1. Use a moisturizer formulated with brightening ingredients and sunscreen:
We love ingredients that naturally contain actives that brighten complexions such as licorice, mulberry and pearl. We also recommend using a moisturizer with a higher SPF – ideally 30 or higher. Sun exposure not only increases age spots, sunburns and the risk of skin cancer, it ages the skin prematurely – ultimately making complexions appear less vibrant. Sunscreens need to be reapplied in order to effectively protect the skin against sun exposure. The higher the SPF, the longer the amount of time before another application is needed. For example, an SPF 15 will provide 150 minutes ( hours) of sun protection before another application is needed. On the other hand, an SPF 45 will provide 450 minutes ( hours) of protection. Since it is unlikely that many people will commit to reapplying sunscreen every hours, it’s best to choose a sunscreen with a higher SPF – ideally something that will last from dawn till dusk!
