SPF Summer Guide!

Bookmark and Share Posted on 06/21/2012

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.

 

 

 

As seen on Oprah, Hampton Sun was created especially for the Hampton Set or individuals who love the sun but not the burn. They provide superior tanning products but what they're also known for is that signature fragrance of the region's blooming privet hedges. Hampton Sun Tanning Oil SPF 8 Gel is an amazing silky spray that feels luxurious without feeling greasy. As it only comes in SPF 8, be sure to apply often or over a higher power SPF lotion. 

Becca Cosmetics Butter Balm SPF 20 will have your lips begging for more with it's delish tahitian vanilla and cocoa butter aroma. This not only is the ultimate lip conditioner but can also be worn for a natural gloss effect but works wonders underneath a lipstick that tends to dry out the lips.
