It breaks my heart to see Intelligent people blowing money on the latest and most expensive skincare products only to ruin their skin and results they have achieved by not wearing sunscreen correctly. 


We all know that wearing the correct amount of sunscreen has been proven to prevent premature aging, pigmentation, skin cancer, and wrinkles. 

However with that being said, I am confused and concerned by how many people still don’t apply enough sunscreen and when they do, it's often done incorrectly. 


After 20 year in the skincare industry working with thousands of clients, It seems like people develop a little amnesia when it comes to using sunscreen.  

They either forget to use it altogether, how to apply it properly, or how much sunscreen is needed to protect the skin from UV damage that causes pigmentation, premature aging, and cancer. 


Truth is, if you are using expensive skincare products now but don't use sunscreen perfectly, you are wasting money and ruining your results by not protecting your skin properly. 


So today I thought it would be fun to share my first 3 Important Sunscreen Tips That Most People Forget so you get this right. Please read my tips and watch the video below. 

I have 6 more sunscreen tips coming soon and hope today's tips will inspire you to be more serious about wearing sunscreen and sun safety.(  If you want to learn how I recommend applying sunscreen, watch this quick 60 second video here.

I promise If you follow my sunscreen tips you'll be able to achieve healthy and more youthful-looking skin for years to come while sustaining the results you have already achieved. 


1. If you know you are going to be outside at the pool, the beach, or if you know you are going to be very  active in the sun going for a hike or run, apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go outside. 

This will allow the chemicals enough time to absorb into the skin so that they can effectively reflect or absorb UV radiation. If you apply sunscreen while already outside in the sun, girl it's too late! 

We see many innocent people getting frustrated that their melasma or sun-damage is coming back because they forget that sunscreen needs to be used very specifically in order to work. 

Sunscreen is classified as a drug by the FDA and just like any medication, they need to be used as directed and prescribed in order to be effective. 

Also, did you know that if you apply a ton of face cream and then immediately apply your SFP, you are effectively cutting the SPF protection in half? Allow your face cream to soak in for a few minutes before applying SPF

 2. If you are prone to melasma, sun-damage, or a specific skin concern that you are trying to protect or prevent, ( like driver side sun-damage, sun spots or pigmentation ), always apply sunscreen all over your face, then apply more to those areas to help give an added layer or sunscreen protection. 

3. Don't forget to apply sunscreen to your ears!  Most people forget to apply sunscreen to their ears and behind their ears which is the number one place we see suspicious moles, freckles and actinic keratoses develop which can or will eventually become cancerous if not checked and properly diagnosed. 

Watch my quick 60 second video explaining everything in today post.
