We may be ashamed to admit it but many of us still believe the myth that women of color don’t have to worry about the damaging effects of the sun when it comes to our skin. We’ve all seen the gorgeous aunt or grandmother in her late 60’s with flawless skin that doesn’t even hint towards a future filled with wrinkles. We think that our natural melanin will protect us from fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots. Well, the truth of the matter is, we are all so very wrong! Women of color are just as susceptible to skin cancer and other harmful side effects including wrinkles and splotchy skin.
Clinique’s Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle UV Damage Corrector is the ideal way to diminish the effects of laying out by the pool without sun protection. This is a serum so you will want to use it sparingly. The directions suggest that you swipe on the serum two to three times a day underneath your SPF infused moisturizer. As you continue to use the product, your skin begins to even out and the quality of your skin tone is dramatically enhanced. I’ve been using this product for a little under three weeks and love the results already although I rarely lay out unprotected, especially when it comes to my face.
This is a worthwhile skincare investment for any woman who plans on partaking in a little sunbathing this summer. You sure don’t want your skin to pay the price!
