Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product out there. I get asked this question, and my answer is always sunscreen. It’s so much easier to prevent aging by using good sunscreen.
UV Rays damage the skin in many ways. The first is UVA rays which cause sunburns that damage the skin. UVB Rays can cause premature aging in the skin.
One of my favorite sunscreen products right now is by Colorescience. They have a range of sunscreens in the sunforgettable total protection face shield category. The sunscreen I purchased is in the color glow. If you are fair-skinned, then you will love this shade.
Sunforgettable is a mineral-tinted sunscreen that is Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sweat-resistant, water-resistant, and fragrance-free. It guards against blue light, pollution, and UV lights.
Some of the ingredients are Zinc oxide which protects against UVA and UVB rays; niacinamide which reduces lines and wrinkles; glycerin to hydrate the skin; and antioxidants. Some other ingredients help reduce redness and smooth and calm the skin, which is excellent for sensitive skin people. Iron oxides contained in the sunscreen helps to protect your skin from damage caused by UVA light.
Sunforgettable has a grading scale of PA+++, which with this level shields your skin from the damaging effects of UVA rays.
You will want to shake the bottle well before applying this sunscreen.
Tinted sunscreens are great all year round, especially in the summer, as they are pretty low maintenance. The benefit of a tinted sunscreen is it takes away the white cast that some sunscreens have when applied, plus it gives you a little color and imparts a healthy-looking glow.
This particular shade imparts a luminosity to the skin, which I love. It’s very hydrating and looks good in photos. If you have a more oily skin type, you may not care for the glow it adds to your skin. It wears very well on the skin.
Colorescience offers a wide range now in tinted sunscreens that include glow and bronze.
You get a 1.8oz bottle for $42, and the container is great to throw in your purse, gym bag, or suitcase.
If you want to try the face shield flex, it contains pigment adjusters that adapt to your skin tone. These colors come in four shades: fair, medium, tan, and deep. This bottle comes in the same 1.8oz travel-friendly container with a price of $45.
ColoreScience makes a multi-purpose eye cream called Total Eye 3 in 1 Renewal Therapy with a Broad Spectrum SPF 35 sunscreen.
The skin around the eye area is much thinner than the rest of the face, making it more prone to wrinkles and fine lines. The eye cream has a camouflaging effect that brightens the undereye, reduces puffiness, and hydrates the delicate under-eye area.
The tip is cooling to your under eyes, and a little goes a long way with this product. When dispensing it on the skin, you will want to use a light hand. You do not need to use another eye cream when applying this product. Total Eye 3 in 1 is paraben-free, vegan, fragrance-free, and comes in four shades.
