Goodness, I’m so proud of us! We’ve cleansed, we’ve exfoliated, we’ve moisturised; we’ve figured out what the hell serums are for and why eye cream is a real thing.
Now for the top layer! When your skin is in great shape because you’re taking proper care of it, the top layer is basically just about protecting it from the sun, and adding a teeny bit of “help” in the makeup department if you’re so inclined.
First up, sunscreen. As I’ve said before, there is no point putting effort into a skincare routine if you’re not going to protect your skin from the sun. Sun damage will age your skin faster than anything else, and all of the creams and potions in the world can’t fix that. You must wear sunscreen on your face, no matter what the weather, and no matter how long you’re actually going to be spending outside. Even ducking out of the office for a sandwich can expose you to sun damage if you’re not wearing sunscreen. Listen to Aunty LML and just do it, okay?
