I believe skincare starts with skin and sun protection. I will admit, it took me about 25 years to finally accept that SPF is an everyday "must", just like a moisturizer. So, I'm really happy to see that there is more awareness around this issue and some brands are doing an amazing job of creating quality formulas.
Amavara Skincare is my current personal favorite. This brand is all about better skincare with highest quality ingredients and environmentally safe products likethis SPF 30 lotion I'm showing below. There's none of that artificial colors or parabens in this bottle, which is a BIG yes for me! Definitely check out amavara.com for more amazing sunscreen products.

SUN PROTECTION TIPS
1. You should wear sunscreen daily, no matter your location — indoors or outdoors.
2. For everyday, sunscreen should be applied to the face, as well as other areas that are exposed to sun.
3. The magic SPF number is 30 or something with higher protection.
4. Choose mineral sunscreens over chemical ones. Dermatologist agree that mineral sunscreen is the best option for sun protection.
5. Protect your lips, too. Choose a lip balm with SPF.
If you have any top tips or products that you love, hop over to Instagram and tell me! :) I'm still learning about skincare and properly protecting from sun and other factors that affect our skin. Hope to share more as I learn!
With love, Hande xx
