It’s hard to enjoy summer without the sun! Unfortunately, as the sun continues to get stronger, we need to make sure we’re taking extra precautions to protect ourselves from it. I’m really happy to be teaming up with Teen Cancer America to help promote their Stay Safe In The Sun campaign this year!
Being safe in the sun is one of the easiest things to forget during the Summer months, but Skin Cancer is also one of the easiest things to prevent. Click here to see a few of the great tips TCA has shared, and continue reading to see how I like to stay safe …and stylish, in the sun! 🙂
1 – Use a moisturizer with an SPF. Whether you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors or not, those rays can still reach you in your car or through your windows! Incorporate a daily moisturizer with built-in SPF into your beauty routine. It’s an easy change to make + a simple way protect your face.

2 – Sunscreen! This seems like a no brainer, but applying sunscreen is a step that’s often skipped by many. Growing up, putting on sunscreen was called “gooping up” LOL. Personally, I like to “goop up” at least 20 minutes before I even step outside. It gives the lotion time to absorb and activate. Once I’m out, I reapply every couple of hours throughout the day as necessary.

3 – Stay hydrated! Sadly, the sun can harm us in ways that aren’t skin-related. For our bodies to operate properly, they need water…and when we’re outside sweating, we’re losing a lot of that necessary H2O! To avoid dehydrating, upping our water intake is a must!

4 – Protect your face. The older I get, the more the fine lines + wrinkles seem magically appear on my face! In addition to using a daily moisturizer with an SPF, my sunglasses are clutch anytime I’m outdoors [I have a serious wrinkle-inducing squinting problem]. To further protect my face + sometimes shoulders, a hat is one of my favorite go-to accessories. Wide brims are so fun, but a baseball cap does the trick too. 🙂

5 – LIPS! Our lips are one of the most overlooked areas of the face when it comes to sun protection! I was recently introduced to beFree, an all-natural skincare line based out of Florida that was created with sun safety as it’s #1 priority! Their creamy lip balms are made with non toxic ingredients + non toxic preservatives…all of which help to prevent multiple types of cancer.
beFree’s sunscreen has yet to go through the FDA approval process, but will be for sale soon! As of now, in addition to their lip balms, they sell hydrating lotions created with natural, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable ingredients that are safe for most sensitive skin types …and the environment.

Alright that’s enough safety…let’s get onto the STYLE portion! 😉
You guys, I think I’m officially a one piece bathing suit lover! Growing up, I was all about the one piece, come high school, I became a two piece fan, and now I’m back on the onsie train! I love them specifically for pool parties or beach days when you’re going to be around lot of people. For me, it’s just nice to be covered up — I find myself more confident + less concerned about my body in a more conservative suit. After picking up a new one piece this year, I was surprised by how flattering + comfortable it actually was!
I picked this suit up in Italy over the winter, but it is available online! For those who aren’t fans of strapless suits, it does comes with detachable halter neck straps. 🙂 Click here to order!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Thank you all for reading + be sure to share this information with friends or family members so we can help Teen Cancer America in their effort to spread the message about sun safety this year! 🙂
