The #1 Way You Are Aging Your Skin

Posted by Sara Barrett on Jul 2, 2014 2:06:00 PM

silk touchWhile no one can stop aging, we can slow down the aging process by taking care of our skin through maintenance and preventative measures. One particular preventative measure is the most important, but also the most neglected..

The No. 1 way you’re aging your skin? You may have guessed it already…. Not wearing enough sunscreen daily.

The sun is the primary cause of skin aging. The sun can reach you on cloudy, rainy, or snowy days as well. Skin-damaging UV rays can penetrate through glass, so you need to apply sun protection even indoors.

We are passionate about getting every single person who walks through our door to add sunscreen to their daily routine. Which is why we carry a ton of various types of Sunscreen, for every skin type and individual concern.

 

Jane Iredale Powder Me SPF

I love this sunscreen. Don’t want to add another lotion underneath all of your products? This SPF comes in powder form (tan, golden & translucent) and is great for putting on underneath your makeup, in your hairline, and other areas where you rather skip adding lotion. 

Revision Intellishade - Tinted SPF 45

This is one of our top selling products here at Silk Touch, and is my must-have summer obsession.  Do you love a quick skin care routine in the summer? So do I!

Revision Skincare Intellishade Tinted Moisturizer SPF 45 is a 4-in-1 product for all skin types. Along with broad spectrum protection against UV rays, this item also works as your moisturizer, anti-aging product and foundation makeup. The medium-coverage formula of this sunscreen moisturizer hides the appearance of discoloration, redness and dark spots for a more even tone. This product also contains anti-aging ingredients that minimize fine lines and wrinkles for a smooth texture and youthful look. 

I use this beauty tool to create a flawless complexion in a flash.

Epionce Sunscreen 

This sunscreen is great for body and face and comes in SPF 30+ and SPF 50+. This is a light, quick absorbing broad-spectrum sheer lotion, that effectively protects the skin from damaging UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) radiation. This potent lotion prevents inflammation, reduces signs of aging, and minimizes the risk of skin cancer. Yet, it's free of irritants and sensitizers so you can use it everyday as your final phase in maintaining skin health.

Skin Medica TNS Moisturizing SPF

Do you love your other TNS products? Get it in your sunscreen too! This daily moisturizer offers the ultimate combination of hydration and anti-aging protection. enriched with the patented growth factor blend TNS®, and antioxidants, this formula guards against the destructive effects of free radical damage while also providing full-spectrum protection from uva/uvb rays.

Silk Touch Rx SPF 30 with Antioxidants

This is a great antioxidant sunscreen, that contains Vitamin C & E. This is our heavy hitter of sunscreens, and is great for those who have sun-sensitive skin conditions such as Melasma. This product is fragrance free and preservative free. This sunscreen feels very glossy, and works as a primer under your foundation.
