Chic SPF

July 11, 2011

After reading this article, I decided to get (even more) serious about sun protection. Naturally, I already use a moisturizer with sunscreen, but a couple of months ago, I added a super sexy Stetson hat to my sun protection routine. I absolutely love it!

It's a men's hat and my head is so unbelievably gigantic, I have to wear a men's LARGE! Strange, but true. I love wearing a hat because I don't get a burn in my part line and it boosts my protection efforts on my face. 

If you're not wearing sunscreen on your face everyday, you really need to cultivate this anti-aging, anti-skin cancer habit. Here are a few suggestions for you.

For almost no coverage, but a sheer tint that adapts itself to your skin tone, use Clinique City Block. It packs a lot of SPF punch with a whopping broad-spectrum protection factor of 40, and it is super affordable at just $25.

To look positively luminescent and have flawless invisible coverage, use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It feels like silk on your skin and seriously makes you glow! This is my all-time favorite tinted moisturizer and a bottle lasts forever. You can apply with your fingers, or layer it on for a bit more coverage with a Beauty Blender.

For weightless protection underneath your foundation or tinted moisturizer (or to just use on its own) I recommend Laura Mercier Protect Foundation Primer. It glides onto your skin with just your fingertips, has 30++ SPF and feels amazing!
Enjoy your summer - and remember, sun protection and the pale skin that goes with it are ultra-chic!
