Are you ready for the summer sun? I love going poolside or to the beach during the summer. But I am so sensitive to the sun so I have to make sure I don't get burned. I also have to make sure I don't break out. Sometimes sunscreens can irritate my skin. Couple that will sun and sweat and I have a break out ready to happen. So what to do?
I have been lucky enough to find some great products that I have tested over the years. These do not make me break out and help give me all the sun protection I need. I have put in my favorite sun protection products below - sunscreens, hats, coverups and bathing suits so you can stay safe from the sun's rays and stay free of any irritation or break outs. This face sun screen (also below) is one I use everyday - not just for beach days. It helps prevent breakouts and was recommended by my amazing dermatologist Dr. Petersen from Suzanne Bruce and Associates. Just click on the links below to be taken directly to the products.

Here is to staying safe in the sun!

The men in my life...my hubs and my dad. They are the best men in the world as far as I am concerned. And it's about to be dad's day this month so I thought I would share a few of my favorite man-approved "beauty" finds. I could not put that in the title for fear all men would run away but there are some really great personal care products out there for men that I have loved giving to my hubs and dad. These picks are the few that made it through the gauntlet of their approvals.
If you think this personal care products may not be for your men, I did a little research that I thought was fascinating. In 1960, men's personal care products started flying off the shelves after the first televised presidential debate between Nixon and Kennedy. Kennedy looked youthful, strong and powerful. Nixon looked pasty and ill. The response from a lot of men - I want to look vibrant and confident. How do I do that? Now, forty-three percent of American men use skincare products that go way beyond shaving: we're talking moisturizers, anti-aging creams, eye gels, luxury facial cleansers, and concealers (statistic courtesy of www.racked.com). I will confess some of these products I have stolen too every once in a while. Just because it does not say "will give you shiny, lustrous lips" but rather "menaji lip agent" trust me it does the job of moisturizing your lips and giving you sun protection.
Also I will tell you my secret to getting things to the hubs was this site - they sent boxes each month to him tailored with products for his specific needs. We bought several products he still uses today because of this subscription.
