One of the most powerful thing we can do to prevent damage (wrinkles/pigmentation) is by protecting our skin from the sun. The sun has many benefits to our body and minds and helps us receive vitamin D. It can also be terribly damaging to our skin if we are exposed too much. Using an SPF (sun protection factor) we can help minimize this damage. I wear SPF every day on my face even if I am not planning on being out in the sun for long periods of time. If I am outside for longer periods of time I wear my hat to minimize the exposure to my face.
I am going to share the SPF products I am using right now on myself and my kids. Every product is linked below. I hope to have one in the Simply Jess line later down the road as well!
JWCF Sunscreen Water Resistant Stick
I use this stick for my kids, it is natural using zinc SPF and its great for when they are in the water because its water resisitant. Most of our sun damage occurs before the age of 17 so we need to teach our kids to apply and re-apply their SPF.
I use several products from this line. The glow line is great, I love the glow stick for a clear and easy application. This is the one I used when my kids used to go to school (in the olden days) because it was light and didn't make them look white and chalky. I also love the Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream SPF 40. It has a tint to it so it doubles as my under eye concealer.
EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Face Sunscreen
I use this SPF daily on top of my REBOOT restorative oil for daytime use. Most days I use this as my SPF and my "foundation" since it has a tint. It is of course a super light coverage as far as makeup goes but lately this is all I need. It has a nice finish and is great for a dehydrated /dry skin type. I buy mine here on amazon.
I would love to hear what your favorites are for sun protection, let me know below! I will keep sharing if I find any others I am loving as well.
