Are you wearing your sunscreen wrong?

by Kelli P May 16, 2017

How much sunscreen is enough? What SPF level is needed for best protection?

Do you know that you need a shot glass full of sunscreen to cover your entire body? A shot glass full ensures proper coverage. This means if you're on a week-long beach vacation, you should go through a bottle of sunscreen every 3-4 days! Why? For optimum protection, the new recommendation is to reapply every 80 minutes.

It's also best to stick with lotion type sunscreens versus aerosol. Aerosol types are just not as effective. Sprays are notorious for not providing the SPF number on the label. Much of the spray is blown away in a gentle breeze. Even application is more difficult too.  

Should I wear SPF30 or SPF50? 

SPF30 blocks 97 percent of light,  while SPF50 blocks 98.5 percent UV. Pretty close isn't it? It's more important to purchase broad spectrum sun protection and use it--even on cloudy days.

I always recommend getting in the habit of applying a day moisturizer with SPF30 every morning, right after showering.  Making it a habit ensures you'll be protected rain or shine.

Best day cream with broad spectrum SPF30 for sensitive skin over 50

 

Many women feel because their liquid foundation contains sunscreen, it's all they need. 

Not true. The way you apply a liquid makeup and a moisturizer with sunscreen are completely different.  One you apply and spread, reducing the amount actually on your skin, the other you apply more generously. Best tip: Apply the day moisturizer with sunscreen first, then use liquid foundation with sunscreen. 

Please practice safe sun! Your skin will thank you. 

Do you have a tip on how to best protect your skin? What do you do?

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
