Sun Protection

Summer has finally arrived meaning time for the patio, cottage, beach and basically anything outdoors. Unfortunately with all the fun in the sun, skin can become hot and bothered and end up sun-damaged. Here are some of my favourites that help me to maintain my summer glow and minimize the chance of that unwanted redness.

 Coola Unscented Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
This face sunscreen provides the ultimate protection for a day outdoors. Its light, natural, and greaseless formula doesn’t clog pores, making sure that your skin remains protected without the risk of breakouts.

 Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
For those who want some light coverage and protection at the same time, this multitasking miracle cream is for you! While delivering SPF protection, this cream minimizes shine and evens out your skin tone to leave you looking flawless.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm SPF 15
Not a lot of lip balms have SPF which is why lips often remain vulnerable to the sun’s rays. Kiehl’s SPF 15 lip balm has you covered, delivering its regular moisturizing properties and providing relief from chapped and sun-damaged lips, while also delivering UVA and UBA protection.

Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel
If you happened to have gotten a sunburn and are aching for relief, fear not. Aloe vera gel possesses moisturizing and cooling properties, creating a protective barrier to trap in moisture and allow your skin to heal. Just stick the bottle in the fridge for that bit of extra relief.
