Love your sun protection!
Do you consider applying sun protection to be a chore? A lot of us do which is why it’s so easy to just not do it. Of course we always regret it when we suffer the consequences. It’s that time of year where the warmer weather catches us by surprise. We’re so excited to get out and enjoy the sun that we forget to protect our skin.
It’s much easier to remember to protect your skin from the sun if you can find a sunscreen that you love. I was delighted to discover several fun products on the market that can turn an unpleasant chore into a real pleasure. You don’t have to settle for the smelly, chalky sunscreens of the past. There are some great choices out there today that will completely change the way you look at sun protection.
COOLA makes a couple of fantastic smelling sunscreens for the body with natural extracts and vitamins that also act as an overall body moisturizer. While I haven’t yet tried the Sport 45 Mango, I can tell you that the Total Body Plumeria smells delectable and really hydrates my skin. I had never heard of plumeria before trying COOLA but it smells so great that I can’t stop sniffing myself. Even if I didn’t plan to see the light of day, I would still wear it for the fragrance and moisture. That’s what’s so perfect about this sunscreen. I put it on without even considering the sun protection factor. Now I don’t even have to think about sunscreen when I leave the house since it’s already there in my moisturizer. How perfect is that?
If you’re tired of creams and lotions or have trouble with hard to reach spots, try Bliss The Big Screen Spf 30. The spray bottle is fun to use and it makes it easy to cover your entire body including your back and shoulders. The citrus smell is light and zesty. It sure makes for a nice change from traditional chemical-smelling sunscreens.
If the inconvenience of toting around bottles is what’s keeping you from protecting your skin while you’re out and about, check out MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection SPF 30 Sunscreen Packettes. Just put a few packettes in your purse for easy sun protection away from home. You won’t have to worry about the nuisance and mess of bottles and tubes as the sunscreen is all contained in a pre-treated pad. What a novel idea!
For the face, COOLA has a product called Face 30 Cucumber that hydrates the skin with a nice fresh scent that really is like cucumbers. At first I found the idea of a cucumber scented product to be a little strange but it is absolutely refreshing.
If you’re like me and prefer a super light-weight, oil-free moisturizer for the face, be sure and check out Murad Energizing Pomegranate Moisture, SPF 15. It hydrates nicely but absorbs quickly so it won’t leave a heavy feel on your skin. You can also probably guess how great the pomegranate fragrance is. Delicious!
You don’t need another nag telling you to protect your skin from the sun. But trust me, if you find a product that’s a pleasure to use, you won’t give sunscreen a second thought.
