Six Sunscreen Products For Your Face
Sunscreen creams are necessary year round, especially when you plan to spend long periods of time outdoors on a hot, sunny day.
Sun-rays contain ultraviolet rays that penetrate deep into skin tissues and destroy natural binding elements that keep the skin intact, making it loosen up over time - not just on your body but on your face as well.
The facial skin tissues are very soft and get easily tanned and damaged when exposed to sun rays for long duration. In other words, being in the sun without sunscreen will certainly speed up the aging process.
Nobody wants that. Period.
Fortunately, there of tons of different sunscreen creams and lotions available that are effective at protecting both your body and face.
Here are six sunscreen product suggestions for you to choose from the next time you find yourself at the store (or online):
Neutrogena is known for having great skincare products - this sunscreen is no different. This sunscreen has an SPF 50, is lightweight in consistency and has little to no smell. This sunscreen is also hypoallergenic which is ideal if you have sensitive skin.

Other than having a ridiculously long product name, this sunscreen from Clinique is gentle enough for everyday application on the face without feeling too heavy on the skin. Another fact is that it can be used everyone as it is intended for all skin types.

A second sunscreen option from Neutrogena is their Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock. Not only does this sunscreen have a high SPF, it is also "break out free". Those of us with acne prone skin can use this one without worrying about our skin freaking out. This sunscreen can be applied to both face and body.

KISS MY FACE FACE FACTOR SUNSCREEN FOR FACE & NECK SPF 30
Although this sunscreens' SPF is a little lower (30) that the previous ones mentioned, this one is formulated for the face and neck area. We've all been told to protect the neck area as it ages easier and faster than the face, so this sunscreen will definitely come in handy just for that reason alone. On the plus side, the tube is thin/small enough to fit nicely in your purse.

DR. DENESE SPF 30 DEFENSE DAY CREAM
Somewhat pricier than the other sunscreens listed, Dr. Denese Defense Day Cream is a BB cream with "self-adjusting melanin technology", meaning that it will self adjust to your skin tone (similar to L'Oreal's Pure Magic BB Cream). This sunscreen is great for priming the skin before makeup application. The formula dries matte which is awesome for those of us with oily skin.

LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 60 ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID
The best was left for last. This sunscreen fluid from La Roche-Posay has so many benefits that is it simply one of the best options for sunscreen. It has the high SPF 60, anti-oxidants for extra skin protection, light formula that is easily absorbed by your skin, and a matte finish. Apply this to wear by itself, or as a primer under makeup.

Hopefully, these sunscreen recommendations listed gave you a good starting point if you have been searching for a sunscreen to try out.
Most of these are lightweight, non-greasy, without too much fragrance and high in SPF. Some are developed for oily skins, others for dry ones.
Select the cream that suits you best. Trying out one or several creams can help guide you to stick with the one that works best on your skin.
Always keep in mind that these sunscreens should be applied in the morning before going out - even under your makeup, especially if your foundation of choice does not have sunscreen in it.
Effective skin care begins with taking protective measures. It is not limited to applying your regular skin care products. A good sunscreen lotion should be added to your everyday morning routine.
There is nothing better than taking precautions and preserving your skin's delicate nature over time.
