Pick a moisturizer with sunscreen for everyday use
Sun, heat, and the chemicals in pools can leave your skin feeling parched, and dull. To save your summer glow, choose a product that does double duty as both a moisturizer and sunscreen. Dr. Julia Carroll, director of Compass Dermatology in Toronto, says moisturizers that contain sunscreen can be an elegant way to hydrate and protect your skin year round. “One of my new favourites is CeraVe AM. It’s a moisturizer with SPF 30. It also contains ceramides, which help repair the skin barrier, and niacinamide, which reduces skin inflammation,” she says. If you’re going to be playing sports, or spending a full day soaking up the rays, Carroll recommends a traditional sunscreen for its protective qualities.
