10 Vegan + Cruelty-free Sunscreens you can wear under your makeup!

Happy Summer Solstice to everyone! After a long break, I have finally found some time to sit down and write. 

Since summer is officially here, I decided to discuss (once again!) the importance of finding the right sunscreen. There are sunscreens for everything, but these sunscreens are special, for these protectors are designed to not only shield the skin from UVA & UVB rays but also, prep the skin for makeup application. This means filling in those fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing pores, and moisturizing dry areas–without the white film. 

Happy shopping for I found sunscreens for all budgets~

Skincare for EVERY Age: A Vegan and Cruelty-free Guide to your changing Routine

Some people are born lucky. These people can use the same skincare products from their teenage years all the way until their 70’s and beyond. My mom is one of these lucky people. She has been using the same Clinique products as long as I can remember and still looks amazing.

However, while this works for her, the products I use my teenage years don’t and can’t match my skin now in my 20s. I once had oily, acne-prone skin, now I am leaning more towards combination with occasional breakouts. My once favorite skincare products are just too harsh. But thankfully, with the rise of women and men creating and purchasing skincare products, there are items out there to address all kinds of skin concerns.

Below are just some of the various skincare products available for all ages!   

*= VEGAN-FRIENDLY

Skincare Routine 20s (1)

While in your 20s, your hormones should be calming down from your awkward puberty days. However, now what is left are dark spots and an oily, persist T-zone. To help combat these problems look for products that are meant to ease the occasional breakouts and fade those dark spots. 

Skincare Routine 30s (1)

They say, “30s is the new 20s.” But with that said, your skin maybe telling a different story. Dryness will start creeping up on you. Stop dryness by finding hydrating moisturizers and soothing scrubs to buff away dead, dull skin. 

Skincar Routine 40s (2)

Aging is a blessing. But there is no shame in keeping wrinkles and age spots away. In your 40s, your skin is losing collagen, a protein that keeps your skin’s elasticity tight. While this is just part of nature, a healthy diet and a strong skincare routine may slow the process.

Skincare 50s+ (1)

When it comes to aging, it is but a number. Starting a good routine in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, will greatly help your skin when you are in your 50s and beyond. The main concern now is just keeping your skin smooth and fading away wrinkles. Look for products designed for mature skintypes or have BHA/AHA ingredients to regenerate your skin.
