Sun Protection for Your Walks During Social Distancing
What. A. Time. Hopefully everyone is feeling alright, all things considered. Since you, like me, are probably taking multiple walks a day, I thought it would be a good time to share my favorite products for sun protection.
During the transitional time between winter and spring, it's super important to ramp up your skincare practices. Seasons changing always can bring about changes to your skin. Maybe it's time to reevaluate your routine, but it's definitely time to protect your skin from unnecessary damage.
Now although I do believe in sun protection, I also believe in healthy sun exposure. Give yourself up to 10 minutes of unencumbered rays each day and it will work wonders for your mood and immunity.
Let's get to the products. First up, a product I use daily, Laurel's Sun Serum. While this isn't technically a sunscreen, its ingredients are rich in phytonutrients that are believed to strengthen your response to the sun. It also helps combat signs of sun damage. Truly a Holy Grail for me.
For traditional sunscreen, I love Spa Technologies Eco Defense SPF 25. I became familiar with this product while working at a spa, and fell in love with it for its invisible protection, lightweight texture, and delightful scent (reminds me of fruit candy, but very light).
Another favorite of mine is Heliotropic Pot of Shade by Kypris. I adore this sunscreen alone or as a primer underneath makeup. It boasts an SPF 30 and never clogs the pores.
For a budget friendly option, I love this from Suntegrity which can be used on face and body. It is unscented and suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
And no sunscreen roundup would be complete without mentioning Josh Rosebrook's Nutrient Day Cream. This SPF 30 is the OG of clean sun protection. It comes in a tinted version as well, and for all you NDC lovers, did you know it's also available in a jumbo size?
Hope these recommendations are helpful, and drop me a line to let me know how you're doing. Sending love to all.
