Newsflash: it’s hot outside, and you need SPF. Yes, even you — no matter what your skin tone is. I was definitely one of those people who grew up under the assumption that I didn’t need SPF because of my darker complexion… but as wonderful as melanin is, you still need to do everything you can to protect the skin you’re in. I mean, I came back from Mexico last month with noticeable tan lines for the first time ever! It kind of blew my mind to be honest, especially as someone who spent a fair share of her teenage years living the sunblock-free life in Nigeria.
If you’re a little newer to the world of SPF, here’s a tip: I found that one of the easiest ways to incorporate it into my skincare routine is by finding products that I love, that also offer UV protection. That way I’m getting everything I need for my skincare routine in ONE product, instead of layering several different lotions and moisturizers at a time. You guys already know how much I fell in love with Olay Whip when I first tried it last year, and now it’s back and better than ever with the addition of SPF 25. It’s a lightweight moisturizer, primer and a daily SPF all in one product… making making it the ONLY skincare you need when you’re getting ready in the morning!
Because of it’s makeup priming and SPF 25 properties, I use my Olay Whip SPF 25 to save time, and completely eliminate the dreaded 3 PM shine on my T-zone! If you’re curious and want to give it a shot, Olay Whip with SPF is now on shelves at Target, Walmart and Amazon, so pick one up on your next shopping trip for SPF-protected, shine-free skin all summer long!
