Beauty Shop: Clinique Sun SPF 30 Body Cream
Here in NYC, it's truly chilly today in a way that reminds me that big coats and scarves and knit hats aren't so far away, and I love it. With weather like this, though, it seems like even the most responsible sunscreen-wearers tend to forget that temperature has no influence on the negative effects of the sun. In other words, just because you're not frolicking on a beach in 90 degree weather, doesn't mean you can lay off the sunscreen--on both the face and the body.
Having grown up in Hawaii (and thus, perpetually on the beach) in the days before skin cancer was such a buzzword, I always cringe inwardly when I think about all those hours I spent tanning myself to a crisp in the water or on the sand, blissfully unaware of the dangers, not to mention the premature aging I was probably subjecting myself to. Because of this, I am now especially careful when it comes to sun exposure, applying sunscreen religiously every single day, even when it's cloudy outside. I've been using Clinique's SPF 30 for the last few years, and love it--it's oil-free, super gentle, and it's got a great texture. Add in the fact that the technology developed by Clinique's dermatologists boasts anti-aging benefits and antioxidants, and I'm pretty much sold. You can buy it HERE. xo
