Dr. Taraska's sun protection advice

May 25, 2015

Interview with Dr. Taraska on sun protection, as published in "The Kit Beauty & Fashion" magazine. Dr. Victoria Taraska knows from experience that Winnipeg's freezing winters lead to careless summer behaviour. "Back in the day I used to use baby oil and I also went to tanning beds. I definitely regret that - I got smarter after the teenage years," she says. Now she limits her sun exposure. "on a hot vacation, I definitely want a cabana. I enjoy the warmth, but not lying out in peak times." Her daily dose: Taraska starts every day with SPF 50 mineral makeup. "I like to keep a mineral-powder sunscreen in my purse for those days when you get stuck on a patio," she says. What she wishes we knew: If you hold a hat up to the light and you can see through it, the sun is also getting through. "Hats also need to have a wide brim, at least 4 inches all around. A baseball hat only protects the forehead." Pro protection tip: Taraska applies antioxidant vitamin-C serum under her sunscreen to add free-radical defence.
