CONNECT WITH DANIELLE
I’m a wife and momma on the daily and bouquets of flowers from Trader Joes are my love language. I'm a wanna be cooking show host. You can probably find me watching Bravo TV with an iced coffee in hand. I'm a big fan of brunch with the girls and ice cream dates with my guys. I love encouraging others with words .

I grew up spending summer days at the pool, lounging in my chair soaking up those rays—often times with no sunscreen on. I believed the myth that because I didn’t burn very often and my skin tone wasn’t pale, I didn’t need sunscreen. But, what I didn’t realize is how much damage I was really doing. If I could go back in time, I’d be applying sunscreen every few hours and making sure my face was covered with a hat and extra sunscreen!
Of course, as a teenager, I knew I could get burned, but I didn’t realize how much of an impact it would have on my skin in the future. More recently, I’ve really become aware of just how important it is to wear sunscreen everyday.
But, all sunscreens are not created equally! Here are 3 scary facts about sunscreen:
Mineral sunscreen is safer for you and the oceans, protects against UVB, UVA and Blue Light—yes, our phones, tablets and computers emit blue light that can contribute to early aging. Just another reason to take a social media detox! My favorite sunscreen that offers all of the safer ingredients is of course from Beauty Counter!
They come in a normal lotion style, a spray on mist, and a stick version which I love for Hudson—it’s not easy putting sunscreen on a wiggly kiddo, and this makes the job far more enjoyable! For everyday use, I love something like this Dew Tint Moisturizing Coverage with SPF 20 on it’s own or under our Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation.
It’s another small step, but it makes such a big difference! I’ve noticed that I get less dark spots and discoloration which means I can wear less makeup! If you already have those spots, order this Everyday Facial Oil ASAP!
