Some summer sun protection tips 🌞:
  • Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30, but 50 is best. Anything above that isn’t worth your time, as the amount of extra protection you would get is negligible and the formulas tend to feel unpleasant.
  • Keep these measurements in mind: a nickel for the face, a shot glass for the body. This is the amount of sunscreen you should apply. However, body shapes and sizes differ. In general, applying generously should be fine. 👌
  • Apply sunscreen 15-30 minutes before going outside. Sunscreen needs time to absorb. Also, don’t throw on clothes immediately after application. You don’t want to rub off the sunscreen.
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours of sun exposure. This means that, on an average day spent mostly indoors, you should be fine with one application of sunscreen. If you’re swimming or exercising, reapply more frequently.
  • Yes, even if you’re wearing makeup.💄 This is where powdered and spray sunscreens work best!
  • Avoid sunscreen with oxybenzone or octinoxate! 🙅 These common chemical UV filters are linked to the destruction of coral reefs across the world. Very environmentally unfriendly. 🌎 
  • Wear sunscreen indoors and in the car! UV rays can filter through windows.
  • Nothing elevates a look like a wide-brim hat! 👒
  • Don’t forget to protect the rest of your body! The neck, chest, lips, hair part, hands, and feet often don’t receive the same love as our faces. There’s a reason they say you can tell a woman’s age by her hands and neck!
  • Don’t leave sunscreen in your car during the summer!🔥  It may seem convenient, but the excessive heat disrupts the sunscreen’s efficacy.
  • Wear lightweight layers of clothing. A cute, wispy bathing suit coverup can be the difference between a pleasant and a painful beach day! Layer your sun protection!
  • Don’t rely on makeup alone for UV protection. The amount of makeup you would have to apply to achieve the advertised SPF would have you looking like a clown. 🤡
  • Get a small bottle of sunscreen and keep it in your bag. Alba Botanica makes 4oz bottles that are good for the face and body and fit comfortably in a purse. Perfect for touch-ups.
  • Utilize the shade.🌴 Not only will you keep cool, but you reduce your chance of sunburn. You won’t catch me on the beach without an umbrella!

drchellybeemd  asked:

I am reaching 30, and after using a popular (but terrible) acne cleanser for the last 10 years, I am keen to minimise sun damage and fine lines, while keeping my oily/combination skin clear. This is a lot to ask, and I have been researching myself into a massive hole trying to find skincare that is as natural and not harsh as possible. Do you have any recommendations, drugstore or otherwise??

Hi there!  I absolutely have some recommendations!  Skincare is my #1 passion, so forgive me if I get a bit excited and/or longwinded in my response.  :)

Before I get into actual product recommendations, I want to make sure that you understand your skin’s current situation.  Whenever I hear that someone’s been using the same skincare product for an extended period of time (10 years!? jeesh!) I know that your skin is probably completely different now than how it was when you first started using the product.  As you are in your late 20s, your skin is beginning to phase into an entirely different “wants/needs” category than when you were a teenager!  Specifically when talking about acne - breakouts in your teens are completely different than breakouts in your mid20s-30s. Your hormones have changed, I’m sure you have different environmental stressors, and your skin is officially in the declining stage. You mentioned that you have sun damage and lines that you need to address - so its time to get away from harsh acne products, and start looking at nourishing your skin to create optimum health!

I know that you mentioned cleanser, but I must stress that it is so SO important to develop a genuine skincare routine, especially if you are seeing breakouts, damage, etc.  Cleanser is probably the least effective product to use in order to see results - it is on your skin for a short amount of time, and it’s true purpose is simply to remove impurities, and not so much to replenish the skin with ingredients it needs.  Moisturizer and/or a serum, and SPF, are going to be very important for you.  

Cleansers by nature strip the skin of its natural oils and can throw it off balance.  Often this can cause acne, rough texture, and can accentuate signs of aging.  For this reason, I recommend using a hydrating cleanser, or a cleansing oil (massage onto dry skin and then add water to emulsify and rinse).  These will nourish your skin while removing impurities and balancing you out.  


Simple Skincare Hydrating Cleansing Oil - $9

This cleansing oil melts away dirt and makeup and leaves skin feeling soft and healthy.  Contains no artificial dyes or fragrances and contains just 6 ingredients.


Burt’s Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser - $9

This exfoliating cleanser uses the powerful antioxidants and amino acids found in royal jelly (like honey) to nourish, brighten and prevent aging in your skin.

Your moisturizer is going to be an integral part of your skincare routine.  This is where you find all of the best, most effective ingredients, and they actually have time to absorb into your skin.  Look for lightweight moisturizers with ingredients that will help correct and prevent damage, as well as keep your skin clear.


Origins GinZing Moisturizer - $28

This is one of my favorite skincare products of all time.  Origins will be a GREAT brand of skincare for you to look at, because they’re very natural, super effective, and genuinely feel good and are fun to use.  This will help repair sun damage, prevent lines, minimize your pores, brighten your skin, and make you look amazing.

Sunscreen is not very glamorous, but it’s probably the most important part of everyone’s skincare regimen.  Especially for you!  Sunscreen is the best anti-aging and preventative product you could possibly use.  If you’re skeptical, I highly encourage you to check out the extensive articles I’ve written here.


Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder - $12

This is a convenient, natural method for applying SPF that serves a dual purpose - it sets makeup and makes your skin look airbrushed!  Just be sure to reapply every few hours.


Burt’s Bees Chemical-Free Sunscreen - $7

This more traditional form of sunscreen is entirely mineral based and nourishes the skin while you wear it.

I know this is a lot of information to absorb, but I hope that it’s helpful to you!!  It’s so important to care for your skin.  Good luck!

a #tip 4 extra sensitive skin hoes: if u cant find an spf that doesnt break u out or cause you a flare up; get one thats meant specifically for babies. They also often have an spf 50 and no ingredients that would harm your skin. But i wouldnt reccomend this if youve got dark skin, these sunscreens are always mineral and leave a noticeable white cast. if you have access to more skincare brands i would also reccomend jack black oil free spf (doesnt leave a white cast as far as i know, and no harmful ingredients) or the biore aqua one. Japanese sunscreens are always a hit.

“Jensen!” your shriek rang through the house, “Stop!”

“Never!” he said and grinned maliciously, his fingers digging into your sides.

You were panting for breath, Jensen’s tickling taking more out of you.

“Mercy!” you called out, “Please!”

Jensen laughed even harder and flopped onto his side next to you, “You deserved it.”

“Jensen Ackles. I am nine months pregnant with two of your spawns. I can do whatever the hell I want,” you said, shoving his shoulder lightly.

“But that was my pie!”

You rolled your eyes, “Two spawns!”
