One of the first things most people are quick to skip when the chilly weather hits is their sunscreen application. Out of sight out of mind, right?
Not in the suns case though. It still sends those little rays of evil your way. Yep, even through the thick heavy clouds.
While I do not apply sunscreen as many times through out the day as I do in summer, it is something I still keep in my routine. Really, it takes less than a minute to lotion up. I do it first thing in the morning along with my cleanse/moisturise/brush my teeth routine.
Two products that are getting a daily workout here are Milk's Dry Touch SPF 30+ Sunscreen ($17.95) and Le Tan's SPF 30+ Coconut Lotion ($10.99).
I love that the Milk Dry Touch Sunscreen is non greasy, it's more like putting on a thin moisturising lotion. I also love that it's packed with lots of skin calming nutrients that my kids skin seems to react to well as they both suffer from eczema, especially Greenie. During summer I would use something with a higher SPF factor, but this is perfect for winter to give them that light coverage.
The Le Tan Coconut Lotion is a hot little favourite of mine, both summer and winter. Firstly, the smell, it brings back the memories of trying to bake myself in the BFF's back yard around her pool. Look, I've never really tanned, but it didn't stop me from trying. Only when I was growing up coconut oil didn't have any SPF factor at all. I feel like when I use this sunscreen I am inviting the sun to kiss my skin whilst also knowing I've protected myself. Much more smart. I used this through summer and didn't get burnt once. Besides, look at that price tag!
How important do you find sunscreen?
Do you use it in summer?
Do you continue to use a sunscreen during winter?
