The more we learn about the sun and what it does to our skin, the more important it is to protect yourself when you go outside for long periods of time. Whether the sun is shining bright in the sky or behind a cloud, your skin is still getting hit with a douse of ultraviolet rays. Those UV rays can wreak havoc on your skin and lead to skin cancer. Even if you put on face sunscreen before stepping out of the house or douse yourself with UPF 50+ while you’re at the beach, you might want to take the extra step and get a reliable hat. Sun damage isn’t...

There's a fine line between a dewy just-left-hot-yoga glow and seeing your own reflection in the middle of your forehead. For people with oily skin, the latter situation is a reality — which can make smoothing on moisturizer in the morning feel like fanning a flame. But, according to the pros, oily skin types need moisturizer too. And skipping this vital skincare step? Well, it can end up doing more harm than good. "Those with oily skin may think they want to skip a moisturizer, but this may actually cause your body's own oil glands to become more active," says dermatologist Annie Chiu, MD. Instead of eschewing moisturizer, which can actually make your skin oilier, as a result, it's all about using the right formula that will leave skin balanced and healthy (not greasy or congested). Ahead, we rounded up our favorite oily-skin-friendly hydrating heroes — all of which more than lives up to the grease-fighting challenge. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.

With countries around the world operating under shelter-at-home orders, a few not-so-surprising trends have emerged, particularly for those of us who are fortunate enough to spend extra time at home: collective Netflix binging, virtual hangouts, and the return of sock curls. But what we couldn't have anticipated was a surge in people learning to embrace not only their natural hair, but their bare skin, too. Over the past several weeks, women have taken to social media to share stories of how they're building a more positive relationship with their skin at home or as essential workers, blemishes and all. Some are finding the courage to go on video calls for work with zero concealer; others are realizing that, amid all the bigger problems in this world right now, acne is just, well, acne. In light of these conversations, we spoke to five women — from Texas to the United Kingdom — about how their attitude toward their skin has evolved since COVID-19 changed the way we all experience the world.Like what you see?

A long evening walk on the beach isn't exactly calming if you're shivering the entire time.

These pants and joggers are made with lightweight, sweat-wicking, and even UV-protecting materials, so you can stay comfortable walking, running, jumping, and dancing on the sand without feeling overheated - because that's not fun, either.

In the beginning of quarantine, my doctor friend told me she was absolutely obsessed with her PhoneSoap ($80), a device built to fit a smartphone that uses UV-C light to kill harmful pathogens, like, say, coronavirus. Selling for $169 on Amazon, the Coral UV has a heftier price tag than the original PhoneSoap, but considering its larger size, it’s actually more comparable to the HomeSoap, PhoneSoap’s newer, bigger product that goes for $200, but is only available to pre-order. In that sense, the Coral UV is a deal.

Niacinamide - also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide - certainly isn't a new or unheard-of skin-care ingredient, though it's recently started getting a ton of buzz in the beauty industry. Much like retinol, it's somewhat of a do-it-all ingredient, and it can help resolve or improve a number of skin issues. According to dermatologist Shari Sperling, DO, niacinamide can help with inflammation, decrease redness in skin, moisturize and hydrate the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and decrease oil production. Additionally, it's suitable for every skin type and can even be combined with other ingredients, like hyaluronic acid. From moisturizers to serums, there's a good chance you've seen niacinamide lurking in some of your products as of late, but if you haven't yet added it to your routine, read ahead to check out a few trusty skin-care products you can find it in.
