Latinas deserve a sunscreen that works for us!

by Pattie Cordova
Suncreen. It's a word we hear a lot of here in Southern California, but it's not a word that I heard much about growing up. Latinos in general don't seem to be too caught up in the need for sunscreen. I guess we figure that because we have darker skin that we won't get sunburned, sun damage and/or sun spots. Wrong! Not only will our darker skin get us all of this, our skin will also get discoloration, dark spots and redness.

If you're already at this stage (and some of us may be, Latina or not), then I would love to introduce you to a product that is working its butt off to reverse the effects - the NEW ARTISTRY® TIME DEFIANCE® UV Defense SPF 50.

The Artistry Time Defiance UV Defense SPF 50 is available exclusively from Amway and not only does it protect your precious skin from sun damage, it also helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots, discoloration and redness. It does this through the use of an exclusive Balanced Brightening Complex that includes ten natural plant extracts known for their brightening, soothing and antioxidant properties that will in return give our skin a beautiful brighter look. All of this and it's also waterproof!

However, if you're anything like me you might be thinking, great... another product I have to stack under my foundation, powder, blush, etc. Well, the Time Defiance UV Defense is an ultra-light formula so it won't give you an ashy look that other sun defense creams leave behind. No excuses! Take care of your beautiful skin, it's the only one you've got.

And as long as we're on the topic of beauty, check out this video from Artistry highlighting some of their beauty must-haves for Summer.
