Oh my it is warming up down here in Texas. I regret to say that I am already not looking forward to the scorching temperatures. I fantasize about planning an escape each summer. Unfortunately it is just a fantasy.
With the rising temperatures and the sun shining down - I am quick to grab the sunscreen. My dad has had a run of bad luck with skin cancer as of late and I don't care to follow in his footsteps (love you dad). I burn easily, never tan and freckle like nobody's business. Sunscreen and me, we are besties.
I almost always (hey - i sometimes forget) apply a facial sunscreen lotion before my moisturizer. I've tried a handful of different brands (drugstore, department store & from the dermatologist). Most of the time they feel too thick. I don't want to actually feel like I have sunscreen on - or smell like I do either, unless I am poolside.
My favorite choice right now is Super Fluid UV Defense by Kiehls. Lighweight. Goes on smooth. No strong scent. I love it and actually don't mind using it. Every. Single. Day. I also like Kiehls Creme de Corps Light-Weight body lotion SPF 30. I will slather that on my neck and arms if I know we will be playing at the park that day. It smells like summer!
I also like to carry the sunscreen stick by California Baby. I can grab it out of my bag easily and apply it to my boys' faces. Most definitely need to protect their precious skin too.
Do you have a favorite brand of sun protection? Do share!
