Would you believe that just over half of all women (52%) would give themselves a grade of C or lower when it comes to their sun protection habits? Why? It has a lot to do with the sunscreen that they’re applying. However, whatever your reason, I would guarantee there’s a solution! Check out this list of the top 3 reasons women skip sunscreen and why they no longer apply!
- It makes you break out.
If you are prone to acne breakouts, the idea of applying oily, pore-clogging sunscreen to your face is probably a little less than appealing. However, you should know that you do have options that won’t cause breakouts, such as the Colorescience Sunforgettable sunscreen. It’s a mineral powder that provides physical UVA, UVB and infrared sun protection. It keeps the skin cool and won’t exacerbate skin issues like traditional sunscreens.
- It burns your eyes.
I absolutely hate this in a sunscreen. Living in Florida, we perspire. A lot. Especially when we’re at the beach or doing any kind of physical activity. What’s more frustrating than going for a run or playing volleyball on the beach and suddenly feeling like your eyes are on fire?
But while this is definitely a big issue with traditional sunscreens, it’s a nonissue with Sunforgettable. With this water resistant, physical sunscreen formula that contains Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, you don’t have to worry about being blinded. For this reason, it’s a great sunscreen for kids since you don’t have to worry about them getting it in their eyes. They will also love how easy it is to apply and re-apply.
- “I’m not going to be out in the sun… I’m just driving back and forth to work.”
One of the biggest misconceptions people have is that they think you only need to wear sunscreen if you’re going to be spending time outside. In fact, 78% of women between the ages of 18 and 24 said they only wear it if they’re at the beach.
However, depending on the length of your commute or if you sit near a window, you could actually be getting a lot of exposure to the sun day after day. Far more than you do during that monthly trip to the beach.
Remember: if you can see light, light can see you. So unless you’re in a room where you can turn off the light, and I’m not talking about the light switch, you’re being exposed to UVA rays.
We recommend keeping a tube of the Sunforgettable applicator in your car or desk drawer so that you can easily apply or re-apply as necessary – without the mess or hassle associated with most sunscreens!
Are any of these excuses familiar? Regardless of how you’ve treated your skin in the past, it’s never too late to make changes and treat your skin differently starting today.
