As the days get longer and hotter, you should think about what you’re putting on your skin to get you through each day. And that thing should be sunscreen — scientists say so and wrinkled pictures of old people prove it. Lets take a look at what you should be wearing every day.
From The Drug Store: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen – You’re at the beach and you take your shirt off. Then, as if an Eskimo was bear-hugging you, two freezing hands begin to rub grease all over your back and body. Well Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch goes on lightly and doesn’t leave you with “ghost glow,” that annoying white cast that some sunblocks give you. Better yet, all Neutrogena products are now made with Helioplex, which offers ultra protection from the sun’s UVB and UVA rays. Very few other brands can make that claim.
Best Organic Sunscreen: Lavera – The California-based sunscreen manufacturer has a comprehensive range of products to suit everyone. Seriously, he has everything covered from those suffering with allergies to babies and children to adults looking for anti-aging sunscreen. The last of course being the most important. After all the sun’s UVA light and sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging.
Protect Your Lips: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm – Nothing is more unattractive than chapped, dry lips (really, even Megan Fox would be unappealing with chapped, cracked lips). It’s loaded with natural coconut and sunflower oils, which soften and condition the lips. Oh, and as an added bonus, it’s tingly too (it has peppermint).
Great Time Saver: Aveda Dual Nature Face Protection (with SPF 15) – Avoid heavy creams for your face, especially in the morning and at night. Try this oil-free, noncomedogenic sunscreen with SPF 15 protection (or higher). It moisturizes and protects so it’s like honey in a bottle…without the mess.
