Sunscreen Guide | Why is it Important to Wear Sunscreen?
Every time you ask someone, “What products do you use for everyday makeup?” or “What makeup do you bring with you anywhere you go?” 9 out of 10 people always leave the most essential makeup product out of their daily routine. If you haven’t guessed already, I’m here to remind you of that one essential skincare product that should never be overlooked—sunscreen! Yes, that’s right, the magical elixir that protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while keeping you looking fabulous and radiant. Today, we’re diving deep into the world of sunscreen, exploring… everything! Grab a daiquiri, or a Capri-Sun if you’re on mom duty, and let’s learn all things sunscreen with our sunscreen guide!
So… why is it important to wear sunscreen? Sunscreen plays a crucial role in maintaining not only your skin’s appearance but also its overall health.

Our deep dive into the world of sunscreen will include a look at how sunscreen works, the difference between UVA and UVB rays, and finally understanding the meaning of SPF; it took me a while to actually know what it meant, so if you don’t, you’re not alone! We’ll also take a look at a few sunscreen options available on the market, focusing on the benefits and drawbacks of physical and chemical sunscreens, as well as recommendations for various skin types and concerns.

Let’s get ready to soak up all the knowledge we need to keep our skin looking fabulous while staying protected under the sun.

Let’s keep the conversation going and help each other make informed choices for our skin’s well-being.
