My sunscreen of choice is always one that is reliable and easy to apply.
I recently discovered Supergoop’s ‘Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist With Vitamin C SPF50′. It is an aerosol and oxybenzone-free sunscreen mist with complete broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It contains 35% less alcohol than other leading sunscreen mists – so not drying on the skin – and Vitamin C refines the skins texture.
It is an incredibly powerful spray. It’s almost impossible to miss a patch on the body. You can turn the can to any angle and the spray doesn’t falter! I covered my entire body this morning – thoroughly – in no more than 90 seconds. Applying sunscreen can be time consuming and boring – this is literally a pleasure to use. The mist smells divine – slightly citrusy – and is suitable for use on the entire family. The products contain no parabens, no sulfates, and no phthalates.
There is a twist lock lid – which makes it perfect for travel.
It is non-greasy, doesn’t dehydrate the skin, and dries almost instantly on application. The mist is completely clear and does not require any rubbing in.
The mist is also available in SPF 30.
Holly Thaggard – Supergoop’s founder says that her mission is for SPF 30+ suncare to become a part of everyday life, twelve months a year – for both children and adults. This may sound extreme to some of us depending on where in the world we are (Holly is from Dallas, Texas) but there is no doubt that the power of the sun’s rays are underestimated.
I personally take sun protection very seriously! I am always lecturing my friends and family on using UV protection daily – on the face at least. The sun is our number 1 enemy when it comes to skin ageing – so good sunscreen choices are essential if you have an interest in looking after the skin. Always bear in mind that the backs of the hands and the chest are exposed to daylight almost as frequently as the face – so it is well worth including them in a daily routine.
Suggested Usage for Supergoop’s Antioxidant Mist:
-Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply to wet or dry skin during sun exposure.
-Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating.
-Reapply immediately after towel drying and at least every two hours when exposed to sunlight.
