Well I am approaching my last day of vacation and I must admit, I've done a really good job of not frying my face in the hot South Carolina sun! Back when I was like 18 I thought it was cool to get a sunburn because it showed everyone I'd been laying out for hours. Lame I know, but that was my thought process as a teen. Now that I'm in my 30's I like to think I've grown a bit wiser and realize that red face also equals wrinkles and major skin damage...not so cool.
So how have I kept my face so sunburn free??
Here are the two products that have kept me protected for 9 straight days on the beach:
Face protected by:Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer ($7) with SPF 20 UVA and UVB protection included! What a great combo to have my skin moisturized while protecting my fair face from the sun but getting color without the harmful sunshine! And it's super important that this face product protects against BOTH UVA and UVB rays while also NOT smelling bad like most self tanners!
Lips protected by:tarte cosmetics 24/7 natural lip sheers ($14). This has been my go to lip product while on the beach because the sheer berry color looks really natural on my lips and isn't sticky at all. This is important because the sand isn't attaching itself to my mouth like it tends to do with some of my other sticky lipglosses nor is my hair that's blowing so beautifully in the wind attaching to my lip product either! And the SPF protection is there too! This might sound pricey for a colored chapstick, but believe me, it's worth every penny because it's also got staying power in addition to all the other wonderful ingredients tarte sticks in this product.
Oh, and the $12 "green goblin" glasses (my husband's description of my rad shades) are compliments of Target. And they're so big they basically do some face protection also- so maybe that makes 3 products;-)
