I don’t know how it’s October already, but this spread by Inez & Vinoodh is striking all the chords with me today: cozy knits, spooky PLUS goofy, and the most elegant oxfords. Who says playing dress-up has to wait until Halloween? I certainly won’t.
It’s been a very long time since I’ve done one of these, but with summer (very) slowly on the way out, it seems like the right time for a reminder that sunscreen should be worn year-round. Especially on your face. Even on cloudy days, when you’re indoors, wearing a hat. Seriously. These are two that P and I wear not-quite-religiously-enough but basically every day.
The Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream (SPF 30) from Kiehl’s is something that I “borrowed” off my mother’s vanity well over a year ago (when it had a slightly different formulation), and my skin looks even younger now, if you can believe it. If you can’t, well, it certainly is more hydrated and smooth, which I think amounts to the same thing. I find that a little goes a long way, and if I let it absorb it makes a great base for my makeup. Of which I now use less, incidentally.
For the guys, I’ll make this brief: this Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer (SPF 20) is vegan, lightweight, quick-absorbing, inoffensive-smelling and a massive value at $48 for 8.5 fluid ounces. Yes, I really did spell that out. It doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t smell like sunscreen, doesn’t take more than twenty seconds to slap liberally on your face after you step out of the shower (or roll out of bed–no judgment). And you can confidently offer a pump or two to any and all overnight guests who are about to head off into the sunshine, with a caring reminder that they should always wear sunscreen. Just like you do.
