I know that we're coming to the end of the Summer and you may be wondering the relevance of this post and competition now, but there is never a wrong time to protect your skin from sun damage. Even in the middle of Winter, the sun's rays can be damaging. Especially in Winter in this country if the past few years are anything to go by.
Five years ago I used to look at my sister's skin with concern. She'd developed this brownish pigmentation around her hairline on her forehead and it was quite obvious. She told me that it was nicknamed the pregnancy mask and was in fact chloasma. Fast forward two and a half years and it's my forehead that I'm looking at in concern.
Ever since I've had The Boy, I have this hyper pigmentation around my scalpline and it's not the most attractive thing to look at. Most of the time I can cover it up with foundation, but I know it's still there. The key that I have found to preventing it from becoming incredibly obvious is to ensure that you don't develop a tan around that area, so I always put SPF15+ on my face in the Summer. It helps a lot.
Fade Out Protecting Day Cream SPF15 is an excellent protecting cream which is light, non-greasy and absorbs quickly. Foundation sits on top of it really nicely.

- Penetrates deep into the skin's outer layers, preventing the melanin from reaching the upper layers of the skin – skin appears lighter
- Specially formulated with SPF15, skin is protected from both the ageing and darkening effects of the sun – skin looks younger
- Targets problem areas of hyper-pigmentation, skin discolouration, age spots and sunspots – dark areas fade
- Enhances the cell renewal process, slowing down and inhibiting the formation of further dark spots – skin remains lighter."
Now I'm no dermatologist and I've not been using it long enough to back up the claims made that it has a 100% success rate of looking lighter. I've not got any fancy tools and I'm just one person. However, it is a rich moisturising cream with a good SPF in it and it only costs £9.18 for a tub that lasts a long time. Surely that's a good enough reason to use it. And it it does happen to lessen the effect of my pregnancy mask (three years after his birth!) then I'll be a happy bunny!
