Protect Thyself with SPF daily

You know the drill- the best defense against aging is to wear SPF religiously…. and exercise, and eat good-clean-organic food, drink loads of water and maybe even some red wine…

So back to the SPF part:  Now that the weather is warmer who doesn’t want to be outside more?  Here’s a list of my favorite Moisturizers with SPF (since i’m lazy and usually like the dual product):

  • Murad’s Perfecting Day Cream Broad Spectrum with SPF 30| PA+++ – This tube regularly finds itself in my shopping basket because of it’s fabulous moisturizing properties, high SPF technology, and the fact that it absorbs quickly.  Great for daily use year round here in San Francisco!
  • Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 20 – born out of San Francisco, this algae based cream combines Viatmin C plus Alguronic Acid (think hyaluronic acid but derived from algae) to protect your skin while restoring it at the same time.  It’s a spendier option, but worth the splurge if you can do it.
  • Anthelios 60 Melt-in Sunscreen Milk from La Roche-Posay – i am SO happy that La Roche-Posay was made available in the states a few years ago.  This sunscreen is dual purpose: cool to use on your face and body.  It is the sole sunscreen I’ve found that doesn’t feel like pasty goop (which my guy LOVES – not) and it’s all I used on a recent trip to Ixtapa, Mexico.  No breakouts or clogged pores from that trip!  I use it outside of vacation time too; it works great as a daily moisturizer.

These are some of my favorite moisturizers with SPF- what are yours?
