Skin Deep is deep enough!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Francesca @ 9:10 am

Now that you have the perfect bra, or plans to get one, it is time to think about skin.

Ladies, please wear sunscreen on your face, hands, and arms every day, rain or shine, winter and summer, to prevent wrinkles, spots, and cancer.

 For over a decade I have used Oil of Olay Complete All Day UV Defense Moisterizer every day, under my foundation and on my arms, hands, neck, collarbone, and sometimes my feet.

It is the only moisturizer I’ve tried that has sunscreen and doesn’t feel oily and doesn’t make me break out.  And I can report with a little bit of vanity that I consistently receive compliments on my clear, soft skin. Now, you, too, have the secret.

But of course you are free to use whatever sunscreen/moisturizer combination works for you. The important thing is to use it.

 Moisterizer. Sunscreen.  And remove your makeup before going to sleep!

Francesca hath spoken.


  1. After having tried more lotions than I care to admit, I finally caved in to the “Oil of Olay” pull. It always made me think of moms & grandmas, and I was surely MUCH too young to be using it.

    Of course, said moms and grandmas are the people from whom I inheirited my pale, sensitive, freckly skin. I should have known better – it works, and as you said, it doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I’m converted!

  2. I like that Olay lotion a lot too. I agree with Neller–I’d always thought of it as an “old lady” brand. (I’m in college.) But clean & clear wasn’t working for me, so I found a coupon and tried something new. My skin is clearer and smoother and it doesn’t make me shiny. Good stuff!

  3. i’m running out at lunchtime to buy some of this. i’m a long sleeve, hat wearing, fair skinned woman who has never been able to use sunblock because of my super sensitive skin (it’s also very limiting in purchasing base makeup, all of which now seem to have SP15 in them). it’s worth a shot at an “old lady” brand. so i don’t end up looking like an old lady.
