The summer has been amazing so far. Don’t you agree? Since I work a lot with skincare and see all types of customers who have exposed themselves differently to the sun throughout the years… The advise that you have heard a million times before: USE SUNSCREEN! You are only in Sweden but please. If you don’t prefer to look dalmatian colored with elephant skin as you age, put some sunscreen on.
This is my summer stash
If you think of it you have seen the older ladies with lots of darkspots and deep wrinkles around their lip area and around their eyes. (Ofc aging is influenced by genetic heritage but 80% of your skin quality you can effect yourself. )
Something else I want to point out about tanning, the argument ”first I get red and then I get tanned” stings in my ears. There is some truth in it BUT this tan will also peel of in just a couple of days. My advise is to always use 30 on your face and chest, the skin in these areas are so thin and sensitive and if they are to exposed the damage will be visible and darkspots, wrinkles, pigmentations, and thicker skin will appear as you age. Will you ever get tanned if you have a sunscreen that high? YES! Your tan will take a little bit longer to appear but the result is a golden tan that will last a lot longer.
This is me at work. Advising people how to take care of their skin. A lot of them doesn’t want to hear it, a lot of you probably don’t want to hear it. I am going to be an engineer, I must think in a cycle of sustainable development. I don’t want to be responsible for giving myself skin cancer (and I also want to look younger for as long as possible) therefore I USE SUNSCREEN.
So please people, protect yourselves!
