safe sunscreen + vitamin c serum – it’s summer and I LOVE the sunshine. I live to be outside in the summer. I used to lay out for hours in high school and college but since having kids I’m much more careful about which hours we’re out in the harsh rays and I definitely take more seriously wearing sunscreen.
I hardly wore sunscreen back in my ‘tan’ days lol but as I’m getting older and embracing my skin the way it is (pale lol, I still love a good tan though) I’m realizing it’s SO important to take care of your skin and treat it right!
let’s chat more about the benefits of safe sunscreen + vitamin c serum .. here are the products I’ve been enjoying and using this summer –
these products are must haves if you love glowing, sun protected skin! in the summer I rarely wear a full face of makeup and I can feel confident sharing my bare face when I’m wearing these!

vitamin c is actually really good for your skin, but it’s important you get the right balance. I love this one because of it’s ultra potent 10% blend of two forms of vitamin c.
this brightening vitamin c serum brightens skin, reduces appearance of age spots and the turmeric and camu camu extracts protect against new age spots too. this formula also protects against environmental stressors – so it’s perfect to wear daily – especially outside. safe for daily use
lightweight formula is perfect to wear under makeup – no chalky white cast. antioxidants protect skin, this sunscreen also keeps skin’s moisture and stays hydrated.
provides protection from UVA, UVB and HEV blue light rays, oxybenzone-free, octinoxate free and is reef friendly too!
these two products are staples in my family’s summer bag and would be perfect for anyone and everyone!
I love using this convenient stick of sunscreen for my kids faces. it’s honestly the easiest thing to rub on my daughters and it goes on fairly clear. it doesn’t goop up and we’ve been out swimming a bunch this summer and it’s worked great!
protects against UVA and UVB rays, glides on with no white residue, cocoa butter – infused and is water resistant for 80 minutes. reef friendly
this award winning lightweight mineral sunscreen lotion absorbs easily, protects against UVA, UVB rays and is gentle on the skin, water resistant for up to 40 minutes. reef friendly
I know it’s hard to think about routines in the summertime, but since we’re outside a lot this is one routine that I know I can’t be lazy about.
protecting my kids’ skin has been a focus of mine since they were babies. I’ve tried choosing the best that I could for them and when I know better, I do better. now that I know how important ingredients are in safe sunscreen I’ll be using these on my kids’ and I for sure for seasons to come!
Beautycounter has done an amazing job with their line of skincare products and I’m so happy about their new vitamin c serum, the All Bright C Serum – it sold out completely in the first month it launched (earlier this spring) and is a product that dermatologists are raving about – vitamin c is the hot topic in the beauty industry.
I hope you enjoyed learning more about which products are my favorite for the sun and summertime! I’ve been loving my summer skincare routine and can certainly see a difference already!
let me know if you have any Beautycounter questions .. I’m open to hosting parties online – and would love to help hook you up with some discounted/free goodies!
