The sun is coming!!
Okay, maybe you’re booked to go abroad to more tropical climates so the sun really is coming. Believe it or not, between the wind, hail and snow showers of April/May, our Irish sun is building in strength. Upon bursts of sunshine through the flurries, you can feel her heat, and she will easily mislead you.
We need to be as mindful of UV here as anywhere in the world, so I urge: have sense! If you’re going to be out all day at an event, exercising, working, whatever it may be: protect yourself. Especially protect that beautiful face of yours.
Our faces are out all year round, so when it hits Spring, have your trusty SPF at hand for when you need it. Not when you are sitting at a desk all day. There is no need to use SPF/SPF based cosmetics when you’re indoors as no rays will get you it only causes a buildup of minerals/synthetics on the skin. This will call for more exfoliation in order to allow serums and moisturisers to absorb properly. Sun blocks say what they do, block.
I also like to question do we reduce our skins natural function to react to UV and protect us, if we constantly have a barrier of factor 50 at every second of the day? Do we cause a negative greater reaction because our melanin is too lazy to work properly if we get caught without SPF on? Do we then do more damage? On days where I’m in and out of the car/outdoors for momentary sessions, I tend not to panic. It is okay to allow you’re body and skin to do it’s job sometimes without the help of external products.
The base of Centella‘s SPF30 is mineral, just like many makeups: zinc and titanium which sit on the skin and reflect light away. Formulated with Aloe Vera Juice and vegetable oils like Argan, Shea Butter, Jojaba to nourish and feed antioxidants into the skin. Our advice, is to apply when you need it, depending on your day to day whereabouts. Just pop your factor 30 in your bag and V.Claire has you covered.
Like all of Centella’s products this SPF is organic and natural whilst having some great benefits;
- Organic certified formula
- Non greasy – Non sticky
- Chemical Free
- Fast penetration – Waterproof
- Sea and reef safe
- Face & Body – for the whole family
Overall, stop panicking, let some of that good sunshine hit your body for 20/30 minutes to get that good Vitamin D your body needs. But do be more conscious of your face, neck and chest. Where a hat if you don’t have a cream! Just don’t bake yourself for hours on end for a tan that is never going to last in Ireland. 🌞
