Why: Although we may have overlooked sunscreen in our youth, the recent spate of creases (we’re loathe to call them wrinkles) near our eyes and mouth have made us look down on such follies. Add on the risks of skin cancer, and we’re suddenly the biggest fans of sunscreen to protect our not-quite-as-smooth skin.
Unfortunately, when it comes to suncreens – especially ones you put on your face – not all are created equal. From shiny foreheads to odd smells to clogged pores and extra zits, we’ve seen it all.
For that reason, when it comes time to replace our sunscreen, we look to skincare companies that understand our needs, like Dermaquest.
Dermaquest’s Solar Moisturizer SPF30 is a powerful skin protector, saving our face from UV damage while also firming and tightening the skin, all with an easy application and light scent. The day of goopy facial sunscreens is gone, and hopefully protection from cancer and wrinkles is here to stay. For something a little heavier, Dermaquest ZinClear SPF 30 comes with one essential ingredient – the ultra strong zinc oxide, which quickly blends into the skin without leaving behind any tell-tale white lines. And, if I still get a little sun, I can turn to the ZinClear to help heal the skin as well.
Extra benefits? ZinClear sunscreen is also safe for use after post-professional treatments like microderm abrasions and on the soft skin of those children who are heading out to sled (or swim) in the winter sun.
