Anyone else use sunscreen as moisturizer??


My moisturizer is a sunscreen.

I use Neutrogena's Healthy Defense Moisturizer with a light tint. It has an SPF of 50. I use it during the daytime as a combination moisturizer/make up. It's the only thing I put on my face in the morning.


When I go out for a run I only use sunscreen. When I wear makeup I put on sunscreen underneath and let it soak in before I put on make up. I have had terrible burns so I don't go without sunscreen ever (extremely light skinned, think Snow White.) If I'm just inside or overnight, I put on a little vit. e oil around the eye and some coconut oil on my body if I feel dry. We have really dry air here.


I've read that any SPF over 25 or 30 makes so little difference in protection, and requires so much more chemicals, that it's not worth using.


I use Aveeno facial daily moisturizer with SPF 15. I have used it for years, and live in the deep south where sunscreen is a definite requirement. I have never burned with this product, and it is not oily at all. I love it.
