Happy Friday everyone! Summer is my favorite time of the year and I love to be outside enjoying the weather and the sun as much as possible. It just makes me feel happier when it’s sunny out. I can remember the days not too long ago where I would spend hours at the pool in search of that perfect summer tan. However, the last few years, I’ve started to see the signs of aging that the sun contributed to and I’ve started to take better care of my skin. I’d like to share some of my current Summer Skin Care Tips with you today and I’d love to hear any that you have for me.
Summer Skin Care Tips
I am not a hat person but my MRTT visor (Headsweats) has really grown on me and I am trying to wear it more often on my runs.
A must to protect your eyes from the sun and from flying debris on my bike.
Annual visits to the Derm
I am now going to my dermatologist at least once a year for a full mole check and for her to
yell at me remind me to be more vigilant about wearing sunscreen. I’ve had a few “pre cancerous” spots frozen off the last 2 years and it has made me very nervous. Also where did all of these age spots on my hands come from???
I am embarrassed to admit that up until this summer, I really have not been good about wearing sunscreen to run or bike. Sunscreen always made my face feel sticky and I didn’t like how it dripped when I sweat. Last year, I found SuperGoop brand products and absolutely love them. They even have a great lip sunscreen that is perfect. All of their products also come in travel sizes so that’s a plus. You can find them all on Amazon (affiliate link).
When I am not running or biking outside, I am wearing tinted BB cream. I especially like Bobbi Brown and it has an SPF of 35 built in. It’s very natural looking with a tint of color.
I know that I can be and should be more vigilant about my summer skin care but I believe I am off to a great start. How about you?
