Video QuickTip #52 - April 27, 2010

Finally….spring is here!

With the onset of warm, sunny weather, it’s time to start thinking more about sun protection.

Brett shares his favorite sunblock and tips for using it.

Brett loves Clinique City Block – which comes in sheer (great for under makeup) or bronze shimmer (great for laying out on the beach!) and SPF 25 or 40.

Why is it so great?

City Block is a sunBLOCK, not a sunSCREEN, meaning it physically blocks the sun’s rays with Zinc Oxide instead of filtering them through. Brett compares it to the sunlight blocking power of a blackout curtain on a window versus a light shade. Zinc Oxide is an important ingredient that any fair gals (especially those that freckle) should look for in a sunblock.

Clinique City Block is also oil-free, so it’s perfect for those with oily or acne-prone skin. The sheer and weightless formula is easy to layer under makeup or wear alone, so there’s no excuse to not wear it everyday!

Even when sunbathing poolside or at the beach, Brett recommends keeping sunblock in your arsenal. You may use sunSCREEN (SPF 15 or higher) on most of your body, but dab sunBLOCK on all the “hot spots” – top of the nose, top of ears, collar bone, and breast bone – the skin is thin in those areas and tends to grab the sun more quickly than the rest of the body.

So if you’re looking for a great, all-around sunblock, check out City Block at your local Clinique counter!
