I'm skincare obsessed but I have a confession to make. Kind of like drinking more water, using body lotion regularly and resisting the urge to over pluck my eyebrows, wearing SPF is something I know I should be doing year round and not just when the sun decides to make a rare appearance but it's something I often neglect to do, relying on the SPF in my makeup.
