Did you know that your perfume is likely to contain alcohol? Which, when applied to your exposed skin (neck, décolletage and behind the ears) during daylight hours, causes it to be come oh-so-photosensitive to sunlight. This means your skin is more likely to suffer from sunburn, leading to wrinkles, pigmentation and possibly even skin cancer.
Instead, spray your perfume onto your wrists. (Just don’t rub them together – this bruises the notes, altering the scent.) Or, spray onto the skin under your clothes. (Avoid spraying it onto your actual clothes, as fragrance can stain fabrics!) Heat helps emit the perfume from your body, so body parts like your inner elbows and knees are also wonderful places.
