Neutrogena recently released survey results which show that 1 in 5 people will get skin cancer in their lifetime, yet only 1 in 5 people wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
That's really gambling on your skin, assuming that you won't be one of the 20% of people who won't get skin cancer!
Some more survey findings:
- 94% of Amerians know that prolonged exposure to the sun can cause skin damage and even skin cancer, yet only 1 in 5 people (20%) wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
- 33% of Americans don’t think it’s necessary to wear sunscreen every day.
- 1 in 2 dermatologists (51%) report that their patients only seek information on their skin when they think something is wrong.
- Nearly all dermatologists (93%) note that skin cancer most often develops on the face, more than any other place on the body. That is likely why 100% of dermatologists recommend their patients put sunscreen on their face daily or whenever they are going to be exposed to the sun.
So I tried out a sample of Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock, which has an SPF of a whopping 70 (!) to review for all of you.
You just put on a light layer beneath your regular makeup when you are getting ready to go out.
The Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock is virtually invisible. I didn't notice it under my makeup at all, and I wore it all day as I went out to run my errands, like grocery shopping, picking up the kids from school, and even out to dinner that evening. I found it very light and not at all greasy; my skin didn't feel oily or clogged.
As I said, I think skincare is really important, but I've always been a soap-and-water kind of girl; I don't go in for all the toners and clarifiers and expensive skin treatments. Like most of you, I'm on a budget!
But adding Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock to your daily routine, especially during the summertime when you are out in the sun more often, is so effortless, that I *definitely* think you owe it to your skin! And the good news is that, at just 11.99 for a 1.4 oz bottle (which will last you a while), it won't break your budget.
I received one bottle of Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock, with 70 SPF, to facilitate this review.
