How to Buy Sunscreen

It is that time of year again that when you leave the house you must have sunscreen on.

Does it really matter the brand that you buy???
Not really, what does matter are: the SPF, UVA/UVB protection, and the ingredients, that's right, you need to read the label.

1-Choose a sunscreen with a SPF 15 or higher, even if your make-up has sunscreen in it, remember to apply sunscreen to your neck and chest. Your face may not show your age, but if you don't take care of your neck and chest, they will.

2-Look for ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or mexoryl. I have searched through the walmart reading labels and I did not find any of these, I have found who does make them though, Anthelios SC Daily moisturizing sunscreen, try CVS or Walgreens. Also Lancome UV Expert SPF 20.

If you are not willing to leave the Walmart, your best bet for anti-aging sunscreen is Helioplex found in Neutrogena.

3-Make sure you are applying enough sunscreen. You need about a tablespoon for your face including ears. About a shot glass size for all exposed areas. The spray on sunscreen is an awesome option for your arms and back of neck to help you not to miss any spots.

4-Make sure to reapply every 3-4 hours depending on strength. Remember to reapply more often if in and out of the pool. I always apply when I leave the house and I carry a Small size bottle in my purse. I am very fair skinned and burn easily.

Hope this is helpful!

What is a Blarney Stone?
The Blarney Stone (Irish: cloch na Blarnan) is a block of bluestone built into the battlements of Blarney Castle, Blarney about 5 miles (8 km) from Cork, Ireland. According to legend, kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of gab (great eloquence or skill at flattery). The stone was set into a tower of the castle in 1446. The castle is a popular tourist site in Ireland, attracting visitors from all over the world to kiss the Stone and tour the castle and its gardens.

The word blarney has come to mean clever, flattering, or coaxing talk.
