I always say this, but I am still shocked at how nonchalant I was about sunscreen use when I was younger. I don’t blame myself; I blame the culture! My Gen Z sweeties, you don’t know how lucky you are that there is more education about the importance of sun protection these days. Now that I’m in my 40s with what I had assumed were cute freckles but is actually sun damage staring at me every time I look in the mirror, I can’t afford to be so cavalier. I’m serious about sun protection and make sure to apply it every single day, even when I don’t have plans to leave the house. (I do miss tanning my legs, though…)

My new sunscreen sidekick? The Outset’s Hydrasheer 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30. I was lucky enough to get a sample of this months before it launched, and I haven’t used anything else on my face since. This is a big deal for a lady who loves her sunscreen. During one of my past interviews with the founders of The Outset, Scarlett Johansson and Kate Foster, I got a bit of a spoiler and knew that sunscreen was something they were working on. In fact, it was something that was important and in the works for a long time.
