In case you haven’t noticed I have VERY fair skin and it doesn’t really like the sun. My mother taught me from a very young age to protect my skin and I am so thankful that I didn’t bake then burn and learn the hard way. If I don’t wear spf and a hat and keep semi covered I just get freckles and sun spots and that’s just not the look I’m going for! So, I thought I would share with everybody some of the products I use for a pool/beach day.
If you are looking for a tinted moisturizer look no more! My sister turned me on to the Revision brand about 6 years ago and I love it. It has 45 spf and that’s perfect for me. I will typically put my tinted moisturizer on first, a bit of blush and I always fill in my eyebrows a bit because pregnancy has taken a toll on those suckers. If I have a breakout or I look super sleep deprived I might put on a little concealer. I never take my enormous sunglasses off so you probably won’t see my eyes anyways! Once I get to the pool/beach I cover my entire body and face in a minimum of spf 30 and I love the Neutrogena brand with helioplex. I normally use somewhere around 50-100 spf, but I always buy 30 spf too because my hubby prefers something lower. He actually tans and has gorgeous olive skin. I am so jealous of his tanning capability, haha. Drugstore finds are always fun and I love this lip gloss/chapstick from maybelline. If I’m not going to the pool and it’s just a regular day with the kids I use this sunscreen on my face and neck. I put it on first before I apply any makeup. Ok ladies, have fun in the sun and don’t forget your spf and a BIG hat!
My coverup is orange, but I’m linking the same one in more of a melon color and I also have it in white.
