Don't Forget the SPF

As a pasty human, I know the importance of using an SPF. All too many times I've been burnt by the sun's harsh rays... and it just isn't worth it. Not only does sunburn hurt like hell, leaving you feeling extremely uncomfortable, but it can also cause serious damage to your skin.

Ensuring to use sun cream on a regular basis is so very important.

I've got to be honest, I'm not one for popping on a sun cream on a daily basis if I know I'm not particularly going to be outside. However as soon as spring/summer rolls round and I know I'll be out in the sun, I always make sure to apply suncream.

I know applying suncream can seem like such a laborious process and one that you don't want to be doing when you want to get outside, but if you just incorporate it into your daily routine it becomes so very simple.

For my body, I generally use a high factor SPF (30 at a minimum) at all times when out in the sun to ensure my skin is protected and turns a nice bronzed shade rather than tomato red.

In terms of my face, if you've read my blog for a while you'll know in the past few years I've really struggled with my skin and finding something to help keep my skin balanced and clear was a real mission.

When I found the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo + cream just over a year ago, I couldn't believe how good it was... and to this day I know I can rely on it to keep my skin in check. Yes, I still get break outs now and again, but this cream really helps to prevent while also assisting in the fading of marks/scars. It's definitely worth spending a few extra pounds for a product I know I can trust.

After my last tube ran out last week, I headed to boots to pick up a fresh one. To my dismay, there were none left on the shelf...but I spotted this alternative version with SPF 30. I decided to give it a go and have so far been really impressed. It seems to have the exact same effect on my skin as the standard product, but its great to know I'm protecting my skin slightly from the sun's rays when I apply it every morning.

I will keep you posted on how I get on with this and whether I like it as much as the original... but so far so good!
