I didn’t start wearing daily sunscreen until I was in my 20s. I know, I know… I should have known better. Actually, I did know better. I just wasn’t focused on that (very important) part of my skincare routine yet. Instead of applying it each day, I would reserve it for languid beach days, long hikes, and any other time I knew I’d be out in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Basically, I did the bare minimum.
Since then, I’ve mended my ways, and I apply SPF 30 or higher every single day. In hindsight, I have sunscreen serums to thank for this improvement. Sunscreen serums are just what they sound like—hybrid products that combine traditional sunscreen with active ingredients to treat and protect the skin in one fell swoop. Since they combine two products and two steps in one, they make my morning skincare routine simple. As someone who has a tendency to be lazy and take the path of least resistance, trust me when I say these products can save you time, money, and, most importantly, sun damage.
