I'm sure many of us have heard our mother's stories that begin like, "When I was young we would lay out all day and lather ourselves in oil….we didn't ever use sunscreen." For many, this was the norm because melanomas and the dangers of unprotected sun exposure weren't as known to the public as they are now. Although we are more educated, people are still spending a lot of time in the sun and possibly doing irreparable damage that we don't know about until it's to late.
In no way am I an advocate for 'no sun baking at all." I happen to love the sun, beach vacations and the way my skin looks with a bit of bronze color. However, we know a lot more about the dangers of the sun than my mother and her peers did at the time and we need to take that extra 5-10 minutes every hour or so to make sure we are properly protected. This is also where a great sunscreen comes into play. As seen in Town & Country, this year the FDA's new sunscreen regulations are coming into effect, with a maximum of SPF 50 being available and eliminating those confusing terms such as sunblock, sweat proof and water proof. The aim is to make sun protection less confusing and more appleaing.
Case in point, lifestyle brand Soleil Organique, that manages to capture the glamour of beach vacations in their stylish tan and gold packaging, yet very sensible and strict when it comes to having the safest possible ingredients. This luxury SPF range has been seen by the glamorous island hoppers of Turks & Caicos, Barbados and Nevis islands. As seen in June's Town & Country, Soleil Organique's Mineral Sunscreen Mist for Body SPF 45 boasts no synthetic fragrances, paragons, nor sulfates. Just the goods: Titanium and zinc oxide mineral screens and and anti-aging booster of antioxidant rich red algae. Shop this and the entire Soleil Organique sunscreen range here.

SPF application has never been a luxurious task, until now. Soleil Organique is a relevant and shall I say trendy (I'm starting the trend by the way) line of naturally based sun care products. From their tan and gold packaging that has been seen on the stylish sands of St Barths, Mystique and Barbados and in the hands of the most beautiful beach dwellers, this 100% marine and mineral based line is the next generation in sun care.
Soleil Organique's mineral sunscreens come in a variety of application types and product varieties. From the 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45, that comes in a convenient non-aerosol pump for easy application to the Environmental Defense Moisturizer For Face SPF 20, which is a an anti-oxidant rich, everyday moisturizer that also helps to prevent premature aging.
One of my personal favorites is the Environmental Defense Hand Cream SPF 15. You have no idea how badly our hands are exposed to the sun just doing regular activities, the worst being driving. If you know you're going to be in the car for a long time, hand on the wheel and fully exposed to the suns ray's, then this really is a key product to carry in your purse or leave in a cool place in your car.

Keep your eyes in their prime with…..an eye primer! Toners, sunscreens and primers aren't typically at the top of people's beauty list but they're also highly underestimated. You never want to get a lemon which is why the New York Time's T Magazine blog recently showcased four eye primers that pack a punch, fulfill their promise and are well worth the price point. Two of those just happen to be from b-glowing.com!
Soleil Organique's Environmental Defense Eye Therapy protects skin around the eyes, smoothes fine lines, boosts collagen and camouflages dark circles with Hydrolized Soy Fiber, Peptides, and CoQ10. Best of all it serves a dual function of daily eye cream and primer in one!
By Terry's Hyaluronic Eye Primer is a frosty tinted foam that instantly fills in lines, deep wrinkles and furrows around the eye area. It's tinted formulation with mineral pigments and micro power prisms leave a luminous yet matte finish to make eyes appear younger and brighter!

It's the first day of summer and are you ready for sunny happy hours, influx of hamburgers and hotdogs, and the amount of possible sun damage you might be exposing yourself to? Probably not and that isn't a real surprise. When I leave the house for work on Friday my thoughts aren't always on if I made sure I packed my sunscreen for that afterwork picnic, but if I'll need to re-touch my makeup prior to going.
Although its difficult, sun protection needs to be at the priority level of our beauty routine going into these warmer months and luckily great formulas and packaging to accommodate every lifestyle means there's not many more excuses we can give. To make the decision making process a lot easier take at our Summer SPF Guide:
I've fallen in love with not only Supergoop's mission to provide UV protection free of paragons, petrochemicals and fragrances but also their ingenious packaging to suit busy families on the move. Case in point: Supergoop SPF 30+ Endless Summer Pump that comes with a cut out circular handle that kids would love to bring to the car! It's lightweight and water resistant and ideal for every member of the fam, from fourth months of age and up!
Get your SPF sexy back with Soleil Organique. Their beautiful tan and gold packaging eludes 'I'm a high roller' plus each product is filled with anti aging and skin nourishing technologies as well as being made of 100% mineral and marine based actives. I'm a high maintenance girl and like to have a bit of my face on when going to the beach and don't want to wipe it off with sunscreen. My dream product for those who think like I do is Soleil Organiques 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45. Simply spritz your face like a toner a few times and you're covered and still looking fab of course.
