Oh My.. I just realized I didn’t publish any posts last month. Please do forgive me, as I wasn’t quite with it. my cat passed on and I’m still having up and down moods on top of my anxiety and depression. Anyway a little better now So I’ll see if I can get maybe 2 out this month
Always remember (and I can’t stress this enough) use no lower than a 30 SPF if you are only running errands. But if You will be out in the sun all day you need at least a 50 if not higher SPF with UVA/UVB protection. (the ‘a’ are the rays that make you age and the ‘b” is for the ones that make you burn.) If you are fairs skinned then you will need to put it on around every half hour, more often if you are actually at the beach or in water. Those with Olive skin and darker need only put it on once an hour. And Put more on when you are about to go in the water. (remember water is reflective. Frankly that’s the only time I do burn!)
However the best of us that safely sun still sometimes get a burn here or there (like I said I usually get one when I go IN the water at the beach.
For as long as I’ve lived I can remember we always kept Noxema moisturizing cleanser in the refrigerator and when we got a burn We’d put it on as soon we got out of a nice cool shower.
Along with that we used to use those aloe gels, but a lot of them are just sticky feeling so I wouldn’t recommend those unless its a last resort.(and mixed with some of your favorite moisturizer)
Since I have an Aloe plant (and love when its gets big as I harvest it and just put the gel and water from it in a pot, with some lemon to preserve it and leave it in the back of the top shelf of the fridge. (It will keep for at least 6 months if yours is as cold as ours. Some things freeze sometimes on the top shelf.
P.S. Lemon is suppose to help reduce sun spots. (especially when you use it BEFORE you get them. Lemon is a natural bleach, when used on your hair to! Hint Hint
