Here at Soleil Toujours, July is Safe Sun Month. A month full of information for safe sun worship. To kick it off, here are our top tips:
1. Always protect your skin at least 20 minutes before heading outdoors. Sunscreen can take 20-30 minutes to start working, so be sure to apply before relaxing in your lounge chair, not during. For the best protection we recommend our SPF 50 Mineral Based Broad Spectrum Continuous Mist.
2. Protect your skin every day. It's not just a day at the beach that requires sun protection. UV rays are strong in the summer at all hours, and even 20 minutes outdoors can damage your skin. For that we recommend a daily moisturizer with SPF, like our Face Mineral Based Broad Spectrum SPF 45.
3. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen. All sunscreens are not created equal. For truly effective protection from the harmful rays that can cause skin cancers, you need to go broad spectrum. All of our products provide broad spectrum protection. Take care of yourself and your little ones with our SPF 45 Mineral Based Broad Spectrum Continuous Mist for Children.
4. Go mineral. Finally, pay attention to the ingredients in your sunscreen. The ingredients in many chemical based sunscreens may cause hormone disruptions and allergies. In fact, these chemicals enter and remain in the bloodstream, and are also found in breast milk and urine. Learning about this is what led to the creation of Soleil Toujours. This is why we do what we do. Learn more about the differences between Chemical and Mineral based sunscreens and help spread the word with our diagram below.
Most importantly, enjoy July, the month of the summer, and join us in practicing Safe Sun.
