It’s finally summer and even if the majority of us are staying at home now,  we still need to protect our skin from the sun.

Currently using Thank You Farmer Sun Project Light Sun Essence SPF50+
Is a lightweight, broad-spectrum sunscreen that doesn’t feel sticky or leave a white cast on skin.  The formula offers a semi-matte finish that makes skin look glowy, not greasy, after application.
It is important to wear sunscreen all year-round, but now more than ever.  Sunscreen will help us protect our skin not only from the UVA/UVB, but also from blue light exposure from the electronic devices. In addition it will prevent and protect you from skin cancer, short and long-term skin damage.  

Some ways of preventing damage are:

Using SPF 30+ recommended by dermatologists
Staying inside or in the shade during peak hours 10am to 3pm
Apply sunscreen fifteen (15) minutes before going outside and consider reapplying every two (2) hours
If sweating or swimming, apply afterwards




Refresh your skin-care or beauty routine by adding a sunscreen.  Nowadays you can find a variety of products that can be easily added to your routine.  Many of these products will do more than protect your skin, and you can adjust them to complement the needs of your beauty routine. Which is ideal if you like to keep it simple! For example:  Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 can double up as a primer, It Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ not only has full coverage but it also has a hydrating anti-aging serum or the Milani Make it Last Sunscreen setting spray  SPF 30 for when you need your makeup to stay flawless and in place.

Remember that for an all day sun protection you should re apply throughout the day.  Every two hours is the recommended frequency.  An ideal product for this would be a sheer face mist like the Ultra Sheer Face Mist Sunscreen SPF 55 from Neutrogena. 

FYI
SPF stands for Sun protection factor, indicating protection against the ultraviolet B (UVB) rays that cause sunburn.
UVA is an abbreviation for ‘ultraviolet A-rays’.
UVB Radation that is in the region of the ultraviolet spectrum which extends from about 280 to 320 no in wavelength and that is primarily responsible for sunburn, aging of the skin, and the development of skin cancer.

During the pandemic many of us are unable to see our loved ones, which will make it difficult to celebrate with our mothers this year.  

Whether your mother is an essential worker, is working from home, is homeschooling or is currently unemployed, this is a good opportunity to help them beautify and pamper themselves so that they are always ready for work, family or friends calls.  

Check out some beauty products she will love:

Mini Spa
Turn her home into a mini-spa by giving her self-care products.  
Masks are always a good way to relax and scented candles will bring serenity.  Let's add some hair clips to keep her hair away from the face while masking or putting it in a bun while hair masking.

Ya sea que estés enfocada en tu carrera o quieras manejar mejor tu tiempo, una agenda nunca viene mal, es más, podrías volverte adicta a ella.
Una buena agenda nos ayudará a enfocarnos en nuestras metas, carrera y bienestar propio.  Si organizamos bien nuestras actividades, tendremos tiempo para todo.

Personalmente , no puedo salir sin mi agenda ya que puedo hacer apuntes de ideas o metas, verificar mi progreso y disponibilidad. 

Cuando anotas lo que quieres lograr durante la semana, puedes monitorear tu progreso y al final del mes verás tus logros.  Además, cuando plasmamos eso que realmente anhelamos, nos sentimos comprometidos con nosotros mismo.

Recuerda, no todo debe de ser trabajo, añade momentos de “self-care” para relajarnos, recargar y continuar con nuestros propósitos.  

¿Enfocada pero no has encontrado la agenda perfecta?
