I’m not sure if this comes as a surprise but I don’t use a moisturizer in the day at all. On a daily basis, I apply a vitamin C serum on my face and sunscreen after cleansing my face. Is that sufficient? Well, yes for me. I have a combination skin type with quite an oily T-zone. I’ve found through experience that using a moisturizer with a sunscreen doesn’t work well. My face felt so heavy with all the moisturizing ingredients plus makeup and so I’ve been skipping that step for quite awhile now.
I love features on sunscreens but it’s never possible for me to test out all the products out there. There are some products I probably won’t get a chance to review. Here are reviews on two products which Paris Beaverbanks of My Women Stuff have recently written and are probably of interest to some of you.
I should be pleased that I am using the safest and most effective sunscreen - Keys Soap Solar Rx Therapeutic Sunblock SPF30 (Broad Spectrum Sunblock UVA & UVB Sun Protection with Nano Zinc-Oxide) – as rated by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) according to their latest investigations into 952 name-based sunscreens. In fact, I also own Lavera SPF40 Neutral Sunblock, rated the sixth safest and most effective in the list.
I’m a bit unhappy because I discovered a brand new pigmented spot near the corner of my left eye. This, despite the skin care products I’ve been using! I’ve been mulling over the reason and I think I found the answer in a little window located to the left side of my bed. While it is covered, there is a little gap that lets in some early morning sunlight. I think that’s causing the damage. But the question is, why wasn’t there any noticeable damage before as the window has always been there?
