This is How I Protect my Skin


Spring has sprung, which means the sun is getting stronger – and for those of you who doesn’t like sunscreen, there’s a lot of other innovative ways to protect your skin.

Sunscreens can feel sticky or just mess up your makeup – which I’m not a big fan of. But I’m still very aware of protecting my skin against the sun, all the time. I will never leave my apartment without an SPF on my face.

I use this as an extra layer of skin after my day cream – if my day cream doesn’t have enough SPF in it, I’ll use this for extra protection. It’s mineral based with a lot of antioxidants and the small pigments makes your skin super smooth and with the most perfect finish before your makeup.

This is what comes closest to a sunscreen – but without the sticky consistency. It’s a perfect BB cream with a good amount of SPF in it, which makes it perfect for the beach or doing some sort of sports.

This is such a wonderful and innovative product – it’s a serum foundation with SPF40! I haven’t found any other brands that does this. So not just because it has a lot of good ingredients in it, but also because it leaves your skin looking super beautiful. It’s thin and super easy to work with – and your skin will look refreshed and natural.

This works as a primer, even though it isn’t. But it smooth out your skin super easy and makes it perfect before your foundation. Your skin is left mat and smooth, so if you like a more mat look, than a dewy one – this is for you.

One of my favorite primers! Nars makes so many good products and their new primers just got added to their bestsellers. This one makes your skin look super fresh and smooth. The more amazing part is that it has a SPF50! I haven’t found that anywhere else, which makes this primer perfect for a protected makeup and skin in the summer!
