i'm 22 years old
what sun cream should i use?
good for my age?
for my skin?
how to choose a good product that good for ourself?
ps:my skin type : dry
Just a quick note, but regardless of whether it's a sunscreen or sunblock, it has to be reapplied every two hours or right after swimming. Sunscreen sinks into your skin and is a chemical block, while sunblock is a physical barrier that sits on top of your skin. Both usually need to be applied at least 15-30 minutes before sun exposure.
For my dry skin however, I usually use Clinique SPF 50 face sunblock and Neutrogena Dry Sheer SPF 60+ with Helioplex sunblock for the rest of my body, which works really well (can you tell I'm really really fair-skinned?)
I think a really good sunscreen for you would be Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 which an entirely natural, mineral-based sunscreen that provides a high level of protection from both pollution and UV radiation.
This is a lightweight day cream that contains mineral sunscreens, which provide broad protection from both UVA and UVB radiation. The all-natural ingredients contain no chemical sunscreens and are great for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin. This product also protects your skin from free radicals, urban pollution and electromagnetic waves. You can find it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P21
I hope this helps you.
I'm the same age as you and I use Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 15. I'm not sure what your skin type is, but usually when I use acne products, my skin gets dry and when I use this cream it absorbs really well into my skin. On days I don't use acne products, my skin gets a bit oily, but I use blotting tissues and my problem goes away. Even though this cream says "oil-free," it's definitely suitable for dry skin and combination skin. And if you wear make-up, the base adheres to your moisturized skin really well, too. Plus, this cream absorbs well without leaving your face with a white cast like some sunscreens. You should try brands from drugstores/Target/Walmart first before Sephora because any of the products could work for you without you having to spend a lot of money. Good luck!
I forgot to mention that this cream contains retinol and I know some people are sensitive to retinol if they've never used it before.

I would consider the NARS Pro-Prime Primer with spf 30. It will mattify the skin and can be worn alone for a natural look or as a great base for make-up. Not greasy and gives you more options than and spf in your foundation powder or liquid). Also some anti-aging benefits in there that will help your skin early-on.
This also is a good idea to keep the sunscreen out of your moisturizer so that you can have a basic skin cream for morning and night moisturizer without wearing sunscreen 24-7; alternatively 2 moisturizers; which is a fine option too.
ps wth this recommendation and for your dry skin, moisturizer goes on before your primer in the morning
I'm 22 years old too and my favorites are Mychelle Sun Shield and Lavanila Baby Block. These are both completely natural, non toxic physical blockers--which means that they stay put all day (unless you go swimming) and dont have to be reapplied every 2 hours like chemical sunscreens. The Mychelle is excellent for dry skin because it completely absorbs, leaves no white residue behind and is super moisturizing so you dont have to use a day cream ( I recommend that you never dilute sunscreen with moisturizers anyway) and it never makes me break out. I wear that one daily but when the sun starts really blazing I switch to the Lavanila Baby Block because it has a much higher SPF. It is very light you dont feel like you're wearing sunscreen at all and it is very very effective and leaves skin super protected and break out free.
