Makeup Wars: My Favorite Sunscreen.

It is that time of year when sunscreen on the daily is a MUST. While I wear it on my face and neck year round, I will admit I am not so good about using it on my body all day, everyday. I am much better about it in the summer when I do use it everyday. I simply use it in place of daily lotion after I shower in the morning. Easy.

I recently posted about 10 great sunscreens that work really well for me. Out of all of those, I do have a favorite. I used it last summer after I initially received a sample of it, and I just bought two tubes to start of this summer. My favorite sunscreen? L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion.

My favorite sunscreen: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun is a great line of sunscreen products for both face and body and L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun SPF 50+ Lotion is perfect for me. It offers a high SPF of 50 that lasts on me all day for everyday use. Of course, if I am at the beach or pool, I do reapply it every few hours. That is not

12 Best Bronzers to Fake a Tan.

Yay for the long weekend coming up. With Memorial Day upon us and it being the unofficial start to summer, it is time to start thinking bronzers for faking that summer glow. Just a little bit of bronzer can do wonders for warming up your face and bringing a bronzed look to it.

Best Bronzers

Bronzer is really easy to use and the best part is that you can control how much you apply it too. If you want to just look a bit more warm, dust it on your cheeks lightly. If you want to look like the sun kissed your face, apply it with a brush where the sun would hit you - cheekbones, nose, center of forehead and your chin. If you want to look like you have a great tan, dust bronzer on like you would a powder - all over your face.

I have talked about bronzers a lot before. Last summer I even categorized them into my Favorite Drugstore Bronzers and my Favorite Luxury Bronzers. This list of bronzers are either bronzers that I continually use or have just discovered but have already become part of my bronzer rotation. You will notice that some were on my favorites list too. Think of this as my overall favorite bronzer list, updated for 2013.

Top 10 Sunscreens to Protect Your Skin.

Sunscreen is an essential part of my daily routine. It took me a long time to realize that I needed to use sunscreen on my face everyday, and even longer to realize that I need to use it daily on my body too. I may skip it on my body in the winter, but in the summer, it is a must. While I can get away with an SPF 15 on days when I am not spending much time outdoors, I use much higher SPF rated sunscreen when outside or at the pool or beach. It is the best thing I can do to protect myself from the suns harmful, damaging rays. The sun ages skin more than anything else, not to mention that melanoma rates are extremely high. Sunscreen is vital.

I have been testing a lot of sunscreen for summer, and I am the first to admit that I am picky. Out of all of the sunscreen I have tried, I can strongly recommend any of these 10. Here are my favorite top 10 sunscreen to protect skin this summer.

1. L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Lotion - $10.99
This is a hydrating, very sheer formula that feels like I am not even wearing it when I am. It offers a high sun protection factor and is water resistant.

2. SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 50 - $40.00
