Having fun in the sun with Vichy!!!

*I received this product for review*

I have worn sunscreen faithfully since 2008. Pre 2008-I was slathering myself in overpriced accelator lotion and had 3 pairs of tanning bed goggles in my car.  I’ve smartened up since then and protected myself with a decent amount of SPF.

Canadians have wised up along with me-or so says Vichy:

“80% of Canadians use sun protection which is an increase of 10% from 2008 and the majority of Canadians use a minimum SPF of 30.  50% of Canadians are living with sensitive skin.”

I’m sure you already know this but just in case you didn’t….it is important to protect your skin ALL year long.  UVA rays are consistent throughout the year.  Sunrays can travel through clouds and are reflected in high amounts by snow and water, causing exposure to the same rays twice.

UVA Rays are Aging Rays that penetrate deeply into the skin and can travel through glass. Long UVAs are also responsible for greyish skin, irregular texture and unwanted wrinkles and spots.

UVB Rays are Burning Rays responsible for ‘tans’ and sunburns. They make up 5% of UV rays.

So remember when I said I wear my SPF daily?  Check THIS out:

Did you know that SPF only measures the UVB protection and not the UVA?
