Have your skin survive summer!!! The easy 'to do' to keep your skin beautiful!

With summer right around the corner and the weather getting better each day remember how important it is to put your skin first!!!

Skin is our largest most prominent organ and the one we show off every day so keep it beautiful!

UV levels can wreak havoc and really damage skin and cause skin cancer (1 in 5 Americans will develop some form of skin cancer... ick scary!)

So what to do!
1) Block harmful rays when out in the sun and even on cloudy days (UV still penetrates)
2) Use sunscreens at least SPF 15! The best kind? It really depends on you but it is better to use a higher SPF. Make sure its water resistant and put it on 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. For my face I love Clinques Face cream SPF 50 sunscreen. It doesn't clog pores and it is absorbed immediately. It also protects against UVA and UVB (some only shield against UVB). For body I love La Roche-Posay's Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 60 which also comes in a lighter form for oil/combination skin. 
3) Wear a hat! Your scalp can burn too (OUCH!)
4) Lip balm is a must!!! 
5) Sunglasses, need I say more? 

Most importantly... knowing your skin is the best advice to make sure your ready for the summer! Keep moisturizing and protecting skin from the sun. 

My beauty secret for summer that keeps me looking tan (without going in the sun... I use (and love) Tantilizer products by LORAC... they  keep your looking tan and amazing and wash off (yes no embarrassing streaks from self tanners!)
