First time I have ever said that! Sun is no longer my friend and wanted to share this with you. You probably wonder why, well let me tell you that after dealing with my father’s melanoma, the type of cancer that is made in a mole in time, after too much sun exposure without protection, I’ve never seen the sun like something good.
Only because it wasn’t really a thing in the past in our family to use sunscreen creams, I’ve suffered and lost my dad in the worst possibly way. This was the cruelest way to get my eyes open and keep my skin bright and white. Don’t be ashamed of it and of anyone telling you that you look too pale in the summer, if you feel a little out of the ordinary, you always have the option to get a spay fake tan, that looks great!
Anyway, since I’m no longer a fan of sunbathing, I tend to keep in my cabinet some moisturizers with sunscreen, and during the hot season always keep in my purse a cream for my face and arms, to block all UV rays. Some of them are really great products, but some of them aren’t, even if you would think that by paying a lot of money on them.
Here are some of the best sunscreen creams that you should keep in mind and purse!
LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS MINERAL TINTED ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID SPF 50
The fluid is very light and you can use it in your face and body without feeling it heavy. Great coverage for a sun cream, and it’s great because it’s SPF 50.
SKINCEUTICALS SPORT UV DEFENSE SPF 50
This is great because is resistant in any situation, water, sand, sport and shopping! Yes during a hot day, you need extra care with the cream you are wearing if you feel like going out! This formula is great because it’s without any kind of parabens and it is fortified with a marine plankton derivative used to energize skin cells.

The Austrian brand is known best in Europe for their great products, that vary from sunscreen creams, oils, lotions, all for face and body for summer time and also…winter time! Yes in winter too, when you are on the slopes, you must protect your skin from the sun, especially where the snow directly reflects the uv rays.
