Spring is here… which means the Calgary weather is a game of Russian roulette. But if there’s one thing Calgarians can count on is that it’s going to be sunny – because it’s almost always sunny.

So what do we do? We throw caution to the winds and leave our sweaters at home – but only after diligently applying some SPF, of course!

If you like to keep things simple (and effective) a daily moisturizer with SPF is your best bet. No extra steps required!

Our personal favourite is CeraVe’s AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF30, and here’s why.

It’s a Two in One

No one likes thick, heavy, cakey sunscreen. We love products that work double duty. The CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion doubles as a moisturizer and a sun protection, making it the ideal morning skincare multi-tasker. 

It’s Professional

All CeraVe products have been professionally developed with Dermatologists. That’s why everything in their skincare line contains three essential ceramides enhanced with a revolutionary delivery system (MVE) to help restore the skin’s natural protective barrier. The result? Reduced irritation and redness for nourished, calm, and happy skin.

It’s Everywhere

You can purchase CeraVe products pretty much anywhere, from pharmacies to your local grocery store, all at a reasonable price point. That means you don’t need to make an extra trip just to pick up your skincare. Easy peasy.

As if that wasn’t enough, you can actually meet the CeraVe team and get some expert advice at the CeraVe House Event coming to Calgary!
