Tips for Staying Safe in the Sun

It doesn’t take much to be exposed to the sun during the summer time (that was a mouthful), but here are some tips to help you protect yourself when that sun is shining bright!

Start your morning off with the right sunscreen

For me, that’s Total Defense and Repair by Skin Medica. It is a broad spectrum sunscreen that is also a treatment for your skin packed with antioxidants! Another great thing about it is it dries matte so you don’t feel like you’re melting on a hot day.

Or another favorite product of mine (and my MIL’s) is Jane Iredale PurePressed Powder. I love this product first of all because it has SPF 20 but I also like that it provides full coverage, which is what my face requires.

Grab your wide brimmed hat and umbrella.

This one should work just fine…

I mean, this lady looks happy to be wearing one. This could be you.

And umbrellas aren’t just for the rain. Look celebrities do it too. 

In all seriousness though, you can still enjoy the great outdoors and protect yourself while you’re at it. 

I recently bought an umbrella for my lawn chair and debuted it during a Father’s Day picnic on Sunday and my brother made fun of me. I gotta tell ya, I’m okay with being that girl.

 

Step into the shade

Since about the day I met my MIL she’s always expressed her distaste for her wrinkles and it wasn’t until I truly got to know her more that I understood the cause. The sun.

She loves playing golf, gardening and pretty much any other activity outdoors, which is great, but she doesn’t take the extra measures to truly protect herself from the harmful (yet beautiful) rays. 

We stopped in at Andy’s one time for a little mid-afternoon ice cream snack and when we got our treats we stepped out from under the awning and I immediately stepped into the shade of a nearby tree and what does she do…steps in the sun. I called her out.

Listen, if that’s you and you don’t ever plan on changing, that’s fine. You do you. But please, please, please…

Reapply, reapply, reapply 

My favorite for reapplication throughout the day is Eminence Organics Sun Defense Minerals. It’s super handy. You can just throw it in your purse, your beach bag or your gym bag and whip it out when you need it and best of all it’s water resistant and great for the pool!

I hope you take away some tips from this blog but if not, I hope I was at least able to make you giggle.
