moisturize your face.
They seal in moisture.

La Mer CremeCrème de la Mer's Miracle Broth™ is manufactured by the same slow, meticulous bio-fermentation process originally created by Dr. Max Huber. And because kelp has natural antimicrobial properties, only the tiniest amounts of preservatives are necessary to maintain its long shelf life. This extraordinary crème must be individually hand-filled in order to sustain its delicate balance. Beware of cheap prices at Amazon - knock-offs!

Beauty Bloomer's Daytime Recommendations
To recommend anything that is not a sunblock would be like telling you, “Hey, it’s okay to let the sun prematurely age and damage your face and turn you into an old crone before your time”.
Winter, summer, rain or shine – use sunblock! The most important thing is to make sure your sunscreen is truly protecting your skin. It needs to block the UVA (think A for aging) rays which are worse than the UVB rays.
