Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the warmer days! I’ve been loving the summer weather and since the days are longer, we are trying to take more trips. Ramiro and I just came back from Palm Springs this past weekend and it was 116 degrees! It was so tempting to stay inside the hotel, where the AC was blasting and it was much cooler. The hotel we stayed at was really beautiful and had a Moroccan vibe to it. It was definitely an “Instagram-Worthy” place and I knew I had to take advantage of doing a mini photoshoot there. Whenever I shoot, I typically wear my usual eyeshadow, foundation and SPF. My absolute favorite SPF is Olay’s Complete All Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 15. This has been in my morning routine for over 10 years now and I swear by this sunscreen.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Olay’s Complete All Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and recently began to be more diligent about wearing SPF every single day, even when I am indoors. In the past, I only wore SPF when the sun was out or when I would go to the beach. I also refrained from wearing SPF with my foundation because I didn’t know whether or not it would blend well with makeup or make my face too greasy. A few years ago, I began to notice a few sunspots on my face, so I started doing a little research and learned that it’s because I’ve been really inconsistent about wearing sunscreen. I also learned that it’s possible to get high levels of UV even on overcast days and SPF is a must even if you are indoors all day. I wish I knew this when I was much younger because my skin would probably have less freckles and more moisture!
Nevertheless, I am happy to be moving towards a healthy skin regiment that works with my current routine. I apply this after washing my face in the morning and re-apply every couple hours. This moisturizer comes in four varieties and I am currently using the one for combination/oily skin. What I love most about this SPF is that it doesn’t make my skin oily even with makeup! The formula is lightweight and absorbs into my skin quickly. I also love how the scent isn’t too overpowering and it provides 48 hours of hydration.
Putting on SPF every day is now my number one priority and I am very happy about how my skin looks and feels with or without foundation! I am a firm believer that prevention is key. I used to tell myself and others, to never leave the house without sunscreen on, but times have changed- and now my rule is to ALWAYS have sunscreen on (even when you’re at home!)
Thank you so much Olay for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.
