Did you know that 90% of the signs of aging are caused by day-to-day UV exposure? Did you know that if you have had 5 sunburns at any age it increases your risk for melanoma? That UVA and UVB rays are bad for you and are equally intense whether you are laying out in the sun or driving in your car? I’ve just started using Supergoop! and let me tell you why.
Pretty soon, I’m going to share with you a very personal story that will make this blog post much more relevant. Suffice to say, current day Tanya would tell Tanya in her teenage years and 20’s to get out of the sun! I grew up in Houston and we had Galveston within our reach so I spent my high school days
basting frying myself on the beach slathered in baby oil. It doesn’t take a genius to see that I have a fair complexion. So you can imagine the outcome. Once my sunburn was such a deep shade of red that it was almost purple. OUCH! Additionally, my college years were spent in a tanning bed to get that “base tan” before laying out. Or just to get ready for the fraternity party I was going to attend. I went so often that I had a membership to the local tanning salon. Can you imagine? What an idiot!
I now spend all my time and money at the dermatologist trying to undo all the sun damage from the 80’s. I wish that we had Supergoop! back then. I absolutely love this brand. The founder, Holly Thaggard, was a school teacher and witnessed first hand what the sun was doing to little kids when they would go outside for recess or play. This inspired her to start a company dedicated to year-round sunscreen and protection. Brilliant!
Today I am much wiser about sun protection. I slather on the Everyday Sunscreen with SPF 50 just to walk the dogs. I don’t want any sun on me. My skin is the type that easily freckles so any sun exposure causes damage. And don’t even get me started about my hands. The Forever Young Hand Cream with SPF 40 is what I apply before I leave the house. I also have a smaller one for my purse to reapply throughout the day. Did you know that most sun damage to your hands happens as you are driving? UGH!
Their products are cruelty-free and feel good on your skin. They are not sticky and apply evenly. I am detailing all the Supergoop! products I am currently using below with a little more information. You will notice that everything I use is SPF 30 or higher.
Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45: The refillable, 100% mineral, sweat resistant formula sets make-up, reduces shine and refreshes your UV and environmental protection all in one swoop. Great way to reapply sunscreen!
Defense Refresh Setting Mist – SPF 50: Unique three-in-one weightless mist that sets make-up, helps control oil & shine and refreshes your defense against photo-aging UV rays. Add this as a setting spray after you put on your make-up. Provides extra protection!
Everyday Sunscreen – SPF 50: Oil-free, water-resistant (80 mins) face & body lotion protects from sun’s rays, defending skin from photo-aging and dehydration. This best-seller is available in four convenient sizes so you’re covered. I put this on before I head out the door for any outdoor activity.
City Sunscreen Serum – SPF 30: Lightweight, multi-tasking moisturizer that protects against UV, pollution and environmental damage. Use daily as a moisturizer. I put it on after I wash my face and before I apply make-up.
Forever Young Hand Cream – SPF 40:The winner of Allure’s Best of Beauty three years in a row! This luxurious formula protects and nourishes hands with broad-spectrum SPF 40 sunscreen, powerful antioxidants, and skin-nourishing, natural oils. I put this on several times a day. Trying to keep my hands young!
Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream – SPF 37: Mineral rich anti-aging eye cream not only hydrates and lessens the appearance of lines, but also helps to address future photo-aging around the eyes with broad spectrum UV protection. Great daily eye cream – super rich!
I wish 20-year-old Tanya would have taken better care of her skin. The good news is that I am vigilant about my skin now. I hope you are too.
Happy weekend! xoxo – Tanya
