I am not going you to lie to you, I’ve only recently started using an SPF cream even when I’s not summer and you should start using one right now. Here is why.
I never actually been to a dermatologist but I grew up between nurses and doctors and I don’t think one of them mentioned using a SPF cream. Where they not that good at what they were doing? They actually were but a lot of years ago the Sun was not that powerful as it is now so I guess people didn’t thought about using a sun protection cream.
These days the Sun and UV rays are so powerful that you can even get burned on winter days! Spending time outdoors can lead to sun damage caused by these UV rays and that sun damage can lead to dark spots and even wrinkles.
Maybe you think “yeah well, I don’t want to spend my money on a special SPF cream” and you don’t have to. You can simply change your daily face cream with one that has an SPF. Use it as a makeup base or just as a simple face cream. You can chose the one with an SPF factor of 15, 30 or even 50 but I always tend to go for the ones with 15 / 30 as their texture is not that rich.
I hate a face moisturizer that makes my mixt skin (oily in the T-zone, dry on my cheeks) shine like the sun after a few minutes and a lot of the creams that have a SPF tend to do that but here are my recommendations for some nice face creams:
- The one that I am currently using is this one from Apivita. It seems to have a rich texture when you are first applying it but then it sets nicely on your skin;
- I’ve used this one from Avene in the past (when I was not that interested in the whole SPF thing simply as my face cream);
- I want to try this one from La Roche-Posay as I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about it, but couldn’t find it at them moment;
- I’ve also tried this one in the past from Clarins, so if you feel like spending a little bit more money I for sure recommend it;
