Keep an SPF handy this season

Keep an SPF handy this season

Although the holidays have come and gone, winter is still here, and that means you may be longing for a sunnier way to spend the season. Wherever you go, exposure to direct sunlight needs to be accounted for with a dutiful application of an SPF.

If you're of the mindset that there are other ways to prepare for UVB/UVA rays than skin-protecting creams and lotions, such as getting a good "base tan" before departure, you're unfortunately acting in accordance with the widespread myth that suggests the sun can't damage tanned skin. On the contrary, because so many people consider this fact to be true, there's more cause for precaution than ever. 

You might also be laboring under the assumption that applying an SPF to your face for long periods of time can guarantee clogged pores and breakouts. As long as you're dutifully cleansing your skin twice a day, prolonged exposure to these creams shouldn't give you any trouble. Additionally, there are other ways to derive the benefits of a physical or chemical sunscreen that don't involve any liquids at all. The Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush Sunscreen, for instance, is a powder formula that makes it easier to protect your exposed flesh from the sun's rays. Simply twist the bottom and apply as usual. 

Another tip - make sure you're reapplying your SPF every few hours to ensure maximum protection.
