Sunscreen should be a key part of our daily beauty routines, but I’ll be the first to admit that I often skip this crucial step. While I’m aware that frolicking about sans sunscreen is dangerous (even if I’m just headed to the office), the idea of adding a sunscreen to my already elaborate beauty routine seems daunting. I also live in perpetual fear of breakouts and thinking about layering a thick, greasy formula on my face is enough to have me running to my dermatologist (miss you, Dr. Schweiger!).
The answer to my conundrum: Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum. This lightweight formula is a sunscreen and moisturizer in one, making it easy for me to add SPF to my morning regimen.
Light and fast-absorbing, the mattifying formula is great for layering under foundation. The SPF 30 skin-protector not only absorbs UVA and UVB rays, but it’s also paraben- and fragrance-free—Dr. Schweiger would definitely approve.
Every morning, after washing my face, I apply a thin layer of the serum. Thanks to the hydrating formula, I skip applying moisturizer. Hurray for removing an additional step out of my routine! I follow normal makeup application and I’m out the door.
