beautysecretsforall When I was younger I used to think that you only need to wear sun-screen in the summer time, and that you could ONLY get burned while laying by the beach.

It wasn't until later in life that I majored in Environmental Studies (at UCLA class of 2012 #GoBruins) when I realized the myths I've been living with.
If you think sun rays are only strong during the summer, you're one of the many people (like my younger self) who can make a bad mistake when it comes to sun-protection.
I still remember the day my professor at UCLA talked about this fact. Boy did my jaw drop....
️The sun is closer to earth during winter months therefore stronger, sun rays hitting you at an even more acute angles.
During summer months, the sun is further away from earth, and sun rays hit you at more of a 90 degree angle. Less impact. BUT because of other factors such as wind patterns, the angle sun rays hit you, humidity and etc... It FEELS hotter! ️ If that wasn't bad enough, snow and ice can both reflect up to 80% of harmful UV rays so that they can hit the skin twice, (according to the Skin Cancer Foundation)!! So even in winter, keep in mind to wear your sunscreen.
Even on cloudy OR overcast days ️, the Suns UV Rays are more available and stronger.
P.S: the picture above is using special cameras to see a girl's skin damage in winter! She doesn't look burned to our eyes, but her skin cells have started aging and damaging due to sun damage. ️DO me a favor, and TAG everyone you know, or tell them. Protect your skin.

eloquentlyspoken Ladies, ladies, ladies, I can't stress this enough. Here is my face covered in taw unfiltered honey, from #fabens I prefer it is an El Paso thing.
Well the reason I have honey on my face is that I have been getting very bad adult acne, so the products I was using were drying my skin and making my laugh lines and crows feet more prominent. So I went to Sephora and bought myself a serum to wear under my night cream. Turns out that if you have sensitive skin such as me you have to use it every 3 nights till your skin becomes used to the high levels or Retinol and Retin-A. Well it doesn't say that I found this out after once it had caused such inflammation on my skin, my pores are enlarged my skin burns and is so dry. Therefore I'm back to washing with calming disinfecting raw honey, then moisturizing with emu oil, and so far one side of my face is back to baby soft, but my nose and other cheek still inflamed. Lesson to be learned. #retinolburn #retinol #retina #serumburn #rawhoney #unfilteredhoney #localhoney #rawalmondscrub #emuoil #chemicalburn #skindamage #montanaemuranch

xdrealynnx According to my #dermatologist today was a #scary day. Apparently due to my #horrible #epidermis #genetics I currently have and am at risk for many #skin #defects BUT on the bright side since I am taking early #precautions NOW I am going to do all and any #Cosmetic #Procedures to #erase and #perfect all of my #flaws! So glad I can finally afford these procedures. From this day forward I am only going to use #BroadSpectrum #SPF#50 to avoid any and all #future #potential #skindamage #persuitofperfection 4w
