It's that SUNNY time of Year
It's Summer people and you know what that means! AB Skincare's annual wear sunscreen reminder! We can't express enough how important it is to product yourself from the sun. Even on those cloudy overcast days...you would be surprised how many more people end up burned on a cloudy or windy day than a straight up sunny day at the pool!
First up: The Face- us ladies at AB Skincare use the AB mineral powder as our primary sun prevention item! Its active ingredients are Zinc Oxide & Titanium Dioxide so it lasts a very long time, usually until it is wiped off.
Second up: The Neck & Chest- Do not forget your neck & chest!! We like to apply a sheer liquid sunscreen that is pretty light and not sticky!
Next Up: The rest of your body....don't forget those hands and feet people. You can usually pick a non-sunscreen wearer easily out of a crowd if you take a look at their hands a neck (frequently forgotten when applying sunscreen for protection).
And remember if you aren't using a zinc and titanium based sunscreen you need to re-apply every 2 to 3 hours and even more frequently if sweating or in water!
Other brands we recommend:
AB Skincare's Mineral Powder is our number one choice for the face but for those looking for a sunscreen for the rest of their body here is what we recommend for a broad spectrum sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock for the neck & chest. For the rest of the body we recommend the Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Lotion with Broad Spectrum or the Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Zinc Oxide Mineral Sunscreen Lotion if you are looking for an environmentally conscious product that has eliminated Oxybenzone from its formula.
