Why Sunscreen Everyday?
I grew up in Northern California, where the beach is really too cold for swimming, even in the summer! So, when we moved to Arizona, “the valley of the sun”, applying sunscreen was a bit foreign to me and I didn’t do it as much as I should have. However, I did start applying sunscreen every day when we moved to Texas, when I was older and knew better! Then I began to notice a change in my skin and was hooked! The dark spots lightened and the texture was much smoother.
It’s a daily year-round must-do girls! At the minimum apply to your face, neck, chest, and hands everyday.
Either Lisa or I have used the below sunscreens and completely love each one! If you love the smell, texture and ease of putting it on, there is no better money spent on your skin, period. End of story.
If I’m going to spray something over my entire body, it’s going to be natural, have potent antioxidants and smell amazing! Soleil Du Midi does all of that. It contains zinc, has moisturizing oils, and has a can that sprays a continuous mist from any angle! Perfection!
Lisa’s kiddos have super sensitive skin when it comes to sunscreen! They have tried everything under the sun and love Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector. It’s an ultra lightweight spray lotion that is a SPF 50. Mom tested and approved!
Did you know, It is recommended to apply sunscreen under your make-up everyday so it adheres directly to the skin for the best protection? I love Eue Thermale Avéne’s sheer formula because it is super lightweight and absorbs quickly. It will also give you 8 hours of moisture and be water-resistant for 80 minutes.
If I’m not wearing foundation, I reach for Revision Skincare Intellishade. I cannot even count how many tubes I have been through! I put this on everyday, even if I’m not going out of the house. It is packed with anti aging ingredients and makes my skin look flawless! I use the Matte formula because I tend to have oily skin. Love it, don’t ever want to be without it!
It doesn’t make sense to protect your face and not your hands. Hands will show age with wrinkles and sun spots if you do not protect them. This La Mer SPF lotion is pricey I know, but I only use it on my hands, so a little goes a long way. It has their famous miracle broth in it and doesn’t just defend, it repairs the damage that is already there!
Another budget friendly option is Allure Best of Beauty award-winning Supergoop Forever Young Hand Cream.
I love this SPF lip balm! Lips lose collagen when exposed to the UV rays of the sun, so add this to your daily routine. This COOLA balm comes in 4 natural tints, contains zinc and glides on smooth. It will also moisturize your lips while protecting them.
This powerful serum from Leonor Greyl has silk proteins and vegetal oil that will weightlessly, smooth and protect your hair. It also protects from the sun’s UV rays and heat styling tools! It’s a game changer for my hair!
