Happy Summer! You are Wearing Sunscreen, Right?

It is officially Summer. I am so excited that it is finally here. Except for the hotter than hot and humid days, I mostly love the Summer.

While outside enjoying the Summer fun, you must be sure to do one extra thing. Wear sunscreen.  You are wearing sunscreen. Right? Every day? Not just on your face, I am talking on your whole body. Not only does it help prevent skin cancer, it protects you from the rays that make you look older, faster. If that is not reason enough, than I don't know what is. 

Sun and Sunscreen tips: 

  • Use a sunscreen that is factor 15 or over for adequate protection from UV.
  • Reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
  • Go into the shade between 12 noon and 3pm, as this is when the sun is at it's most damaging.
  • Don't binge tan (sunbathing for intense periods). A tan will build up gradually through normal sun exposure.
  • Don't intentionally try to get burnt - a lot of young people believe that burning = tanning. But sunburn is not necessary for your skin to get a tan.
Look for a bunch of sunscreen and self-tanner recommendations coming up soon, right here art Beautiful Makeup Search.

Shu Uemura 25th Boutique Birthday.

Late to the game as always, I never tried anything from Shu Uemura until late last year. I cannot fathom how I have not lived with some of his beauties, especially because he opened his first boutique back in 1983. Yes, 25 years ago.

In those 25 years, each year Shu Uemura has created a limited edition Boutique Birthday collection. This years collection, which is also the 2008 Summer collection, is absolutely 100% gorgeous - in true Shu tradition. The core values of nature, science and art come to life in this collection. Three 100% natural origin fragrances that are formulated with Despea Water, as well as some beautiful makeup products that are packaged in the designs of Tokyo-based artist Gwenael Nicolas are the highlights.

Look at these gorgeous eyeshadow palettes! $65 each, they are a bit on the expensive side, but just looking at the collectible palettes and the gorgeous shadows they contain make me want them nonetheless. My pick is the Fleur de Source palette with it's bevy of blue shades.

25TH BTB LIMITED EDITION, FLEUR DE ROSE PALETTE

Which palette would you like on your vanity? 

The Eau de Toilette's sound just as divine. There are three of these as well, in the same names: Fleur de Rose, Fleur de Source and Fleur de Terre.
