Did you know that it’s absolutely essential to wear sunscreen all year round? It’s true! I didn’t always wear sunscreen—especially in my high school tanning days—but now I feel extremely guilty if I go a day without it!
Why we should wear sunscreen everyday
The sun is one of the biggest environmental stressors that our skin experiences. Exposure to the sun causes dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and lasting skin damage. We can’t control everything about how our skin ages, but wearing sunscreen can go a long way towards maintaining beautiful skin for years to come.
One of the most common things I hear from Cole’s Salon guests is that sunscreen feels heavy and greasy on their skin. I can emphasize, because I’m also very picky about the texture and weight of my skincare products!
Here are some of my favorites:
IMAGE Skincare PREVENTION+ Daily Matte Moisturizer SPF 32+
This is my go-to sunscreen whenever I wear makeup! It provides SPF 32+ as well as microsponge technology to help absorb oil throughout the day. I find it hydrating, without feeling like too much!
Jane Iredale Dream Tint® Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15
This tinted moisturizer is everything! It’s the best weight out of any tinted moisturizer I’ve ever tried. This product has SPF 15, so I locked it in with the Jane Iredale Pressed Powder (SPF 20) for a flawless matte look.
This is a great product to use to refresh your SPR throughout the day.
It doesn’t matter what kind of sunscreen you use—as long as you use something! Trust me, your skin will thank you.
