Lambs are leaping, daffodils are blooming and spring is here. As we break out our t-shirts and start to feel the warm heat of the sun during the morning, there is a clear indication that summer is on its way. So how do we make sure we look after our skin as we shed our winter layers? Splash on sunscreen to make sure you get protection from the harmful UV rays. But first, let’s learn about the best sunscreen.
5 Of the Best Sunscreen Skincare Tips for Spring
Use the best sunscreen
Number 1 on our list is using a sunscreen product. Of course, it is not only during Summer that we need to apply sunscreen products. No, we need to apply sunscreen no matter the season because the sun does not really go away, it only hides behind the clouds. But we need to apply it even more so during Spring and Summer because the sun is definitely more aggressive!
How often should I apply sunscreen?
Make sure you apply an ample amount and reapply it every two hours. The recommended amount for the face is about a tablespoon full, while on the body it is about a shot glass full. This measurement will help ensure entire coverage of all exposed areas.
Choosing a sunscreen for your skin type
Choose the best sunscreen product that is suited for your skin type. It’s a good thing that there are so many choices available in the market – from matte to oil-free to mousse. Whatever you prefer I am almost sure that there is a perfect type for your skin type.
Check the Expiration Date
If you are anything like me then you probably have various bottles of sunscreen around the house and in your handbag. It is important to check the expiration dates on your sunscreen as you may find you are not getting the active protection you need if they have expired. Remember to throw out expired sunscreens and if you’re not sure when they expire take note of the month and year you purchased the product and write it down on the bottle. Most sunscreens last up to 3 years so you can then gauge if you can still use it or not.
Protection is key during this season. It is always best to keep your family safe and protected from the nasty effects of UV rays so make sure that you put on a hat, wear your fave pair of sunglasses and slap on a generous amount of sun protection product for your own good.
