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:

There are over 91,000 cases of melanoma diagnosed every year, according to the American Cancer Society. This is a large amount of cases. Although melanoma is treatable by a medical professional, do you really want to end up at that point? There is nothing scarier then finding melanoma on your skin, and wondering how the biopsy will come back! Yikes!
The best way to prevent melanoma, and hopefully never find yourself waiting for biopsy results, or worse; going through chemo to treat it, is to protect yourself now! There are so many ways to prevent melanoma, it makes prevention easy!
Let’s start at the top; our heads. I have owned a San Diego Hat Company hat for fifteen years now; and I love it! Their hats offer UPF protection (the fabric version of SPF) which is a great addition to wearing sunscreen on our skin. Love it! I highly recommend one of their hats! Here are my favorites for summer 2018:
In addition to hats, it is important to wear sunglasses in order to protect your eyes. Look for lenses which block UVA/UVB rays for ultimate protection. This doesn’t prevent melanoma, but it does protect your eyes; might as well protect everything you can!
Even if you aren’t planning on being outside, it is a good practice to wear sunscreen everyday. The sun can touch your skin walking to and from the car, it goes through car windows; and even windows in your home. Always be protected and prepared!
The hot summer months have arrived. With temperatures topping out in the high 90’s around the San Francisco Bay Area this week, it is extremely important to have the right sunscreen on your face. I tested out several sunscreens, and narrowed it down to six fabulous facial sunscreens for summer 2014.
These fabulous facial sunscreens are non-greasy and work well underneath make-up. They block the sun and do not clog pores. Love that! To make things even better, there is a sunscreen on my list within every price range. Love that too!
