Santa Barbara Sun Protection Tips

Summer in Santa Barbara means beautiful weather and outdoor fun. The best way to protect your skin from the sun’s destructive UV rays, fines lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and other signs of aging is by keeping it undercover. Here are our favorite tips and products to keep your skin safe this season:

Top it off. Keep your face and scalp protected this summer with a cute hat. Wide brimmed or floppy hats are perfect for a park picnic. Or take your protection to the beach with a stylish panama topper to keep you looking chic in the shade.

Smear on the sunscreen! It may seem like old news, but applying sunscreen liberally and often can help protect your face and body from sun damage. We recommend the Glytone® Screen Suncreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 40. This sunscreen is easily absorbed into the skin, with a lightweight and oil-free texture. As a bonus it contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize and brighten skin.

Multi-task Your Protection.  We understand that life is busy and you can forget to apply sunscreen. That’s why using a product like Colorescience® Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brushes leaves no room for forgetfulness. The brushes do double duty as a makeup and a sunscreen in one. The self-dispensing powder is easy to use for flawless coverage.
