I LOVE summer!
Summer is by far my favorite season of the year! The best part about the summer is all the beautiful sunny days, the worst part about summer is sunburn!
Unfortunately for me, most sunscreens usually make my skin break out. It is a catch 22, do I chose to get breakouts or sunburn. Since I have fair skin and work as an oncology nurse, I usually opt to suffer through the breakout while saving my skin from the sun. Thankfully there are all different kinds of makeup that can make you look good while also keeping you safe and healthy while you are in the sun. Fortunately with these products I don’t have to choose between the two. It is so nice to not have to look like a greasey mess with breakouts while protecting myself from the sun’s rays.
Here are a few that I recommend:
ChapStick Ultra, Moisturizing Lip Balm, SPF 30- Trust me from personal experience, you want to prevent your lips from getting sun burned! This lip balm has SPF 30. Reapply often and be glad that you have spared yourself the pain of burnt lips.
Lorac Breakthrough Performance Lipstick- If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time you already know that I am a HUGE fan of Lorac Cosmetics. Here is another awesome reason to love them. This lipstick is not only moisturizing, long wearing, paraben-free, and has Vitamin E and olive fruit oil for anti aging, but it also has SPF of 15. It comes in 5 beautiful shades and right now is on sale for only $10 on the Lorac site.
