Here’s a familiar tale: It’s summer. You’re hitting back-to-back beach days. Or you’re out in the garden and picnicking in parks when — oh. no. You realize you forgot to reapply your SPF. And well…you’re sunburned! But before it happens to you, let’s talk prevention… and if necessary, treatment, for safer summer sun ahead.
Practice safe skin…
Broad Spectrum / Suntegrity ‘Body Sunscreen’ + Cocokind ‘Daily SPF’ – Even if you “never sunburn” in the summer, every skin tone is at risk of sun damage from UVA + UVB rays – which is why the term ‘broad spectrum’ is *so* important! Our fave for everyBODY is Suntegrity’s SPF 30 non-greasy formula. And for the face, try Cocokind’s SPF 32 for all skin types + skin tones!
Apply…everywhere! / Salt & Stone ‘Lip Balm SPF 30’ – Protect your ears, neck, nose and YES, even your *lips*! This 2-in-1 SPF-meets-lip balm provides both hydration + sun protection without the white cast left by most non-nano zinc oxide formulas.
Soothe / Josh Rosebrook ‘Hydrating Accelerator’ – When the skin experiences a burn, dehydration + irritation may come with it. To instantly calm and hydrate skin, this mist is an instant *ahhh* moment of relief thanks to restorative aloe juice, marula oil + evening primrose oil. Psst…store in the fridge all summer long for an extra cooling moment!
Hydrate / GoopGenes ‘Nourishing Body Butter’ + Tata Harper ‘Fortifying Moisturizer’ – Moisturizers are your ‘right hand’ during the recovery period. For the body, indulge in GoopGenes’ ultra luxe body butter for instant rehydration. For a compromised complexion, reach for a rich cream like Tata Harper’s, which works to restore your skin’s barrier.
