We all just want to have fun in the sun but don’t forget your sunblock! Growing up in California SPF has been part of my daily skincare routine and it definitely helps because recently when I got a chemical peel they had a machine that tells you your skins real age. Mine was 10 years younger than my actual age and the lady who tested my skin says it only reads up to 10 years younger and that my skin could actually be 12-14 years younger. I will that has a little to do with genes, my skincare routine and that I use SPF everyday since I was five years old. If you don’t use it everyday, it’s not too late to start. These are my favorite SPF’s that I have been using recently.
I love Coppertone’s Whipped Sunscreen SPF30it feels like a moisturizer when you apply it. I love that you will be able to find it anywhere if you forget your sunscreen before a hike, beach or outdoor activity you can pick it up. It smells good, the scent makes me think of summer. It feels hydrating and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. It also comes in SPF50 and doesn’t leave you looking white like some sunscreens do. It is water-resistant up to 80 mins! One tip, if you are traveling with it the top is sensitive wrap it in a plastic bag in case it dispenses on its own. I love the whipped light feeling too, a little goes a long way! Get it here, Coppertone.
Glytone’s SPF40 is great, it’s light weight and helps prevent fine line and wrinkles. I love this because it works on every skin type you can even use it after a chemical peel. It feels very light on and is small enough to carry in your bag. The fragrance is light and fresh. It also contains hyaluronic acid that helps boost your natural moisture level and helps fight fine lines and wrinkles. It won’t leave a white or greasy residue and you can use this on your body and face. Buy it here, Glytone.
