Have you had your daily dose of the sun today? Being out in the sun can boost our Vitamin D and serotonin levels. I’m sure that we’re all eager to hit the beaches after months of spending our time indoors. However, too much exposure to the sun can be harmful for our skin. While the sun provides many benefits for our physical and mental wellbeing, it’s not so beneficial for our skin. Over exposure to the sun has been found to cause sun burns, premature ageing and even skin cancer in the worst case scenario.
The weather has been getting hotter which means that we should be focusing on suncare more than ever. In fact, sun care products should be applied all year round, regardless of the weather. Studies have shown that we are constantly exposed to UV rays, even on cloudy days as they can pass through clouds and rain. In other words, when there is light, there are UV rays. So why are sun care products so important? While applying sunscreen is known to protect us from sunburn and skin damage, there are many more benefits of sun protection. They can help lower the risk of skin cancer, prevent blemishes and discolouration from sun damage and slow down the skin’s ageing process. Without further ado, here are two of our favourite sun care products that you absolutely need in your skincare collection.
Thank You Farmer Skin Tone Up Total Cream
This product is perfect for those feeling lazy. Reduce steps in your skincare routine with this multipurpose cream which is a 3 in 1 product that functions as a primer, tone up cream and sunscreen. It has a creamy texture but it feels super light and refreshing on your skin. This product contains SPF 50 which will be sure to protect your skin from harsh UV rays. It also has a brightening formula curated from natural ingredients which are effective in brightening and smoothing out fine wrinkles. At the last step of your skincare routine, apply a small amount onto your face and neck and lightly tap to absorb it into the skin.
La Muse Sun Control Stick
If you’re looking for something different, then this is the product for you. This product is unique as it is in a balm-like formula with SPF 50+ which dries invisibly on the skin. Due to the balm texture, it feels light on the skin without leaving any sticky residue. Unlike other suncare products, you can use this product before as well as after your makeup by lightly applying it on top of your makeup. It contains 7 different peptide compounds which helps with wrinkle care and deep hydration. The small compact size also makes it perfect for travel or keeping in your bag throughout the day for reapplication. Simply apply 2-3 layers of the product onto your face and gently tap it into your skin.
