May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, a time to detect, prevent, and protect your skin as much as possible! It’s a great time to think about the state of your skin and how to take care of it going forward, as May kicks off the warmer, more carefree weather. With outdoor activities and fun can come increased sun exposure, and this week in NYC already saw temperatures in the mid 80s. By now stores are fully stocked with SPF offerings, which means its a great time to find your go-tos and have them at-the-ready for the warmer days ahead. I’ve found that I feel most comfortable using sunscreen with more natural formulations, and am more inclined to use them when the bottle easily fits into my handbag, or is a spray that quickly canvases legs and backs with protection.
As an ultra-pale and freckly human, I’ve tested out a lot of sunscreen, and by a lot, I actually mean a TON of the stuff! Some of my favorites for the 2015 summer season include Block Island Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, Kiss My Face Cool Sport Mineral SPF 30 Lotion Continuous Spray Sunscreen, Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Lotion Suncreen for the Face, and MyChelle SunShield Coconut SPF 28. Do you have a natural sunscreen that you love?
