S is for Summer – and SPF
Today we’re taking a step back from our hair posts and focusing on our skin. After all, it needs love too, and we all want our skin to be plump, wrinkle free and clear of dark spots – no matter our age.
You might be thinking: well, summer is almost over, why talk about SPF now?
Well, truth is, as a lot of you already now, SPF should be applied daily – regardless of the season. Of course we amp up the SPF on summer, but sunscreen should be a daily step on your skin care routine!
Alicia, our aesthetician, is here to give you a few basic changes to your routine that will help prevent and even treat some of the problem areas in your skin.
“The first, and most crucial step, is to prevent sun damage. Everyone knows the importance of putting sunscreen on. Why is it then that so many people still don’t? Well, in my experience i saw people seem to think it’s a lot more complicated than it really is.”
There are ways to slowly introduce SPF into your routine without breaking the bank, or putting you behind on your schedule. iS clinical carries many products with SPF, allowing you to pick which one fits best into your lifestyle.
iS Clinical Protective Moisturizer
2 in 1, this moisturizer is hydrating, packed with antioxidants and perfect for daytime. Not only will it protect your skin from sun damage, it’ll hydrate it, minimizing the appearance of fine lines.
iS Clinical Extreme Protect SPF 30
If you’re looking for more protection, you should definitely look into this product. It has a very moisturizing formula, and not only helps to protect your skin, but it actually repairs the damage already done! It reduces redness and inflammation associated with sunburn, while delivering the most advance protection.
Eclipse SPF50+ Perfect Tint
This product comes in two shades: beige and brown. As the names suggest, beige is targeted to people with fair skin, whereas brown is perfect for Middle Eastern and African American skin tones. The product has a very light texture, absorbing quickly. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin E and paraben free, the Eclipse SPF50+ is ideal for all skin types.
Did you also know that most dermatologists recommend that you reapply your sunscreen multiple times a day? Sometimes 3-4 times! If you’re like me, you’re asking yourself: well, I already have my makeup on, so do I have to take it off and reapply the sunscreen?
Well, you definitely could, though most of us don’t have the time or patience to do that. That’s what’s really great about Jane Iredale products. Most of their powder foundations contain SPF and are approved by the Skin Cancer Society as to their sun protecting efficiency.
You can always go for a product like Powder Me Dry SPF30PA++
This handy powder comes in three shades: (from left to right) translucent, golden and tanned. While the golden and tanned deliver a beautiful glow-y bronzed look, the translucent can be worn on top of your makeup look, and won’t disturb or move your foundation, blush, etc. Just dust the powder all over your face, and voila! You’ve reapplied your SPF protection.
