S.A.T. {Sun Aptitude Test}

June 1, 2012


Thank the weather heavens, summertime is H. E. R. E. here.

Crop tops, short shorts, sandals are just some of the things that we’re itching to wear. It’s like our skin has been on lockdown for the past 6 months and we can’t wait to strip down and forgive me for quoting Sheryl Crow but: soak up the sun. Okay, let’s keep it real. We know that we’re supposed to use sunscreen and sunblock to protect our skin but in reality after the initial rubdown – how many of us continuously reapply?

Exactly.

And how many of us know the difference between sunblock and sunscreen? Well, sunblock actually “blocks” ultraviolet radiation, while sunscreen acts like a filter to reduce ultraviolet radiation to the skin.

Even though we have the best intentions – I mean none of us want to experience the effects of sun damage – sometimes we find ourselves lacking when it comes to proper sun protection. Which is why we need to take a quick S.A.T. test. Now, before you get all anxious – I’m not talking about the high school test you have to take to get into college. StyleAlchemy’s S.A.T. = Sun Aptitude Test  – basically a quick quiz/reminder of how to have fun in the sun while keeping your skin safe.

Well, how did you do? I’m sure we’ve all heard this many times before but you know the idiom, “better safe than sorry”. No one is saying you have to avoid tanning or laying out in the sun but please make sure you do it the right way.
