The Beauty Box
By Vanessa Gulino
Hello My Darling Divas,
Summer is quickly approaching and getting a vibrant glow is on all our minds. Before you put on that form fitting bikini and head to the beach, always always protect your gorgeous, flawless skin with sunscreen.
The sun is stronger than ever and can really damage and age your skin. Unlike when I was growing up and baby oil was the tanning apparatus of choice, we now have become a more health and skin conscious society. Sunscreen these days is a MUST HAVE in our Beauty Box no matter how light or dark your skin may be. This product will protect us from long term skin damage and aging. And let’s face it, who actually wants to look older than they are!
I’m not saying to stay out of the sun because we all need daily pops of Vitamin D. I just want to make sure you take the proper precaution to protect your skin. Use a sunscreen that protects you from UVB & UVA rays to get that natural summer glow you longed for all winter. Dermatologists recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or greater all year round for all skin types.
Here are two of Allure’s top beauty finds for sunscreen products at two different price points.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid
This product is a lightweight mineral sunscreen with a SPF 50 that protects you from UV rays. Its main mineral ingredient and its first line of defense against the sun is titanium dioxide which helps with long-lasting, broad spectrum protection. $32
Aveno Natural Protection Mineral Block SPF 30 Sunblock Lotion
This product provides UVB/UVA protection with its key ingredient kernel extract, which is a great skin soother. This sunscreen is water resistant and can be purchased at your local drug store. $12
Remember Ladies, Gents & Kiddos! Summer ~ check, new swimsuit ~ check, new Beauty Box attitude ~ check…..SUNSCREEN double check. Protect your skin and maintain an ageless and fabulous you.
