I have been against tanning beds (solariums) for a very long time. It's so damaging to your skin and I'm glad to hear that in some countries the use of a solarium is not encouraged, even forbidden for those under the age of 18. But still in some countries, like Australia, they remain popular.....well, this was a surprise for me since they have sun all the time and a pretty high number of sun cancer cases.
And of course, it is not just the solarium that can do damage...it is the ever present sun that we all encounter almost daily. It can be our biggest enemy of the skin if we don't use sunblock.
Even though I am tan most of the year because of my travels, I always use sunblock to protect my skin against aging and the dark spots the sun can cause. I am not here to tell you how bad the sun or the solarium is for your skin because I am sure that you already know that. I am here to share with you the products that I, myself, am using when it comes to the sun:
1. Vichy capital soleil Sun care Cream for the Face and Particularly Exposed Areas protects against harmful effects of UV rays. It also prevents sun-induced skin damage and fights the onset of pigment patches.
2. Biotherm LAIT SOLAIRE SPF15 is very light milk for face and body . Your skin is protected from sunlight thanks to a photo stable broad-spectrum filter absorbing UVA / UVB. Lait Solaire also contains Vitamin E and Pure thermal plankton. I highly recommend this deliciously citrus-flavoured soft milk that smells wonderful.3. Sisley – Paris Sunscreen for face SPF 20 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. Sisley is well known cosmetic house and it has one of the best laboratories in the world, so I trust this cream 100%.
It contains essential oils and natural plant extracts including: shea butter, cucumber and horsetail. The combination of sun filters and a mineral screen helps protect the face against free radicals that contribute to the appearance of skin aging. It is also very good moisturizer.4. Piz Buin In Sun Lotion SPF 15 Medium Protection.I can not resist to this product just because of the smell, it is truly amazing.
We all have days when we want to feel the sun on our faces and achieve the sun kissed look , which is reasonable since the color of face goes down faster after lotions and creams that we are using.
I don’t use foundations and powders, except on special occasions, so if I feel like adding a little bronze color to my face, I use self toners. My favourite selftaning creams for the face are Clinique and Dior bronzer. For all the times I have used these products, I have never had any problems with either of them leaving spots. I love that they are light weight and they achieve a natural color for the face.
To take good care does not only include using good creams everyday but also to eat healthy, exercise and try to reduce stress as much as possible. Think Pink!
Until next tie, Ladies
