Summer is in full swing baby! And I’ve been actually loving it this year! It’s been really warm here out West lately. And, I love going for long walks outside in the summer a lot. But it’s been REALLY warm. And sunny! That means I need serious sunscreen protection for my walks, so guess what I’ve been using? My favourite skincare brand, Vichy of course! I’m telling you, I can’t live without my Vichy now. And I’m going to try to turn all of you into fellow Vichy girls as well!
Anyways, back to sunscreen haha! 😀 I keep a bottle of Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 by the door and use it before I leave the house. Every day. EVERY day.
I know, I know…you’re thinking PFFT TRACY. IT’S JUST ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE MIST-TYPE SUNSCREENS. I’m here to tell you that it’s NOT. Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30($29.95) is the PERFECT invisible mist. Yup, PERFECT.
First, it has UVA/UVB Protection. And by the way, here’s how I remember which UV rays do what kind of damage. UVB Rays are the burning rays that are responsible for the short term impacts of sun exposure like tans and BURNS. BAD stuff. UVA Rays are Aging Rays. They’re the ones responsible for all the other stuff that we don’t want happening to our skin like wrinkles, spots and irregular texture. So Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 has Mexoryl XL-SX which is the #1 filter recommended by dermatologists. Along with Parsol 1789 and Octocrylene(a photo stabilizer) Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 gives you broad spectrum protection from ALL UVA/UVB Rays.
Second, Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 has the most comfortable texture I’ve tried, and you all know I’ve tried a LOT of misting sunscreens this year. But this one? By far is my favourite. It has such ultra fine droplets that feel so incredible on the skin, like flower petals gently brushing your skin or something I swear. 😀 It’s an experience I tell you! Quite different from other mists! I think it’s because it’s made with Vichy Thermal Spa Water which soothes and regenerates skin. And the best part? It dries to the touch in seconds. No icky, greasy feeling at all.
And lastly, Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 is perfect for us sensitive skin types. You know, those of us that react to every, single new product that touches our skin. And sunscreen? Holy wow really can cause a ruckus I tell ya. If my sunscreen doesn’t agree with my sensitive skin, I get instant breakouts. Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 is hypoallergenic and won’t clog pores at all. And you know what else? It has 0% alcohol in the ingredients. THANK YOU VICHY. It’s also rather nicely hydrating due to glycerin that’s also in the formula. It makes skin look rather luminous and healthy!
See? I told you Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30 is the perfect sunscreen! The last thing I want to leave you with is some instruction of how to sunproof yourself with Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist SPF30, courtesy of Dr. Sarah Gora PhD, Medical and Scientific Relations Leader for Vichy Laboratories.
1. Use circular motions when spraying! Don’t just point and shoot. You’re doing nothing to help cover your body evenly by doing that. Circles are your best friends people!
2. Spray the right dose! And that means 3 secs on EACH arm, 4 secs on the front AND back of your torso, and 7 secs on EACH leg. Spray, spray SPARY away people!
Please tell me you protect your skin with sunscreen every time you leave the house! Please. You really must.
