reasons why you should be using SPF, why to use spf, why to use sunscreen

Let's get real for a second: SPF should be in your life. Ever seen one of those memes that's like, "if you recognize x toy, you should be using x skincare in your life"? Well, SPF should be applied no matter your age! Even if you're a mama with kiddos, put that sun protection on! I practice what I preach, too! You may have read about my love of sunscreen in previous posts. Shockingly, only 1/3 of women wear SPF daily! Many think of sunscreen as greasy, heavy, pore-clogging, or smelly. Olay's SPF products have eliminated any of the above characteristics with lightweight, non-greasy, non-pore-clogging, and delightfully scented skincare.

Reasons you Should be Wearing a Moisturizer with SPF in it

It prevents fine lines Thinking about wrinkles can feel so far away in the future, but the way you treat your skin now lays the groundwork for how it will look when you're older. It is important to wear sunscreen as a kid and in your teens, but once you have hit your twenties, SPF on your face should be non-negotiable! If you want to keep wrinkles at bay, keep those UV rays away with SPF. Having it in your moisturizer is like double-dipping because plump, hydrated skin is less likely to get fine lines.

It prevents sunspots and keeps an even skin tone Sunspots?! Count me out. Nothing shows your age (and like of attention to skincare) quite like sunspots. Those are the little brown circles you see on people who are older or spend a lot of time in the sun. I want to keep my skin tone as even as possible for as long as possible. If that means putting on a daily moisturizer with SPF, I am committed to the task.

It lowers skin cancer risk Remember when we used to live in tanning beds? If you are younger than me, you may have already been scared out of the practice (which is good)! If you are older than me, you may remember laying outside in the summer with butter or olive oil on your skin. YIKES! It is well known that UV rays are harmful and increase the risk of melanoma. You don't want to spend the rest of your life checking moles and weird skin lesions, going to doctor appointments, or worse, getting cancer treatment! If that doesn't scare you, look up videos about people talking about how skin cancer ruined their lives. Protect your skin with SPF and you'll thank yourself!

It keeps your collagen in check Another naturally occurring skin blessing that I have talked about before is collagen. Collagen keeps your skin plump and elastic. Without it, you would have cheeks dragging down to your collarbones and a lot of wrinkles! UV rays can zap up all of your collagen, which is harmful for your skin. Be sure to keep your skin hydrated and protected by putting on SPF moisturizer before you put on your primer and makeup.

It is very convenient Now, more than ever, sun care is easy to incorporate into your daily facial routine!  I wrote a post about the 'Unicorn of Moisturizers' Olay Whips not too long ago, and now I present to you Olay Whip with SPF 25! I love that I can take one step out because the protection is already added into my morning skincare. Multi-tasking is made even more convenient because the product is packed with vitamins that will bring out the vibrance in your face. It's made to blend in with all skin types and skin tones leaving no oily or sticky residue. Besides the addition of SPF, the Olay Whip is known for delivering 1000 times its weight in moisture that is instantly absorbed into the skin. This has changed my perception of skincare dramatically because I now wear SPF and sun blocking moisturizer every day!
