While many people associate sunscreen with Summer, to me it’s an essential 365 days a year. In fact, when asked in an interview once about the three things I couldn’t live without, I said sunscreen, my husband and red wine… Not necessarily in that order, but you get my drift. 🙂
When I was in my early twenties, I had a really scary incident with a basil cell carcinoma. It ended up being non malignant, but I can still remember the hard bump that grew next to the side of my nose and hearing the doctors knife cutting it out. Luckily the local anesthesia worked so well that I couldn’t feel a thing, but I will never forget that sound or the tugging and pulling of my skin while it was getting sewn back up. It was then that the importance of sunscreen became a daily habit, but choosing the right facial sunscreen was still tricky. I needed to find one with a high SPF, but also one that wouldn’t cause my sensitive skin to breakout.
The Jan Marini line was introduced to me by a skin care professional many years ago and it’s definitely become one of my favorite go to lines for skincare. While you will always find a handful of Jan Marini products on my cosmetics roster, the Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant is one that I never let run out. I love how the sunscreen doubles as a moisturizer and use it to hydrate my skin just before applying foundation.
Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant comes in SPF 33, SPF 45 and also a tinted version in two shades. Living in a sunny beach town, the importance of sunscreen has become as much a part of my daily routine as brushing my teeth and kissing my husband in the morning before he heads off to work. Add a hat, a cute pair of sunnies and a swipe of lipstick and I’m good to go.
