Sun Daze

Winter Summer is coming. Here in Texas it’s already hit 90 a few times and I’ve got to restock my Sun Screen regime. I’ve got fair skin, as in during the winter you can see my veins and I might as well be a vampire from Twilight. I burn like popcorn in the microwave when you accidentally push 6 minutes not 3.

I wear sunscreen year around. I wear sunscreen on my face and body all year long. But I know there are some people who only wear it during the summer however I would recommend (and so would the Doctors and Dermatologists of America) that you wear it every day. For those of you that are new to the sunscreen game or are stocking back up for summer I’ve got a few of my favorites rounded up for you to choose from.



With color: Neutrogena, Clinique, BareMinerals, Laura Mercier

Without color: Tarte, Bliss, Neutrogena, Clinique

Eye cream & Lip Coverage

These are only sunscreen products for your face but I’d recommend Supergoop or Neutrogena for your body when you’re going to be out in the sun a lot that day. Their spray products are amazing and their prices are diverse for your budget. For every day I use Eucerin Everyday 15 SPF lotion. It’s amazing.

Also a little tip, when you put your daily sunscreen on your face put the excess on the backs of your hands. Trust me, when you’re 80 you’ll thank me.

And just so you don’t think I’m pulling these recommendations out of a place where I don’t put sunscreen, my dermatologist is very impressed with my sunscreen game. I believe the direct quote was “I wish all my patients used sunscreen like you do.” Boom!
