I hope everybody had a great weekend! I have to admit, I didn't do too much this weekend. I've been hit with this awful cold that's been going around and so on Saturday I was basically bed ridden until about 5pm, and then I went to work at 6pm... Yesterday I spent it doing homework, writing some blogs and going out for lunch! Oh.. and I watched a few documentaries... I love documentaries...
On Friday the weather was SO NICE! I was ready to bust out my collection of summer dresses and hit up a patio (I’m like half joking). It was so sunny and when the sun was hitting me, it actually made me heat up a little bit because I was wearing my Canada Goose coat… but I’m SO not complaining. I’m so over the winter we’ve been having and this crazy “polar vortex” that I will gladly overheat any day of the week.
I know that because summer is just around the corner, a lot more people start putting more effort into their daily beauty routine and into their skin care to prepare them for the season of “showing more skin”. A lot of people, however, forget that skin care is just as (if not more) important in the winter than it is in the summer. If you could guess what the most important element of skin care for any given person, what would you think it is?
A deep cleanser?
SUNSCREEN is EASILY the most important aspect to ANYONE’S skin care routine (sorry about all the capitals lol, this is extremely important)… doesn’t matter what type of skin you have, a sunscreen designed for your face is most important in anti-aging. SPF is your best defence against developing the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and poor skin quality. If you are spending all this time and money on skincare and getting glowing skin, spending time under the sub without protecting is going to undo all of that hard work. Using SPF is like an insurance policy for your skincare (BIG thanks to Elizabeth from Miracle 10 for teaching me this).
The SPF I use is part of the skincare line that I use called Miracle 10. I absolutely am in love with using the SPF from this line because it doesn’t feel or smell like stereotypical sunscreen. It has a dry-touch application so it allows me to put makeup on right after (thank God), it has a non-comedogenic formula so that it won’t clog my pores, and it’s water/sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes which is SUPER important for the summer when I run outside in the sun! It also comes in a super cute bottle with a pump so you don’t waste any of the product by accident.
