If you insist on getting a tan this Summer (and if you’re like me you can’t resist having a little St Tropez glow, although I must confess … mine comes from a bottle) – or you spend a lot of time outdoors, make sure you arm yourself with sunscreen that offers high SPF and is loaded with botanical skin goodness. The idea is to look golden and gorgeous – not tanned and taut!
Being a time-pressured girl who believes in ultimate convenience, the path of least resistance, and for whom multi-taskers are akin to water and oxygen in the list of life essentials, I’m happy to report I’m newly addicted to Soleo Organic Sunscreen – mainly for two reasons. It doesn’t smell of anything (no nasty clash with your expensive perfume). Plus it’s microfine zinc oxide based with absolutely no chemicals and tons of organic butters, oils, and plant extracts for ultra skin hydration. Protection and moisture in one … love it!
Zinc oxide is one of the safest, most effective sunscreens ever. Period. Its ability to reflect both UVA & UVB rays is critical to avoiding sun damage but until now, it’s been almost impossible to find one containing zinc that doesn’t leave you looking like you’ve never seen the sun in your life. As for the alternatives, if you don’t mind what you use, you love smelling like a pina colada and avoiding chemical sunscreens isn’t high on your agenda, there’s always Hawaiian Tropic. But for those of you who do care, here are some options: Kimberly Sayer SPF25 Family Sunblock, Solar RX, Soleo Organic SPF30 Sunscreen.
