Afternoon discussion: skin protection in summer

I’ve been in Florida for almost a month and brought a kit of favorite sunscreen products. I like a good dose of Vitamin D and Vitamin Sea every day when I have time for a quick trip to the beach.

Below are my favorite skin care products when I’m outside in the hot sun. This Irish girl always wears a hat but I love these products for added face and body protection.

I found Coola Organic Sunscreen Spray at Ulta this year, they have several scents. Pina Colada smells like a beach vacation, just like the Tropical Coconut scent. They only have SPF 30, so I apply them over Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50. In the afternoon or evening I just love Kopari Body Gel SPF 50, it’s light and gives your skin a really nice glow.

For a light tan, I like to use these self-tanning drops mixed with regular face or body lotion. SunBum Coconut Argan Oil is great for hair, it keeps mine soft and hydrated but not greasy.

IT CC Cream SPF 50 and ILIA Skin Serum SPF 40 are my favorite sources of tinted makeup skin protection. I have some melasma and sun damage on my cheeks and these two keep that minor discoloration from getting worse.

The best face sunscreen I’ve found (and I’ve tried many) is EltaMD Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 with Hyaluronic Acid. I absolutely love this moisturizer and use it twice a day.

Honorable Mention: no sunscreen product, just my favorite face oil. It’s Goopgene’s Super Nutrient Facial Oil, which I can only describe as garden salad for your face. I love the smell and feel on my face and apply it every night before bed. I have a subscription and get a new bottle every two months. I have tried many facial oils and this is still my favorite.

Tell me what are your favorite summer skin protection products?

I’d love to know what you use and why you love it!
