- Yes, you really should be wearing sunscreen daily - even in the winter or when it's cloudy - to protect your skin from short- and long-term UV damage.
- La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 is the best face sunscreen because it's a broad spectrum sunscreen that's as comfortable to wear as it is good for your skin.
I don't think you need me to go into all the possible annoyances when it comes to wearing sunscreen, especially on your face. A lot of formulas are seriously lacking in the comfort and "ease of use" departments. And yet, you really should be wearing it every single day, regardless of season or level of cloud cover. Ain't no rest for the wicked, or for UV rays.But from pilling to white cast to that heavy, oil-slicked feeling, there are plenty of reasons why you might hesitate to reach for your bottle in the morning. Let's face it - there are some dud sunscreens, but there are also great options to be found once you know where to look. The trial-and-error is well worth it, I promise.
After all, we're not just talking anti-aging here - sunscreen use is vital for cancer prevention and your overall long-term health.
