My Favorite Sunscreen...For Every Occasion

Did you know May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month? With beach/pool season around the corner it seems fitting to bring awareness to such a relevant topic. Sunscreen is a must all year 'round but when the weather dials up a notch it's essential to get your hands on effective protection. 

One of my favorite skin care lines also happens to carry one of my favorite sunscreens: Skinceuticals

The brand has an assortment of SPF treats that don't feel greasy and minimize that trademark "whitening" effect commonly found in other sunscreens. Many cosmetics and skin creams incorporate SPF's these days, but Skinceuticals believes in separating the two elements because combined SPF products reduce the effectiveness of sun protection. With that philosophy they do their best to provide a sunscreen for every skin need. 

The Skinceuticals sunscreen products include: 

-Physical UV Defense SPF 30 (great for sensitive skin and post-treatment patients)

-Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 (great for use under daily makeup)

-Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 (ideal for high-altitude climates and use on all skin types)

-Sport UV Defense SPF 45 (ideal for use during high-energy exercise)

-Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 (silky formula with a mattifying texture)

-Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 (contains a sheer filmless tint that adapts to all skin tones) 

I love their Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. The sheer, tinted formula is great to use under makeup.  

In honor of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month Skinceuticals is teaming up with the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA). The brand is also spreading the word on their Facebook page by asking users to post videos or written testimonials on how Melanoma has affected them or someone they know. 

For the month of May, Skinceuticals will donate $20 to the MRA for every video uploaded and $2 for every post. The five most inspirational videos each day will also receive a free full-size Physical Fusion UV Defense.

Follow the brand on Facebook for details, after following me, of course!
