My name is Amy and up until a year ago, I’d never worn face sunscreen.
Before you call the First World Problems police, I should clarify I have slipped, slopped and slapped sunscreen on my face on occasions at the beach or on a walk.
But I’d never done what every beauty editor or dermatologist in the history of the universe says you simply must do every single day…
I’d never worn a facial sunscreen under my makeup, and never managed to include it in my daily skincare routine.
There’s a few reasons why a facial sunscreen couldn’t get the call up from my ‘occasional’ products drawer to my everyday beauty bag.
Laziness. Inconvenience (adding another step into my jam-packed morning routine). Worrying about if sunscreen would give me pimples and clog my pores.
But most of all, not wanting to dribble down into a greasy puddle of products by lunch time.
Thankfully, us journos get to try new products so we can tell you about the best ones. I also have a responsibility to walk the talk because skipping facial sunscreen is really just not good enough, especially in our harsh Australian sun all year round.
