This week, I'm going to be reminding you
to wear your sunscreen.
00:00:04:35 - 00:00:08:26
We all know how important it is here
in Australia, and if you don't know,
00:00:08:32 - 00:00:11:15
then you have to know
and I encourage you to keep watching.
00:00:11:17 - 00:00:16:02
Firstly, I just want to start off with
if you have a skincare routine, go you
00:00:16:14 - 00:00:18:49
if your skincare routine
doesn't include sunscreen in it,
00:00:19:10 - 00:00:20:42
you might as well check everything out.
00:00:20:42 - 00:00:23:32
not only protects you from the damaging UV
00:00:23:38 - 00:00:26:41
rays that can cause aging and also skin
00:00:27:01 - 00:00:30:27
It's also the best anti-aging skincare
that you can invest in.
00:00:30:40 - 00:00:35:02
A really good example of
this is our paper little fighter here is
00:00:35:09 - 00:00:38:48
this guy used to be a truck driver
and the sun used to blare in
00:00:38:48 - 00:00:42:33
on, I think like like maybe his left side
or something like that.
00:00:42:42 - 00:00:46:23
And you can see on half of his face
where the sun damage has occurred
00:00:46:35 - 00:00:48:04
and where it hasn't.
00:00:48:04 - 00:00:51:21
There's another example of a lady
who use sunscreen
00:00:51:21 - 00:00:54:33
on her entire face, but she didn't
bring the sunscreen down her neck.
00:00:54:46 - 00:00:56:27
And this is her here.
00:00:56:27 - 00:00:59:11
And you can clearly see
there's a huge difference
00:00:59:17 - 00:01:02:32
between where she has put the sunscreen
and where she has the sunspots.
00:01:02:32 - 00:01:06:04
An aging obviously occurs
when we do get sun damage.
00:01:06:16 - 00:01:11:08
However, our skin cancer is another thing
that we need to be looking out for.
00:01:11:08 - 00:01:13:47
It can creep up on us at any time.
00:01:14:21 - 00:01:17:02
So I really encourage
you to always be wearing SPF,
00:01:17:11 - 00:01:19:29
whether it's sunny out,
whether it's overcast.
00:01:19:35 - 00:01:23:00
If you put it into your morning routine,
you're never going to forget it.
00:01:23:01 - 00:01:27:21
The best way to apply
sunscreen is to get about, I would say
00:01:27:21 - 00:01:28:31
like a ten cent piece.
00:01:28:31 - 00:01:31:19
Sorry, this one's running out,
so give me a second.
00:01:31:19 - 00:01:33:10
So get about a ten cent piece size.
00:01:33:10 - 00:01:35:36
That looks like a lot,
but it's thinned out on my hand.
00:01:36:12 - 00:01:39:24
And then you're going to want to rub it
00:01:39:24 - 00:01:43:16
Remember to bring it down your neck
and over your ears.
00:01:43:16 - 00:01:45:19
Never forget your ears.
00:01:45:19 - 00:01:48:33
I like to sort of massage up as well
because it's kind of like
00:01:49:37 - 00:01:51:40
an anti-gravity massage.
00:01:51:40 - 00:01:52:43
Don't forget your eyelids.
00:01:52:43 - 00:01:57:03
So I just like to grab the excess
that's like around my eyes
00:01:57:03 - 00:02:00:34
and put it on my eyelids,
because otherwise it stings.
00:02:01:04 - 00:02:02:08
Summer's coming up.
00:02:02:08 - 00:02:04:22
It's going to be hot.
The sun's going to be blaring.
00:02:04:22 - 00:02:06:39
There will be a little bit of rain
that's going to trick you as well.
00:02:06:39 - 00:02:08:45
But you still need
to be wearing your sunscreen.
00:02:08:45 - 00:02:10:48
I highly encourage you
to head to the shops.
00:02:11:27 - 00:02:14:27
I've listed some of the sunscreen
recommendations for face
00:02:14:27 - 00:02:18:19
and body down
below in the captions last fire.
00:02:18:33 - 00:02:22:02
And so I definitely recommend
you check them out, find what suits
00:02:22:02 - 00:02:25:47
you and start religiously applying
that sunscreen if you're not already
00:02:25:47 - 00:02:29:15
stays on safe team and have the best
week ever, we'll talk soon.
We all know how passionate I am about skincare. I absolutely love the feeling of my morning and nightly routine, it’s calming me, time that I get to enjoy daily. Something that I feel even MORE passionate about is SUN CARE! Firstly, if you are not using an SPF do not bother to use skincare. Sunscreen not only protects you from the extremely damaging, cancer causing UV rays, it also is the best anti ageing skincare you can invest in.
Surprisingly, this winter we’ve still managed to get some warmer and sunnier days here in Melbourne, and whilst you should be wearing sunscreen during overcast wintery days summertime is quickly approaching! This means lots of time outside enjoying the sun and warm weather AS YOU SHOULD! So make sure to wear sunscreen every day, whether you’re going to be out all day or just for a few hours! And don’t forget to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. Protecting your skin now will pay off later in life.
Here’s my Top recommendations for face and body sunscreens:
Mecca To Save A Face Sunscreen SPF 50+
Ultra Violet Queen Screen SPF 50+ Sun Serum
Cancer Council SPF 50+ (layered timely cos it’s a lil thick)
Mecca To Save A Body Sunscreen SPF50+
Cancer Council Sunscreen SPF 50+
Also to top up, I believe a nice lil spray on sunscreen would do the trick! I am looking in to this for Summer, I personally haven’t tried any yet, but I’m seeing this come up more often and I am down to give it a go! If you’ve tried it let me know in the comments!
