The best anti-aging product is the simplest: Sunscreen

By: Canadian Living

The best anti-aging product isn't a pricey lotion containing meteorite dust or snail secretions (yes, those are actual skin-care ingredients); it's a potion that's found in every drug-, grocery and convenience store: sunscreen. By now, you'd think that applying sunscreen year-round would be a no-brainer, but in a recent Neutrogena consumer study, 80 percent of Canadians said they still weren't using sunscreen during the winter. "It doesn't matter if it's a cloudy day or wintertime," says Menas Kizoulis, global scientific engagement leader for skin-care research and development at Johnson & Johnson. The UVA rays are still coming through. Kizoulis says it's important to encourage people to use sunscreen daily and to apply enough of the product for it to be effective. Enter Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Face & Body Sunscreen Stick. This genius sunscreen is oil-free and water-resistant, and it comes in a large (deodorant-size) stick that, when applied to the skin, leaves a matte finish. Swipe it on, then toss it into your bag for easy reapplication. 2016-NEUTROGENA-ULTRA-SHEER-Face-and-Body-Sun-Stick-SPF-50 Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+, $18, shoppersdrugmart.ca Read more: How to cover dark under eye circles Nail polish picks for winter The right shade of blush for your skin tone This article originally appeared in the March 2016 issue of Canadian Living Magazine.
