Apply a moisturizer with SPF
The best way to prevent wrinkles and protect your skin is by wearing sunscreen daily on your face. If only someone had given me this tip when I was a teenager! To be sure a day never goes by without protecting my face, I wear a day cream daily that contains a minimum of SPF 15. I use this before applying my makeup. Tons of moisturizers incorporate SPF 15 or SPF 30 into their formula. I tend to mix up what I use based on sale prices or free sample offers.
A few I highly recommend include: Olay Regenerist, Aveeno Smart Essentials, Lumene Vitamin with Age Defying Artic Cloudberry.
Cleanse on the go with pre-moistened towelettes
As a busy Mom, I’m often squeezing in my exercise and running in between drop off and pick up time for the kids. This generally leaves zero time to shower after a workout. My strategy to be sure I clean off the sweat and stay fresh includes ALWAYS using wipes with cleanser on them. This is an easy way to wash and rinse when on the go. Plus it keeps my face clean and then enables me to freshen up my makeup. My favorite cleansing wipes are from the “Yes to Carrots” brand and I use their “Yes to Cucumber” wipes or their “Yes to Blueberry” wipes which also incorporates apple and lemon peel to cleanse and moisturize all in one.
The best way to battle breakouts is a good offense. Three-step products on the market have been increasing in popularity since the growth of products like Pro-Activ. Olay Professional just introduced a new three-step “Acne Protocol” that includes a pore clarifying cleanser, a skin clearing treatment, and a complexion renewing lotion. Olay recommends using their system twice daily and within four weeks it should really improve your acne according to their studies.
