Hey Addicts, spring in the Northern Hemisphere often means a few less layers, a little more skin showing and venturing outside in the daytime more for activities. Until they invent an actual Goth du Soleil SPF 1000, we will have to make due with the highest broad spectrum SPF we can that find isn’t pure Zinc Oxide paste.
Do not be fooled by the 10 and 15 SPF sunscreens in your powders and concealers, unless they are applied at 1 tsp per face, repeated every 2-4 hours, they are not giving you sufficient sun protection. Neither are your sunglasses or your car windows. Also, only UV rated umbrellas and parasols also really protect (though reflected sun foils them as well) and clothing with fabrics like Sunbrella, etc. One or two bad burns can have an effect on skin, causing photo damage that can take years to show up so here are a couple of my recommendations for those who are not nocturnal:
Maybe one day…
but until then, be smart about your sun protection.
Stay beautiful, Addicts ~Mimielle (of the Night)
