SPF and STELLAR

I often get asked why STELLAR products do not contain SPF. That’s a good question. And here is my answer.

Sun damage is the #1 destroyer of good skin and though we can’t completely avoid the sun, SPF certainly does prevent severe damage.

Looking after your skin is absolutely the most crucial first step in creating any fabulous look.

Adding SPF to STELLAR at a strength that is effective (SPF 50 and over), would alter the color of our carefully blended pigments. SPF 15-30 is not strong enough to seriously protect skin all day, without being reapplied several times, and let’s face it, very few people reapply foundation several times a day.

However, I do think it is very important to use SPF every day, for women and men of all ages. A sunscreen of SPF 50 or over should be applied as an independent step in your skin care regime. Apply it over your moisturizer and let it create a barrier for 20 minutes, while you get a coffee, get dressed, answer messages, or makeup your eyes. Then apply foundation and continue on with your normal makeup routine.

I love makeup and the artistic vibe of applying it. But looking after your skin is absolutely the most crucial first step in creating any fabulous look.
