It’s finally here! Spring – and with it comes warmer temperatures and for many of you, spring break! Treat your skin with care and protect it from the damaging rays of the sun with some of the newest and best products on the market today.
I know as a kid I hated it when I had to put on sunscreen – that thick white lotion took forever to skin into my skin and I wanted to get back into the water or the sun. Kids today have so many new and wonderful options that won’t put them on the sidelines for long.
These Hello Kitty sunscreen sprays are perfect for kids. They offer 30 or 50 SPF and come in fun scents like Pineapple and Kiwi – no kid will be able to resist. Even wiggle worms will be covered in no time with a few sprays that work on both dry and wet skin.
Your pretty face needs protection, but please don’t slather body sunscreens on it. Use something specifically for the face, like La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 30. It’s a cooling water-lotion that will protect and refresh skin without clogging pores or causing breakouts. Because let’s face it, a breakout is never wanted! I love this because it melts into skin almost immediately, leaving no residue behind.
A Little Bronzing
Unless you’ve been tanning all winter (and really, is that good for your skin?) your legs might be a little pasty for spring break. No worries. Australian Gold offers sunscreen (15-30SPF) with bronzer to protect and add a hint of color so you won’t blind everyone when you step out into the sun for the first time this year. Bonus: It smells great, too.
Mistakes happen. Did you get a little too much sun? Even if skin just feels tight and itchy, Alba Bontanica’s Very Emollient After Sun Lotion will soothe, hydrate and replenish skin. Made from 85% aloe vera and no parabens, phthalates or synthetic fragrances, you can feel good about putting this on anyone in the family.
