chic sun protection

May 27, 2012



Whether you’re planning to hit the beach this summer or just have a simple backyard “stay-cation” in mind, sun protection is a must! And you don’t have to compromise style to save your skin from those harmful rays…

Tinted Sunscreens for Face & Body
To avoid the unsightly white mask effect of many higher spf sunscreens, several companies have launched very flattering (and effective) tinted versions of your favorite sunblocks. We adore SkinCeuticals’ Physical Fusion SPF 50, which provides ample protection while giving our skin an even finish and a subtle glow from head to toe

Foundations with SPF
Many of our favorite foundations are now available with spf! Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with spf 20 gives us a glamour girl finish (think J. Lo’s ultra sexy glow) while saving our skin from future sun damage. Hourglass’ Illusion Tinted Moisturizers provide spf 15 with the added bonus of their Instalift Technology and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres for fewer fine lines and even skin tone. Both offer a fabulous win-win for sexy skin!

You’ve likely been told a thousand times: Wear a hat. The key is to find one that makes you feel more like a beach starlet than a beach bum. We love Helen Kaminski’s collection of sophisticated shapes and textures that never go out of style. And to protect back, arms and shoulders, Eberjey’s selection of light and airy ponchos will beautifully accessorize your sexy summer look!

Get a Sexy Faux 
No Oompa Loompas allowed! Self-tanning technology has come a long way in the past few years. Many formulas now come in a broader variety of tonal options and utilize instant bronzers to show where product has already been applied. We are obsessed with Natura Bisse’s new Cure Sheer Touch for fair complexions, and Xen Tan’s Ultra Dark Lotion for deeper skin tones.
