Spray Now or Feel the Burn Later
When Beauty Locks Horns with the Sun
Written by Carlyn
Tbh, anti-aging is not on my radar when it comes to taking care of my skin. At the ripe age of 22, I’m more focused on avoiding a chin breakout and remembering to take off my makeup before bed. However, recently I heard Dr. Kellett speak on the Marilyn Denis show and I’m starting to think twice about this whole anti-aging thing. Her biggest piece of advice for young people is to start wearing sunscreen daily to avoid the rapid effects of aging due to sun exposure. After hearing this, I knew it was time to start giving a sh*t about the sun. A little attention now will make a big difference later! Aside from being dangerous and increasing my chances of developing the c-word, I’m also keen to avoid looking like Grandma’s old couch for as long as possible.
If you’re new here, the Holy Grail and key to reverse aging is sun protection. Simply put, sunscreen. Since hot girl summer has finally arrived, sunscreen is more important than ever. BUT let me tell you, I don’t like wearing sunscreen. I hate it actually (cue traumatic flashback of my summer camp counselor rubbing layers of thick white cream into my eyes). Thankfully, the skincare game has changed, and sun protection can be more comfortable than ever. The right sunscreen can even have other skin benefits!
Over the past couple weeks, I’ve tested out a few spfs. Some spray, some cream, some mineral, and a few chemical products. Through my extensive trial and error, one sunscreen in particular
has made its way to the top of my roster. My current fav is the SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray by Clear Clinical — the formula is so lightweight and gives me a glowy no-makeup-makeup look. This spf effortlessly absorbs into the skin with no leftover residue or white cast. And better yet, this product was created for oily and acne-prone skin—non-greasy, non-sticky and looks natural under makeup!
