Are Your SPF Products as Good as They Claim to Be?
The term "Broad Spectrum" SPF that you see on skin care and cosmetic sunscreen products means that the product has passed the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Broad Spectrum test, which is providing proportional protection against UVA and UVB rays that will be labeled as "Broad Spectrum" SPF.
SPF 15 - 93% UVB Rays
SPF 30 - 97% UVB Rays
SPF 50 - 98% UVB Rays
For your face we have SPF in our Daily Moisturizers, Primers, and Foundation.
Note: You will always see that the Vitamin C Protection Moisturizer has a "lower percentage" of SPF compared to the other moisturizers. This is because the antioxidants in Vitamin C act as a natural sunscreen, and combined with SPF, prevent and correct sun damage just as effectively as our moisturizers with SPF 30.
The same can be said for the Foundation Stick. It only has SPF 8, but contains Vitamins A,C, & E for more protection from sun damage. Plus, when you're using our moisturizer with our foundation, it's an SPF powerhouse!
How often do you apply SPF when having fun in the sun?
You want to apply sunscreen every 2-3 hours. When wearing waterproof SPF sun lotion, always reapply after going in the water. SPF Clothing is also something to consider instead of putting on a plain white T-shirt.
Sunglasses that wrap around the side of the face are the best for the eyes and face. They may not be the most fashionable, but while in a car or playing outside activities, it will definitely save you from sun damage.
When I evaluate a customer's skin for a Skin Care Evaluation, I often see sun damage with sun spots on one side of the face. Please be very careful and always have your SPF moisturizer on your face and neck when in the car.
If you would like to brighten your skin and further correct sun damage, try the Vitamin C Peel Treatment.
Have fun in the sun!
