Reapplying sunscreen can be annoying. It’s laborious, can mess with your makeup, and it’s hard not to convince yourself it’s doing more damage than good–clogging pores when it should be protecting your skin from irritation. There are many good alternatives to slathering on thick, oily sunscreen.
Cream for your Face, Cream for your Body
With a day sunscreen, or night cream, you should always use a separate cream for your body and your more sensitive skin: face, neck, and chest. Hopefully this separation is already a part of your skin care routine, but this is especially important to stick to with regards to sunscreen. Sunscreens work hard to protect you from damaging UVA and UVB rays, and a high-quality sunscreen is both protective and easy on your sensitive, beautiful skin. Medical grade makeup offered by Britannia Dermedics balances protection from the sun and maintenance of hydrated, clean skin.
Mineral Makeup – with SPF
Mineral sunscreen–such as Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush– provides an alternative to the daily slather-on. What’s more is that this type of sunscreen encourages sun protection by being easier to reapply and compact enough to keep in your bag or on your person.
A good sunscreen goes a long way to fight the signs of aging and reduce irritation. However, reapplication is essential to effective sunscreen use. Applying a light sunscreen in the morning will only protect your skin for a few hours. Reapplication is easier with a mineral sunscreen, and getting in the habit may be easier to deal with when a light powder is required instead of a cream. The mineral powder is sheer and available in matte or shimmering finishes–enhancing your healthy glow in whatever way you prefer. The powder is also available in a few SPF strengths to accommodate different skin sensitivitiess. Sunscreen should be used day in and day out.
Other sunscreen options are light, non-oily creams that are available through all medical-grade lines endorsed and provided by Britannia Dermedics.
