I can’t express how important sun protection is – whether you are training outdoors regularly, or someone who just has exposure on a regular basis. It isn’t just about aging – pesky lines and spots – either! It is about being preventative with you skincare so as to avoid dangerous conditions as much as possible.
I used to train (figure skating) on an outdoor rink all winter as a child – for YEARS. I was also a rollerblader who would frequent the beach trails or 10-mile outdoor paths in one go. We didn’t know as much at the time, and I’d not be surprised if I had forgone my sunscreen back then. These days, I still need to be better about arms, neck, shoulders, ears (the generally exposed areas when it’s warmer), but I ALWAYS have at least 30 SPF on my face. Even then, I could reapply more frequently, but I definitely do make an effort.
I recently saw this new Sincere products from Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula at Target. I love their regular Cocoa Butter (the scent reminds me of cookie batter!), so I was excited to see that SPF has been added to these.
I also love sprays because they are much easier to maneuver for the tough-to-reach spots like the back, back of neck, back of shoulders etc.
Whether or not you like THIS brand, or others, it’s worth checking out the sunscreen aisle – yes, ALL times of the year. Your epidermis will thank you, as will your body down the line.
