Sun Damage, How To Prevent It.

As warmer weather approaches, its time for fun in the sun!  I don’t know about you but I love a good jog in the early morning followed by an afternoon at the beach or maybe lunch outside at my favorite café. Whatever it would be you obviously want to be cute wearing those tank tops, sleeveless dresses and showing off some legs *wink*, Of course, there is one thing we should all be mindful of…The sun.

 

Sun damage to your skin can put you further at risk of cancer. Besides that dreaded C word, it can also cause other damaging problems such as abnormal discoloration and wrinkling. We did our research and here are some great and fashionable ways to help prevent sun damaged during this spring and summer:

Ways to prevent it:

Sunblock is a must! I try to keep it at 30SPF or higher and use daily! Also, try to use a moisturizer for your face with SPF, saves a trip for going to the store twice.

ChapStick- Not only will your lips thank you, you can also get a huge variety of flavors and types; anything from normal Chap Stick to lip balms and glosses.

Sunglasses- keep your eyes happy and also helps protect the skin around your eyes against UV rays.

Hats! Great for covering your head. This can help with your scalp and also help cover your face to prevent skin damage.

Use an Umbrella! UV is strongest between 10-4. Why not bring it out in the sun.

   We definitely love this vintage look from the 70's and it's coming back! Modernize the look by blending it throughout the entire eyelid. This a great look for both night and day. 

 We recommend: Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette, $62.00 (it is alittle pricy, but worth every cent!)

2. Flushed Cheeks

     I don't know about you, but adding a little color to my complexion is always good. Whether it is adding to your look for an evening out, or just a nude look during the day, it definitely will complete your look.

3. The Cat Eye

      This is an all-time favorite of ours! It definitely never goes out in style. These days, this oldie but goodie is rocking it with a sharp angle look at the end of the eyelid. It's sexy and sassy.

Our recommendation to get this look: MAC Liquid Last Eyeliner, $21

4. Metallic blue shadows

      I love adding a little risk to my makeup (especially when I'm out for good night of dancing), which is why I definitely recommend metallic blue shades. 

Our recommendation: Prismatic Eyeshadow, at Ulta.com for $5.99

This is a great option for those spring and summer evenings. It adds a little shine to your look for that spring fling date or a night out with the girls.
