Is it really THAT important to wear sunscreen?

Short answer: yes! And you should be wearing SPF 30-50 everyday. Here’s why: You may not think twenty minutes in the sun could possibly do?that much damage. But you are wrong. Even a few seconds of sun exposure without SPF protection will mutate your cells and could lead to a form of skin cancer later on. Gross. It can take up to 30 years (what!!) for sun damage to appear on your skin. Which means those years you spent at the beach with little or no sunblock (and you thought, hmm I don’t really get freckles or dark spots so I must be all good!) will catch up with you.

Fake tan is one of the best inventions ever. The sun is so damaging to the skin and yes you hear about it on the news and social media all the time but I don’t think everyone actually recognises how serious it can be and how awful it can be once your skin is damaged. You only get one body and it really is so important to look after yourself. Everyone wants to be tanned, especially in the summer and us girls go to all lengths to be the golden goddess we secretly are and don’t get me wrong I admit I have not always been the best at looking after my skin and have had my fair share of sun beds but recently I have really been looking into how much the sun can do and it honestly is shocking! Moral is the story is that you should stick to the fake stuff! My favourite brand of fake tan is Fake Bake. This tan is used by people…
