I have a new sun protection routine for my skin that I’m loving from my fabulous dermatologist, Dr. Rashmi Shetty!  I’m about to re-order these products so thought I would share.

First, she has me using Vitamin C serum as the first layer in the morning.  It’s called E’clat Superior and it “stimulates collagen production and assists in improvement of radiance, elasticity and skin texture, while helping to reduce pigmentation, refine pores and provide ongoing protection against future sun damage.”  I especially love this stuff because it doesn’t feel too harsh or drying.  I had to get it from this funny site healthyshopey.com and do cash on delivery, so I wasn’t sure it would show up, but it did!

Second, I’m using an SPF 50 sunscreen gel called Truderma. This feels fluffy and soft on my skin and I wear it every morning. When I first met Dr. Shetty she didn’t like how sticky my skin was feeling with my old products.  I can’t find a good place to order this online so I pick up from her office.

I also wear long sleeves often and a nice big sun hat!  I hope that’s helpful for those of you wanting to protect your skin in our lovely tropical climate!
