Here Comes The Sun

June 24, 2010
Ladies, it’s officially summer time.  I’m a huge supporter of sunscreen year round (I’ll give my lecture on that another time), but if you are only starting to think about it now that the weather is warming up, here are some ideas for products that can be worn alone or under makeup.  With cutting-edge ingredients, you’ll be fighting damage from the sun while also improving your skin in the process.  Fabulous!


Kate Somerville Protect SPF 55 Serum

Now, it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of Kate Somerville and her amazing skin care products.  And this sunscreen is no exception.  This mild, antioxidant-rich sunscreen is free of oils, parabens and alcohol making it oh-so-good for your skin.  It offers high-level protection against skin-burning UVB radiation and premature aging UVA rays. The delicate formula is non-greasy, not sticky and quick drying so it’s perfect for layering over moisturizer (but before that makeup!).  Kate suggests waiting 20 minutes before sun exposure.    


Bobbi Brown Brightening SPF 50 Face Base

This soothing lotion helps shield your skin from the harmful effects of the sun with a high level of broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Lightweight and quick-absorbing, it can be layered over moisturizer to help prevent future damage and help maintain a radiant, brightened, and even skin tone.


Kinerase Daily Defense Lotion SPF 30



This next one is a real beauty splurge.  Kinerase Lotion with SPF 30 protects your skin while providing superior moisturization, improving skin tone and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—gently and effectively. What’s not to love?!?
