If there’s one piece of skincare advice that I think we’ve all heard before, it’s to wear sunscreen every day— yes, that means rain or shine, 365 days a year. While usually, you’ll have no problem slathering some sunscreen on as you lay on the beach under the scorching sun, the last thing most people want to do every morning is put a formula that’s super thick and smells of an overly-processed coconut on their face.
No matter your skin type, UV radiation from the sun and other sources can cause dangerous, long-lasting damage to your skin. Sunscreen isn't just about protecting your skin from sunburn; it also reduces the risk of developing skin cancers, age spots, wrinkles, and sagging.
Wearing sunscreen is very much one of those important things everybody should do (like flossing) but rarely do. However, there are many different formulas to use and many ways to incorporate them into your daily routine that won’t make it a sticky, greasy hassle.
By using a sunscreen/moisturizer hybrid formula you can consolidate steps in your daily skincare routine. The hydrating formulas give you the benefits of sun protection without the white gloppy mess. And, it makes it that much easier to apply, so no more excuses about forgetting to put on your sunscreen.
