sun-kissed skin.

Hey all! So I thought I’d share one of my quick summer tips for protecting your skin. In the summer, makeup usually stays very light or sometimes even nonexistent; however you should continue to protect your skin as is, 365 days a year. I know there are a lot of moisturizers out there that come with sunscreen, but many of them smell odd, come off quick, are too greasy, are expensive at times, and the list goes on.

So what I do is pick my favorite  moisturizer and mix it with a nice UV protecting sunscreen. I use Ponds Clarant B3 for my face, an organic lavender body lotion (take a look here), and regular sunscreen. I just take a dab of each, depending on how much I need, and mix it in my hand. Remember you only need SPF 30, the higher you go won’t make much of a difference in protection. This makes for a very personalized sunscreen, allows you to pick the moisturizer you think is best for your skin that day and stays affordable. Also, as a plus, the sunscreen acts as a highlighter (I’ve discovered), which gives your skin that beautiful, healthy glow without having to put extra products on your face.

Hope you enjoyed this post! What are some of your summer tricks?
