I’m always on the lookout for the best summer skin care products for both protection and bronzing. For those of you getting a jump start on your Memorial Day weekend glow, here are my top must-have skin products for beach season.
Hampton Sun Care—Every summer these luxury sun-tanning products are first on my list before I hit the beach. I use the Smart Serious Sunbathing (SPF 55) along with the Super Hydrating Face Cream (SPF15) to keep my tan and avoid burning. The non-greasy mist and cooling aloe vera of the Hampton Sun product line is definitely worth the price.
Neutrogena Beach Defense—For a sunscreen option you can find at any drug store, I recommend the ‘water and sun’ barrier spray by Neutrogena. I am constantly reapplying, but for those forgetful bathing beauties, this product can protect for hours.
Loreal Sublime Bronze—For a little pre-beach glow, I am obsessed with Skin Palette spray tanning in Rittenhouse Square. But for when I don’t have time for the professionals, I go for the Sublime Bronze Towelettes and Airbrush from Loreal. These will give you a healthy glow, but be careful when applying…no one likes a streaky fake tan. I use the medium natural tan version.
Vaseline Spray & Go—I’m absolutely addicted to this new product from Vaseline! It’s so quick, smells great and best of all really moisturizes. Plus, it’s only about $8! I use the ‘Coco Radiant’ but the spray lotion also comes in an aloe and pure oat scent.
**Honorable mention** Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen—The best sunscreen for the boys! My husband, Nigel, is a huge fan of the ‘Cool Zone’ version of this quick spray sun protector. He always manages to get a nice bronze!
So, kick-back, relax, bronze and make sure to #DOAC this summer!
