Everyday Suncare & Faux Tan

Suncare is important year round but really something we should all focus on during the Spring and Summer.  It's no secret that I took suncare seriously. Sunscreen has changed a lot in the last few years. There are so many options when it comes to how to protect your skin.  It is not just about lotions anymore. Below are some new types of products to integrate into your routine. 

I'm also sharing how I get a faux tan. Just because we are protecting our skin doesn't mean we can't have a summer glow. 

  1. Sunscreen Oil - If you have ready any of my skincare posts, you'll know I love face oil. Over the past few years it has become my favorite skincare products. I've now switched to using a this sunscreen oil in the morning all over my face and body on any days I'm going to be outside. This formula soaks in and doesn't feel greasy. Once it has soaked in you can apply make up over it with out any issues. It is moisturizing and nourishing and gives a soft glow that I love.

2. Setting Mist -  I know many people are skeptical about whether a setting spray works of not, but I've always been a believer. When you combine one with spf, I'm really in. This product not only keeps your makeup on longer but it applies an even coat of spf 50. It is an especially great travel item.

3. Setting Powder - Another dual purpose item, this product sets make up, applies sunscreen and mattifies your face. It is the perfect product to use as a sunscreen touch up over makeup. It will soak up any oil as well.

Color Science Setting Powder - Supergoop Setting Powder

I've tried my fair share of self tanners and had plenty of bad experiences. Finding a combination of natural color, even application and a great smell is not easy. I've never had as natural of color as St. Tropez and Tan Towels. St. Tropez's foams (here and here) go on smooth and evenly. The foam is colorless and has just a slight but pleasant smell. It gives subtle color that you can build but you will tell a difference after one application. I have recently starting using this tanning mitt and the application has been even easier. 

Tan Towels are single use towels infused with self tanner. Application is easy because you just swipe the towels across your body. Since there aren't any liquids with this product, it's so easy to take on vacations.
