Summer Sun Protection Tips | Nicole Contos Insider Tips
Of course, we all know SPF is a 365 affair, but here are our Top 5 Tips for Summer Sun Protection for longer, brighter days.
5 Tips to Soak Up the Sun Safely
Use a lot of sunscreen — estimate about a shot glass full. That’s equivalent to 1.5 ounces, which translates to a pretty good coating over the entire body.
Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before heading outdoors. That gives it time to soak in before it’s washed away by the first sweat of the day.
Amplify your SPF results. By layering a product with Vitamin C under your sunscreen, you’ll boost sun protection with a powerful antioxidant effect. Link to vita-c serum
Reapplication is key. At the very least, apply sunscreen every 1.5 hours. Reapply more frequently when sweating, as well as everytime you get out of the water. If you tend to forget, create a buddy system or set a timer.
If you do get a sunburn? Of course, downtime from the sun is a must. Plus, you can accelerate your recovery and calm inflamed skin with Vampire Altar Cream or Cicalfate Cream (available for in-house purchase).
