Once I left the humid shores of the Potomac River for the drier air out West, my hair breathed a sigh of relief and regained the Texas-pageant hair volume of my youth. My skin was another matter.
Without the pungent humidity of the South, my pores, wrinkles and acne scars become bigger, deeper and more noticeable. Why? Because dry air does imperfect skin no.freaking.favors.
My new dermatologist suggested three things: 1) regular facials, 2) Argan oil and 3) sunscreen, lots of sunscreen. Supergoop! Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil lets me kill two birds with one bottle.
This lightweight formula gives you all the benefits of Argan oil–hydration, anti-oxidants–and SPF 50. And best of all, it doesn’t clog my acne prone skin as long as I am careful to apply it with clean hands. You also want to let it soak in a bit before applying other makeup, otherwise you can end up with foundation that looks like it was made by Exxon.
Also, since it only takes a little bit to do the trick, the bottle lasts forever making it a budget-friendly buy.
This product sells out quickly and is becoming harder to find. However, one of the benefits of living in middle-America again is that the newest, hottest products are always available in store because word of their arrival hasn’t made it to town yet. If Sephora sells out before this posts (which it very likely will), I also found it on Amazon and on the company’s website. Otherwise, sign up to be notified when it’s back in-stock.
