Why is sunscreen so important?

Being out in the sun can increase your risk of getting skin cancer and early skin aging. Sunscreen helps to protect your skin from the sun. So apply sunscreen of at least SPF 15 everyday! It also helps prevent sunburns!

How I use the sunscreen:

First I cleanse and tone my face. After I apply the sunscreen. Sometimes I wait a few minutes to let the sunscreen abosorb into my skin before applying my moisturizer but most of the time I apply my moisturizer right after I apply the sunscreen. I then follow up with eye cream and apply my makeup. I do not reapply the sunscreen through out the day because I usually have makeup on.

My thoughts:

Overall, I really like this sunscreen. It hasn’t broken me out (Btdubs! I have acne-prone skin), it does not smell bad and the formula is not too greasy so it absorbs into the skin pretty nicely. I have deep skin so I can not say how well this sunscreen does at preventing sunburns. However, I have noticed that my dark marks have not been getting darker so that might be because of the sunscreen or because I am using other products that help with brightening and evening my face, who knows! My skin complexion on my face is getting darker because I am getting tanner but I am not getting as dark as I usually get in comparison to last summer where I did not wear sunscreen at all. That is saying a lot because since I am an early education teacher I spend half of my days outside in the summer so you would think I would be like 20 shades darker but I’m not. I have gotten darker but not as dark as usual and I do not even reapply the sunscreen. Usually, I like to get as dark as possible in the summer because it evens out my skin tone and I love deep chocolate skin but lately I have been trying to block the sun because I don’t want it to damage my skin and I don’t want to get too dark for the foundations and concealers that I already own. Speaking of makeup I will say this sunscreen makes my foundations look a little light in photos. The ingredients in most sunscreens will do that. Also this sunscreen leaves my skin with a blueish white cast but my moisturizer usually gets rid of that.  I have oily skin and this sunscreen does not leave my skin oily and does not make my makeup oily. Oh yeah beauties, keep this sunscreen away from your eyes! It will sting them like no other! But I will say beauties I do like this sunscreen and when it runs out I will repurchase it since the price is good, it does not break me out and it seems to be blocking the sun! Buy it on Amazon!
