this is such widespread knowledge that now most make up and moisturizers have sunscreen in them
but did you know...
that if you are not using at least a teaspoon of your spf make up, or moisturizer you are not getting the sun protection factor listed on the bottle. infact, it drops as low as spf 2 vs spf 15 you think you are getting.
so slather that spf on because if you arent using a teaspoon you might as well not be using it at all.
if you dont wear make up, you should still be applying sunscreen to your face and neck every day.
a handy way to carry some spf in your purse is using a sunscreen stick - such as clarins sun control stick - use this on areas that get extra exposure like the top of your forehead, and the bridge of your nose.
