Sun Protection 101

With Summer days heating up, we’re being mindful to apply sunscreen daily to our skin. SPF should be a year-round, non negotiable necessity for everyone of every age since protecting your skin (especially your face!) is the best thing you can do to prevent aging, dark spots, and skin cancer. When applied every few hours, an SPF of 30 or higher will block the sun's harsh rays and keep your skin looking its best.

We recommend using a mineral based sunscreen because it will rub in sheer and work immediately when applied, so there’s no waiting to apply the rest of your routine or to go outside. Natural minerals reflect (rather than absorb) UVA & UVB rays to protect your skin from burning and aging. Because the minerals aren’t being absorbed into your skin, they are safe and gentle for even the most sensitive skin types. All natural mineral sunscreens are also safer for the environment and coral reefs. : )
