I get a lot of compliments about having great skin, but the truth is I treat my skin (on my face) pretty poorly! I commit pretty much all the skin sins we’re told to avoid: touching my face, picking acne scars, wearing makeup while I work out, going to bed with makeup on. Yikes! Yes, I know these things are really bad for my skin, and I’m trying hard to break those bad habits. But there is one thing that I do everyday that is really important for keeping my skin intact and protected. I wear a moisturizing, repairing, protecting sunscreen. My everyday fave is Strivectin’s Repair & Protect Moisturizer Broad Spectrum with SPF 30. The brand sent it over for me to review and ever since I received it, I have been using it religously because it does everything it says in its name.
After cleansing my face, I let it air dry, then slather on a heaping dose of this Strivectin cream. It looks and feels slightly greasy and oily to the touch, but it goes on smoothly. The formula is lightweight so it goes on in a pretty thin layer, and it doesn’t clog my pores. It’s a nice moisturizer and a great base for makeup application, if you prefer. Also, it doesn’t leave my skin covered in chalky white marks like some other sunscreens do. It leaves my face feeling soft and smooth, plus I love that it’s doing extra work ‘behind the scenes.’ Of course the SPF 30 protects my skin from UV damage. But this moisturizer also reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by enhancing the natural collagen and elastin in my skin. Strivectin’s patented formula combines next generation antioxidants and NIA-114™ to enhance skin’s age-fighting abilities. “Repair the past, protect the future.” I love that it’s helping to repair the damage I’ve already done to my skin, while protecting it everyday!
