Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Unlike my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face, you won’t… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Favorite Sunscreens for the Face – 2017 Edition

Alla Nazimova

I wear sunscreen every day. I reapply it if I’m out in the sun. I’ll go out without makeup or without a bra before I go out without sunscreen.

I’ve been wearing sunscreen every day since I was 13 years old. This was a rarity for someone in my age range that grew up in the Deep Tanning Bed South.

I don’t want to be one of those boring people that complain about the weather, but I’m going to be one of those boring people. The weather in March was so frustrating. We had an icestorm. The disgusting, tar-soaked ice piles lingered for weeks. It was cold and disgusting. All I wanted was spring and it couldn’t be found.

This was OK, because I needed to focus on finals. I wrapped up another term. Like weather, I know people get sick of hearing this too: Time flies… Continue reading | 4 Comments

EauMG’s February 2017 Favorites

West Village flowers

February is that month that flies by but I never complain about it. I want the dead of winter to fly by. I don’t want it to last longer.

It was a dull month. There were mid-terms and projects due. The weather was spotty. One day it’d be so springlike and perfect and the next it would be snowing. It was confusing.

My mom randomly showed up for a day. I wake up and… Continue reading | 7 Comments
