Don’t Skip This!! ☀️
Don’t Skip This!! ☀️
One common misconception is that sunscreen is just meant for summer and let me tell you that is a complete lie. Sunscreen is important year round because even on cloudy days the sun’s UV rays are still able to penetrate skin. Even if you plan on staying inside it is still important to use some sort of sun protection from window lighting. Basically, use sunscreen all day. Everyday. I chose the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen for my year-round sun protection needs and here are some reasons Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 why: 1. This sunscreen is lightweight. That means that in the summer I don't have to worry about feeling greasy or like there is an invisible film over my face. It's breathable and once absorbed I can’t even feel it. 2. It protects against UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays cause the common sunburn while UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin causing wrinkles and damage to skin cells leading to premature aging. 3. The formulation is clean and reef safe, which means no oxybenzone, octinoxate, parabens. While sunscreens have a long way to go in the US before being something I desire and enjoy to put on this formulation really helps me feel better about applying my sunscreen knowing the advances in the formulation. Sunscreen has become a huge priority in the beauty industry and now there are many different options to choose from. Here are some of my favorites in different forms. Spray: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Lotion Spray Sunscreen SPF 60 Mineral: alba BOTANICA - Mineral Sunscreen, Sensitive, Fragrance Free, SPF 30 Traditional: BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30

After countless hours of research I found my current skincare routine. As mentioned in my previous post I have pretty oily skin with large pores and texture issues being my biggest skin problems. I discovered an app called Think Dirty that breaks down the ingredients of different skin care, beauty, and household products and gives them as rating based on how good the ingredients are for your body as well as the environment. HIGHLY recommend checking it out but be prepared that you may find some of your favorite products really aren’t that great... As for my routine: In the mornings I wash my face with HONEST - Gentle Gel Cleanser which I love as it is super gentle but still feels like it is really cleaning my face. It has super clean ingredients and smells nice. Then I use the GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner This toner is fairly gentle. I had been using the ordinary toner which is a lot stronger and always made my face burn so I like that this one is a bit more chill plus it has extra ingredients like niacinamide and vitamin C. After that I apply the HONEST - Hydrogel Cream since I have oily skin I wanted to use am oil free moisturizer and I’m obsessed with this one. It is super light weight but really feels like it hydrates. If I am planning to go outside I use the alba BOTANICA - Mineral Sunscreen, Sensitive, Fragrance Free, SPF 30 I chose this one because it had super clean ingredients and I am sensitive to normal sunscreen so I had to find a mineral based one. It’s not greasy and doesn’t leave a white residue or anything so I’m super happy with it. In the evening I again wash with the Honest cleanser and apply the good molecules toner. Then a few nights a week I use the GOOD MOLECULES - Overnight Exfoliating Treatment I’ve only used it a couple times so I haven’t noticed a huge improvement but my skin seems a little less uneven texture wise so I think as I continue to use it it will really help. I gave it 4 stars because it does burn a little but that’s expected for most exfoliators... At night I also use the GOOD MOLECULES - Discoloration Correcting Serum and GOOD MOLECULES - Squalane Oil both of which I like so far! The oil makes me skin super soft and I think with continued use both will show good results. I then use the honest moisturizer and head to bed. When I want a little extra exfoliation I use either the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I really like and has definitely help my texture or the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay (not pictured) which is my savior for my pores. I recommend doing a half water half apple cider vinegar mix because it can be a bit intense with straight vinegar. I highly recommend all of these products so feel free to comment for more info!!!
