Had a fantastic morning the other day - thanks to Lidl!
Lidl organized lectures about skincare and how to make a perfect make-up. First of all the place was well-chosen and ideal for a group of 25 persons - nice & modern. Secondly the speakers were real professionals - dermatogist dr. Katinka Pónyai and beautician Doris Szabo.
Dr Katinka Pónyai's lecture was even a bit scary :) but so informative. You can never talk too much about the harmful UVA & UVB rays and what they can cause to our skin.
It's good to remember that UVA rays are the ones that play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (A for aging!), while UVB rays are the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn (B for burning!). UVB plays also a key role in developing skin cancer.
Since both UVA &UVB are harmful, we need protection from both kinds of rays. It's recommended to wear sunscreen with SPF of 15 in the city when you are not that exposed to the direct sun and SPF of 50 when you are laying on a beach, sitting in the sun shine etc.
There can be natural changes in our skin, especially on face, neck or decollete. For example red spots can occur. They usually come and go. But if a spot or other mark in the skin doesn't disappear in 3 months, and if the colour changes or it grows, have it checked as it can be a tumor.
Doris Szabo gave a very detailed tips how to apply make-up, which looks best on you. After the lectures there were 4 make-up artists creating new faces to all of us by Lidl's Cien products. I got a pretty blue smokey eyes!
And we received a goody bag! I will come back to that after testing the products.
