Sun Protecton For The Face

We all know well that long-term sun exposure can cause various skin issues, but sometimes we neglect the face when considering sun protection (no, sunglasses or a hat doesn't always cut-it). Sun protection can sometimes seem like a hassle, especially if you are someone who doesn't burn easily, like myself. Although putting sunscreen on your face seems like a greasy mess or just an unnecessary step, sun protection on your face is still important and can be achieved without feeling like you're clogging every pore.


One of the main reasons why I used to not wear sunscreen on my face was because sunscreen always left my skin feeling greasy, which is a catalyst for breakouts. However, there is not excuse not to wear sunscreen on your face with the Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen Lotion. This sunscreen is made for the face and the oil-free formula keeps it from breaking you out. I use it everyday, even in the winter, and does not break me or make my very-oily skin more oily. This sunscreen is a great pick for those with both dry or oily skin and everything in between.


For some added protection, having SPF 15+ in your makeup is bonus. Makeup with SPF 15 or lower does not cut-it and not strong enough, especially if you will be out-and-about all day. Try finding makeup with an SPF of more than 30 for more effective protection. The Shiseido UV Sun Compact Foundation if a good pick if you want some more coverage. Although your makeup has SPF, unless you are planning on apply a thick layer, it is still important to wear sunscreen underneath the makeup.


The lips are often neglected when considering sun protection, however, like the rest of your face, the lips can also be victim to the sun. The easiest way to protect your lips from getting sunburned is by applying a chapstick with SPF, such as the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15. Many of us may be protecting our lips without even realizing. Many of the chapsticks that you find in drugstores often have a SPF of at least 15, but the more SPF, the better.

How do you protect yourself against the sun?
