While summer‘s in session, it’s important to not only remember to keep the kids’ skin protected from the sun, but yours as well! As a busy mom, it can be easy to let your own sun protection slip to the bottom of the priority list — which is something blogger and mom of two Shahla Sandoval understands too well.
That’s why Shahla’s got us covered with her holy grail products for summer sun protection. From sunscreen powder to lip cream, here are her summer beauty must-haves.
1. SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense
At SPF 50, this is a perfect base to use underneath your makeup, or in lieu of makeup since it is tinted. It adapts to most skin tones without leaving a white film behind. This product not only provides sun protection, but it also evens skin tone! However, if you’re worried about shade matching, try the un-tinted version — Sheer Physical UV Defense (SPF 50).
2. SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense Eye Cream
We often forget to protect our eye area — so with this eye cream, you can feel better knowing that you are protecting the delicate skin around your eyes. It not only goes on smooth, but also does not settle into your fine lines.
3. Supergoop Defense Setting Mist
This setting mist is a great addition to any makeup bag to help you touch up your sun protection throughout the day. It’s refreshing on a hot summer day and can be reapplied over your existing makeup.
4. Supergoop Sunscreen Powder
This translucent powder offers a built-in brush applicator — making it easy to reapply your sunscreen. It comes tinted in multiple shades that you can play around with.
5. Vanicream Lip Protection
Introducing: one of the only lip creams with sun protection that seems to not have a chemical aftertaste! This lip cream does have a little bit of a white tint (from zinc), but thankfully, it isn’t very opaque.
6. Straw Hat
You can’t forget to protect your face with a hat! This style is super flattering and can be dressed both up and down. The wide brim offers a lot of sun protection.
This selection from Quay is a great way to sport a trendy style without breaking the bank. You just can’t go wrong with a pair of oversized sunnies!
