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 parentsâ€™ generation didnâ€™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 itâ€™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 Iâ€™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 Iâ€™m exposed to direct sunlight most of the day.
I was introduced to Supergoop!â€™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 :).
Iâ€™ve been using the translucent powder once Iâ€™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. Iâ€™m also really excited to use the medium in the summer when I donâ€™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 itâ€™s not something that you would use alone (always layer with other SPF!), Iâ€™ve been loving this for a finishing touch and touch up product throughout the day. Itâ€™s my new go-to and can also be paired with Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serumâ€“an absolute for all of my NYC/Chicago/major city gals!
Iâ€™d love to hear how you think about SPF protection and caring for your skin, too. Leave a comment below!
