We all need to sit in the sun. Vitamin D is crucial for our overall health, and I can tell you firsthand that a bit of sun exposure makes me noticeably happier.
But a few too many sunburns can kill. And I don't just mean that in an "ow-my-skin-is-on-fire" kind of kill.
As someone who can't stand slapping on thick, greasy, stinky cream on a humid and sweaty day, I am extremely picky when it comes to sunscreen. So here are 4 lightweight favourites that have kept me out of the red zone this entire summer. (See the ones from 2014 linked here)
Tarteguard SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion ($12, travel size)This new and popular cream claims to be "non-chemical" with added skincare benefits. It includes ingredients like maracuja oil, vitamin e, red algae, hyaluronic acid, etc. I picked it up in a Sephora haul (watch the video here) and I love keeping it in my travel bag for daily use. The fresh scent, comfortable finish and decent daily protection makes it a top pick for me.
