Summer Skincare Must Haves as seen on “Afternoon Live” KATU

Summer Skincare Must Haves
I am so excited to be making another appearance on the “Afternoon Live” show on Friday June, 22, 2018 and I will be sharing my Summer Skincare Must Haves so join me on “Afternoon Live” on KATU Portland, Oregon!We all know that sun damage is a leading cause of premature aging so incorporating sun protection into your daily skincare routine is essential and adding a few extra steps during the summer is imperative. Thankfully, SPF has come a long way and there are some really great beauty & skincare products on the market that go beyond just foundation with SPF and help take sun protection to the next level and these are some of my favorites…

This Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 33 by Jan Marini Skin Research is definitely not your everyday sticky, greasy sunscreen.  This sunscreen is more reminiscent of a nice face cream than a sunscreen.
  It provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, it’s hydrating but incredibly lightweight, absorbs quickly and it even helps control oil.  It also wears nicely under makeup, is water resistant up to 80 minutes and contains antioxidants to help fight the effects of free radicals and slow the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It’s by far my favorite sunscreen for the face and I highly recommend it!  It’s amazing 🙂
Ideal for all skin types this Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 33 by Jan Marini Skin Research retails for $51.00 for 2 oz. and you can find it at
More and more makeup companies are offering SPF options and this Perfect Color Blush SPF 21 by Illuminare is a great choice for a blush.  It’s oil free, cream based and formulated with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to block UV rays and with antioxidants to combat environmental pollutants.  There are four color options to choose from… Amalfi Alabaster, Portofino Porcelain, Florentine Fair and Sienna Sun.  The colors are very blendable and buildable so you can customize how intense you want the color to be and you can even mix colors together and create your own personalized color!  My color choice is the Florentine Fair and I only need a little dot on each cheek for a nice, full wash of color that lasts all day long!
  Ideal for all skin types this Perfect Color Blush SPF 21 by Illuminare retails for $18.00 for 0.25 oz and you can find it at
When it comes to Lip Balms with SPF there are actually quite a few out there but the trendy and innovative brand, Coola, offers the best selection.  Their Mineral Liplux® SPF 30 Organic Tinted Lip Balm is made with more than 70% natural ingredients and contains Organic Cupuacu Butter and Mongongo Oil.  Thanks to the Cupuacu Butter and Mongongo Oil these Lip Balms are creamy, deeply hydrating.  With six different color options these tinted lip balms add a subtle hint of color while providing lips with the nourishment and protection they need.  My favorite color is Summer Crush which looks like my natural lip color…only better!
The Mineral Liplux® SPF 30 Organic Tinted Lip Balm retails for $18.00 for 0.15 oz. and can be found at,, Ulta Beauty and more!
For quick and easy SPF this transparent Mineral SPF 30 Brush-On Sun Defense by Mineral Fusion is just what you need.  This is the perfect sunscreen to keep in your handbag for on-the-go application.  It works well on all skin tones and types and it blends seamlessly into skin and over makeup.  For best results, reapply every two hours.
The Mineral SPF 30 Brush-On Sun Defense by Mineral Fusion retails for $24.99 for 0.14 oz. and can be found at, and can even be found at Whole Foods!
This is probably my overall favorite sunscreen product!  This is so much more than sunscreen.  It’s actually a three-in-one weightless mist that sets makeup, helps control oil and shine and provides SPF 50!  The unique formula is water and sweat resistant, leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and will keep makeup in place even in high humidity.  For best results and to keep makeup looking fresh reapply throughout the day.
Suitable for all skin types this Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50 by Supergoop is a vacation must have and retails for $28.00 for 3.4 oz.  It can be found on, and more!
