I thought I'd share one of the most valuable skin tips you will ever read. No matter the shade or your skin, your gender, the time of year or even if you do literally nothing else to take care of your skin (which would be bad to idea)...WEAR. YOUR. SUNSCREEN. Now that it's #Springtime
and the sun is staying out longer this is key to remember. Personally, this is the time of year I bump up my #SPF
to 50 (I wear 25 during the winter months) Everyone's skin is a little different; the minimum wear a 15 and increase according to your lifestyle and location on the planet. As an #esthetician,
my professional recommendation is that you wear SPF year round. Make it a habit! Brushing your teeth, showering, wearing deodorant... these are all things we do without thinking... SPF should be too!
I have worked as a freelancer for #Clinique
now for about a year and a half. I am not there every day. Honestly, I am probably behind the counter helping people with their skin issues maybe 5 to 8 times a month. Clinique's market is all over the spectrum. One thing that remains a constant during my visits is that I will pretty much always have one visitor during my shifts that falls into one of these categories: Male or Has a darker skin tone then would normally think of wearing SPF on a daily. They may fall into one or both categories, but they are always in their mid 40's and above and they ALWAYS say the same thing; "I wish I had thought about this when I was younger." Imagine if I was there more, that is a pretty high percentage of people with regret! Once they are educated a little about skin they learn that ALL of the concerns they see on their face today were PREVENTABLE. It is a known fact that it's easier to prevent then to reverse the signs of aging. Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing face products out there to help, but prevention will always be best weapon to a youthful completion. SPF is that weapon. Consider it your skins' invisible ninja warrior against the signs of aging. It is the fountain of youth and the easiest external aid you can add to your daily routine for your skin.....
