Skincare is a common denominator in all beauty-related conversations that I have with my closest friends, and even co-workers. With so many products available these days great skincare is more accessible than ever. Our parents’ generation didn’t have the kind of sunscreen and protection that we do today. As someone who spent their entire life in the sun playing sports I know that it’s on me to do everything I can to protect my skin for years to come.
Most days I wear some kind of light foundation for a little coverage (because my Asian skin is very see-through), but also mostly for some SPF coverage. In the winter especially, I need something that I can re-apply throughout the day to ensure I’m being covered. I sit right next to a giant window and while I absolutely love the natural light and honestly think it helps me work better, it also means I’m exposed to direct sunlight most of the day.
I was introduced to Supergoop!’s 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder as an alternative to applying sunscreen during the day on top of your makeup. It has SPF 45 in it serving as a protective layer over my makeup for the day while also acting as a setting powder. Any product that does double duty is ok by me :).
I’ve been using the translucent powder once I’m done doing my makeup in the morning and then take it with me so that I can re-apply for the sun protection throughout the day. I’m also really excited to use the medium in the summer when I don’t need as much coverage and have more of a tan. It comes in 4 shades, is 100% mineral based, and the tube is small and can fit in any purse or clutch for touch ups.
While it’s not something that you would use alone (always layer with other SPF!), I’ve been loving this for a finishing touch and touch up product throughout the day. It’s my new go-to and can also be paired with Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum–an absolute for all of my NYC/Chicago/major city gals!
I’d love to hear how you think about SPF protection and caring for your skin, too. Leave a comment below!
