Product Pick: Sunscreens for every skin type!

Considering my little run-in with the sun over Memorial Day weekend, this week's product picks are all about sun protection! The key to sunscreen is simple...you just have to USE IT! Finding a product that suits you well will help you feel more comfortable using it regularly, therefore improving the likelihood that you will actually use it and preventing this:
Super sexy, right?!
Not all sunscreens are made equally. When choosing a sunscreen, you have to consider how the texture will work with your skin type and weigh out the benefits of irritating ingredients verses adequate UV protection. Generally speaking, higher SPF sunscreen (SPF 30+) will cause more irritation without adding significantly more UV protection. Below you can match your skin type with the appropriate product! Additionally, many of the options below contain skin beneficial ingredients like antioxidants to keep your skin healthy while in the sun.

Combination Skin

  • A sunscreen with a lightweight texture will be best for you. These products are AMAZING, you won't even know you are wearing sunscreen (especially the one for your face)!


Oily Skin

  • Oily skin can be really tricky because many sunscreens have an oily texture by nature. I recommend this product by Peter Thomas Roth and follow up with a powder (that also includes SPF) that will keep your skin shine-free throughout the day. This great combination works really well for me:


Dry Skin

  • The most options exist for people with dry skin not prone to breakouts. An emollient moisturizer with sunscreen will be perfect, I recommend these products that also contain antioxidants!


Sensitive Skin

  • If you have rosacea or sensitive skin you should choose a product that uses titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide as the active ingredients. These are excellent recommendations:


Now that you have a better understanding as to why certain types of products are better for each skin type, you will be able to protect your skin from UV rays on a daily basis and feel comfortable doing it!

I hope this helps a lot!

  4. No doubt these are some valuable tips, but i would say one should give priority to visit a dermatologist or Proktologe. Once i suffered from skin disease and i went for checkup to a Proktologe in Düsseldorf and i became alright after a one week treatment.

  6. Skin is the very sensitive part of our body. It is very necessary to take its proper care to make it beautiful and healthy. Some people exercise daily to fit themselves and tighten their skin. Your blog post describing the face skin treatment is exceptionally great. It is very important to use skin care creams from sun stroke. vendajes neuromusculares
