When it comes to skincare, we trust those whose entire career depends upon having flawless skin. We are referring to celebrities here, and Drew Barrymore is one of the very few celebrities who have always managed to exhibit flawless skin over the years.
She also seems to have defied the aging process, which is all the more reason for us to discover her skincare secrets and adopt them into our lifestyle.
Thankfully, Barrymore believes in the power of sharing and has not kept her skincare routine under wraps. The actress is transparent about the products she routinely uses, as she loves to review them on her Instagram page.
She also shares the many struggles she has had to deal with overtime when it comes to skincare, providing perspective to her fans that even her seemingly flawless skin has its ups and downs while also delivering useful advice on how such issues can be dealt with in the best possible manner.
Using A Sunscreen
If you had not already guessed that sunscreen would definitely be a part of Barrymore’s lifestyle, then you obviously don’t know much about skincare. But that’s fine because it’s never too late to start using sunscreen.
Barrymore shared that her preference is for a sunscreen product that is mineral-based and one that also offers a broad-spectrum coverage, which basically means that it provides protection from UVA as well as UVB rays.
According to the posts, the actress has made on social media, she apparently likes to use one with an SPF of 40.
However, in recent times, she has also felt leaning more towards the SPF 50+ formula. It is important to note that Barrymore is not using any expensive sunscreen products at all. While you can get an SPF 40 one on Amazon for around $12, an SPF 50 one should be available for around $22.
Fear Of Breaking Out?
While some sunscreen products have the tendency to make the wearer’s skin break out in places, the product types mentioned above don’t have that issue, at least not for Barrymore.
You would probably need to test multiple products before you can find one that suits your skin well. However, Barrymore recommends wearing sunscreen every day, as she has done over the years.
And it seems like Barrymore is telling us the truth, judging by the lack of wrinkles on her face. Even scientific research has concluded that wearing sunscreen every day is a very effective way of slowing down the aging process.
According to reports, sunscreen also prevents uneven texture on the skin, and also reduced the onset of fine lines which come from aging. Avoidance of hyperpigmentation is also a benefit of using sunscreen.
If you are unsure about a particular sunscreen product, then it is highly advisable that you visit a retailer that offers free testers. Test the product out for a couple of days before investing in an entire product because not all sunscreen products would suit your skin type as they can cause acne or freckling.
