Summertime is right around the corner ladies and gentlemen, and we must prepare ourselves for the imminent danger that lies ahead. That’s right folks, I’m today’s I’m talking about sunscreen.
Is applying sunscreen your favorite step in your routine? No.
Does it leave your face looking greasy by lunchtime? Probably.
Do you begrudgingly apply it every morning anyway? I sure hope so!
And honey, if you’re not already applying sunscreen daily then today’s the day to start.
It’s totally okay if you don’t know where too much about sunscreen as long as you’re slathering some type of protection onto your face. But if you’re looking for unsolicited advice, which I hope you are since you’re here, I would recommend the Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense SPF 30.
Funny enough, I purchased this product by mistake. I thought I was purchasing the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi™ Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops and discovered a happy accident when I got home. Normally, I’d just take it back, but on a whim I decided to give it a shot and I haven’t looked back since.
This sunscreen is AMAZING. First of all, it’s clean beauty, so it’s formulated without the “Suspicious 6,” more commonly referred to as essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS. Second, it’s tinted, so it evens your your gorgeous complexion. AND it helps fight dark spots, fine lines, and uneven texture for all skin types.
If you’re not stoked on the idea of a tinted sunscreen, I totally get it. Try the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen with SPF 40. It’ll run you around $32 and give you all the bang for a little less buck. It won’t leave you shiny or oily at all. PLUS, it grips your makeup to keep you looking fly all day long.
