Summer is here and many of us are looking for the best sunscreen for our skin. There is a fine line between a healthy glow and unhealthy sun exposure. Once the damage is done, it is very costly to reverse. Our best advice when it comes to sunscreen is simple, apply your sunscreen every day. Make it part of your daily beauty routine so that your skin is always protected.
Now lets teach you how to apply your sunscreen correctly. Sunscreen should be the last product you apply to your face and neck. Remember to first cleanse, tone your skin, then apply your face serum, eye cream and moisturizer. After you have applied these, then you should apply your sunscreen. When applying rub a small amount onto your hands. Rub to warm up a bit and then gently pat on your face and neck. The goal is not to create a white film on your skin, simply to add an invisible shield between the sun and your skin.
If you are going to be in the sun actively, such as if you are going to be at the beach, a park or simply outside; you may want to reapply at midday to assure your skin is protected. You can safely apply sunscreen over your makeup throughout the day.
A good product will go on sheer and leave your skin soft, not shiny or oily. Some of our favorite picks for daily sunscreen inlcude La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Dry Touch Gel Cream Anti Shine.
