Before you do anything else, the most important thing you can do to combat aging skin is wear sunsblock of SPF 30 or higher. Do you think that if you're just driving to work and will go from your car to an office you don't need the SPF? Did you know that UVA rays are NOT blocked by glass? UVB rays are what give you a sunburn, and they ARE successfully blocked by windows. But UVA rays are NOT. They come right in through the window. They do not cause burns, but are huge contributors to wrinkles, sun damage and skin cancer.
EltaMD is our favorite brand of sunblock. It is the highest quality medical grade sunblock available, and it feels great on your skin. EltaMD uses a special micronized zinc that goes on clear instead of white, so you don't look like a ghost. They make many different versions that al have a different look and finish-- you will be able to find one that you love the way it feels on your skin. The idea is to find one you love wearing, so you don't mind putting it on every day, even on a grey day.
