seasonal musts | sun block

And we're back!

Whether or not you live in the desert, you should always protect yourself from the sun. Wearing sunscreen daily is the best defence against premature aging and cancer - but you already knew that, right?

Moisturizer, tinted moisturizer or foundation/primer with an SPF is the easiest way to cover your face. 

A quick-absorbing lotion with a touch of SPF kills two birds with one stone.

You may not think about it, but protecting your hair against harmful rays is just as important as shielding your skin, especially if you color your hair. I just picked this up at Sephora, and although it says it's formulated for curly hair, it works fine on all hair types. {Aveda also makes a nice sunscreen for hair, but I have yet to try it out.}

Since I spend a lot of time doing outdoor activities {I just picked up a new one! Details - and photos - coming soon}, this is a must.

If you're going to be out in the sun, be it at the beach or out on a hike, the easiest way to apply - and reapply - is by using a spray-on sunscreen. And applying a sunscreen that is specially designed for your face won't clog your pores and cause breakouts.

Out and About
I found these sunscreen wipes in travel size at Nordstrom and full size at Sephora. Toss these in your handbag or car to always have sun protection on the go. The best part : it won't leak or burn you if left in a hot car for an afternoon in the desert.
