With Summer fast approaching, it’s time to check in with the skincare products you are currently using to see if they need a little switch up. Perhaps
you might need to swap your moisturiser for something a little lighter or better still if you haven’t been using a moisturiser with a sunscreen then
now is the time to start using one.
And preferably one that includes natural sun protection ingredients, like Zinc. Zinc is able to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays (“UVA rays
penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin's thickest layer. UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin”.)
Not only will a moisturiser that includes a natural sun protection ingredient protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and possible skin cancers but given the sun is also the number one enemy when it comes to premature aging it will also help to prevent any further fine lines and wrinkles from developing.
Being mindful of this and staying out of the sun during the hottest times of the day, 10am – 2pm will also help with keeping your skin both healthy and youthful. Remember prevention is always best!
In addition to refining your skincare routine to suit a warmer and humid Summer season, it is also worth checking your foundation too. During the winter months we tend to use a shade lighter given we are not as sun-kissed. So perhaps it might be time to start wearing one shade darker once your skin begins to see a little more sun.
The beauty of using a mineral foundation is that this too contains natural sun protection ingredients like Zinc Oxides. Mineral powder foundation can offer very high SPF and the more you apply the higher sun protection you will enjoy. Mineral powder foundation will provide a physical barrier against the sun’s harmful rays.
Using a moisturiser with SPF together with a mineral foundation is a great way to fortify your skin’s sun protection and lucky for you MiSMo has just the products to help with this!
New Age Moisturiser with Sunscreen is the perfect natural moisturiser and can offer around 15 Sun Protection Factor thanks to the inclusion of Zinc. (Interestingly, in addition to Zinc's very handy sun protection qualities, it also possesses wonderful healing and calming properties too, which makes this moisturiser ideal for Rosacea sufferers. And don’t be deterred by the word “sunscreen” as this moisturiser is perfectly fine to use of an evening too!)
MiSMo also stocks a great selection of natural mineral powder foundations, which will also protect your skin from the sun while also offering beautiful, flawless and long lasting coverage. So not only will you be looking after your skin's health, but you'll look wonderful while you do it!
