Did you know you can get sun damage after 10 minutes of driving in the car? Or that we can experience the same intensity of skin damage from looking at computer or phone screens, because of the blue light rays they emit? Sun exposure occurs rather quickly, and overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays damages the elastin in skin, resulting and saggy and stretched out skin.
Many aestheticians and dermatologists advise to wear a moisturizer or additional product with SPF everyday, regardless of the season or your planned amount of time outside. And for good reason! Not only can sun damage happen quickly, but it can manifest and translate in other skin conditions, especially for those of us who are extra sensitive or acne-prone.
Eminence Organic Skincare recently released a collection of lightweight SPF skincare products for face and body- the Lilikoi Mineral Defense line.
Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide are natural minerals that block UV rays to protect skin from sunburn and damage
Likoi (Passion Fruit) Seed Oil is high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, which help counteract visible signs of aging
Satsuma Mandarin Peel Extract protects against drying pollution elements and helps to minimize the look of hypersensitivity
Larch Tree has deep moisturizing qualities, and protects skin against drying environmental stressors
Super lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin, the Lilikoi line is ideal for everyday use, as it is deeply nourishing yet light enough to be warn in any season. Like many Eminence products, it’s able to be layered with other products, so it makes a great addition to your skin routine. Because Eminence is fully organic, the SPF number is low for some. Fortunately, these products are so light that they may be reapplied as often as needed! We especially love that the sunscreen leaves behind no oily or sticky residue, and feels more like a body lotion than a typical sunscreen.
