Wearing sunscreen on your face is important all year round, not just in summer, so I’ve rounded up my favorite sunscreens for winter for you to choose from if you’re considering applying one yourself. I wear sunscreen every day for a few reasons. First, it actually contains ingredients in it naturally that fight acne and wrinkles, without even advertising that it does so. These ingredients include zinc oxide and oxybenzone, just to name a few, but there are also others. These ingredients also act as a sunscreen for the skin and even make it look more toned and refined. I prefer oil free sunscreens for the best protection. These will moisturize your skin during the winter, along with protect it. Don’t leave your house without one of the following sunscreens for winter. You’ll see clearer skin, along with a more even skin tone as well. Winter sun can offer the same damaging UV rays that summer does, and even on cloudy days, your skin can take a hit. Try these out and let me know what you think!
1. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55 or Higher
Let’s start with my personal favorite of all sunscreens for winter, shall we? I’ve been using this product for years because it’s lightweight, reduces breakouts, makes my skin look sheer, soft and toned, and also reduces fine lines. Its high SPF level also helps prevent sun damage on all levels. I personally love that it goes on easily, absorbs quickly in my skin and it’s never greasy or sticky when applying it. I use it in the morning after I shower before I start my day. I also use it at night sometimes as a general moisturizer, since many forms break me out. You can get it for around $10 at drugstore.com.
