One of the products I have been most neurotic about using for years on my face is a good sunscreen. For the last 20 yrs I have not left the house without it on - ever. Our harsh sun is one of the reasons our skin ages if we don't protect it.
Not all sunscreens for the face are created equal though. I find alot of them just too greasy or heavy and leave the skin looking oily. Or they clog the pores and I get break outs. Afew of my favourites are the ones above......
The Clinique Super City Block was the one I first started using years ago and wore for many years. It is not greasy at all and has a slight tint in it so sometimes that was enough to put on my skin without makeup (I was alot younger then!) And I found it really did protect my skin all day.
The second one that I swapped out the Clinique for , only because I wanted to have a sunscreen in my moisturiser, is the Dermaquest Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF15. Even if I use a different moisturiser I put this on as well - I figure these days my skin can never be over hydrated! It is so light and the skin absorbs it beautifully.
The Jurlique one is also light and I use this one in my kit for work. It seems to sit nicely on normal to dry skin. Another one that is not expensive but a really nice product too is the Olay sunblock. Out of alot of the brands that I have tried these ones stand out.
I believe if we're going to look after our skin with lots of expensive products to hydrate and plump and smooth the skin , then we need to protect if from the sun so we don't undo all the good work that these products are doing ...... have a great week!
I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to!
