SPF On The Go

The best anti-aging product on the market is SPF. Anti-aging being the key word here. We have a variety of products that correct, reverse, and treat, but SPF is your absolute first line of defense when it comes to aging prematurely and developing sunspots. Ever seen the picture of the truck driver where half of his face (the section that faces the window) is far more aged than the other side of his face? Premature aging from the sun is real, ladies and gentlemen!

Did you know that reapplying sunscreen is of paramount importance throughout the day? SPF usually lasts about three to four hours – and only about two hours if there is sweating and swimming involved. If you’re sitting inside your home or office all day, one application should be sufficient, but what about those days where you’re out and about and you have a full face of makeup on? I wouldn’t feel like slathering SPF on top of my makeup. What a mess. Putting on and taking off these facial masks also makes reapplying sunscreen, even without makeup, a bit of a hassle.

But we’re entering the winter months, you say? The truth is if you can see where you’re going outside without the use of a flashlight, you need sunscreen. The sun doesn’t care if there is cloud cover. Sure, you aren’t at risk of burning, but you are still aging your skin.



Luckily, Soleil Toujours makes a Set + Protect SPF Micro Mist that will not only make SPF reapplication easy breezy, but it has the added benefit of hydrating and setting your makeup as well. It will keep you looking fresh while protecting your skin.

Soleil Toujours SPF Mist is especially amazing because it has the added protection of antioxidants like Red Algae, Bisabolol, Vitamin C Ester, and Vitamin E, which all fight free radical damage from the pollution in the air.

As with all Soleil Toujours products, they are cruelty-free, organic, vegan, and reef safe! This is one product that should always be with you.
