I realised while I was writing yesterday’s post that not everyone is aware that if you use a daily sunscreen, and you have your picture taken with a flash (professionally or just for fun), you need to wear the right type of sunscreen to ensure you don’t get flash back.
What I mean by this is that if you wear a sunscreen with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide, the inorganic particles will reflect the camera’s flash – and you will look very pale, i.e. washed out. To get around this, best to use an organic sunscreen without Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide in the Active Ingredients list. I was going to list the organic sunscreens but it would be too long – much easier to remember what to avoid!
An example of a daily sunscreen you can wear and look gorgeous in you photographs is Cancer Council’s Day Wear (not tinted – the tinted versions have Titanium Dioxide).
By the way, I’m not employed by the Cancer Council – I just like their sunscreens. 🙂
