While being sun-kissed can make you look skinnier, healthier, keep up your vitamin D levels, and give you a natural glow—it can also lead to skin cancer, wrinkles, and brown spots. It is important to find that natural balance between healthy sun and becoming a leathery person.
Wear sunscreen. Seriously, just do it. Use a moisturizer with sunscreen daily. Once you begin this habit, it’s easy to remember. If you think that sounds irritating, buy a makeup with sunscreen in it. If you want to use a moisturizer with sunscreen, use Purpose Dual Treatment Moisturizer. It has an SPF of 15 and does not make you greasy at all. It’s light, gentle, and perfect for sensitive skin (even I can use it!). If you’d prefer a makeup that guards you from the sun, you’re safe with Bare Minerals or, for dry skin, use laura mercier’s tinted moisturizer . It has an SPF of 20, goes on evenly, and does not look like you’re wearing makeup at all. If you are in the sun everyday (even walking to and from work or school), it is also a good idea to use a body moisturizer with some SPF. Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Moisturizing Lotion has an SPF of 30, is loaded with vitamin E, and has no stickiness whatsoever. It is perfect for everyday use.
When it comes to sunscreen for the beach or pool, Neutrogena Dry Touch sunscreen is a great way to go- gives you coverage and has Helioplex® with total UVA protection. The sunscreen is oil-free and entirely grease-free too. This one is ideal for a pool party where you’re hanging out with some new guys.
Another product you can use is the Sunpill. The Sunpill boosts UV defense within your body, and thus is ideal for those who live in warmer climates and are exposed to sun year-round. It does not prevent your body from receiving the beneficial effects of Vitamin D and prevents the aging damage. The natural ingredients are mostly antioxidants that kill free radicals, such as pomegranate, green tea extract, astaxanthin, and beetroot extract. If you take one daily, it will boost your ability to be exposed to the sun without receiving such harmful effects. Try the Sunpill now!
