Why You Should Be Wearing SPF Every Day

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.



You might be surprised to learn that I don’t add an SPF product to my daily skin care routine in the summer.  That’s because SPF is always in my skin care routine.



I’ve been using SPF on my face every day since I was a teenager.  Now, in my mid to late 30s, my skin looks great.  When I tell someone my age or that I have a child in college, they are in disbelief.  I was lucky to inherit some good genes, but I attribute most of that to wearing sun protection daily.

WHY YOU SHOULD BE WEARING SPF EVERY DAY


Two-thirds of women know that using SPF every day is important, but only one-third of women actually use it daily.

Sunscreen blocks the UV rays from the sun.  Those UV rays can cause serious damage to your skin.  At best, they can cause premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.  At worse, they can increase your risk of skin cancer.

Using SPF every day can help protect the keratin, collagen, and elastin in your skin.  These substances help keep your skin smooth and toned.

In addition to fine lines, you could also see age spots and a change in your skin texture.

You likely won’t notice the effects of the UV rays for years.  So, it’s very important to start using a product with an SPF now, even if you haven’t used one in the past.

OLAY REGENERIST WHIP WITH SPF 25


You might recall that I talked about Olay Whip a few months ago.  I like it because it’s lightweight and feels great on my skin, but I had to use a separate SPF to protect my skin.

Now the Unicorn of Moisturizers has a sister with SPF, Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 25 from Walmart.  Other moisturizers with SPF feel heavy on my skin, but this is lightweight thanks to the Active Rush Technology.  It holds and releases 1000x its weight in moisture, so it absorbs quickly into your skin.  It blends beautifully with all skin tones and won’t leave your skin sticky or oily.


What are you waiting for?  Head to Walmart and pick up Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF to try it yourself.
