More skin care stuff

Kelly, the author self-identified as dry and sensitive skin. She uses Terralina Gentle Cleanser (which I've never heard of but is very pricey) and Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, SPF 30. She also uses St. Ives Elements Protective Cleanser with SPF 10 in the shower in the hopes her hubby will use it and get even a little sun protection. She also likes Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist, SPF 45 for when she's outside for something like the beach, and she likes Nia 24 (never heard of it).

She also gives a long and detailed lecture about where to put sunscreen and to ALWAYS have on lip balm with sunscreen and sunglasses. She says lots of cancers start in our nails so put sunscreen on your hands and feet including the nails. She also strongly recommends yearly all-over skin checks with a dermatologist. I've wanted to do that for years because I am so high risk, but . . . money. And the weirdness of literally being checked everywhere on your body. But, it is a priority for this year.

Oh--she also really likes Coppertone Kids Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50 because it doesn't sting if you get it in your eyes.

Make sure you're wearing sunblock that blocks both kinds of rays.

Did I answer all your questions? I'm thinking of switching moisturizers because of the sunscreen element, but I hardly use any sunscreen--so I probably wouldn't get enough sunscreen. I've been using Neutrogena 50 every day under my make-up but even that makes my face feel greasy by the end of the day. Grr. Even after reading all her stuff I'm not sure what sunscreen to use.

Sorry for the randomness. Have a good day.
