This Skincare Product Is My New Best Friend!
In the last few years I had decided to make my skin priority because of the acne struggles I faced in the past. Now, I treat my skin with utmost care like a baby, by making sure I am using essential products consistently to keep my skin healthy, and also, by eating well because diet plays a huge role on the health of your skin too.
Taking the time everyday to treat your skin is not only a relaxing experience, like giving yourself an at home facial, but it also benefits your skin to help it look healthier and younger, for a longer period of time.
When I overcame my acne struggles, I was left with some acne scarring which I was self conscious about. So I started to try out different products to help with fading the appearance of the scars overtime. Vitamin C serum is what has helped my skin so much. However, using a product like Vitamin C, it is so important to protect your skin from sun damage by wearing SPF/sunscreen. I always avoided sunscreen because I have not come across one that I felt I could use underneath my makeup. My experience with sunscreen was that it, either left white residue on my face, made my face oily or had a funky scent. Instead I avoided going into the sun as much as I can. After noticing some acne scars still getting “tanned,” not exactly the tan I wanted lol, I knew I had to start wearing sunscreen. I met with a dermatologist around the same time to discuss what I could do about my acne scarring and literally the first thing he told me was, “you know how the saying goes, diamonds are a girls best friend?, well the truth is, face sunscreen should be every girls best friend. You wear your face everyday, handle it like a diamond and it will start shining like one.” He put it in such a way that stuck with me since.
When I first tried out the Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35, it instantly became my new skincare BFF. It is my current go to SPF to wear underneath my makeup daily without having to worry about my T-Zone turning into a mud slide. It smells AMAZING, blends so well into the skin, and dries into a smooth matte finish that lasts all day. It also feels good knowing that I am keeping my skin from aging by protecting it from sun damage because let’s face it we are only getting older but one thing is for sure, I don’t want my face to show it!
