I had to pass on this great find to any moms out there who ended up with melasma during or after pregnancy. I have always had a difficult time finding the right daily (non-toxic) moisturizer/sunblock combo. With melasma it’s so critical to be completely protected from the sun, but without the ghost-like appearance that most natural sunblocks cause. This one is by Josie Maran and it is a zinc and argan oil combo. It’s light and smells great.
Here’s the official description from Josie’s website:
Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40+ is your skins first defense against premature aging. This natural formula physically blocks UVA rays that can cause up to 80% of premature aging. It also blocks the harmful UVB rays we encounter on sunny days or at the beach. Unlike traditional sun blocks, this natural formula is infused with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil, which repairs and reverses damage caused by the sun, fights sign of aging and improves skin tone for a radiant, renewed complexion. This sun block is extra mild and fast absorbing. It can also double as a great makeup primer. Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40+ is lightweight, Paba Free, and for all skin types.
I’m buying the jumbo size next time and I also love the tinted version for easy everyday make-up that covers melasma.
