Here in Arizona, we take sun protection pretty seriously. But just because you may not be in the desert, doesn't mean you shouldn't too! UV rays are strong and dangerous. It's the quiet danger we often overlook.
Staying protected from the sun is beyond important. Take the proper precautions! Your skin deserves it.
Did you know the skin cancer is the number one cancer in America. It's estimated that over 9,500 Americans are diagnosed in the US every day. (American Academy of Dermatology)
There are 2 main types of UV rays that damage our skin. Both types can cause skin cancer:
It really is so easy to keep yourself protected. Thankfully, I've always been a hat girl! Well.. at least since my shoulder injury. Doing my hair is a serious pain in the ass, haha. But luckily, for everyone else, floppy hats are super on trend. You can find them almost anywhere!
I have extremely sensitive skin, it is seriously such a nuisance. Thankfully, Neutrogena has established such a phenomenal skin protection line. We always keep a bunch on hand.
My husband and I lived in Orange County, CA for many years. You never knew when you'd have some downtime to head to the beach for an hour. I got into the habit of wearing sunscreen every. single. day. I'm not saying that is what you haaaave to do. But it is so important to stay protected. If you know you're going to be in the sun, you really should protect your skin and eyes in some way. Sunscreens, sunglasses, a lightweight cover such as a kimono, hats.. there really are too many easy options for you NOT to protect yourself.
One of the most common complaints that I hear regarding sunscreen, is that its greasy. Trust me, I'm so with you there. I greatly dislike feeling greasy or slimy, any time. Again though, Neutrogena has eliminated that feeling. It absorbs into your skin, leaving you feeling fresh and protected.
I also recommend that you find a foundation with spf already in it. During the summer, this is all I wear. Here we are again with my sensitive skin. Hello, BareMinerals! It is 100% my makeup go to. Their Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Cream Foundation is literally the best. It goes on fairly sheer, but then it changes to match your skin. It reduces the redness in your face, and evens out your skin tone. You can also layer it for a fuller coverage look. Its my perfect fit for foundation. Let me tell you, it took me forever to find what works best for me. Now that I have, good luck getting me to try anything else. Good coverage, non-greasy, lightweight and spf? Yes, please!
Again, it really is so important to keep your skin protected. With endless options, it couldn't be easier to do so! Have a FABulous summer, but be sure to do it safely! Xo
