Sun of a Beach

With Summer just over the horizon, the weather is getting hotter & the temperature is rising. Soon everyone will be heading out to spend time under the sun. But before you hit the beach, you might want to prevent the burn. In honor of National Sunscreen Day today's article features ways to shade your skin with some of the best SPF products. SPF, also known as Sun Protection Factor,  measures a sunscreen's protection from UVA & UVB (ultra violet) rays. UV rays  can cause serious damage to your skin and can also age it prematurely. It's important to wear sunscreen according to the UV index, not just when it appears to be sunny outside. Sunscreen mixes organic and inorganic chemicals that filter these rays so it doesn't reach the deepest layers of your skin. Read on to see some great multitasking products that'll help you battle the blaze.

This blush from Perricone MD gives you a nice hint of color while preventing you from getting the bad kind of color.

Combat both UVA and UVB rays with this multitasking miracle cream. With a mix of five active ingredients- Zinc Oxide (reflects rays), Bisabolol (soothes skin), Alpha Arbutin (evens out your skintone), FAB Antioxidant Booster (gets rid of damage), and Homeostatine (prevents and reduces wrinkles)- protecting your skin will be a breeze.

The skin of your lips is just as important as the rest of your skin! Because they don't have any sebaceous glands (which keep you skin moisturized) it's up to you to make sure they are quenched. Picking a lip product with natural oils and sunscreen is the best way to go. This lip treatment from Fresh helps any skin type and adds a nice coral tint, perfect for Summer.
