Summer Skin Protection

Good Day Lovilies,

We are about halfway through the summer at this point. One thing I think is really important pertaining to the summer is protecting our skin from the sun. I am a huge skin care junkie; yes, I admit it. The skin is our largest organ and we have to take care of it. We always hear, take care of your skin when you are young or you will regret it later. I live by this motto.

Today I will be sharing with you the sunscreens I use on a daily basis, as well as when I am spending the day outside. 

Daily Lotion: In the summer I opt for a lotion with SPF, such as Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15. Just to give me a light layer of protection in my daily activities. I started using this lotion for the first time this summer and I actually like it a lot. In the past couple of years I would used the Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Spray. After my shower and before my lotion I would spray this all over, then apply lotion, if you want to see all the products I use check out this post. I find using Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 alone now, which is much easier, just a one stop shop. I still use the Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Spray, but on top of the Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15, for extra protection.  

Face moisturizer: In the summer I increase the SPF for my face, just in case. I wear an SPF year round on my face but in the summer when the sun is closer to the earth, I like to take extra precautions to protect my skin. I have been using the Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer in SPF 50. I have been using this for about 2 years now, and I always go back to it especially in the summer.

(Bonus)Fashion: When you know you are going to be outside, remember to wear your sunglasses to protect your eyes and don’t forget your hat. Hats are so chic, especially when you wear a cute summer dress! I have a lot of examples on my Pinterest!

Review: Neutogena Healthy Defense Moisturiser

Neutogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer is a face moisturizer that is made with sunblock to protect the skin from damage caused by the sun. The packaging states that this product should be used once a day (clearly in the morning) after washing, cleansing, and toning. It should be applied with your fingertips, blending well all over the face. It can be worn alone or under foundation.

Neutogena is a skin care brand that I find amazing, I’ve used this brand off and on since I started a skin care regiment. Huge fan! Try the makeup wipes, ultra gentle daily cleanser, fresh foaming cleanser, makeup remover, and sunblock!

The package says it provides protection from skin aging effects of the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. It keeps skin hydrated all day. This innovative formula contains Helioplex® Technology that helps protect from the harmful UVB-burning rays and UVA-aging rays which can cause premature lines and wrinkles. This daily moisturizer has an exclusive anti-oxidant blend with pure Vitamin E, which helps prevent environmental damage. Lightweight, non-greasy, it’s powerful protection and hydration you can rely on all day, every day.

There are a few things I like about this product which made me want to do this post. When applying this moisturizer, it acts like a primer, leaving a moisturizing layer on the skin. The layer of moisture gives makeup something to stick to, plus it has SPF. I also like the affordability, it can be found it at any drugstore, which is amazing because I can grab it on the go and not have to make a stop to the mall for a face moisturizer.

One thing I don’t like about this product is that it only comes in this small size. A small size is great when you are traveling but when me and Frank are using the same product it goes much more faster then when I used it on my own.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. I am finishing up my third bottle and already purchased my fourth. Last summer I had skin issues and went to the dermatologist. The doctor recommend this product which sold me on how amazing this product is.

If you have any question about this product feel free to leave a comment and I will answer, but you should just buy it, because it is amazing.
