Summer Essentials to Beat The Sun

We are definitely in the midst of the summer heat now.  Sure it is fun to go outside or spend a day at the beach soaking up some vitamin C.  Who doesn't love to have a nice bronzed look in the summer? Well, the sun can be fun and all but there are some things you need to do to protect yourself.  Spending time out in the sun can be very dangerous if you don't take the right precaution. While you may think a little sun won't hurt you now, you will end up paying for it later on in life (skin cancer, skin cancer scares, getting moles removed, photo aging, etc.). 

I'm 22 and I still don't know how to put on sunscreen properly. I seem to always get burnt whether it's me forgetting to put sunscreen on or missing spots because I didn't do a thorough job.  Regardless of the excuse, sunburn is never a good thing. Today I'm sharing with y'all some tips and tricks to avoid getting burnt and some of my essentials to help protect your skin from the sun this summer. 
These are some of the products I like to use to protect my skin from the sun.

Remember to be safe in the sun!

  11. Great tips as summer is in full swing! I also use foundation with SPF and put extra on! Also don't forget to put it on your ears! Sounds weird but I got a bad burn on my ears once and now I'll never forget.

  23. I have naturally dark skin so I don't have to worry about getting sunburned as much as my friends, but I make sure I put on sunscreen! Thanks for sharing all of these great products! I usually stick the basics, but I definitely need to get better about skincare when it comes to the sun.
