Let’s Get “Physical”

One of the easiest ways to preserve your skin is to wear sunscreen every time you plan to head outdoors (no excuses!).  If you think to yourself, “I’m just running out for a few minutes, OR “I’ll be protected in the car”…Think again!  Sun damage can still occur from simply walking to and from your car unprotected over time. A sunscreen I’m currently in love with (thanks to my fab Aesthetician Jessica)  is MDSolarSciences SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Gel.   It’s lightly tinted and is a Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB Sunscreen.  This product is a physical block which means that the active ingredients of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide actually block the sun’s rays (most sunscreens are chemical blocks, which means that their active ingredients absorb the rays).

Pros

Feels super smooth on the skin

Serves as a great primer for foundation

Under $25

Very water-resistant

Works well for acne and rosacea prone skin

Leaves the face feeling matte

Looks great when worn alone

Cons

Due to its water resistance, it is slightly difficult to remove

If you haven’t been wearing sunblock on a daily basis, it’s time to start NOW! Does anyone have a favorite sunblock?
