In case you didn’t already know, it’s summer and if you aren’t sure that’s true, head to Philadelphia and get yourself a taste of the most hot/humid air ever. Can you tell I’m a little grumpy about it?
Even if it is hotter than ever, it’s summer and for that I am grateful. I have always been one to love the warmer weather and the pool/beach days that come with this season. If I could, I would sunbathe by our pool all day, every day.
Now, I may be mostly Italian, but I am very fair skinned (thanks to my Mom for the added Irish genes). In the past, I never let my pale skin stop me from laying out for hours in the sun smothered in tanning oil. In return, I have suffered from some of the most intense sunburn you could imagine. Luckily for me and my skin, I grew up and realized how incredibly important it is to protect your skin both in and out of the sun.
Skincare has become one of the most important aspects of my beauty regime over the past few years. Makeup is fun and I love wearing it, but it’s what is under the makeup that really matters. Keeping my skin clean, healthy, and protected is a top priority and this is especially the case in the summer. This is why I am always on the hunt for the perfect sunscreen.
When looking for the perfect sunscreen I focus on brands that cater to those with sensitive skin (look for ones labeled hypoallergenic). As for the formula, I aim for those that are lightweight and ones that don’t streak when applied. This is not always easy when you need get into the higher SPF’s, but if you do your research, you can find them.
Here is a collection of some of my favorites that I have tried over the years. Let me know some of your favorites!Pin It
