Since Memorial Day was the unofficial kickoff of summer, I thought I’d give you the low down on a few of my favorite summer products! If you’re anything like me you’ll be spending a fair amount of time in the sun this summer and you want to protect and preserve your skin.  Both of these products are fantastic and I plan on stocking up so I don’t ruin my summer by running out.

The first is a spray sunscreen. I’ve used several in the past and they’ve either made me feel super greasy like I’m wearing tanning oil or have a thick white paste that’s messy and annoying to rub in. Over the weekend I grabbed a bottle of Banana Boat’s sport spray sunscreen. It went on light and kept me perfectly protected from the sun all day. Bonus? It had a fresh scent that my friend Kim said she’d even wear as a fragrance.

This next product is one I’ve been using for a few years. It’s a wonderful after sun serum that I absolutely swear by. I shared my love for this with an esthetician recently and she also gave it high praises.  One ingredient in it is Japanese Alder which helps to correct sun damage to each individual cell and keeps it from spreading and creating life long pigmentation. Thanks to Dermalogica, I’ve gone to bed with a sunburn and woken up with a golden glow.

Always remember to protect your skin by wearing sunscreen everyday, not just beach days!
