Last spring, Carol was introduced to COOLA sunscreen products, now it’s my turn! Even though summer is long gone you still need to be aware of your SPF. Recently, the senate passed a bill that requires the FDA to respond to pending sunscreen ingredients within a shorter period of time (8 different ingredients have been in their backlog, some for over a decade). With skin cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US, it’s more important than ever that we are aware of the most up-to-date ways to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Personally I wear SPF of at least 30 on my face every single day. One I find myself reaching for now is COOLA’s Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish. It naturally shields and nourishes my skin with anioxidant-infused minerals in a very light, matte line smoothing formula. It offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB plus environmental protection while it hydrates. Made with organic Rose Hip Oil, rich in free radical fighting Vitamin C; and organic calming Evening Primrose and Flax Seed Oils, delivering Omega-3and Gamma-Linolenic Acid it helps to improve elasticity and retain moisture. Organic Shea Butter smoothes and hydrates while the phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates skin.
The formula is ideal for normal to oily skin and is preservative free. It also water resistant for up to 40 minutes. If out in the sun be sure to reapply every 2 hours. COOLA Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish not only protects and soothes…it makes the perfect primer for your makeup! My only complaint about the formula is that is can come out of the tube a little runny, but thankfully you just need a little to cover your face and neck evenly. My skin has never felt smoother and it looks great all day!
