How to Protect Your Face from the Sun without Sunscreen

Chalky, itchy, greasy. These are the reasons I resisted putting sunscreen on my ultra sensitive face. 

 

I know that sun damage can accelerate wrinkles, dark spots and generally speed up the aging of my skin cells. None of these are my desired outcome;) Plus, I have rosacea, which is made worse from unprotected sun exposure.  

 

I need sunscreen on my skin when I am going to be exposed to UV rays. And I want my skin to feel comfortable, hydrated, soothed. Not caked in heavy white lotion, itchy and greasy. I seemed to be asking too much. Until...

 

When I opened a jar of Skin Essence Organics Vitamin E Cream for the first time I was a little taken aback. The cream is thick and green! 

 

I was pretty skeptical that this product would be the answer to my SPF dreams but I committed to giving it a try and I am so glad I did. 

 

The green in the cream comes from natural antioxidants present in the organic plant materials blended into the formula. It is ultra hydrating, soothing, rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties.

 

The cream contains a natural SPF mineral, zinc oxide, and I wore it all day in the hot sun without any additional protection and did not experience any tightness, redness or burning. 

 

As a regular daytime moisturizer, I take a pea size amount of E Cream and dab it on my forehead and cheeks. I then run my fingers under water to dampen them and work the cream into my skin for a lighter coverage.

 

If I am going to be outside and in need of heavier protection, I simply work the cream into my skin with dry fingers. 

 

I love how this product feels on my face, that it is an all-in-one moisturizer and sunscreen and that it contains nutrition to soothe and protect my face, too.

 

If you struggle with typical sunscreen on your skin then give Skin Essence Organics E Cream a try. Even if you're skeptical;) I promise you'll be happy you did.
