Mischo Beauty: Skin Effects Continuous Action Spray Sunscreen SPF 45 with Dermaplex



By now, you all know how I feel about sun damage and protecting your skin from the sun. I've written about it here, here and here. Well, I'm always on a quest to learn more and I have even more information for you from Dr. Jeffrey Dover, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Yale University:

- Wear at least a SPF 15 when spending minimal time outside and SPF 30 or higher when outside for longer or if living in the south

- Only formulas labeled "broad spectrum" guard against both UVA and UVB rays

- High-quality sunscreens are only part of the equation, being fully protected also means re-applying often. Reapply every few hours you remain outside (apply more often after sweating or swimming)

- You should coat every exposed patch of skin with a thick layer of sunscreen- about once ounce (or a full shot glass) of sunscreen to cover your entire body

Dr. Dover recently launched his own sunscreen called Skin Effects Continuous Action Spray Sunscreen SPF 45 with Dermaplex, and it's recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. It remains effective for up to 5 hours and is available at CVS. Now I love this one because it's a spray - it sprays on clear- and for those of you who have issues with sunscreens leaving a white film on your skin, or making you look "ashy"- then you'll definitely want to check this one out!
