Top 3 Sunscreen Recommendations for Summer!

An important but sometimes forgotten part of a skincare routine is sunscreen. With summer almost at our heels, it's time to vamp up our skincare rituals with some well-needed sunscreen. To avoid unwanted sunburns, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and to block out the harmful UV rays, Love Aiki has pooled together three sunscreen brands to consider this summer. These products are natural,  and sure to be a hit with our L.A. consumers. Read below to find out Love Aiki's top 3 recommendations.  

1. SUNTEGRITY

Suntegirity is a mineral sun care brand started by Tricia Trimble in response to her mother's battle with skin cancer. Suntegrity SPF sunscreens use non-nano size zinc oxide, potent antioxidants, and amino acids that aid in skin repair and protection. They use non-toxic ingredients while providing one of the broadest  UVA and UVB protection. One of its most highly-rated products is its 5 in 1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen, Tinted SPF 30 ($45).
 

The 5 in 1 Face sunscreen is a BB cream that "renews, hydrates, protects, primes and covers the skin." It comes in a variety of tints from Fair to Medium. It has a non-greasy formula which is great when you are on the go. It is also cruelty-free, vegan, and reef friendly. Not only that, this product won #1 Rating in the EWG's 2013-2018 Sunscreen Guides. Although Suntegrity tends to be on the higher end of sun care, it lives up to its price with its quality formula and sustainability.
 

2. COOLA

Coola is a California-based skincare company that specializes in providing sunscreen that consists of organic, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients. On top of this, the company incorporates plant-based ingredients, which allow them to cut back on ingredients that are potentially irritating to the skin as well as harmful to the environment. One of the company's most popular items is its Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops Organic Sunscreen SPF 30 ($46). This product is vegan, reef friendly, and made of mostly organic ingredients. The formula is sheer and breathable, allowing you to use it wherever you go.
 
 

3. SUPERGOOP

Supergoop is a skincare company dedicated to spreading awareness about the necessity of sunscreen as an essential step in skin care and skin cancer prevention. This company boasts about its lightweight formula that both protects and lasts throughout the day with regular reapplication. Unlike regular store bought sunscreen, Supergroup's sunscreen is not tacky or heavy on the skin. The company's most recommended products are its Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50.
 
Supergoop is one of the more affordable sun care options. Its Everyday Sunscreen starts at $10 for 1fl.oz to $48 for 18fl.oz. of sun protection. Everyday Sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that is great for everyone, including kids. It features natural ingredients like sunflower and rosemary extract that leave your skin moisturized and well protected for outside activities.
These are just a few options Love Aiki believes can help you to protect your skin, while thoroughly enjoying summer!
