The Most Important Product for Your Skin


Depending on the day, I’m sure you feel like one skincare product is more important than another. Today, for example, I might be tempted to say eye cream, given my slight jet lag from Hawaii. However, eye cream is not the most crucial.

You can use all the anti-aging face products in the world, but if you’re not using sun protection it doesn’t matter.

Ask any dermatologist or esthetician what the single most important skincare product is and they will tell you, sunscreen. If you want to avoid sun damage, premature aging, and melanoma, you should be incorporating sunscreen in your daily skincare routine. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking to avoid all three!

Thankfully, sunscreen is finally getting the attention it deserves, and it’s about time! I love that people are recognizing the effect it has on the overall health of your skin. On top of that, sunscreens have come such a long way. Remember when there was just a handful of options and they would sting your face or make you break out?  If you don’t, consider yourself lucky.

There are so many great sunscreens that actually complement our makeup application instead of messing it up. Being a makeup artist and skincare enthusiast, I have tried far too many to count and I want to share my favorites with you. If you aren’t using the single most important product for your skin, start immediately... like, today!

Here are my current faves… what are yours?
