6 Very Good Reasons For Wearing Sunscreen Every Day

Hey Lovelies!

Are you one of those people who rushes out to buy some sunscreen the moment the summer season commences? If so, it’s time to change. Your skin will thank you for it later on in life. Sunscreen provides that vital protection your skin needs throughout the year. Here are 6 reasons sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine.

1.UV Rays

UV rays/giphy
Giphy.com

Many people believe (like I used to) that the sun is only harmful during summer months. So wrong! In fact, the sun’s rays are just as harmful in spring as they are in the middle of August.

2.Prohibits Skin Cancer

Skin cancer
Giphy/Ficazo

With 50% of all people set to encounter the C word (in some form or another) by 2020, there has never been a better reason to rush out and equip yourself with some SPF. There are a variety of skin cancers waiting to pounce – so don’t give them the chance.

3.Prevents Premature Skin Aging

Okay, so this is a puppy which reflects the opposite of aging. However, it’s too cute not to include and has wrinkly skin, so it kind of demonstrates my point. Think of sun cream as your secret weapon in the fight against those dreaded lines and wrinkles. Wearing it every day will stave off the years from mapping themselves across your face too soon.

4.Discoloration

Spongebob, discoloration
Giphy/Spongbob

 

If you want to avoid a face full of discoloration and dark spots (HELL, yeah) then sunscreen is imperative.

5.Blotchiness, Red Veins – No Thanks

The same can be said for preventing the onset of unwanted blotches that never seem to go, like – ever, and red veins that without the help of some expensive laser treatment will definitely never go. It’s far easier to slap a bit of sunscreen on your face.

6.Sun Burn

Granted, this is the UK – but miracles can happen. And with the population biting chunks out of the ozone layer like it’s a Michelin-starred chef’s signature chocolate desert, sun burn is ever-more likely.

In short people, wear your sunscreen. Like, every day people.

 

This Is Why Micro-Channelling And Micro-Darts Are Worth Your Time

Hey Lovelies!

Do you want better and more targeted results than skincare products can achieve, but don’t fancy the idea of a large needle of filler injected under your skin? Make way for the latest skincare innovations – micro-darts and micro-channelling. These powerful new technologies offer superior results for almost every skin concern, without the need for a nasty-looking needle and easy enough to be fitted into your day of me-time. What did you say, “Sign me up!”? My thoughts exactly. Get the low-down on the latest and greatest beauty tools at our disposal.

1.Micro-Darts: Try ZitSticka KILLA Kit, £27, www.zitsticka.co.uk

Should blemishes and spots be the bane of your life, you NEED to check this out. In short, this product contains 24 unbelievably fine micro-darts composed of hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, oligopeptide-76 and salicylic acid. You basically apply a patch over your spot and leave it for a couple of hours. These incredible ingredients get to work deep into the skin with warrior-like effectiveness. It successfully tackles the issue at the source, treating the area with the necessary blemish-destroying and skin nourishing components. Once you remove the patch you will be pleased to discover zero evidence of treating your skin – apart from looking amazing. Hooray!

The KILLA Kit includes 8 KILLA patches and 8 CLEANA swabs.

2.Micro-Channelling: For At Home Try Radara Under-Eye Patches, £164.99, www.facethefuture.co.uk

Micro-channelling has been around for a couple of years and is ever-growing in popularity. This method is for all people who are a tad cautious about the concept of micro-needling, but who wish to banish the evilness otherwise known as crow’s feet for the foreseeable.  Micro-channelling is offered at many clinics, but this is one you can actually do at home! Via the use of patches that contain microscopic needles, you simply need to apply the hyaluronic acid serum to the skin and cover with a patch. Et voila – firmer and more rejuvenated skin under and around the eyes. I love this!

Everything You Need To Know About BB And CC Creams

Hey Lovelies!

When it comes to BB and CC creams there seems to be no shortage of choice. These are a great option for those who want to save time on their skincare routine and are looking for slightly less coverage than a foundation. But which to choose? Read on to discover the differences between BB and CC creams and what you should opt for depending on your skin concern.

The Difference Between BB Creams And CC Creams

BB Creams:

BB (or beauty balm) creams are basically tinted moisturisers that contain specific qualities. Some offer blemish protection, some provide primer or anti-aging benefits, and most will offer an SPF. A BB cream generally aids in the prevention of skin concerns and are great for those lazy days.

CC Creams:

CC (or colour correcting) creams add a tad more coverage than a BB creams, making them the go-to choice for more mature skin with certain concerns. Whether the problem is dealing with age spots, redness or wrinkles, a CC cream will help by colour correcting, priming and concealing the issue.

Which Should You Choose?

1.For Aging Skin Use A CC Cream. Try: Thrive Causmetics Buildable Blur CC Cream, $38, www.thrivecausmetics.com

Although there are a few BB creams that support aging skin, should you have noticeable and significant imperfections you wish to conceal, a CC cream is the better option. Mature skin types that have hyperpigmentation or sallow skin will benefit from CC creams that contain antioxidants as well as vitamins C and E. Thrive’s multitasking formula successfully blurs (with their Blur Effect Technology), whilst the colour correcting micro-pigments and vitamin C offer optimal hydration and buildable colour correction. Say goodbye to unsightly pores and unwanted signs of aging. Better yet, it comes in 18 shades and has an SPF35.

Another fantastic product is IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF50, £31, www.itcosmetics.co.uk
