Summer Skin Care Basics

Did you know that the sun doesn’t just burn your skin?

It is also the #1 cause of skin aging!! 

Here are a few tips for protecting yourself every time you head outside this summer…

WHY: UVA and UVB rays can cause premature skin aging, and they can lead to skin cancer.
WHEN:  Apply sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply at least every two hours or after swimming, sweating or towel-drying.
WEAR:  Apply a sunscreen with an SPF15 or higher daily – not just in the summer months!  You can also protect your skin by wearing tightly woven dark clothing and hats!

Check out the list below to find out HOW I like to protect myself and my family against all those harmful rays.  These are my personal favorite SPF products that I like to switch over and use in the summer months.

Sun Care Lip Protector with Broad Spectrum SPF15 - $10

I always tell my kiddos when they go out in the sun…  “Don’t forget to cover your feet, ears, and lips!”  Those areas are no fun for a sunburn. 

Protect your lips from the drying effects of sun + wind.  You can use this on bare lips or for an added layer of spf protection under your lipstick or lip gloss.

Did you know that even on those days when you are not going to be poolside, it is recommended that you protect your skin with at least an SPF15?  Trust me when I say that this little gem right here is the PERFECT way to protect your skin, and provide a flawless look for your foundation.  It also helps diminish the appearance of pores, fine lines, + wrinkles.

This is one of the MUST HAVES in my makeup bag all YEAR LONG!! 


And just in case you keep your toes in the sand a tad bit too long…
