Everyday Face

Finding the perfect everyday sunscreen for your face is like finding the perfect pair of jeans - one size does not fit all. The perfect sunscreen is one that you love and will want to wear everyday, rain or shine.  It should be the foundation of your morning routine, as basic as brushing your teeth. For me, I like sunscreens that balance out my combination skin, something light with a slightly matte finish.  For everyday, whether you're spending the day at the office or chauffeuring your kids around town, you need to love your sunscreen.  I've included a list of my favorites.  Keep in mind, these are not high-powered sunscreens meant to protect for hours in the sun or a day at the beach.  These are for days with limited sun exposure…work days.  (If you work outside, I recommend using water-resistant sunscreens so checkout my Water + Sunscreen article for recommendations.)  Here are a few of my favorites…
Tip- If you're looking to change sunscreens (or start using SPF for the first time) and don't want to waste money on trial and error, take a trip to your local pharmacy or shop with a nice selection of sunscreen testers.  Go in the morning with a clean face and pick one to try.  It's not enough to squirt some on the top of your hand, sniff and go.  Apply to your face and neck like you would at home and see how it wears throughout the day.
