Summertime, the heat, the sun… The beauty of the tan, but also the inevitable dark spots on the skin. I do not know about you, but with my light Nordic skin I find myself every year a few more dark spots on my face. And this in addition to the natural ones, the freckles, which appear on my nose with the arrival of the first spring sun and remain until the arrival of autumn.
So for me the usage of face creams with maximum protection is absolutely essential.
As a result, the morning face care routine changes a bit.
I always use the eye contour cream, but to the face cream I now add another one too: the one with very high sun protection, in fact.
I put it directly after the serum: Advanced Night Repair by Esteè Lauder. (Because despite the name which seems to be referred to the evening routine – Night Repair – this serum can absolutely also be used during the day.)
In addition, Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II can be used safely as a base for any sunscreen. Meanwhile, it always does its detox, anti-stress and regenerating action, while the protective cream blocks harmful UVA and UVB sun rays and prevents the new dark spots appearance.
As a protection, I use Elizabeth Arden Sun Defense for Face Eight Hour Cream, with the high protection SPF 50 PA ++.
Where SPF indicates the level of protection against UVB rays and PA – the level of protection against UVA rays.
Attention: This routine is valid for the “normal” days, where I do not have to go to the beach, and therefore, I do not repeat the application of sun protection during the day.
While in the days, when I’m under the sun at the beach, even if I’m hiding under the umbrella for most of time, I try to apply this same cream on the face repeatedly, without forgetting to use another one for the whole body, which is also so important for the health of our skin.
I wish you all bright sunny days and thank you very much for reading.
