Why I’m wearing SPF sun protection all winter long
Since I’m super pale and burn quite easily, I wear sunscreen with 50+ SPF every single day during spring and summer. But when the colder months roll around, I always forget whether or not you’re meant to wear sun protection in winter. I headed to the Cancer Council website and the answer is whenever UV levels are 3 or above, or you’re outside for an extended period of time, it’s a yes! While UV rays in winter compared to summer are much lower, in some parts of Australia you’re still at risk of sun damage. So lucky for me I’m reviewing Abeeco’s Face + Body Natural Sunscreen SPF 50.

While I sit in an office from Monday to Friday, come the weekend you can find me in a park playing with my two-year-old. So Abeeco’s Natural Sunscreen Face + Body Natural Sunscreen SPF 50 is the perfect weekend accessory.
It's a physical sunscreen so it appears thick and white to start with, but it actually makes it easier to know where you’ve applied the sunscreen. Plus it quickly changes to a clear consistency. And since it is a physical SPF, I'm more than happy to apply it to my child. I tested how it wears under makeup and I could still easily dot and blend my foundation over the top. But I'm more inclined to use a physical sunscreen when I'm not wearing makeup. I can't wait to use it all over my body when summer hits again. It's going to be a staple in my beach bag.
Have you tried this sunscreen? Do you prefer physical or chemical sunscreen?
