I don't have to tell you how important sun protection is during the summer, right? Even women of color should wear a moisturizer and lip balm with sunscreen daily. And don't forget your hat and shades too.
So if you're looking for a two-for-one benefit in your beauty products, say Yes to Carrots. I'm a big fan of the paraben-free products made with organic ingredients. Plus, they're seriously affordable.
The wholesome brand's latest (available at Target and Walgreens) are infused with zinc oxide, a mineral that provides natural protection against UVA and UVB rays:
Hydrating Body Lotion with SPF-30 ($14.99) is made with organic carrots rich in natural vitamin A and aloe vera.
Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF-15 ($14.99) includes beta carotene-rich organic carrots and pumpkin seed oil.
Pomegranate Lip Butter with SPF-15 ($3.49) will protect your pout with vitamin A-and-E-rich shea butter and aloe vera.
