Ahh my favorite time of the year is upon us: the fun in the sun, let's play outside all the time seasons! Living in LA we get the sun most of the year (the best coast!) and as I'm getting older skincare is becoming a HUGE focus in my beauty routine. I'll be honest, when I was in my teens I used to BAKE in the sun without reapplying my first layer of sunscreen, not to mention the fact that I didn't use SPF or UVA products on non-beach days. #yikes So it's safe to say, I've been in repair mode for the past 10 years and I've also been making sure I'm preventing as much as possible in my everyday beauty.
Here are a few tips and some great finds from Target to create a glowy (and protective) fun in the sun look:
4 Fun in the Sun Beauty tips:
- always SPF: sounds silly but we should all be wearing SPF/UVA protection every day not just when we're planning to spend the day at the park or beach. Did you ever read those articles on truck drivers who compared their left sides (window side) to their right sides? The damage to their skin both under the microscope and superficial on the window side was SO extensive compared to the right side. Totally nuts! I've been loving the La Roche Posay Anthelios body/face sunscreen because it's super light and doesn't feel heavy or oily on the skin.
- don't forget your lips: they need shielding too! As you know, I've been so in to Sonia Kashuk lipsticks lately and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they have SPF 16 in them. #winwin
- go peachy coral: for spring + summer I like to embrace peach and coral tones in my lip, cheeks and eye colors. I picked up the NYX Bon Voyage palette a few weeks ago and it's the perfect palette for the season.
- sheeny not shiny: it's all about the glow and Pixi's Glow Mist is where it's at. It adds just the right amount of glow for a dewy look.
