    Everything You Need to Know About Sun Safety

    I feel like a broken record but it would appear some of you (like my fashion blogging buddy – who got a nasty burn this past weekend) don’t seem to understand how important sun safety really is.  I grew up in a world where parents were not cautioned to put sunscreen on their children, but today we know better and when it comes to SPF, you just can’t over do it.

    The first thing you need to remember is that while you should have SPF on your face every day, you especially need a UVA and UVB blocker when out in the sun for extended periods of time. Luckily, Hawaiian Tropic has just released the most awesome sunscreen ever. Shimmer Effect Sunscreen SPF 15 ($9.99) is the ultimate sunscreen for the beauty addict. It protects while hydrating the skin with antioxidants (which fight free radicals and other causes of premature aging) and leaves the skin with a lustrous, shimmering finish. It’s perfect for getting that sexy Victoria’s Secret model look on the beach. And I’m n love with the signature coconut scent.

    If you’re looking for a basic sunscreen, I like Marcelle CLIMATIK Protective Cream SPF 30 ($19.50). This non-greasy formula is perfect if you’re planning on staying outside all day. Just remember, as with all sunscreens, it’s super important to reply ever 1 to 2 hours. There are NO exceptions to this rule, no matter your skin type.

    Although sin cancer is a major concern, you should also be sure to protect your lips from the harmful effects of the sun. I’m in love with this buttery Marcelle CLIMATIK Lip Balm SPF 30 ($6.95). It keeps my lips hydrated, protected and silky smooth. Plus, this easy-to-use tube makes is simple to apply.

    If by some odd chance you choose to ignore all of my good advice (which is the same advice and beauty or health expert will give you) then be sure to invest in some after-sun treatments. While these products cannot undo the permanent damage the sun can cause, they can help soothe a nasty burn. Although, as my personal beauty trick, I use after-sun treatment after tanning even though I’m not burnt. It hydrates the skin and prolongs the tan.

    I am obsessed with the Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect After Sun Moisturizer (9.99) and its divine coconut aroma. It makes my skin very smooth and keeps my tan going. If you don’t want a shimmering finish, I’d recommend Yves Rocher Protectyl Soleil Végétale 3-in-1 After Sun Lotion ($14) for the body and Anti-Wrinkle Sun Care ($18) for the face. They’re both so super nourishing, great for a burn and just plain luxurious.

    Are you all about protecting your skin in the sun or are you guilty of being irresponsible with your skin for the sake of a good tan? (FYI, a tan that develops slowly with SPF, lasts way longer.)

    Get Your Spring Makeup Essentials from Marcelle

    Lip gloss, while it has served me well over the years, is being somewhat pushed aside by good old-fashioned lipstick this season. While this trend has been coming up for a while now, most gloss-loving ladies are reluctant to make the switch for the simple reason that most lipsticks tend to dry out on the lips and feel really uncomfortable. If that’s your main concern, you’re going to be thrilled to hear about Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipstick ($11.95)

    This creamy lip colour is ultra-nourishing and glides on super smoothly. My mom has been wearing the same lipstick since I was a little girl and she’s always told me that she can’t wear anything else because she absolutely hates dry lips and couldn’t find anything else that satisfied her. In 20-something years…the same lipstick! I gave her one of these, and she told me the following day that she absolutely loved how the lip colour hydrated her lips for hours. That’s huge.

    The lip colour is available in 21 shades so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. I recommend trying out this vibrant fuchsia shade, Cleopatra. It’s so hot for spring 2011 and you may be surprised at how many different complexions this colour suits.

    Another recent discovery for me is the Essentials Purity Soothing Cleansing Water Makeup Remover ($14.25). It’s hypo-allergenic and good for all skin types. I like it because unlike oil-based makeup removers, this one is water-based so it doesn’t leave a residue on the skin or make it greasy. After I use it, I find my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I don’t even need to rinse anything off. If you’re going to go for that bright lip colour, this makeup remover will definitely come in handy.
