I recently got to spend a week in Cancun. It was the best week of my life!
It was beautiful and warm. The nature was stunning and the resort I stayed at was so much fun.
But, with a trip tropical paradise…
…Comes a TON of sun exposure.
As someone who comes from a German/Irish back ground, I turn in to a lobster after ten minutes in the sun. Even if you don’t burn easily SPF is still very important!
Here is my family on the last day of our trip! Do you notice the lack of sun burn!?
On my part, that is thanks to two awesome Supergoop Products.
Supergoop Super Power Sunscreen Mousse starting at $19
The mousse is easy to apply and blends in much quicker than the traditional cream Sunscreen. It also lacks the Sunscreen fragrance, any allergens, or irritating ingredients. This is really important to me because I have very sensitive skin and eczema over a lot of my body. I try hard to avoid irritating my skin, especially when so much of my skin is exposed. For once in my life I didn’t completely burn my body! I don’t think I will be able to function with out this Sunscreen, it is a must have in my book.
Supergoop Invincible Setting Powder $30
This is a great way to layer SPF while wearing makeup. It comes in multiple shades, is sweat resistant, 100% mineral, and has a retractable brush. Supergoop even sells refill powders for $20. The power does set Makeup very well. I even baked with it a few times! My only gripe is how high up the powder dispenser is, so be careful when using the retractable brush on your face.
Obviously I did get burnt some on my first few days. To the point I got pretty sick. I was fine by my third day there though! But, to help me heal while sore I found two AMAZING after sun care products.
Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Gelé $17
When sun burnt and over heated, putting cold aloe on your body feels like heaven! My favorite Aloe Vera is this one from Desert Harvest! It is 100% natural, certified organic, contains no parabens, and is of course cruelty free! It is also safe to use to soothe the vaginal area and as a personal lubricant. For some reason vaginal care/use products are some thing I have a hard time finding all natural alternatives for. Little tip: this aloe works awesome on chaffed thighs as well!
Definitely a product I will be ordering as soon as I start to run low. All of you should order it as soon as you are finished reading this post. I promise you will thank me!
BioRepublic Aloe Rescue Sheet Mask $7.49 for 3
You would be perfectly fine using the Desert Harvest Aloe on your face, I just brought these along because I needed to use them. I ended up loving them! Siting on the balcony with one of these Sheet masks on my face was SO relaxing and soothing, especially after it was in the refrigerator for a while.
Thank you so much for reading💜
