As I want to further remind you of the importance of wearing sunscreen each and everyday and with May being skin cancer awareness month, I thought it would be a great time to show you my favorite sunscreens for my face. I think I have preached about the importance of wearing sunscreen everyday, meaning 265 days of the year. Whether you are spending the day indoors or out, it is important for your skin health and to prevent skin cancer. If you don't want to do it for that reason alone, let me tell you this - protecting your skin from the sun will slow down the aging process, meaning less fine lines, wrinkles and skin discolorations. Simply put, you need to wear sunscreen everyday. And your face you needs a different sunscreen than your body.
If there is one product that should be used each and every day, especially in the summer, it is sunscreen. It is a must. It is one of those products that I am most picky about too. I hate the way that most sunscreen feels on my skin; many feel heavy, sticky, oily, greasy and just plain gross on my skin. I can't even begin to tell you how many wasted bottles, cans and tubes of sunscreen that I have thrown away over the years. Just when I think I have found a sunscreen that "will do", I discover something new that throws me for a loop and leaves me wondering how I've lived without it for so long. What have I discovered that I can't live without? Colorescience Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen.
Yay for the summer and spending lots of time outside. I could go on and on about the importance of sunscreen, but I am sure you all know by now that you need to wear sunscreen everyday and that you need to reapply it often. Did you know that you should be using a different sunscreen on your face than you use on your body? The sunscreens that are formulated for your body are often more harsh and could clog pores. Your face needs a more skincare-like version of sunscreen, with a higher SPF too.
