Suncreen: A beauty essential (… and a tanning secret!)
I love the way I look with a tan – the healthy glow on my face and bronze skin on my body. I’ve shared with you my horror stories of being a teenager and slathering up with oil to attract as much sun as possible. But now that I am older, as much as I still love the look, SPF 30 is the first thing I apply to my face and neck every day.
I’m thankful that the weather is finally starting to cooperate and it seems like spring might finally be here. But I want to encourage you to take stock of your sunscreen now – if it’s expired – pitch it!!! Get a good broad spectrum SPF for your neck and face and one for your body BEFORE you are ready to spend some time outside this spring! Nothing will age you faster than the wrinkles and creases caused by sun damage!
Now, does this mean I have given up my love of the tan? No … I just seek the sun a little differently now and refuse to allow myself to burn. I use a strong SPF – never less than 30. But if you want to know a fantastic secret – I use an Indulge Pure Originals Cocoa Butter Body Butter Bar on top. It has great conditioning properties and feels like it attracts the sun just like the suntan oil of my youth did. The key is the SPF underneath to make sure there is no burning. I’m not as tan as I was as a kid, but I do still indulge in a little color and encourage that glow.
Feel free to call Indulge Salon at 717.846.4424 or come in to 970 South George Street and speak with one of our skin care consultants who can help you identify if the sunscreen you have been using is decent quality for face or body. They may be able to suggest a different product or approach or may put your mind at ease that the product you are using is just fine. And pick up an Indulge Pure Originals Body Butter Bar while you are there … to bring a little color into your life.
