Currently Coveting

Only recently have I begun to appreciate my incredibly fair skin. The threats of sun exposure are no joke, and neither are the effects I have already seen on peers in their early 20s (thanks, Facebook!). According to Glamour, in the past few decades, the diagnosis of melanoma has increased 800% among women 18 to 39. Although I’m opposed to tanning beds and laying out, daily application of sunscreen is a necessity, even in addition to makeup/moisturizers that tout their SPF. Unlike most facial sunscreens, Estée Lauder’s DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant & UV Defense SPF 50 doesn’t have its tell tale scent or oily finish, and is virtually undetectable. In addition to your face, apply a shot glass’s worth of sunscreen to your entire body, reapplying every forty minutes.
