4th of July is just around the corner, Ladies and Gentlemen! And for many of you, that means fun in the sun. Whether you are slapping some hot dogs or [veggie] burgers on the grill, splashing around in the pool, or laying out at the beach, it is incredibly important that you keep your skin protected from those harmful UV Rays!
Eminence Organics has shared some of their favorite sun care products and tips with us, and we want to share them with you!
HAVE FUN IN THE SUN: SAFELY, OF COURSE!
Eminence Organics has a number of SPF-infused face creams that will work perfectly and effectively in your everyday skin care regime. Try out their Persimmon & Cantaloupe Day Cream SPF 32 for all-day ultra-nourishing sun protection.
The rule of thumb is to apply about 1 oz. of sunscreen, which is a shot glass full, to cover the body. Try Eminence Organics’ Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen SPF 32 for sweet-smelling protection with a hint of Tahitian vanilla. This delectable sun care product is a favorite of Hollywood starlet, Jessica Biel!
Many sunscreens are heavy and may leave a greasy residue on your skin. This can lead to clogged pores, which is never desirable! Select a product that is specifically “Non-Comedogenic”, which means it doesn’t cause blackheads or congestion. A perfect Eminence Organics’ Non-Comedogenic favorite is their Sun Defense Minerals SPF 30. This hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic mineral sunscreen is perfect for people with oily skin, and those living in humid climates. Of course, for those of you that simply don’t like the sticky feeling of conventional sunscreens, this product will be perfect for you as well!
It is incredibly important that you reapply your sunscreen every 3 to 4 hours, or more frequently if you are in and out of the water or sweating! Sunscreen doesn’t last forever—you need to keep up the good work to protect your skin from painful sunburns. On the off chance that you do catch too much sun, try Eminence Organics’ Aloe Mint Hydrating Cream Gel to soothe and cool your overheated skin.
That’s right! Eating lycopene-rich red, yellow, and orange fruits and veggies can help to protect against sunburn! So eat up and enjoy!
Have a Fabulous, Sun Burn-Free, Fourth of July!
