Now that the weather is starting to kick up into high gear in good old Southern California- with highs of 90+ lately, I have been starting to become very anal on applying sunscreen. Although it is a necessary step, it is not often at times a step I like to do. I don’t know about you but I am not fond of the whole white streaky, greasy, sunscreen action that you usual get with it. So when I read about a new sunscreen from a brand that I trust, I was excited. Without further ado, I bring you A Two Step in Sun Care…
When it comes to sun care and sunblock, one thing that you have to keep in mind is PROTECTION, every day our bodies are directly engaged with damaging UV rays. Not just when you’re baking in the sun trying to get your tan on but just in your day-to-day activities like: driving, walking outside, gardening, etc… So it is an important to practice proper sun care because the sun my friends can be an ultra-powerful thing that can cause some serious damage.
This past month Dermalogica released two new products that are being added to my summer beach bag and slowly into my daily skin care routine. First up is the New Protection 50 SPF Sport– $32 USD, let me just say this stuff rocks! It is super light and feels almost like a moisturizer on the skin. The sunscreen contains lipid-rich oleosome microspheres that help boost the sun protection. It also contains antioxidants that help protect the skin- double score! This new product has a bonus element of it being water resistant for up to 40 minutes- so you can take a quick dip in the pool before needing to reapply. Or if you a sports type of girl, this is a must have for those outdoor activities. With a power punch of ingredients from licorice to help soothe skin, and hyaluronic acid to help add some moisture to the skin all while never being white and streaky. Hands down a must have product in sun protection.
The second product being added to the sun care stash is the newly repacked After Sun Repair– $32USD, this product I can’t believe I have ever lived without it so long. After Sun Repair is one of those products that you don’t realize you need it, until it is tooooo late – a la burnt skin, and sun blisters- ouch! This product is to help heal, sooth and instantly reduce any reduces associated with the sun and burnt skin. Contains a lovely bunch of ingredients like Chamomile, Clove, Cucumber, Lavender and Yucca to all help soothe the skin instantly and reduce UV- induced DNA damage. I am obsessed with this product and have added into my summer beach bag permanently. Added bonus– it smells pretty fab!
So there you have it, a bit of a sun care ramble, although with the addition of these two new products I have managed to stay sunburn free in this ultra-hot heat wave, we are starting to get. Besides ain’t nobody got time for sunburn….
What are a few ways you protect your skin this summer?
