I use a zillion different moisturizers. It’s not that I’m fickle as much as I’m searching (like you) to find the best moisturizer that will somehow give me perfect skin. Though I’m not going to have perfect skin anytime soon, I’m certainly not going to be accumulating anymore damage either. The one moisturizer you should use every single day to ensure you have beautiful, sun spot and wrinkle-free skin is one with a good sunscreen.
If you’re normal to dry:
I used La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 15 for years in the past and really liked it, but now I’m pumping up my protection by using this one with a big dose of SPF 40. It’s the ideal cream because it isn’t greasy or cause breakouts, it absorbs quickly and fully without any color or scent. Best of all, it contains Mexoryl, a known sunscreen effectiveness enhancer so your protection lasts all day long.
If you’re normal to oily or have sensitive or troubled skin:
Obagi is a medical grade skin care line sold mostly by physicians. I love their Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35. It’s an approved sunscreen of the Skin Cancer Foundation because of its effectiveness that’s meant to be used on compromised skin. I love the feel of this sunscreen and can wear it daily under makeup and not even notice it’s on.
It may not seem like much, but wearing sunscreen daily will hands down keep wrinkles and spotting away longer than if you didn’t use anything at all. It’s a rare product that’s a guaranteed home run.
