The 15 Best Sunscreens For Every Skin Type!
One thing every celebrity has in common in their skincare regime is their obsession with sunscreen. I honestly think that this is one OCD that is totally justified, especially considering that melanoma (a type of skin cancer) is on the rise and excessive sun exposure is responsible for about 80% of our skin’s aging. For those of you who don’t know, sun exposure it breaks down the skin’s collagen and elastin which in turn causes wrinkles. I’m surprised how many women saunter about in broad daylight sans sunscreen despite knowing how harmful sun exposure can be.
Sunscreens have come a long way from being greasy, white, icky pastes. Today, they come in more effective and skin-friendly variants, and there’s a sunscreen for every skin type. Seriously girls, this is one step in your beauty regime that you just can’t afford to miss. Here’s our list of some of the best sunscreens for every skin type.
