I'm Gonna Soak Up The Sun

I’M GONNA SOAK UP THE SUN
I have never been one of those people that can venture out to the beach, pool, or lets just be honest…the outdoors, without sunscreen. My skin is so white the sun just reflects off it for a little while, then it is instant sunburn if I do not have on sunscreen.

Growing up I spent a ton of time out in the sun playing outdoors and I am probably a little overly cautious about my skin now. I know the majority of people think they look better with a tan, but I am one of the few who feels like they look better without a tan or at least not much sun. Usually when I “tan” the sun brings out the red in my face and as you can imagine that does not look good in any situation.

I use sunscreen like my life depends on it in the summer and have a few favorites. Now not to sound like a grandmother, but…the sun actually does have the positional to give you long lasting skin damage. My advice to you is if you are going to spend time outdoors wear at least a 15spf or 30spf sunscreen {I wear 70spf}. Here are a few of my favorite sunscreens.
If you are wanting the look of having a tan without actually tanning, a bronzer can work wonders! It’s time to soak up the sun!

  1. Kiehls makes really great products. Also I recommend Banana Boat After Sun lotion, it's good for rejuvenating your skin after you've been at the beach all day.
