As the days get longer and the sun gets stronger, you should be thinking more and more about how to best protect your skin from those harsh sun rays. But don’t you worry, Klickpicks has got you covered (pun intended)…
Lets start with the most obvious, sunscreen! According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, you should be using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, reapplying every 2 hours. In order for it to really sink into your skin, make sure its applied at least 20 minutes before you step out into the blistering sun. It is also important to protect those soft lips of yours. So, just like your sunscreen shoot for a balm that also contains an SPF of at least 15. Also, make sure to protect those forgotten about spots such as the tops of your ears, nose, hands, feet, and even your hairline. It is also extremely important to make sure that your sunscreen is fresh, which means you need to buy a new bottle each and every summer.
If sun tanning isn’t your thing, you can also try these two tricks that will give you that “sun-kissed glow” you’re looking for. Start by using a self-tanner. Self-tanning lotions such as St. Tropez self-tan bronzing mouse can be applied over time to produce a natural looking tan. You can also add bronzer such as Hard Candy’s So Baked bronzer to your blush to help bring out those natural sun-kissed shades of your skin. The trick with this option is to start with a light shade so you avoid looking overly made up.
Whether you’re a beach babe or striving to be one, these tips will help you give off those summer vibes you’ve been hoping for.
