Summer is upon us and with the warmer weather comes lots of outdoor dining, pool parties and vacations among other things. And right about now is when everyone is picking up a bottle of SPF to protect their skin during this “outdoor” season, but what most people don’t realize is that they should be wearing SPF every day of the year not just during the Spring and Summer!
My personal SPF journey is definitely a long one. As you can see by these photos I have pretty fair skin, in the Winter it’s milky white, but in the Summer, it tans pretty easily. As a kid my blonde hair, blue eyed, fair skinned self definitely got a few bad burns, but overall my mom was pretty good about slathering me in sunscreen when I went outside in the Summer. In my teens and early twenties, I was the tanning queen…literally! I worked in a tanning salon through college and I tanned at least 3 times a week in a tanning bed. I was TAN…with capital letters. Once I turned 21 or 22 and started working in the beauty industry I realized just how unhealthy baking in the sun really was. I did a complete 180 and stopped tanning, started wearing SPF every day and a hat in the sun, and really started taking care of my skin. Now at age 30 I’m the skincare queen.
I don’t leave the house without sunscreen. I wear it during the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, I wear it in the sun and the rain. But did you know that even though 2/3 of women know they should wear SPF daily, only 1/3 actually do. I’m happy that I’m part of that 1/3 that actually wear SPF every day, but I can definitely understand why most women don’t wear it on the regular.
When most women think of sunscreen they think of that thick, pasty, strong smelling stuff they lather on in the Summer when they’re at the pool. Well I’m here to tell you that I’m most definitely NOT wearing anything like that on a daily basis. My SPF is light and moisturizing and leaves my skin looking awesome plus it’s a great base for my makeup. I told you all about why I love Olay Whips in this post a few months ago, and now I just told you why I love Olay Whips with SPF 25! Honestly Olay Whips with SPF is so lightweight that you are never going to believe it has SPF in it!
If you were one of the 2/3 of women that don’t wear SPF on a daily basis once you try this I guarantee you’ll become one of the 1/3 that does.
