I’m sure I’ve preached enough that you already know you need SPF even if you are working in an office all day. But do you need the full out SPF 50+, creamy supercharged? Probably not. I prefer a light-weight, ultra-sheer SPF that layers well with my latest makeup obsession. Some favorites I have mentioned before are the La Mer ‘The SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid’ and Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+. But I am newly smitten with Kate Somerville’s Daily Deflector.
One reason Kate’s is a standout, it is really hydrates the skin. She uses a cutting-edge new delivery system, keeping the sunscreen on the surface of the skin, maximizing efficacy. The SPF doesn’t leave a whitish cast, but actually makes my skin look more radiant. Light-diffusing ingredients create a healthy glow.
The skin care ingredients dive deeper into the skin, fighting wrinkles and tightening. Matrixyl 3000 reduces the depth and volume of wrinkles. I’ve noticed a lot of improvement on those horizontal lines along my forehead. A naturally derived shitake mushroom-based skin tightener has immediate effects on sagging skin and is formulated to gradually strengthen skin’s connective tissue.
There is no excuse when you have a sun screen like this: anti-aging, hydrating and it smells so darn good.
