The Importance of Sunscreen

I talk about sunscreen often but now that I'm thinking about it, I don't think I've ever dedicated an entire blog post strictly to sunscreen. Well if I wasn't foreshadowing enough, or if you couldn't tell from the title, this blog post is sunscreen.

I recently received a bunch of products from DERMA-E, one of my favorite skincare companies. If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't, please stop and do it right now....@lexysilverstein) then you know that I have been worked with DERMA-E on a few different projects.

But this one will be about their sunscreen line. Sunscreen is crucial. We know how important it is. I wear sunscreen everyday, no matter what. I don't care if it is the hottest and sunniest day or if it's snowing in the middle of winter, you can count on the fact that sunscreen will be on any skin that the sun sees. It prevents skin cancer, dark spots, signs of aging, getting burnt, and more. If I was stuck on a desert island I would bring sunscreen with me.

The products I received from DERMA-E are some of the best and innovative sunscreen products I've seen. First up being the Anti-Blemish Clarifying Bi-Phase Toner. I use this toner directly after washing my face. It helps to remove excess oils, reduce redness, and balance the skin’s moisture levels after cleansing.

The next product is the Sun Defense Mineral Oil-Free Sunscreen. This oil-free and lightweight facial formula delivers UVA protection and anti-aging antioxidant defense. I wear this everyday after my entire skincare routine.

The All Sport Performance Face Sunscreen SPF 30 provides UVA protection with water resistance for up to 80 minutes. I use this product before going in the pool or if I am going to be active throughout the day.

The All Sport Performance Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 is a quick-drying, sport sunscreen. It nourishes and protects the skin with water resistance up to 80 minutes. I spray this one on my body always focusing on my shoulders because that's where I burn the easiest. As well, on my hands and neck because those are two places that show aging first.

Finally, my favorite product the Sun Protection Mineral Powder. This powder is the most interesting to me because it is a makeup product that protects you from the sun. It is infused with antioxidants, green tea, and Vitamin E. It also helps to absorb excess oil, keeping your skin looking fresh.

I definitely suggest trying these products. Especially now, during the hottest days of summer.
