Summer Talk: SPF Safe

Now that Summer is here, I find myself going to the beach every single weekend. It’s close to where I live, it’s a great way to spend time with my friends and boyfriend and nothing makes me happier than having my toes in the sand. So whats the problem? Sun damage is the problem. Too much sun can be harmful for your skin, believe me I know! My mother has been scaring me with wrinkle stories from the minute I turned 25. But I am also not willing to compromise my beach time. So this is how I turned into one piece swimsuits and beach cover-ups. It’s the perfect solution! One piece swimsuits are very flattering, they make the body look longer and I always feel more comfortable in them anyways. I have one in every color! And since I don’t want the awkward tan line from the one piece, I have found that a beach cover-up is the way to go! I will still wear bikinis from time to time but I love that I have found the perfect combo for those days where it is too sunny and I want to be safe ❤

Now, I have wanted to write about this topic for a long time so for this shoot I hunted down a location that best represented my fears: wrinkles + sun damage. So this is why I picked this rocky scene, its the perfect reminder of how I DO NOT want my skin to look like by the time Im 30! Am I right? So lets get to it.. I put together this look, hope you guys like it!

Beach Look

Now I rarely review products usually stick to fashion but since I am already in the SPF subject, I wanted to include my top suncare products below! *I did NOT get paid to promote any of these products or received them for free to review. This is 100% my honest opinion and I hope you find it useful…

Skin Care

I LOVE this moisturizer because it is the lightest product I have ever tried! Women, believe me when I say I have tried them all and finding a moisturizer that also has SPF was beginning to feel like a nightmare. But Shiseido came to save the day! I use this for everyday life and doesn’t leave my skin greasy, I love it!

 

 

wander with loveNeutrogena Face & Body Stick is my favorite of all! I use this one if I know I will be spending more time in the sun. The Ultra Sheer part does not lie!! No more white sunblock spots and no more greasy looks. I also love how easy it is to use therefore I find myself reapplying more often than with liquid ones. I’ve been recommending it for years and have yet to receive a complain:)

Yes to this delicious therapy! I have tried more products from this brand and I have to be honest, I haven’t loved them all BUT their lip balm is perfect! I love the coconut flavour, its unbelievably hydrating and its as natural as it gets! I love this for everyday life, I have one in practically every purse I own.

 

 

 

 

 

Weekend Must Haves

 

 

 

Nivea is a brand I have trusted for years. Often the pharmacy finds are the best ones! I use this one on the weekends and I love that its waterproof. I can honestly say I will continue to use this one for more years to comelight and hydrating

 

 

 

 

My last one I use daily. When Summer arrives I don’t trust any body lotion that doesn’t include SPF. And I have found that  Aveeno makes a wonderful one! Its light in texture and perfume and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I believe its important to be safe and it starts with the morning moisturizer. To me it’s the perfect summer companion!
