Make Sure You Aren’t Making One of These Common Sunscreen Mistakes!
The number of people who do not make the use of a daily sunscreen a priority is shocking. Sunscreen is not only for protecting your beautiful skin when you are at the beach or pool; it is for protecting it every day! To be honest, some people that are using sunscreen daily in their moisturizer or foundation are not using the correct type. Understanding the mistakes that most users make will ensure that you are getting the best results from your SPF!
Forgetting to Use It
Sunscreen is going to protect your skin from dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles only if you wear it daily- even in the winter! UVA rays penetrate your skin all year long! A is for Aging and All-Year-Round. That redness that you get when you are out in the sun for an extended period of time? Those are from the UVB rays. B is for Burning (There will be a quiz at the end of this). Use COTZ Face Natural as your makeup primer every morning so that you know that you are protected. Even if you aren’t doing a full face, the tint will provide enough coverage for a quick run to the grocery store or dropping the kids off at school.
Using Chemical Sunscreens
Did you know that there are only two physical sunscreen filters? Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Take a look at your daily sunscreen. Does it contain either one of those? If not, you’re using a chemical sunscreen, which is unhealthy for your skin. Now what does all of that mean? A physical sunscreen filter sits on top of your skin and reflects the UVA and UVB rays off as if you are wearing a coat of mirrored armor! No skin damage for you! With a chemical sunscreen filter, the sunscreen is absorbed into your skin, and converted to heat. No bueno. All of our COTZ sunscreens are healthier options for you!
Using the Wrong Sunscreen for Your Skin Type
It is so important for you to learn about your skin type. Are you dry, oily, normal, or combination? Getting to know your skin will help you pick the right sunscreen! If you find that your skin is a bit oily, COTZ Face Natural has an elegant, matte finish. Worried about that ashy residue on your dark skin? COTZ Flawless Complexion will leave you with a beautiful glow that Queen B herself will envy. Is your skin a little touchier? Use COTZ Sensitive to protect that perfectly delicate skin.
Do you think you can wake up, slap some sunscreen on your face, and then go hit the gym or beach confidently for eight hours? It isn’t enough to apply your sunscreen just in the morning. If you are sweating or swimming, you must make sure that your sunscreen is water resistant, and even so, you must reapply afterwards to ensure that you are protected. You should really reapply your sunscreen every two hours to ensure that you are properly protected.
Assuming That a Higher SPF Will Protect You Longer
Slathering on SPF 100 is going to ensure that you can stay in the sun for a longer period of time than an SPF 40, right? Wrong! With a perfectly uniform application, an SPF 100 gives 99% protection. An SPF 40 gives 97.5% protection. It takes a whole lot more chemical sunscreen for a minimal increase in protection. But in reality, all sunscreens must be applied every 2 hours per FDA recommendations, so the gain is minimal. Don’t be fooled by the SPF misconception that if a little is good, then a lot is better!
You Are Using Spray Sunscreen
This is just the absolute WORST! If you enjoy inhaling chemicals and coughing incessantly until the air clears, then sprays are for you! (That’s a joke). Please do not inhale your sunscreen. It’s actually pretty dangerous for your health, and for the health of your children! Try using COTZ Silky Foam. It’s a fun application for the kids and a little bit of this product goes a long way. At an SPF 40, it is providing you and your family with great coverage, plus it’s 40 minutes water resistant so the fun doesn’t have to stop.
You Are Missing Important Spots
Have you ever burnt your scalp or ears? I know it’s pretty terrible. Running a dollop of sunscreen on your bald scalp or part line will ensure that you won’t burn, peel, and look like you have dandruff for the next two weeks. Make sure that you rub a little bit on your ears as well! COTZ Lip Balm is great for these little trouble areas. Believe it or not, it’s great to use on your lips, too! Also, apply that sunscreen while you’re nude. When you wait until your clothes or bathing suit is on, you will gingerly apply it so as to not get it on your clothes. That’s how you end up with patchy burns in some of the most sensitive places!
