Why Sunscreen is the most important product to use on your skin!

 I must agree, the 10 step Korean skincare routine can be overwhelming. With our on-the-go lifestyle, it becomes tough to find time to focus on our skin. If you feel you are in this position, then it is okay to not go through all the steps everyday. However, one product you should NEVER skip out on is Sunscreen.

Sunscreen is so important because it helps prevent sun spots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Even if it doesn’t look sunny outside you should apply sunscreen, as even the rays that cannot be clearly seen, can still effect our skin. The sun’s rays enter our skin and destroy the fibers like collagen- leading to all the results mentioned above.

Few Sunscreen tips:
    •    Always apply it as the last layer of your skincare routine, leave for 15 minutes and then follow with makeup;
    •    If you are out in the sun for several hours at once, reapply the sunscreen every two hours;
    •    Sunscreen is not only for our face- when you’re out and about try and remember to apply on your hands and feet as well;
    •    Even if your makeup or moisturizers have SPF, you always need to apply a separate sunscreen on top as the SPF in your other products will never be sufficient;
    •    Always get a sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher.

One of my favorite sunscreen products is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios (linked) as it comes in a SPF above 50, has an oil free version, is paraben-free and is suitable for sensitive skin.

Remember it is all about finding what is right for your skin!
