Sunny Summer Skin Savers part 1 of 2

Growing up we spent every single day in the sun during the summer. If you’re unfamiliar, Oregon is cloudy and rainy approximately 9-10 months of the year, so when the sun comes out WE RUN to be in it. Or maybe that’s just my family? If my mom had a dollar for every time she drove my friends & I around in the boat on the lake she’d have three vacation homes (all somewhere sunny, obviously).

Also, I’m pretty sure we kept the “No-Ad” sunscreen company in business. We were lathered up head to toe in that stuff anytime it was sunny outside. So for me, sunscreen’s always been a no brainer. It’s like brushing my teeth. Yep, I wear it every day. In the 9 months it rains here, I still expose myself to blue light on the daily. Did you know blue light is damaging to your skin too?!

So to protect ourselves from the screens & the sun, we’re told to wear sunscreen. But did you know that many sunscreens are harmful to you too?! 

Finding one that’s safe, convenient & that you like is kind of a hassle! Unless you’re me and love trying them. My go-to is Beautycounter’s Dew Skin. It’s sheer, so for summer (& most days now that I wear less makeup) I love that it lets my freckles show through while giving just a little coverage and most importantly – it has safe sunscreen!! It’s silky so it also feels amazing.

It’s a simple, effective 2-in-one no-brainer for your morning routine. (3-in-one if you count the hydration it provides too!!).
