Make it a non-negotiable in your routine!
Being holed up at home 24/7 for another chapter of every alteration of quarantine possible doesn’t give us an excuse to skip sunscreen. Sun protection on the daily is as essential as it is to wear masks—although with it, the dreaded, inevitable maskne. Wearing SPF religiously helps protect the skin from intense UV rays, delays skin aging and even decreases the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Sunscreen is easily the most essential step to your skincare routine. There’s really no point in following a daily regimen if you skip the step. A broad-spectrum sunscreen stops the sun’s UV rays from damaging your skin, which can further penetrate deeper into skin and wreak long-lasting havoc. Need more convincing? Applying product on the daily helps brighten dull skin (see: pesky hyperpigmentation) and evens out one’s skin tone.
