Starting a Sunscreen Habit

Maybe you’re looking to up your game.
Or maybe you have gotten out of the habit.
For many, you just can’t get lift-off.

Developing a sunscreen habit is an important aspect of maintaining good skin health. Sunscreen protects your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation, which can cause a range of issues from sunburn to skin cancer. By using sunscreen regularly, you can prevent these negative effects and maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin.

As if you needed to hear them again… and you do ;-)

  1. Helps Prevent Sunburn: Sunburns are painful and uncomfortable, and they are caused by overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Wearing sun protection, such as sunscreen, a hat, and protective clothing, can help prevent sunburn and the associated discomfort.

  2. Reduces Skin Cancer: Prolonged exposure to UV radiation from the sun or tanning beds increases the risk of developing skin cancer. Wearing sun protection can help reduce this risk by blocking harmful UV rays from penetrating the skin.

  3. Reduce Premature Aging: Sun damage is a major cause of premature aging, including wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays can help prevent premature aging and keep your skin looking younger.

  4. Helps Your Body Protect Itself From Other Threats: Sun protection isn't just about protecting your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation. It can also help your body protect itself from other threats, such as extreme temperatures and windburn, which can damage your skin and compromise your immune system.

sunscreen habit is a simple and easy way to ensure healthy skin. Applying sunscreen takes only a few minutes and can provide long-lasting protection throughout the day. With so many different types and formulas available, finding your sunscreen can feel overwhelming.

At Boketto we have a small but mighty sunscreen collection. All are free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, and fragrances. Also, they’re all oil-free and non-comedogenic— which means they won't clog pores or cause breakouts. Our edit includes:

Le Prunier Plum Screen (SPF 31)

For those who know they should wear sunscreen but just can start the habit

Le Prunier Plumscreen is perfect for anyone having a hard time adding sunscreen to their skincare routine. OR! For sunscreen pros looking for a natural, eco-friendly sunscreen that combines broad spectrum sun protection with skincare benefits.

This is a very special product for the face that reduces future wrinkles, nourishes the skin, AND provides sun protection. We think of it as moisturizer with benefits. The silky sheer texture goes on easy, it smells divine, and the non-nano zinc oxide formula means no white residue. 

One of the key ingredients in Le Prunier's sunscreen is plum oil, which is rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and E. These nutrients help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and promote a healthy, glowing complexion. Plum oil also contains high levels of oleic and linoleic acid, which can help to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Tizo Ultra Zinc Mineral Sunscreen (SPF 40)

For those who are beach bound, athletic, or who suffer from “Driver’s Arm”

What’s “Driver’s Arm?” Look at your left arm. Is it more freckly or tanner than your right? Assuming you're reading this in the US, and you’re of driving age, your left arm gets A LOT of sun. And if you don't use sun protection, you might have sun damage akin to those who spend a lot of time outside (at the beach or enjoying activities.)

Tizo Ultra Zinc Untinted Sunscreen provides broad-spectrum protection for everyday use— head to toe. We recommend Tizo if you plan on sweating outside, or if you have a new scar you are trying to shield from the sun’s rays. Being a highly effective yet sheer sunscreen, you’ll be surprised (and delighted by) how quickly the 20% zinc oxide formula is absorbed into the skin. 

Marie Veronique Tinted Everyday Coverage (SPF 30)

For anyone looking to simplify their beauty routine

Wearing a tinted sunscreen can simplify your beauty routine by combining the benefits of sunscreen and makeup in one product. This can save time and money by eliminating the need to apply separate products. Case in point, Marie Veronique Tinted Everyday Coverage offers not only sun protection but also additional coverage for the skin.

Tinted Sunscreen can help to even out skin tone and cover up minor imperfections, such as redness or blemishes, and/or provides a natural-looking finish that enhances the skin's appearance without the need for heavy makeup. This can be particularly beneficial during the summer months when lighter makeup is preferred.

Like all Marie Veronique products, this is sun protection at its finest.
