Get Smart About Sun Care

5 Sunscreen Myths, Debunked!

You’re ready with the perfect swimsuit, cutest cover-up and a calendar full of pool parties, picnics and barbecues. But, if you’re like most people, you’re forgetting the most important outdoor fun essential: sunscreen.
 
Even with all the data about the dangers of sun damage, most people do not wear sunscreen regularly. As Senior Director of JAFRA’s Worldwide Marketing for Skin Care and Toiletries, I’m on a mission to help you get smart about sun protection. Here are the top 5 sunscreen myths, debunked!
 
Myth: Sunscreen is just for fair-skinned people
FALSE! Wearing sunscreen is the most important anti-aging step for people of ALL skin tones. Melanin in skin offers some natural protection, but everyone should use sunscreen when they’re spending time outside. Sun damage can lead to hyperpigmentation and melasma as well as premature signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging and dark spots. In fact, a whopping 90% of skin aging comes from the sun.* The good news is that sun damage is preventable.
TIP: Use JAFRA Sun to protect your skin against both UVA aging rays and UVB burning rays. It’s got you covered with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 and SPF 50+. Plus, it’s water-resistant, sweat-resistant and reef-friendly.
 
*Taylor, C.R., Stern, R.S., Leyden, J.J., & Gilchrest, B.A. (1990). Photoaging/photodamage and photoprotection. Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 22 (1), 1-15.
 
Myth: Clouds act as nature’s sunscreen
FALSE! The sun’s UV rays are present even on cloudy or overcast days. That means that you need sun protection in every season and every type of weather. For short-term sun exposure such as commuting to work, makeup or skin care products with SPF may provide enough protection. For extended time outdoors, choose high-performance sunscreen that is broad spectrum and water-resistant.
TIP: Put your best face forward with JAFRA Sun Face Protector Sunscreen and Tinted Face Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+. Made with Color Match Technology, our Tinted Face Protector blends with your skin tone and blurs imperfections for a sheer, natural look.
 
Myth: Sunscreen makes skin feel greasy
FALSE! Heavy, greasy sunscreen is so last century. JAFRA Sun is designed for lightweight, nongreasy comfort. Our sunscreens glide on smoothly and blend in easily, without a sticky feel or white cast. They’re oil-free, formulated to not clog pores and infused with botanical moisturizers to keep skin feeling soft. It’s skin-loving sunscreen with a light, tropical scent that smells like paradise!
TIP: Want the convenience of a spray for outdoor sports and family fun? JAFRA Sun Spray On Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is easy to apply (even on kids!) and dries quickly.
 
Myth: Sunscreen should be applied at the beach or pool
FALSE! For maximum protection, sunscreen should be applied before leaving your house. It takes an average of 15 minutes for sunscreen to soak into skin and work effectively. If you apply sunscreen at home, your skin will be protected during the drive to your destination and while setting up for your outdoor activities. Plus, you’re more likely to do a thorough job. If you wait until you’re at the beach, you might feel rushed and miss important parts such as the tops of your feet, back of your neck and tops of your ears.
TIP: Be sure to re-apply sunscreen every two hours and after spending time in the water.
 
Myth: A little sunscreen goes a long way
FALSE! You need more sunscreen than you realize. For the body, the recommended amount is about one ounce. Think of it as two golf ball-sized dollops, one for above the waist and one for below. For the face and neck, the standard recommendation is about ½ teaspoon or a nickel-sized amount. Squeeze onto the palm of your hand, then massage into skin until absorbed.
TIP: Practice safe sun by using JAFRA Sun sunscreen on all exposed skin, plus wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
 
Feel like a sun care expert now? I hope you’ll take these tips to heart, and practice safe sun care year-round. Remember, JAFRA Sun is skin-loving, family-friendly sunscreen that is free from octinoxate, oxybenzone, phthalates and parabens. Cheers to a safe and happy summer!

My SPF Essentials for Summer

The 3 sunscreens that you need!

Today I partnered with JAFRA to talk about the three types of sunscreen I use for, you guessed it, summer pool/beach days :)
 
Now, we all know that I’m very pale (I burn in about 15 minutes!), but even if your skin is darker, it’s super, super important to still apply sunscreen every 2-3 hours.  Not all sun damage can be seen on your skin (at least not immediately), so SPF it up, k?
 
Now here are the three SPFs that you need, from head-to-toe…

A scalp SPF

If you have crazy thick hair and no visible part, then you can skip this one.  For me (and a lot of us), I have fine hair and a visible side part (yes, I’m a millennial and I’m not giving up my side part!), so this is a spot I definitely can’t neglect.  Ugh, I cringe thinking about the time I got sun poisoning on my scalp in high school… that was THE WORST.  I’ll spare you the details but let’s just say there were #oozingblisters and you definitely want to avoid burning your scalp!
 
I love JAFRA’s new Spray On Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 because, to start, it doesn’t make my hair greasy or sticky.  Aside from that, it’s also great for any hard-to-reach spots if you’re by yourself.  The light tropical scent is also calming and the formula is water-resistant and reef friendly.  I also love that it contains ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E, so I know my skin is also getting hydrated while being protected.

A face SPF

Up next is, of course, your FACE. In my late 30s I appreciate protecting my face more than ever and I’m actually really picky about the sunscreen that I use on my face; I like it to be lightweight but not drying… it also has to have a nice scent and, preferably, also have some antiaging benefits aside from just sun protection.  My latest favorite?  JAFRA Sun Tinted Face Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+
 
As someone with rosacea (aka chronic red cheeks), this face SPF called my name since it’s tinted and will cover my facial redness! The Tinted Face Protector uses JAFRA’s Color Match Technology (yep, it WILL match your skin tone and more on that below) and microencapsulated pigments to blur imperfections with a sheer, natural look and lightweight, water-resistant sun protection.  The face SPF also contains the best ingredients like vitamin E for antioxidant and skin-conditioning, glycerin for moisture, bisabolol to soothe and protect, and elderberry fruit extract for antioxidant age-defying benefits.
 
But going back to the Color Match tech…I was skeptical at first.  The way it works is that it starts off white when applied to your face but then, as you blend it in, pigments are released and transforms the formula to match your skin tone. It really does work and I’m obsessed.

A body SPF

Lastly, you can’t forget the biggest area that you need SPF protection – your BOD.  And don’t be stingy!  You want to apply at least a shot glass-size of sunscreen every two to three hours.  My favorite: JAFRA Sun Body Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+.  It’s lightweight, reef friendly and water-resistant, just the way we like it J  Aside from that, I loooove that tropical scent that I mentioned earlier and the sunscreen also absorbs super-fast with no white, chalky residue (KEY, am I right?).  With this formula you’re also getting those same good-for-your-skin ingredients like bisabolol, glycerin, vitamin E, Provitamin B5 and elderberry fruit extract!

Father’s Day Gift Guide

The Best JAFRA Gifts for Dad!

 
April showers bring May flowers... and Mayflowers, of course, bring Pilgrims. [I bet your dad will appreciate that one.] But, more importantly, the arrival of May flowers means that Father's Day is just around the corner!
For me, watching my husband become a father has been one of the greatest joys in my life. Men often know their limits but when those limits are questioned by a small child - their child - their limits suddenly disappear and their abilities, much like their love, becomes boundless. Previously [wonderful] ordinary men become the greatest heroes and storytellers of their time. In their honor, we have scoured JAFRAs fragrance and skin care lines to find some of our favorites for your favorite Fathers!
The Protector
He has protected you for years, always looking out for your best interest and ensuring that you were safe from harm. Now, you can return the favor with our JAFRA Sun Collection.
 
The Stand-up Guy
He stands up for you, he stands up for work, he stands A LOT. This man is on his feet all the time and those puppies are tired! This amazing Foot Care Trio will make sure that his feet get VIP treatment! 
The Businessman
He might be 'business in the front, party in the back', or he might be all business - but he has always made time to be a great dad. Help dad put his best face forward with the JAFRA ROYAL Men skin care line perfectly formulated to cleanse, soothe, and protect while helping to soften skin and facial hair.
The Adventurer
He has a worldly sense of style and longs for the gentle sea breeze to blow through his hair. He may not have left his house in the last year but every time you hug him, you could swear you smell the salt of the ocean and hear a quiet drum of adventure. Feed his desire for something new with Navîgo Ocean Homme!
The Father of Both
He was blessed with a daughter and a son. We all know that you are his favorite child, and this will be the crowning achievement that will solidify your position - the perfect gift.  How does the Xclusive Duo Bonus Size sound?

Whether you’re celebrating the man who contributed to creating you, a man who had a profound impact on raising you, or a significant male role model in your life now, we would love to help you find the perfect gift for them. If they don't quite fit into one of the roles above, reach out to one of JAFRA's AH-MAZ-ING independent beauty consultants and they can help you curate the perfect Father's Day gift.
