Did you know that 90% of visible signs of aging are from sun damage? And up to 20% of the sun's harmful rays can penetrate your skin--even on a cloudy day! The truth is SPF is your BFF and should be worn year-round. 


So how much sunscreen should I be using on my face? Should I lightly tap it on like Gwyneth or goop it on? 


Here's the scoop on SPF... 

You should be using 1/2-1 teaspoon on your face, neck, and décolletage (a.k.a. "the French face") and 1 ounce of sunscreen when you're sporting a swimsuit or minimally dressed.


How do I work sunscreen into my skincare routine? 

Layer it! Improve your skin's natural defense in four simple steps:

1. Apply your cleanser, serum, and moisturizer 
2. Follow your moisturizer with our day eye cream 
3. Smooth on your facial SPF
4. Apply your makeup

    But how do I reapply sunscreen without messing up my makeup?
