Let's talk about S baby?
I am talking about Sunscreen Beautiful! Your skin is the largest organ of the body and its job is to protect us from everyday harm - free radicals, chemicals, etc. So it is very important to apply sunscreen every day to protect us from damaging UV rays. Show your skin some love!
To follow are some tips to protect yourself while still looking good!
Tip #1 - Facial Moisturizer with Sunscreen
Yes, there is much benefit to wearing a daytime moisturizer that has a sunscreen added to it. Something over 30 SPF is the most effective to protect us.
FUN FACT: Did you know that sunscreen can help even out your complexion and improve skin tone and texture? even more reason to be diligent in wearing it daily! Check out this study from AAD.
There are a lot of moisturizers on the market that include sunscreen for daily use. Here is the one I use from DRMTLGY a medical grade skincare line. I like this particular one - because it is a foundation and sunscreen in one! It is also reasonably priced for a 2-in-1!
There are others of course, and if you are looking for a daily moisturizer with SPF that does not have foundation - DRMTLGY does have a clear option on their website or AMAZON carries several, like this best seller for sensitive skin: CETAPHIL MOISTURIZER&SUNSCREEN OR SUN BUM Facial Spray Mist.
Whatever you use remember to use 30 SPF or above!
Tip #2 - Sunscreen for the rest of the body
Sunscreen use can help prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of age, gender or race. This is why it is important to wear this daily but especially reapplied every 2 hours or after swimming while at the beach!
"Sunscreen can also help prevent premature skin aging, such as wrinkles and age spots, caused by too much unprotected UV exposure." -AAD

Tip #3 - SUNSET Hat from Sun Day Afternoon
This is by far my favorite hat for the beach! Yes it is a cowboy style hat so it is very fashionable for the beach, but it is so much more than a cute hat!
This hat is the perfect addition to a day in the sun! It has a rating of UPF 50+ - the highest sun protective rating available (1/50 or less UV rays are able to pass through!)
Shapeable Brim- Packs well for a trip or into a beach bag
Adjustable Neck cord -The chin strap so your hat stays in place when the wind picks up
Sweatband- sweatband pulls moisture away from your body
Adjustable Sizing - with the cord to fit head
Shop Amazon for this great sunhat!
Tip #4 - Umbrella shelter from the sun
An umbrella is a necessity if you are spending the day at the beach. A place to rest, read a book or just cool down for a few minutes.
We have this Sport umbrella and love it. It is so versatile. It is a beach umbrella but can also be used at sporting events, tailgate parties, camping or anywhere you need a little break from the sun and protection with a 50+UPF rating!

Tip #5 - Protect those beautiful eyes
Finally, complete you look with a fabulous pair of sunglasses! But keep in mind to find sunglasses! Be sure to have them polarized for protection and to help with glare.
An Added bonus! These great glasses from Blue Planet actually have readers in them so you can read a book while you lay on the beach!
Of course, no look is complete with out the classic aviator from Rayban! Another timeless look while protecting your beautiful eyes!
You are all set!!
You have a place to start with protecting your skin for everyday and added protection for the beach! A couple of additional items worth mentioning are lip balm with SPF ( Sun Bum SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm) if you have sensitive lips like me and they make all sorts of clothing, cover ups and bathing suits with UPF! Do your research! Be safe and Stay Beautiful my friends!
