Sunscreen is the most powerful anti-aging product you can buy. With more than 85% of the signs of skin aging coming from UVA and UVB damage, broad spectrum sunscreen should be the first product in your shopping cart when you visit the beauty department.
“Sun protection truly is the most important skincare choice you can make,” explains Marie Helen Lair, Clarins International Scientific Communications Director. She says that sun damage does lead to premature skin aging in both men and women. The key is finding a brand and products that you love. And then using them daily to prevent further damage and to allow the skin to repair itself. What happens if you don’t use sun protection is all the repairs that the skin makes during the night while you sleep are reversed with new UV damage the following day. You aren’t able to give skin the protection it needs to help repair itself.
I honestly like the Clarins brand. I toured their labs last month and spent time with the scientists. So I see what goes into the products. So I’m thrilled to have this sun care set to give away on my blog.
