Summer has come to an end here in California, however the heat didn’t seem to get the memo. For the past couple of weeks we have had the hottest days of the summer and I am not feeling it. I can not deal with heat, I haaaaate it. Aside from putting me in a bad mood, one of the reasons I despise the summer is because of my sensitive skin. The sun has such a horrible effect on my skin because of a condition called sun allergy. Basically, I get really red itchy bumps along my hands, arms, anywhere I’m exposed to the direct sun for too long and it stays like that for days-even weeks. I didn’t even know this was a thing until I started getting the bumps after a few times I was in the sun with out sunscreen. Ironically, I played soccer most of my life but during my soccer days I wouldn’t always wear sunscreen. Even though I knew I should of been wearing it, I could never find a sunscreen that wouldn’t leave a heavy white cast. Fast forward to post soccer days, and after a few failed attempts at various sunscreens, I have finally found one that I really love and is affordable.
I have been using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Sunscreen on my face but as well on my body, especially my arms, chest, shoulders. Usually sunscreens are thick and leave you greasy and yucky feeling by the end of the day, so much so that you can’t wait to hop into the shower to wash it all off. However, this is not the case with the Hydro Boost Sunscreen. Even after working out in the sun or going on a brisk walk with my daughter I never have that lingering gross “sunscreen” feeling. As well, it pairs amazingly with foundations which is almost impossible with regular sunscreens. To sum up the this sunscreen the best way is by saying… it feels like a refreshing light weight moisturizer. I can not recommend this sunscreen enough, definitely give it a try especially during these last few hot days of summer.
