I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #Aveeno
True Beauty Blogger Confession: I have never been a fan of sunscreen. I know, go ahead and yell at me. I deserve it. I know it helps to prevent wrinkles, skin discoloration and worse. But for years, I just didn’t like it; the scent, the haze it left on my skin, the way it felt. And for years, I got away with it. Chalk it up to good genes, or maybe youth. But I skated by without it for many years. Until, I couldn’t.
I’ll never forgot the moment I realized my luck had run out. A facialist asked me what number sunscreen I wore, to which I mumbled “Well, I don’t really like sunscreen…I just (insert whatever lame excuse I conjured up at that moment.)” To which she replied “Your skin would be in much better shape if you did.”
But, she was right. My skin had started to look weathered, for lack of a better word. Blotchy, some brown spots, kind of dull. Like a front door that hadn’t been weatherproofed and had been out in the sun too long. I knew I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I needed to weatherproof my skin.
So began the journey of finding a daily moisturizer with SPF that I would wear. What a joy that I recently discovered a drugstore selection that I wasn’t just wearing begrudgingly, but that I actually liked! Enter Aveeno® Positively Radiant® Daily Moisturizer SPF 15.
With this, I’m not only protecting my skin, but I’m treating the factors that all these years without sunscreen have left me with (with a formula that’s oil free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic to boot!)
This drugstore must-have helps to improve:
– Brown Spots
(You know, all those features of “weathered” skin.)
The star ingredient? Something I enjoy with every meal of sushi with: soy! Specifically ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex. AVEENO® scientists developed a way to process soybeans and its proteins for maximum skin benefits so that dull, uneven skin becomes brighter, more radiant skin in just 4 weeks! While you’re waiting, natural light diffusers are included for an instant brightening effect too.
I can’t use ANY excuse I previously had for avoiding sunscreen. The scent? Very light; practically non-existant. It leaves no film or haze on my skin. Instead, those natural diffusers makes my skin look better. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all, as it soaks in instantly.
In other words, it’s happily earned a spot on my vanity. And I am no longer an SPF-phobe!
