You’ve heard it for years: apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before exposure to the sun and then reapply every two hours.
But how often do you reapply? Maybe you’re diligent during a long day at the beach, but what if you’re just out and about running errands or attending a sports event? What about a trip to Orlando to the parks? Are you consistently re-applying?
Many after-shave lotions and moisturizers have an SPF of 15 or greater, which is sufficient for most workdays where you have only minutes of exposure here and there. However, if you work outdoors or are near a window, which typically filters out UVB but not UVA rays, you’re at a much higher risk for sun damage. In the event that this is you, you’ll need a much stronger sunscreen, because once your skin is moisturized from that Florida humidity, your makeup is done and the SPF from your lotion is probably shot.
The question is, how are you supposed to reapply at 11AM, 1PM, and 3PM, especially when you’re already perspiring? We understand why you don’t want to deal with the hassle, but here’s how you can:
A surprising number of mineral powders on the market today contain SPF 15 or higher. However, the best is Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50. The brush is built in, which means you can throw it in your purse, your car, and your desk – because even if you don’t leave your desk for lunch, if you’re by a window you’re still being exposed to UV rays. With its convenient brush, you can easily dust on a new layer of protection in seconds without rubbing anything into your face and messing up your makeup (because you know that would happen with a lotion!).
The SPF 50 far exceeds the level of protection you’re going to get from other mineral powders and because it is a powder you don’t have to worry about it running in your eyes when you sweat, which makes it perfect for long days spent in the hot Florida sun!
One of the best parts, though, is that the Sunforgettable sunscreen is now available in a 3-pack, which means you can keep it in different locations where you will need it most…without having to drag it around with you all day!
