NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30 Review
As summer time is slowing coming to a close and fall is quickly approaching, my family and I wanted to spend as much time as possible enjoying the summer weather and to get our last hoorahs in before the kids were off to school. We’ve spent our summer camping, goofing off in the pool, playing on the beach, adventures in the river amongst many other fun outdoor activities.
I can honestly say we are a family that loves the outdoors, loves the feeling of the beautiful, warm sun touching our skin but, as an esthetician I am well aware of the damage it can cause if a person does not take the right precautions.
All Year Round I Never Leave Home With Out It
Regardless of the season, temperature or weather, I never leave my home without carrying a trusting bottle of sunscreen with me. Whether it’s overcast at the beach or us playing in the snow, our skin is always protected. Always remember that water, sand and snow all reflect the sun’s rays making it even more powerful and dangerous. I recently discovered one of my favorite sunscreens, NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention Broad Spectrum SPF 30 UVA/UVB Sunscreen.
NIA 24 is perfect for even the hottest days as it’s very lightweight and non-greasy. After reapplying several times throughout the day, my normally oily skin didn’t feel as if it was layered on thick like some brands had left me feeling or that gross greasy ‘drippy’ feeling others gave me when it was really warm out. To avoid an overly shiny look on those really humid days, I skip on putting on a moisturizer that morning since the NIA 24 not only has mango butter to hydrate the skin which left it so smooth and very soft but it also has patented Pro-Niacin which improves your skin’s texture, tone, discoloration and creates a tougher protective layer repairing your skin barrier.
How To Use NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention Broad Spectrum SPF 30 UVA/UVB Sunscreen
I apply this NIA 24 sunscreen two ways depending on what my day looks like. If I’m going to run errands or go to a child’s practice where I don’t put on makeup I apply the sunscreen on a freshly washed, dried, clean face and neck fifteen minutes prior when leaving the house. If I have a meeting or just want to put makeup on that day I apply a thin layer on a freshly washed, dried, clean face and neck then after a minute or so apply your makeup on top.
To make sure you’re doing what is best for your skin makes sure you buy makeup products that include SPF in them as an added protection and make sure you always keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water. If you really want to have the appearance of a dark tan, take the safe route and find a really good self-tanner and a great bronzer to get that summer glow all year round without the long term damage and wrinkles! Your skin will thank you!
