Face & Body Sunscreens for the Season

Hotel X Toronto, Rooftop Pool. Sunscreens

Oh baby is it ever getting hot out! I love the heat, I love the sun, I am a summer child, through and through! But have you seen me?! I am not a fan of UV rays and sunburns, people. Don't get me wrong, I can get colour in the summer, but having fair skin means I am totally susceptible to burns, skin care issues, and all the woes. I am all about protecting my skin. We can't just make more of it, and damage is usually irreversible. To combat the rays and to protect against UV damage there are a few products I rely on in these months. Let's break it down:

Facial Care

NATURAL
When it comes to my face, I like to go natural. Laspa Naturals makes a great mineral moisturizer for sensitive skin with SPF 30. A little goes a seriously long way, so apply sparingly! I love it because it's 100% natural-- made only from plant-based ingredients, minerals, and essential oils. No chemicals at all! And it's hypoallergenic, and water/sweat resistant. I've done the run test in this one, and it withstands!

P.S. you can get LaSpa products at beautysense.ca and save 10% using code: GABPAC

ANTI-SHINE
Another game changer. The Vichy Ideal Soleil Dry Touch is extremely light which makes it perfect for the face. It even mattifies! So you do not look oily whatsoever. When an Olympian champion swimmer uses it on the reg, you know something is working. I love that it is SPF 60 and can be suitable for all skin types.

DOUBLE DUTY
Looking to up your daily moisturizer. Olay Luminous Whips is the perfect light and airy moisturizer that has SPF 25 to make sure you're covered.
Pro tip-- add a drop of Dermablend Flawless Creator Multi-Use Liquid Pigments to create a tinted cream! I love doing this when I'm short on time or don't want to wear heavy foundation.

Body

NATURAL
Laspa also makes another natural body sunscreen I have been loving. It's SPF 20 and moisturizes the body as well. It's mineral based so the zinc oxide works immediately to absorb into the skin (no waiting 20 minutes before sun exposure), and no chemicals!

ALL OVER
My on-the-go go-to? Pixi Sun Mist. I literally leave this in my purse. It's so compact and I mist myself all day with it. Especially when I'm driving with the windows down! Or before a walk on my lunch break. All you do is shake and spray. It's great for when you don't want to get your hands all covered in product. I spray on my face as well. The bamboo and chamomile extracts are so soothing and not irritating.


FAKE IT
I may be an advocate for UV protection but that doesn't mean I can't still indulge in a little bronzing! I have been relying on St. Tropez self-tanning Face Mist and Bronzing Water Moose to get the job done, and loving it! I can't be the only one who just feels fabulous when that have a little bronzer glow going on! I love how St.Tropez has the mist that makes it so easy to apply! Yes, I am still sure I go light on the elbows, knees, and ankles, just in case!

Am I missing any of your faves?! Let me know!
