The days are longer, the flowers are blooming and this spring weather already has us tapping our feet in anticipation for summer! Our dreams are slowly being filled with nothing but bright pool filled days. There’s nothing more relaxing than a day spent out in the sun with good friends (and a cute swimmer of course)!
As much as we all love having the just-got-off-of-a-tropical-island glow, sun protection is a big deal for us over here! It is so so so important to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays when you're out in the sun. We gathered up a short list of some of our staff's favorite tried and trusted sunscreens that provide the coverage your skin needs as well as a few additional benefits. It's never too early to start stocking up for all of your sun filled summer adventures, right?!
Best For Your Face
Is there anything worse than overly rosy cheeks or a peeling nose due to a sunburn?! We currently can't think of anything but don't fret, Neutrogena has an amazing moisturizing facial lotion that helps prevent that nightmare. This lotion contains alpha hydroxy, which helps to even your skin tone as it increases your face's sunscreen absorption and helps to repair skin that may already have minor sun damage. It absorbs quickly into your skin and doesn't produce any greasy residue after an extended period of time. So slather this on, jump in the pool and relax knowing your face is fully protected!
Best For Your Body
This moisturizing sunscreen protects you from those harmful UVA/UVB rays as well as enriches your skin with Vitamin E, which neutralizes free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin. This brand of sunscreen has been tested and approved by The Skin Cancer Foundation, so you can rest assured that you and your skin will be taken care of. Plus it smells amazing. Win win!
Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Lotion,
This is a moisturizer that we are obsessed with. Obsessed! Containing a complex of nurturing Vitamins E, B5 and CG plus high potency moisturization, this greaseless formula provides 24-hour hydration. Your skin will look its healthy best and feel touchably soft all day. Plus, with SPF 30 sunscreen and essential antioxidant protection, Bienfait Multi-Vital gives your skin what it needs to help fight the visible effects of environmental skin damage that you are sure to be exposed to this summer! Try it, you won’t be sorry!
Best For Your Hair and Scalp
We know that we're guilty of forgetting to put sunscreen on our hair and scalp. It is just as important to protect our scalps from harmful UV rays as it is the rest of our skin and that's why this product is so so great. This non-greasy, frizz fighting, argan oil infused formula will protect your hair from the sun and provide the benefits of a leave-in-conditioner. It also keeps any color-treated hair from fading due to harsh chemicals such as chlorine or over exposure to the natural elements.
