Wear sunscreen. Everyday #111

Years ago, I worked at one of the big skincare companies. While I was there, I learned a lot about business and marketing and what makes the world run -- but most interesting to people who know what I did back then, I learned the secret to beautiful skin.

Wanna know what it is? It's nothing sexy: You have to wear sunscreen, and you have to do it every day.

That's it!

Now, all sunscreens are not created the same. I prefer barrier sunscreen (those with zinc) vs. chemical sunscreen. One, barrier sunscreen just makes sense to me - you need a physical barrier between you and the sun. Two, I don't like the smell of chemical sunscreen. And finally, I don't understand how chemical sunscreen works, so I like to stick to things I understand.

So I have a rotating cast of facial sunscreen - I never leave the house without them. Anthelios is my first love, but when I need something lighter I go for the Olay complete. (This particular bottle was sent to me by Olay, but it's definitely one of my old stand bys. I buy it all the time.) The Alba Botanica is nice too, but the fragrance is too strong for me, so I don't think I'll be purchasing another bottle when this one runs out.

ANTHELIOS SX DAILY MOISTURIZING CREAM

ALBA BOTANICA EVEN ADVANCED SEA MOSS MOISTURIZER

The part that's tricky for me is finding a body lotion with SPF that doesn't make me smell like the beach. My dermatologist sold me the Suntegrity -- it's not fragrance free, but the orange smell is quite nice. I don't mind it, but I do mind the $29 price tag for a teeny tiny bottle.

Do you know of a nice body lotion with SPF? I prefer a barrier sunscreen, but if you have one you love, I'm all ears.

SUNTEGRITY ALL NATURAL MOISTURIZING BODY PROTECTION, BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30 - 4 oz

(In a pinch, I'll use the Olay on my body, but it's a bit sticky if it's hot outside.)
