How to get rid of (and prevent new) dark spots

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that mineral sunscreen is the way to go. It’s the safest for humans and reefs! We also know that a lot of mineral sunscreens are sticky & leave a residue on your skin, making them more annoying than effective. No thanks.

Lucky for you, I’ve rounded up a few favorites that work AND aren’t sticky and annoying. They glide on and blend right in!

FACE SUNSCREENS:

Beautycounter  

Overall highlight: No white residue!

  • Dew skin: spf 20, light tinted moisturizer. It’s silky smooth and gives a tiny bit of coverage. Wear this daily for your sheer no-makeup-makeup with hidden spf (this is my go-to).
  • Countersun Daily Sheer Defense (face sunscreen): great for a more active day. SPF 25. Glides on under makeup and no white residue! 
  • Sun Stick – on the go perfection. No residue, blends into skin. Highly recommend. SPF 30

Juice Beauty

  • It’s been a while since I’ve used this one – I like the Beautycounter ones so I’ve stuck with those. But I loved this when I used it a few years ago! It smells great. It’s a little thicker to apply than the Beautycounter dew skin, but still comfortable and goes on lightweight. Highly recommend. 

BODY SUNSCREENS

Both brands are great for kids too!

Supergoop 

  • My personal fav for body. I use the play spray and the unseen sunscreen. The unseen is very unique. When you put it on you don’t feel it… it’s so soft and definitely my favorite. I hate when you can feel your sunscreen on even after you shower, and this one doesn’t do that! 

Countersun Mineral Sunscreen 

  • Fan favorite, not my favorite. Blends into your skin, doesn’t hold sand, protects from the sun, lots of options (lotion bottle, spray bottle, tan sunscreen). 

SUN (DAMAGE) HELPER

Okay – now about that miracle worker I mentioned – adios dark spots. 

All Bright C Serum — packed with two types of vitamin c and turmeric  — protects your skin against environmental stressors and helps to get rid of dark spots

It’s a non-negotiable in both mine & my mom’s routine. Spoiler alert I’m 29 and my mom is over 70 and she can still rock a bikini. 

Want more details about this one?? Read this blog I wrote about it!

Comment or email me which ones you try and let me know! I love hearing from you 🙂
