Growing up, I used to hate how fair and freckly my skin was. Every summer, I would make it my full time job to get as tan as possible despite how bad it was for my skin. I would spend countless hours at the beach during the summers of both my high school and college years so I could get as dark as possible – which I did eventually after multiple bad burns!
Now that I have approached that age where early signs of aging are becoming more apparent on my face, I have been investing in the best products possible and this definitely includes sunscreen protection. Let’s be real, getting wrinkles and sunspots is not something I want. Skinceuticals is a dermatologist created brand whose products contain the best ingredients to correcting and preventing environment damage to the skin which includes the sun.
These products are essential for summertime. I am seriously obsessed with how these products look on my face when I put them on and how effective they work. My first order of business is always applying a antioxidant serum enriched in vitamin C to prevent my face from future damage and aging. I have a lot of of freckles on my face but this serum manages to keep my tone nice and even. Next, I apply the Physical Fusion UV Defense which has a universal tint that works on all skin tones so it makes skin look amazing without looking greasy. No makeup needed! Last, a new to me product that my mom purchased is the Eye Defense Product that is a great texture and provides optimal coverage for the eye area which tends to be more sensitive to regular sunscreen products. It also has a tint to it so it covers up any dark circles (added benefit!)
With a long weekend coming up, I am sure you are gearing up for some sun and I couldn’t recommend these products enough!
