For Day 2, it's time to learn about the importance of sunscreen for beautiful skin.
So, you've started making sure to keep everything that touches your face clean. Now what? Well, it's time to find a sunscreen to wear to protect your skin.
Here's what Dr. Geyer says about sunscreen: "We often get a false sense of protection in our cars and in our offices, but the reality is that the longer wavelength UVA rays penetrate through glass and age our skin in a cumulative fashion throughout the day. Find a sunscreen that you like the texture of (with the right balance of texture and protection) and commit to wearing it every day."
The sun won't be able to wreak havoc on your skin anymore.
WHAT TO DO TODAY
Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher that's also labeled as broad spectrum.
Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure.
If you're going to be inside the entire day, apply once in the morning before you leave your home and once in the evening before you go home.
If you're outside most of the day, reapply every 2-3 hours.
WHAT TO DO FROM NOW ON
Set a recurring daily alarm on your cell phone for 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to remind yourself about reapplying.
AND A BONUS SKIN CARE TIP
Pay attention to the order in which you apply hair and facial products in the shower
If you're prone to acne, many of the hydrating ingredients in hair conditioners can clog pores if applied to the skin, and if not properly rinsed, they can run down your forehead and contribute to breakouts.
Make sure to shampoo and condition before you wash your face. This can help to ensure that all residual conditioner is rinsed before exiting the shower.
