ThisThatBeauty Skin Chronicles: SPF

I confess. My skin care regime is pretty intense. My daily routine has no less than 11 steps (about 6 steps in the morn and 5 steps in the evening) and borders on being a religion. Someday I will find the time to do a complete run down of my full skincare regime.

While each step of my regime is very important, I understand that the average person will not invest as much time and energy. If I had to strip my regime down to just two items, it would an anti-acne product and a moisturizing product that contains SPF 15 or SPF30.

I always tell my friends (and anyone who’ll listen) if you do nothing else for your skin, protect it from the harmful anti aging effects of the sun. Erno Laszlo Total Face and Body Protection SPF30 is a protective lightweight cream that hydrates and provides powerful broad spectrum sun protection for the face and body. It is formulated with soothing botanicals, sea water, and powerful antioxidants that calm, hydrate, and help protect the skin against photo-aging.

While the product states that it is for “Face and Body”, I use it exclusively for face. Sometimes with “Face and Body” SPF products I find that the formula is more suitable for body. Erno Laszlo Total Face and Body SPF 30 is extremely light and creamy. It blends into my skin beautifully without streaking or leaving weird gray or purplish residue, like lots of other SPF 30 products I’ve tried.

Erno Laszlo Total Face and Body SPF 30 incorporates shea butter to help promote cell regeneration, Vitamin E to help defend skin against free-radicals and prevent premature aging, and Green Tea Extract to protect skin against sun damage.

Erno Laszlo Total Face and Body retails for $42 (7.oz). In my opinion, this is a steal for a high end product that is packed with antioxidants, botanicals, and minerals. Most drugstore brands (i.e.Aveeno Positively Ageless SPF 30) cost about $20 for a 2.5 oz container.
