    Summer Sun Safety Tips

    SPF Tip 1: Get Physical (Sunscreen)

    Physical sunscreens reflect and absorb the sun's rays before they get to the skin, while chemical ones absorb them at the skin's surface. Learn more about the difference between physical and chemical sunscreen.

    SPF Tip 2: Protect Your Glow

    Mix a quarter size amount of Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion with a dime size amount of Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen for a golden glow with sun protection.

    SPF Tip 3: Embrace Hat Hair

    Double up on your sun protection by pairing your sunscreen with a wide-brimmed hat. Check out this great article from the Skin Cancer Foundation on choosing the right sun protective hat.

    SPF Tip 4: Soft, Sun-protected Lips

    Layer a LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm under your lip color for added sun protection.

    SPF Tip 5: Eat to Beat the Heat

    Did you know that certain foods protect from UV damage? For example, studies have shown tomatoes and red apples help keep skin from turning red.

    SPF Tip 6: Be Safe in the Sky

    Use HandDrink SPF 15 Hand Cream when flying. The sun’s radiation is stronger at higher elevations.

    SPF Tip 7: Reapply Regularly

    Fill your Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush with Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder to reapply your SPF throughout the day.
