Be Kind to Your Skin.

I've recently received several requests for anti-aging products. So, ladies, here it is...drum roll, please. The number one skincare product to combat lines and wrinkles, is sunscreen! That's right. It's not just for days at the beach. I religiously apply sunscreen daily before applying makeup, and certainly before stepping outside my house. The single best way to avoid lines and wrinkles, is to protect your skin from the sun's rays - that means both UVA and UVB rays! My product of choice for the least four years has been Neutrogena Daily Defense SPF 45. I use the untinted version. It's not terribly expensive and it's available in most drugstores. My morning ritual is to apply this cream (bonus: it also moisturizes!) to my face after washing it and before applying any makeup. You should also know that this formula is non-comedogenic, which means it shouldn't cause you to break out. Now I have pretty oily skin, but I have found that this product doesn't contribute overtly to the greasies. So go forth, and arm yourselves with the best wrinkle defense out there: sunscreen!

I have a combination skin so I use the specific one for that skin type. It comes in different types - sensitive, combination and oily.

You can try clinique - lil pricy but anything for the skin. right?

Absolutely, Apple! Thanks for the heads up - I didn't realize the Neutrogena Healthy Defense came in an oily skin-specific formula. I'll have to check that out for sure.

Stay tuned for a post on Clinique's SPF body creme.

My Bad! I just figured that the "healthy defense" doesn't come in different skin types..I was talking about their regular moisturizer...

No worries! I hope they do come out with a moisturizer + SPF made for different skin types, though. My oily skin will thank Neutrogena!
