“Smell the sea & feel the sky, Let your soul & spirit fly…” Van Morrison
Sun drenched days & starlit nights… its summer! The season has something special; the sunny skies and starlit nights make a perfect backdrop for adventure, fun, relaxation and romance. Long, lazy days in the sun spent on the poolside for some or riding waves for others creates cherishable memories. While basking in the sun is fun, it is more important to protect the skin from over exposure. Sun rays can burn or prematurely age the skin causing age spots and wrinkles.
Choosing the right sunscreen
When one prefers to slather on a sunscreen, they have some choices to make.
Key considerations in selecting a right sunscreen:
Sunscreen packaging contains the key information helping one to evaluate its effectiveness. Apply sunscreen before you get dressed. SPF needs a good 20 minutes to sink in before your skin gets complete protection.
Greasy, thick, causes break outs and most annoyingly; it turns makeup into a patchy, shiny mess. But there are sunscreens that are freaking awesome. Light-weight and non-chalky, they look completely invisible under your makeup. Azafran’s Defend SPF Crème gets absorbs into the skin as soon as it is smoothed on, so it does not leave a cast on deeper skin tones or cause dark makeup shades to look ashy. Works even on the deepest complexions. Does not clog skin pores and hence does not result in break outs.
Sun protection for children
Be it, children are playing at the backyard or at the beach; sunscreen is a must. When choosing sunscreen for children; look for the ‘broad spectrum’ on the label. This means the sunscreen will protect against both UVA (skin damaging) and UVB (burning) issues. Now the trick is to get the little squirmier to cooperate
A smile, a kiss, a sip of wine; its summertime! Bask in the sun and have fun while also staying protected.
