Summer Sun Safety Tips

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

This time of year we all LOVE to be outside and feel the warmth on our skin. I’m with you, sister. But…staying safe in the summer is so important. The sun is dangerous, can cause cancer and age you! No thanks!

Not sure about you but I’ve been on the anti-wrinkle train recently. Yes, I’m only 23 but it’s all about prevention! I want to prevent sun damage while I can before it come irreversible. Make sense? I want to be a milf one day…is that so much to ask?

Now that summer is upon us I’ve got a few summer sun safety tips to use everyday or on your summer vacay.

  • Avoid the Sun (duh)

There are a few layers to this one. On the day-to-day I try my best to avoid the sun by walking in the shade, sitting in the shade while on my lunch break outside, and wearing sunglasses as much as I can. Small pockets of time add up when it comes to sun exposure. Just be conscious of avoiding the sun can help to make this change.

  • Daily Facial Sunscreen

I am so not a fan of liquid sunscreens that go on before makeup. I feel like they make me so oily and my foundation just slips off. I found this and I can just brush it on top of  my makeup. It goes on clear for me so I kinda think of it as a setting powder. In the summer this is a daily necessity.

  • Good Sunscreen Brands

We’re getting specific here. Recently my friend introduced me to the brand Alba. Not only is it good for sensitive skin, it’s vegetarian, made without sulfates and coral reef safe! Perfect for all your summer get aways. It’s important to me to use natural brands in my beauty routine as much as I can and this includes sunscreen. I will be purchasing shortly!!

 

  • After Sun Care
