Summer Beauty Edit: Sun Care


We have officially reached the hottest month of the year and the sun’s not quitting anytime soon, which means that taking measures against the sun’s harmful rays is so important for your skin.  Everyone knows by now that UV rays are damaging to the skin and can cause premature aging and skin cancer.  No matter how old you are it is crucial to be taking precautions now to keep your skin healthy and youthful.


My favorite general sunscreen for days when I know I’ll be getting a lot of sun is Coola Classic Sport in Fresh Mango.  It smells amazing and is ultra hydrating.  Coola’s products are not only cruelty free but also free from parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.  They use natural oils to moisturize and protect the skin while adding antioxidants.  This SPF 50 sunscreen is a great choice for days at the beach or anytime when you’ll be spending time in harsh sunlight.


I recently purchased Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist and I am absolutely loving it.  It’s so handy for when you want to set your makeup or refresh your SPF; I especially love the light herbal scent.  I’m always sure to use at least SPF 30 and keep my face out of the sun whenever possible, but for those times when I can’t stay away from it I like being able to give my face a quick spritz of this SPF 50 spray.


I also really love Supergoop Acai Fusion lip balm.  It keeps my lips protected from the sun, no one likes burnt and blistering lips, and it also smells amazing.  The sun can be very damaging to your lips as it breaks down the collagen and elastin of the skin, which can mean dry, cracked lips.  This balm keeps your lips moisturized while also combating environmental factors such as free radicals.


I also felt the need to mention these little guys below, which are actually sample sizes, because I received them in an order and I am beyond impressed.  I will definitely be purchasing full sizes.  The Suntegrity Sunscreen and Primer smells like cucumber; it’s a stronger smell than I would typically go for, but it doesn’t linger after use so I don’t mind it.  This product was perfect for the beach and didn’t cause any breakouts.  I also really love the Suntegrity Tinted Suncreen, it is perfect for summer weekends when you want some light coverage and sunscreen.  I have been wearing only this the past few weekends and my skin has been reacting very well.  I love having a combo product that simplifies my morning routine.


Thanks for checking out my sun care must haves, let me know if you have any favorites! Oh and don’t forget your hat and sunglasses to protect that pretty face of yours 🙂

xoxo, A
