why Chuda skincare is a cult favorite. I have been using Chuda’s Sheer Hydrating lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF30. All Chuda products use The Remedea Compound. Its origins date back to Princess Medea of Colchis, who crafted medicinal healing elixirs made from potent botanicals and herbs. “The compound is composed of indigenous ingredients that grow atop Georgia’s breathtaking Caucasian mountain range in untouched, mineral-rich soil. Its exact formulation is a guarded family secret, passed down from generation to generation, and never revealed to any outsider.” The moisturizer is designed to help damaged skin heal faster and look healthier, softer, smoother,and more radiant. Chuda also protects and restores skin’s natural barrier to protect from environmental aggressors. I find the Sheer Hydrating Lotion to be slightly heavier than other moisturizers with SPF. This is great for those who’s skin dry out from the sun. So join the Chuda cult, at least your face will be hydrated this summer, can’t say the same for your liver….

Start with your products. I love mineral Sunscreen, and Cotz is a brand with a great product line. Cotz is gentle for all skin types, and will not irritate or sting sensitive skin. It is 100% free of chemicals, oils, and fragrances.The minerals “sit invisibly on top of skin and function like thousands of mirrors to deflect harmful UVA-UVB rays before the rays can touch the skin” My favorites are the spf 45 Lip Balm and the lightly tinted Cotz Face for natural skin tones spf 40. So make better choices in 2017, skincare, and dating life….

Bare Republic Group Shot

Republic! Bare Republic mineral Sunscreen is a must for this Summer. They use no chemical actives, no synthetic fragrances, and no parabens. It is sold exclusively at Target.  Bare Republic uses Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide with plant derived antioxidants to nourish and protect from UVA and UVB rays. I also love their Milk and Honey daily recovery serum. It is made with active grade manuka honey and calming oat milk, with a natural antioxidant blend that includes turmeric, carrot oil, meadowfoam, calendula, hemp seed oil, and melon extract. This moisturizes and repairs what the sun and environment do to your skin. So get Bare, and go Bare….

tatcha poreless silken spf

Just because summer is winding down, does not mean you should stop protecting your skin. For your face try Tatcha’s Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen. It is inspired by the iconic white makeup of the geisha, which protects the skin from the sun, and creates a poreless, porcelain finish. It offers broad spectrum(UVA &UVB) protection, SPF 35, and features Japanese Wild Rose to shrink and tighten pores (not just blurring or filling them!).

mustela spf

if you don’t protect yourself. I have been using Mustela’s SPF 50+ Broad Spectrum Mineral Sunscreen Lotion.  It is 100% minerals and provides UVA / UVB broad spectrum protection. It uses naturally derived sunscreen filters like titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide, as well as being praben free, phthalatae free, phenoxyethanol-free, fragrance-free, PABA-free and hypoallergenic. It’s water and sweat resistant. I like to follow-up post sun with the After Sun Spray. It is a refreshing and moisturizing lotion to hydrate following sun exposure. So have fun but be safe, in all areas….;)

your face this summer.  You need your moisturizer to protect you from the sun. I am loving Exuviance’s Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50. It is a mineral based cream that offers uva/uvb protection plus it’s rated PA++++ (the strongest defense against UVA rays). It is extremely lightweight and is quickly absorbed. It has a hint of complexion evening color and dries matte. It has multi antioxidants that neutralize environmental damage, and green tea extract to protect cellular DNA. If you’re looking for less sunscreen and no tint – I recommend Neostrata Daytime Protection Cream SPF 23. It uses PHA/Bionic complex to preserve collagen while defending against UV damage and harmful free radicals. It is lightweight, and fights aging. So get summer ready, for your summer fling…

neostrata

With Summer around the corner, it’s time to get serious about sun protection. I find it odd that most day creams don’t have spf in them. I have been using NeoStrata Restore Daytime Protection Cream SPF 23. Not only will it protect you from the sun, it also aides in fighting the signs of agin. It smoothes skin, while preserving collagen and firmness. It is lightweight yet effective. So protect yourself while outside, and inside, ;)….
