So, yes, I am a stickler about SPF.
It is seriously one of the easiest things anyone can do to keep their skin younger, longer. It doesn't have to be the most expensive as long as it works and doesn't irritate your skin. Any time we are outside or on the lake with friends, I like to bring plenty of extra sunscreen because I love to share! I also enjoy trying new sunscreens and am always curious to see what other people like.
Before you read this list you must know that you should take the time to invest in your skin because its going to represent you for a very long time. It also sucks having to pay someone to cut cancerous skin cells off your body and face.
So here's a few of my favorite SPF products that are great for everyday and on the go.
Body- Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen Broad Spectrum 32 - $50
Protect your skin with the natural defenses of zinc and herbal ingredients in this organic sun screen that blocks harmful UVA and UVB rays.Shea Butter is calming and moisturizing; excellent emollient for skin and naturally-occurring sun screen. Zinc Oxide is an astringent and soothing; aids in healing the appearance of skin irritations and blocks broad spectrum UVA and UVB rays. This will make your skin smell naturally wonderful. Skin is protected from UVA/UVB/UVC rays as well as moisturized and revitalized. Complexion appears softened and even while skins texture appears silky and smooth.
Body Oil- Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil with meadowfoam - $34
For when I am just in the store, needing a body sunscreen that very day, I grab this lovely SPF oil. Non-greasy formula with superior antioxidant protection, diminishes signs of UV damage, prevents moisture loss, and enhances skin hydration. Meadowfoam seed oil reinforces skin’s natural lipid barrier, enhancing moisturization and helping to prevent moisture loss due to dehydration from the sun’s rays
Lips- Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 - $28
Carry this awesome little guy everywhere. Moisturize and protect dry lips with this hydrating lip balm stick. All natural SPF15 defends dry lips against harmful UV exposure, while soothing rosehip oil relieves dryness and rejuvenating lavender restores softness. Dry, weather-ravaged lips are perfectly moisturized and protected from future damage.
Hands- Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream SPF 40 - $13 for purse size
I always have this in my car for any unexpected long commutes. The other weekend, I got caught at an outdoor event that I had not planned for and just put this little guy on my hands and arms and threw it in my purse! Formulated with omega-7 fatty acid-rich sea buckthorn fruit, shown to help lighten dark spots, and skin nourishing meadowfoam seed and argan oil, this moisturizing age-defier improves skin’s elasticity and texture while safeguarding skin from future photodamage.
Moisturizer- Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil - $110
Vitamin C is another MAJOR KEY in anti-aging and age prevention. It helps to repair the skin while enhancing the function of SPF. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that neautralizes free radicals that cause premature signs of aging, including slowing down sun damage. The Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil is an effective facial treatment comprised of a blend of results-oriented actives and ingredients that provide intense hydration and protection. This is for all skin types, including sensitive. This is one I do recommend for travel if you can. It just keeps your skin so calm and soothed, protected and moisturized.
Face- Translucent powders - $60
These hypoallergenic, non pore clogging, chemical free, natural minerals provide water-resistant SPF 30 sun protection to women, men, and children. Just brush this on and you're ready to go. Darker shades can be used as a bronzer. I love to wear this on top of my Rosehip triple C+E Firming Oil. Spritz some Stone Crop Hydrating Mist on top to set powder and hydrate. VOILA!
