My Summer Style Guide- How to Stay Safe
I know what you are thinking, it’s sweltering out and you’ve got a long sleeve shirt on? I get this a lot, people asking me why on some of the hottest days of the year I am still wearing a cardi. Well the answer is simple, Sun Protection. I have what you call alabaster skin, or what hubster calls ghostly (charming, eh?). I do put on sun screen everyday too and try to re apply at multiple times during the day but sometimes it’s just not enough. Especially now they are saying that you need higher and higher SPF because the amount you are actually putting on only equals to half the SPF on the bottle. I wear SPF 100 everyday, so I have an SPF coverage of 50. But my skin is so sensitive to the sun; actually in early May at 8 in the morning I went outside to have my coffee and after ten minutes of my bare feet in the sun they burnt so bad they blistered. It’s a real problem for me and I know because of my skin color I am at a high risk for skin cancer. So even though sometimes it’s a little too warm you can still be stylish in long sleeves in the summer and for me it is a necessity. But I hope for all you with less sensitive skin that you are still applying the sun screen!

I hope y’all are enjoying some gorgeous sunshine and staying protected too, but I know you’ll never forget to put on your gorgeous sunnies!
P.S. Does anyone have any sunscreen recommendations? I am always looking for the best and highest protection.
