Reader question: “What is a good sunblock that I can wear under makeup that isn’t too greasy or heavy?” — Brooke
The answer: Sunscreen is arguably the most important beauty product to keep in your arsenal (IMHO). And when it comes to sunscreen you apply under makeup, you need to find a lightweight cream or serum that absorbs quickly into your skin. Sounds easy, right? Try telling that to the 50 half-used bottles I’ve tested over the years. Though many claim to go on “sheer” or “invisible” few actually deliver. The one I recommend over and over again because it does work fabulously under makeup is Dr. T’s Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30+, $42. It goes on ultra-sheer and has awesome sun protection that’s perfect for every day. The clincher: It also combats premature aging with Uniprotect PT-3, an ingredient that promotes cell renewal — all while being super-moisturizing. It’s my go-to and is probably your best bet.
Now that you know sunscreen is my number one beauty product, tell me what yours is.
