When I used to be pregnant with Connor (and for nearly the whole 12 months after she was born) I wasn’t good about carrying sunscreen. I wore little or no.
(OK…I didn’t put on any in any respect.)
It started out from a cautionary standpoint. I used to be freaked out about chemical compounds and every part I used to be consuming (apart from the huge quantities of frozen waffles, in fact) and placing on myself doubtlessly affecting the infant, however then, properly…it morphed right into a long-term dangerous behavior. I used to be additionally so exhausted from merely simply residing on the time that I couldn’t deal with having to do one other factor within the morning, so I simply stopped utilizing sunscreen.
I used to be fascinated with this as I obtained prepared this morning. I don’t have anyplace particular to go — only a common Thursday — however I grabbed, not one, however two (!) sunscreens for my face from my rest room shelf.
Some peeps (like me now) like layering a chemical sunscreen with a bodily sunscreen (here’s the difference between them). That’s what I’ve been doing this summer time.
After I wash my face, I do a layer of Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce SPF 50+ on my face and neck, wait a couple of minutes for it to sink in, then do one other layer of Clinique SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face on high. This explicit mixture works properly for me, particularly beneath make-up.
And generally, if I’m feeling up to it, I’ll additionally do a couple of sprays of Supergoop! x Milly Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 on high of my make-up.
Is it overkill? Perhaps.
But my pores and skin’s doing fairly properly this summer time (knocks on wooden), and I’ve been breakout-free for months.
I’m extra delicate to solar than ever, although, which I believe has to do with the Biologique Recherche P50 1970 I’ve been utilizing each evening. It’s a reasonably aggressive acid toner.
How about you? Do you layer completely different sunscreens collectively to make your personal tremendous sunscreen cocktail, or are you a single sunscreen man or gal?
