The weather is finally warming up in the bluegrass state...with Keeneland Spring meet going on, lake season around the corner, and cookouts with friends, these three products are essential to add to your regimen to make sure you are protected from sun damage.
Vitamin C Serum:
Vitamin C lightens, tightens & brightens. It is packed full of antioxidants and helps protect from harmful UV rays, as well as getting rid of existing damage. Skin Scripts Vitamin C/Green Tea Serum ($36) helps me stay protected without the greasy feel of most Vitamin C serums on the market and a fraction of the cost of one of my all time favorites Skin Ceuticals. It reduces wrinkle depth, brightens and tones the tissue, repairs collagen, stimulates collagen and antioxidant protection. I use this AM & PM after cleansing and seal it in afterwards with a moisturizer.
Everyone should be using a Vitamin C serum daily.
SPF for face:
Skin Scripts Sheer Protecion SPF 30 UVA/UVB Broad Spetrum Protection is amazing. A natural zinc oxide SPF 30, this is a light cream with broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB exposure. You can blend this with a moisturizer for daily use or apply as a separate Kurt for direct sun exposure. I also love EltaMD sunscreen line.
Don't forget to reapply!
SPF for the lips:
Nothing is worse than burnt chapped lips. This lip balm has SPF 15 along with Aloe & Vitamin E. With the tropical flavor balm, you will feel like you are on a beach. My husband is a huge Chapstick junkie, and he loves this stuff.
So many clients spend lots of money on treatments but do not follow up with sunblock or Protecion. You are basically wasting away everything you have done & paid for. SPF needs to be applied daily & multiple times a day. Mix with the Vitamin C serum and you are ready to defend against those harmful rays.
