Hello Sunshine! By now, we all know the havoc sun exposure can wreak on our skin. Experts say that although we all crave and actually need our fair share of Vitamin D, we must be sure to protect our skin from UV damage. Unfortunately, the sun is our biggest culprit causing 80% of the visible signs of aging. Everything from dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and premature aging of the skin comes from sun damage. However, the right sunscreen with the best SPF can help defend against these visible signs and help keep our skin healthy. It's important to wear sunscreen every day as part of your skincare routine and especially before heading outdoors.
I’m sharing my top three favorite mineral sunscreens that are both safe and healthy for your skin. I have used and love all three of these, but I’m currently using the Revision Skin Care in my daily routine. I also use this Vitamin C serum in the morning before applying my sunscreen and again in the evening after washing my face. It’s a great addition to use in order to step up my protection efforts!
I love that this is a mineral sunscreen and that with BeautyCounter, over
1,800 questionable ingredients are never used in their formulations! With
this tinted sunscreen, I use the medium shade. It absorbs really well and
whenever I wear this, I’ll typically only add mascara, lip color and a little
bronzer. It gets me out the door in a flash!
This is an amazing sunscreen! It's super lightweight, creamy and sheer with a matte
finish! They even make an eyeshadow that has SPF 30.
This is hands-down my FAVORITE sunscreen and moisturizer!!! I love the fact that it has 20 anti-aging ingredients, because it literally does everything for my skin. Revision, is very lightweight, absorbs quickly and the tint is perfect for all skin tones. I use it like a BB cream and finish with my favorite mineral powder. I can’t even begin to explain how much I love this one. It’s a little pricier than the others but worth every penny to me. Be sure to check it out.
Lastly, I’m including a product that’s safe for our most precious little grand babies. We love using California Baby Everyday/Year-Round Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30+. With our long hot Arizona summers, this sunscreen is perfect to use everyday. I love that California Baby is a mineral sunscreen. It contains essential oils and is safe for sensitive skin and those with eczema.
As you begin making your summer plans for warm days spent on the beach or even at home with family, friends and your grandchildren the key to protecting our skin and practicing anti-aging prevention is for us to build a habit and commit to a routine.
