The other I was reminiscing about my mini birthday vacation. It made me think about how much I wish I could travel more. Wish I had enough financial freedom to do the things I would love to do. Still working on that sometimes somethings take time. I love exploring other countries and nature. There is so much to see out there. I love the good outdoors no matter how hot or how cold it is.
Since I am talking about being an outdoor person, and you are too! Let me point out the importance of protecting your skin. Even though the sun is stronger in the summer, some of its UV rays can be harmful no matter the weather conditions. I have been using Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF 50!! Raise your hand if you have used their products since you were a child!! Yes, I am aware I can’t see you raise your hand, I’ll just assume you did lol…
Neutrogena has been around for ages. I have some holy grail products from this brand I can’t be without. Well, that’s a whole other topic. I have been using their products since I was a kid (well, my mom used it on me.) My mom always used their kids sun protection lotions on me and this followed me to adulthood.
I will be honest though I used to forget a lot to wear SPF. Lately, I have taken sun protection very seriously. My younger sister had a skin cancer scare. Even though you get your vitamin D from the sun which is a good thing. The sun can damage your skin, age you quicker and I know you all want to stay young forever or at least try you know. The worst things the sun can do is cause skin cancer. So taking a few seconds to apply some SPF can actually save your life and protect you from skin cancer.
I have been using the Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion in SPF 50. They also have the Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion in SPF 30. I love that these are not so greasy and they smell good. Was a bit scared to use it on my face because I have oily combination skin. I was also worried it would break me out but it didn’t. Please note that everyone has a different skin type so if you decide to try it please do your homework. Had had to point that out.
I also like that it is not sticky like some other SPF I have used before. This one sinks right into your skin, very fast absorbing. It also keeps your skin moisturized and soft all while protecting it from the sun. I use this all over my body and face or any skin showing. Since its winter now in NYC most of my skin is covered, but I make sure my face has SPF. Don’t let a cancer scare force you to wear SPF, wear it now. I love the outdoors and being able to enjoy it freely knowing my skin is protected is the best feeling ever.
How many of you use SPF daily no matter what brand and what the weather is like?
