It’s summer, and that can mean only one thing for my fellow fair-skinned friends: sunburn. Nothing is more excruciating than jumping into the shower after a great day at the beach and realizing after it’s too late that you are bright red. Your skin now feels like it’s being ripped off piece by piece as the usually soothing shower water hits your sensitive, burnt skin. Thankfully, there’s this genius invention called sunscreen that we can utilize to prevent this sun-induced nightmare.
My SPF of choice this summer is La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 30 Cooling Water-Lotion Sunscreen. La Roche-Posay is known for its physician-strength skin care and sun protection formulas, and I can definitely see why the brand has such a great long-standing reputation! From the minute I stepped foot onto the beach until I stepped into my steamy shower, there was no sign of sunburn—success! Before I hit the beach that day, I applied the sunscreen and instantly felt the cooling effect described. I wasn’t left with that white lotion film (not that you’d see it on my fair skin anyway), or oily finish and when I went swimming it didn’t seem to slide off either.
I am a true water baby, and was in and out of the ocean all day. Knowing that my sunscreen is protecting me while I’m enjoying the activities that I love is all the convincing I need to become a Cooling Water-Lotion Sunscreen loyalist. I urge my fair- and tan-skinned friends alike to try this awesome sun protection product. No doubt you’ll fall in love with it just like me!
