As much as I love the sun, I’m becoming more and more careful of it’s damaging rays and trying to find ways to still enjoy sunny days in a stylish way. Arming myself with a wide-brimmed hat is one of the ways that I protect my face from the sun in addition to a cute pair of sunglasses plus lightweight long-sleeved tops. I like to make sure that most of my skincare and makeup products also contain an SPF as a second line of defense.
Sunless tanners and bronzers are a great way to get a safe and healthy faux-glow and I’m always trying new ones in search of the perfect warm, sunny shade. I’ve learned that exfoliating before applying self-tanners makes a big difference in how well they work. HSN is one of my new favorite sites for sun-safe skincare plus lots of other beauty products. You can check out their newly-revamped skincare page here: http://www.hsn.com/shop/skin-care/bs0011.
I also try to avoid the mid-day sun here in LA and get my workout in as early in the day as possible and make the most of the late afternoon and early evening light for my outdoor fun.
I’d love to hear your ideas for staying stylish while protecting your skin from the sun!
