Do you apply sunscreen at home? No? You’re not alone. Just ask around, few of us actually use sunscreen at home. It all adds up, right? Why bother using a sunblock if you’re safely tucked in the four walls of your home, away from the direct, scorching sunlight?
Well, unfortunately for most of us who think this way, there’s the villain called UVA. The sun gives off two types of ultraviolet rays the affect us – UVA and UVB rays. The outdoors kind of scorching rays that gives us surface sunburns are the UVB rays. UVA, on the other hand, can pass through windows, light day curtains, and penetrate the skin to cause deep, lasting damage (in the form of irreversible ageing which you can only try to lessen with costly procedures afterwards).
So, whether you like it or not, do yourself a favour and just apply some sunscreen in the morning before you sit down at your desk and start the work day.
If you need some motivation, why not get yourself some tinted sunscreen to look pretty while you’re at it? Then, throw on a brush of eyebrow pencil and some just a dust of blush to add a rosy glow. Anyway, if you have a face cleanser which states “removes makeup”, you will be able to remove light makeup (including these tinted sunscreens) with it at the end of the day.
Here, seven tinted sunscreens to protect you from UVA and UVB rays.
