This Memorial Day, please oh please wear sunblock! No matter how tempting a “sun glow” is.
General rule for sunblock, use about a teaspoon for your face and a shot glass for your body. Be sure to apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before exposure to allow it to properly sink in and reapply about every two hours. I know, that seems like a lot of applications, but your 50 year old self will thank you! Protect yourself from future wrinkles, and more importantly, prevent skin cancer!
There is nothing I hate worse then a goopy white smelly sunscreen. Who wants to be a splotchy mess when you are trying to flaunt your new bikini? However, sunscreen is a must! Find options that work best for you!
Here is a list of some of my favorite sunscreens that protect my face, body, hair, and lips from the sun. No matter if you use a spray, lotion, or stick, they all do the job.
Sunscreens that allows perspiration to evaporate without losing its protection is great, because, I sweat in summer’s heat! This sunscreen is light and allows your skin to breathe. Great for you athletic sun goddesses! I’ll cheers to you from my lounge chair, margarita in hand.
Still unfortunately pasty and in a bathing suit? Try this bronzing sunscreen. It creates a sun-kissed glow quickly!
Protect your lips to keep them kissable with this lip tint that has SPF in it.
Don’t want to mess up your makeup? Use Supergoop! Spray on face to reset makeup and protect skin. Or, you can use a powder or “foundation” with SPF as your face makeup. You can use this tinted sunscreen that works as a foundation!
Now don’t forget about your gorgeous hair! Be sure to protect it from dryness and use a hair mist. I like this hair mist. It protects from color fade, dehydration and additionally adds shine and prevents frizz. Score!
Equally important, protect your eyes and wear sunglasses!
