We all know that sun damage degrades our skin taking away from our bouncy, lifted, glowing glass skin, but did you know that studies show that, for many people, about 80% of skin aging happens in the summer? We know that wearing SPF daily is key to keeping skin looking and feeling its best. Unfortunately, we also know that that’s often easier said than done. A lot of sunscreens can sit heavily on top of skin, leave a white cast, or even irritate skin, clogging pores with heavy formulations that dry out skin and just don’t feel good.
Wearing sunscreen daily then becomes that chore that never gets done — or only gets done reluctantly from time to time. We all know our skin needs protection from the sun, though.
This is why we went on one of our most important beauty curation journeys! We tested hundreds of different sunscreens, trying to find one that met all our criteria:
- Fast-absorbing with no residue, chalkiness, or dryness
- Absolutely no white cast
- Truly weightless
- Effective protection against UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants
- A matte but hydrated finish
It sounds like an impossible task, and, sometimes, along the journey, we admit we felt discouraged, too. We’d find a sunscreen that felt weightless and absorbed quickly, but it didn’t provide adequate protection. Or we’d find a sunscreen that provided excellent protection from both UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants, but it would leave us looking like a ghost with pallid skin. Or we’d find a sunscreen that left a matte finish but made our skin feel heavy and chalky and weighed down.
And then we found this Daily Mild Sun Cream from Village 11 Factory.
The light, almost milky cream absorbed quickly. It left zero white cast. It felt truly weightless on our skin, like we hadn’t applied anything at all. With SPF 50+ PA++++, it provided us from both UVA and UVB rays, and it was formulated using titanium dioxide, a natural mineral that reflects UV rays away from skin and rarely causes irritation. It left our skin feeling hydrated and happy, matte but dewy.
(Note: it’s important to find a sunscreen that protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays! UVA and UVB rays affect skin differently; UVA rays are more commonly linked to premature aging, while UVB rays are more commonly linked to skin diseases.)
As we started to learn more about the Daily Mild Sun Cream, we learned that it uses proprietary technology developed by Village 11 Factory that helps the Sun Cream form a barrier on skin, protecting it from pollutants and environmental stressors. The Sun Cream also contains beautiful plant-based ingredients that help hydrate, soothe, and calm skin, ingredients like portulaca oleracea extract (helps soothe skin), chia seed extract (helps protect skin), and centella asiatica extract (helps heal and calm skin). There’s also niacinamide to help brighten and even skin tone, as well as squalane that helps deeply hydrate and, even, balance oil production!
We’re so excited to bring you this wonderful sunscreen! With the Daily Mild Sun Cream, we’re sure you’ll be so excited to wear sunscreen everyday; it won’t be that product you know you need but want to avoid anymore. Now you can go out and get your daily vitamin D without worrying about sun damage — and, before you ask, studies show that sunscreen doesn’t drastically affect the absorption of vitamin D and that as little as 10 to 30 minutes of sunlight are sufficient! Our recommendation is to be diligent about applying sunscreen to protect your skin, especially with a worry-free sunscreen like the Daily Mild Sun Cream!
Cheers to radiance and happy, carefree days protected from the sun!
