While I do love and indulge in my daily sunscreen-less sun soaks (15 mins before 10am + 15 mins after 3:30pm) to keep my Vitamin D levels up for adequate healing + energy, during the peak hours I am adequately slathered. Here are my top sun protection picks for various needs:
SUN HAT :: M.PARKE VINTAGE...a summer must have!
EVERY DAY DAILY MOISTURIZER :: JOSH ROSEBROOK'S NUTRIENT DAY CREAM W SPF 30...this is a wonderfully hydrating all day cream that offers the perfect amount of protection, while utilizing an amazing combination of herbal actives + plant oils to repair + moisturize. Josh has chosen a high quality uncoated, mineral zinc oxide to provide lightweight sunblock against harmful solar rays. Even more, this FDA approved mineral is scientifically proven to inhibit environmental cell loss, boosting your skin's vital collagen structure – the foundation of youthful skin.
TINTED DAILY MOISTURIZER :: PACIFIC EVERYDAY SHEER COVERAGE W SPF 20...their formula, which also smells amazing, delivers broad-spectrum UV protection for aging skin with non-nano zinc oxide and powerful antioxidants—all with a sheer matte finish that makes it ideal for everyday use. It also contains pearl powder which helps to give skin a luminous finish.
BODY :: SUNTEGRITY'S UNSCENTED BODY SPF 30...this non-greasy mineral sunscreen is unscented, vegan and offers broad-spectrum protection. It is free of harsh chemicals like parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic dyes, sulfates, nanoparticles and chemical UV absorbers.
