Protect to Prevent

As the weather warms up, I find myself turning to any and all sun protection methods to prevent my fair, sensitive skin from getting burned. While I always wear a hat, sunglasses, and limit my overall time in the sun, I find myself always getting a small sunburn no matter what. 

It’s important to remember how beneficial SPF is for our face and bodies, whether we are in the sun for extended periods of time or even just for thirty minutes. SPF is important because it protects us from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which is the biggest contributing factor to skin cancer, the most prevalent cancer in the United States.

A clean beauty option that is my go-to for the summer season is the sunscreen brand Clarins. Clarins offers multiple types of sun-protectant products, including their SPF 20 Day Cream and their Anti-Pollution sunscreen, which has a sun-protectant of SPF 50. 

The Anti-Pollution sunscreen is Clarins’ strongest sunscreen for the face, but it can also be applied on the body. It includes Clarins’ exclusive Anti-Pollution Complex, which protects your skin from harmful pollution. 

In addition to their amazingly effective products, Clarins Skincare has helpful tips to protect against sun exposure and damage. They suggest tips such as wearing protective clothing when in the sun, sitting in the shade when possible, wearing a hat, and wearing sunscreen at all times, even when it is cloudy. 

Clarins products and their helpful tips will protect your skin and health long-term, and ensure that your skin will look youthful and glowy for years to come. While it might not seem like an immediate necessity, I implore you to try sun-protectant products like Clarins. Your future self will thank you!
