BEACH ESSENTIALS! 2500 2500 Madison Charles

As most of you know, we are currently vacationing in Hawaii! It is so nice to be back here. The last time we were here was for our wedding two years ago so it’s almost like a second honeymoon! Obviously we are spending a lot of time at the beach which means tons and tons of sunscreen. If you missed my video on why I am so obsessed with sunscreen I will post it below.

I have decided to stay away from chemical sunscreens. With the research I have done, I feel like they do more harm than good. The problem with non chemical sunscreens is that they turn you white!! Small price to pay I guess for protection from harmful rays as well as pre mature aging. Because of the “white” factor and the consistency, I use 3 different types.

To start, I use Biossance on my face. I love the line and it never breaks me out. It’s non comedogenic, non greasy and spf 45. Once Its rubbed in, the white blends in nicely but I will always add some bronzer just in case.

The second one I use is Elta Md Spf 47. I love it because it’s for the face and body and has a high spf. I use it mainly on my neck, chest and shoulders. It’s free from anything harmful like chemicals, fragrance, gluten and oils. I love this stuff!

Lastly,, I bring this pacifica spf 30 spray because its easier to spray all over the body and then blend. It’s also Phthalate-free, Sulfate-free, formaldehyde donor-free, formaldehyde-free, nonylphenol ethoxylate free, butylparaben-free, paraben-free, mineral-based, propylparaben-free so it’s pretty safe. I love this stuff.

Then of course I always have a big floppy hat to protect my face from the sun as well as some adorable espadrilles.

Do you wear sunscreen everyday? If so, whats your favorite one?
