If you’re compiling a list of New Year’s resolutions, you may want to think for a minute about what changes your beauty routine could use. Although you probably don’t need a full makeover, there is one step you might be missing out on that could do wonders for your skin.
If you’re not slathering on the sunscreen every morning before you do your makeup and head outside, you’re doing your skin a disservice. It needs protection from the sun’s harsh rays even when you’re not at the beach or hanging for hours in the great outdoors.
According to Allure magazine, the challenge is finding a sunscreen that gives you enough protection without feeling thick and greasy. Heavy formulas can make your makeup slide around and cause excess shine. Luckily, many makeup products include SPF, like Face Tint with SPF 15, so you know they’ll blend right in. Sheer sunscreens, wipes and powders also work well, so try something like Daily Sun Protection Wipes SPF 30.
