When I was a teenager and first began my skin care journey, I started by trying out Aveeno skincare. I was obsessed with their cleansers and loved how gentle their products were on my skin. Fast forward 10+ years and I am still a huge fan of Aveeno products.
While summer is my favourite time of year, it’s also a tricky time skin care wise. We are all so attached to the idea of getting a golden summer bronze that sometimes we forget how important caring for our skin truly is. A few months ago, I shared 6 ways to protect your skin from the sun and today I am sharing a bit more on that. So, if you want to keep your skin healthy and sunburn free then be sure to continue scrolling through.
With Vancouver’s recent heat wave, I’ve been stocking up on sunscreen – most specifically my Aveeno Active Naturals Sensitive Skin SPF 50 sunscreen. I have sensitive skin and I often find products with SPF are especially hard on my skin and that’s why I use Aveeno’s Active Naturals Sensitive Skin SPF 50 sunscreen that is specially formulated for those with sensitive skin.
Along with their Aveeno Active Naturals Sensitive Skin SPF 50, Aveeno also sent me their Baby Sunscreen SPF 50. While I do not have children, many of my friends do and the number 1 thing they stress about during the summertime are sunburns. The brutal truth is that a single severe sunburn during childhood can double one’s risk of developing melanoma, and so it’s so important to protect their skin and teach them the importance of using sunscreen.
Both of these sunscreens are dermatologist recommended as they are non-irritating, hypoallergenic, and water resistant for up to 80 minutes. They are also free of parabens, phthalates, dyes, and fragrances.
While these sunscreens are super thick and creamy in texture, once they are blended out they don’t feel greasy. They also dry clearly so you don’t have to worry about any obvious sunscreen streaks. Most importantly though the Aveeno Active Naturals Sensitive Skin SPF 50 sunscreen and Baby Sunscreen SPF 50 are both formulated with naturally sourced zinc oxide and plus Active Naturals Oat which locks in moisture while protecting skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Each bottle costs approximately $15.99 – $19.99 CAD / 88 mL and you can grab your own at Rexall locations. It may seem expensive, but if you’ve ever had a bad reaction to a sunscreen then you know that sometimes it’s worth it to splurge on a higher quality sunscreen that will protect your skin without leaving it irritated.
