It’s May and summer is just around the corner! I can tell because we are having amazing weather and it has been an unusually warm (and very dry!) spring here in Alberta. And summer days mean sunny days so it’s time to dig out those SPF products!
That being said, I never did put away my facial sunscreen. In the last year or so, I haven’t stopped using it. I have been using sunscreen year round on my face. It could be a beautiful sunny day out or the dead of winter and I still used SPF on my face. Trust me – even when it’s cloudy and overcast outside, the suns rays still penetrate the clouds and you still need protection. A dear friend of mine learned this the hard way years ago – she didn’t wear sunscreen because it was overcast all day but she still burned! We all took that as a lesson learned and became a bit more sun smart.
The face sunscreen I use right now has one downfall: it is just a sunscreen. It’s not a moisturizer so because of that, I always have to apply a moisturizer before I apply the sunscreen. It’s totally worth doing everyday but if I could skip one step and find a two-in-one product that’s a moisturizer and a sunscreen, I wouldn’t say no! 😉
