When it comes to aging, somehow the process seems to have completely skipped over Gabrielle Union who could easily reprise her role as a high school cheerleader with ease. She attributes her age defiance to genetics courtesy of her mother, "It is oily skin, which is sort of like a blessing and a curse. I’ve started calling my oily skin embalming fluid. It is sort of preserving what is left of my youth," Gabrielle shared, "My mom also has oily skin. She just turned 67, and she only started getting wrinkles in the last couple of years. I have been lucky in that way that my oily skin has kept me sort of youthful looking."
Gabrielle also believes that drinking a gallon of water a day helps keep the wrinkles away. Looking at her skin, we have no room to disagree. As the face of Neutrogena, she learned more about the importance of wearing sunscreen- especially for skin of color, with all the recent research, we now know that everyone of all different skin types runs the risk of cancer without proper sun protection.”
Everyone should use a sunscreen everyday regardless of if you are the palest of the pale to the darkest of the dark. Skin types V-VI can get skin cancer from the sun like anyother skin type and, on a more superficial note, sunscreen can help reduce dark spots on the skin and help prevent moles from taking over your face and neck when we age. Why take the risk when it's just one step in your morning routine? There are many options that won't clog your pores or make your skin feel sticky.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is super light on the skin and provides protection against skin cancer causing rays as well as the UV rays that make skin uneven in color and texture (dark spots and moles).
