Reading Time: 11 minutes Each season, my skincare routine seems to shift a bit. In the winter, I use heavier and more moisturizing products. In the spring I choose products that sit a bit lighter on the skin for day time, and heavier for night time. And, in the summer I go for skincare that focuses a bit more on suncare and oil control. LD Beauty Suncare and Bronzing products. If you already read that post then you know I am BIG on protecting my skin from the sun. While I like the whole bronzy glowy look, I would much rather achieve it through makeup rather than spending hours out in the sun damaging my skin. I don’t know if I have mentioned this really before, but another reason suncare is so important to me is because multiple people in my family have battled skin cancer and so it’s always been at the forefront of my mind. My grandpa had it on his ears (and I believe he also had it on the top of his head), and recently my dad had some cancerous spots on his nose. Frankly, seeing what my dad has it has scared me even more into being careful with my skin. So, if I have to be a bit more careful now to avoid (hopefully) dealing with that later – I’ll do it. I have also mentioned a few times here on the UU that this year I’ve begun using acids in my skincare routine. About 3 times a week, I’ll use one of my favourite acid products (Typically, I’ll go for either the Farmacy Beauty Honeymoon Glow, The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid, or The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5%). If you know anything about acids, then you know that they make your skin even more sensitive to the sun so you really need to ensure you use suncare if you’re going to treat your skin with acids.
