Mid Week Must Have!

Hey its time for my mid week must have! You may think im getting a bit ahead of myself with this weeks product but if you keep reading you will see why.

Protecting your skin against the sun is so important and I didn't realise just how much until I actually studied it a couple of years ago. Im not going to throw facts or science at you however I would encourage everyone to do a little research and become aware of the dangers of sun damage to the skin and how to prevent and look after yourself. As your face is exposed constantly its very important to take extra care of this area!

I personal like to take extra care in the sun as I have fair skin, auburn hair and have soo many freckles I cant count them, all of these added together equal skin with the highest risk of damage from the sun. Even though I am not too prone to burning, I am prone to getting sun spots, and I catch the sun instantly which is why I start early in the spring with sun protection. 

 *Sun spots (hyper-pigmentation) are round flat brown discolouration's on the skin cause by the sun and usually appear on the back of the hands, face and neck.  It is usually more mature skin 40+ which these are more visible due them developing due to exposure over time to the sun. This is why they are also known as another name... age spots!!!

Due to my fair skin the sun spots have arrived a lot earlier in my life and this is why I am showing you this product I have been using for the last couple of years to help with this problem. The sun has finally come out this past week and even though it is not that strong I have been getting into the routine off using this product as I am outside a lot of the day. This is a sun cream specially designed to help reduce the signs of sun damage and aging. It is also designed for the face so it does not break me out or irritate my skin. I apply this every morning when I no its going to be sunny over my moisturiser. Because this is a face product it sits really well under makeup. It does not dry your skin out it makes it feel really soft and hydrated. It does have a scent to it but its not a strong sun cream smell, its really nice and fresh. This cream is light, non greasy and non shine however it does brighten the face making it look really healthy and slightly illuminated.  

I think this is a great product to have in your bad in the summer and not only if you have fair skin. It protects you and helps prevent the aging effects of the sun. I love it and I also have the body cream in this range too. Its so easy to add into your morning skincare routine and I cant rave about it enough :)
