As many of us are now indefinitely working from home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, beauty routines have been adjusted and amended. With more of our hours spent indoors, you might think it’s practical to save the SPF for brighter days ahead—but sunscreen remains an essential part of every morning routine, even when working from home.

As a general rule of thumb, dermatologist Craig A. Kraffert, M.D., recommends keeping constant with the routine you followed while you were still going outdoors. “People are creatures of habit, so the best idea is to not change one’s daily sunscreen habits, despite the current limitations of movement.” He recommends an ultralight sunscreen with antioxidants and botanical extracts for morning application, namely the Amarte Ultra Veil, as it has a high level of SPF and “it absorbs completely into skin, producing no perceptible color shift or opacity.” The anti-aging ingredients don’t hurt either, making it a great daily go-to.
