Best sunscreens for summer 2020

best sunscreen for face

It’s that time of year again! Temperatures are rising, and we are all starting to head outside a lot; especially this year with so many indoor activities cancelled due to the current pandemic!

When we are outside, it is really important to protect our skin. Sunscreen is a great way to protect ourselves from the harsh UV rays outside. It is important to use sunscreen on our face, lips, hands, and body. I have a few favorite sunscreens which target each of these areas. Without further ado, here are my favorite sunscreens for summer 2020:

What’s new in my spring beauty bag

spring beauty essentials

What’s new in my spring beauty bag from top left: Perricone MD hand cream / Elemis eye revive mask / Estee Lauder sunscreen spf 45 / Elemis Marine Cream / Estee Lauder Rapid Brightening Treatment Ferment 2 + Vitamin C / Elemis cleansing balm / Elemis Cica Calm cleansing foam / Elemis Cica Calm Hydration Juice / (all products shown c/o of their respective brands)

Spring has sprung! This means it is time to mix up our skin care routines in order to ensure our skin stays moisturized, healthy, and squeaky clean! After all, the pollen is everywhere, and it sticks to our skin. A nightmare for people like me who have spring allergies. Yikes!

The products above are my new lines of defense against spring’s increased sun, wind, and pollen floating in the air. I have been using the Elemis Marine Creams during the warmer months for years. It’s the perfect cream for dry days, and warm days. I love how it keeps my skin even and healthy. The Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro multi-defense UV protection is perfect to wear underneath the cream for the ultimate SPF protection. Love it!

If you like to swim a lot like I do, the Elemis Cica Calm Hydration Juice is ideal for restoring hydration to your skin. It’s also perfect for windy spring days when it feels like all the pollen on earth is blowing in your face and sticking to you! Ugh!

If you are washing your hands often now due to the current shelter-in-place and virus prevention measures, check out my post about my three favorite hands creams; it includes the Perricone MD hand cream shown above.

While these products were sent to me in PR packages for testing out, they are products I actually use. This is only roughly 20% of the products I received to review for spring. They are brands I also purchase with my own money, and the Elemis Marine Cream I have purchased on my own in the past. I would never recommend something to you just because it was sent to me. I only recommend products I actually use and love. These products are all amazing, I highly recommend them for spring skin care! A few will also stick with me for the summer season such as the Elemis Marine Cream, and the Estee Lauder products.

Which one of these products have your tried and loved?

Nighttime skin care routine from left: all products c/o Estee Lauder: Intense Reset Concentrate / Revitalizing Supreme + Night / Advanced Night Repair /

I wasn’t very nice to my skin over the summer. I was out in the sun a lot, and my skin really took a beating. Plus, when I was traveling, I didn’t stick to my skin care routine; which caused chaos on my skin. It’s time to repair, reset, and revitalize my skin for the fall season.

As you know, I am a huge fan of Estee Lauder. Her skin care is out of this world. For my nighttime skin care routine, I am using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair in order to repair the damage I have done to my skin. The Estee Lauder Intense Reset Concentrate is perfect for resetting my skin to where it should be. Lastly, this night cream is a-ma-zing! In order to revitalize my skin, I am using Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + Night cream. It is fabulous! It really leaves my skin moisturized and feeling good! Love!

My daytime skin care routine is still the same-for now. I will keep you posted on how I update that as the weather starts to change. As for nighttime, I am already doing my fall routine because my skin needs it now! If you are looking to repair, reset, and revitalize your skin, definitely check out Estee Lauder’s Night Repair system. It is pure perfection.
