Do as I say, not as I do and protect your skin this summer!

Do as I say, not as I do and protect your skin this summer!

We've all made the (brutal) mistake of not re-applying or even putting on sunscreen in the first place - guilty as charged. Not only is sun damage linked to the majority of skin cancers, but it leads to pre-mature aging and eye damage. Sun damage can occur literally within minutes of being out in the sun with no protection and can continue for hours afterwards. Don't make the mistake I did this weekend and fall asleep, sans sun screen, and wake up looking like Sebastian from The Little Mermaid (if I could bathe in a tub of aloe, I would). With the depletion of our o-zone, SPF is more important than ever! Prevent sun burns or any future sun damage with these products that should be used daily: 


Dermalogica Protection SPF 50 Sport

Dermalogica Protection Sport


This sheer sunscreen is a must-have ALWAYS. Its sheer, lightweight formula defends against UV rays, while keeping your skin moisturized without leaving it greasy - which a lot of sunscreens do. It is also light enough to use on your face! Make sure to apply it 15 minutes prior to being out in the sun to ensure you are fully covered - also re-apply regularly if you are swimming or exercising. This should be used no matter the weather to protect your skin from skin-aging environmental effects!
Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50


Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster

If you don't already use an SPF everyday on your face, you must start now! Religiously putting a SPF on your face - even if your foundation has an SPF in the formula - will help your skin in the long run tremendously. Use Dermalogica's Solar Defense Booster by itself or under your make-up! It contains antioxidants to help improve your skins smoothness and softness while defending it against skin-aging free radicals (these cause pre-mature aging) and sun damage. Consistently using SPF on your face will prevent brown spots/skin discoloration, reduce facial red veins & blotchiness, and slow down the development of wrinkles. Sign me up!


Aveda Daily Light Guard SPF 30

Aveda Daily Light Guard


If you like your products to be non-chemical, plant, or mineral-derived then this is the sunscreen for you! This sheer, smooth provides amazing UVA/UVB protection. With plant derived pollution defense: kukui seed oil helps strengthen skin's natural environmental barrier, which an anti-oxidant blend with ginger extracts helps defend again free radical damage. If you are anything like me and find sunscreen can clog your pores or make your skin feel more oily, then you are in luck - Aveda Daily Light Guard is non-acnegenic!
Glo Therapeutics Solar Shade SPF 50

Glo Therapeutics Solar Shade


 This facial sunscreen is a lightweight blend of antioxidants, conditioners, and minerals. It glides on the skin and absorbs quickly, to shield against environmental aggressors and help preserve a youthful glo - who doesn't want that? Again, it goes on so lightweight it doesn't even feel like you are wearing a sunscreen - perfect to use under make-up as well!
