Celebrate Day 3 of National Sun Awareness Week with Tarte Tarteguard 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion

It's National Sun Awareness Week and considering how militant I am about us all wearing our sun protection, I decided we should dedicate a post every day this week to fun sun facts and an awesome sunscreen pick - enjoy and you're welcome!

Don't like sunscreen because most sun protection products don't smell good or look pretty on your dressing table? - then check out:

Tarte Tarteguard 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 - 50ml - $38 - an all-mineral, non-chemical, lightweight, non-sticky liquid lotion sunscreen that helps to protect, moisturize, brighten, and re-invigorate skin for a youthful-looking appearance. The formula is also infused with maracuja, red algae, soybean, apple, and honeysuckle extracts to nourish, tone, and retain moisture while helping to combat signs of aging for a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance. The fresh, ocean’s lily scent allows for luxurious, spa-like daily applications, while the high-performance liquid emulsion seamlessly melts into skin, leaving it supremely soft and silky.

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca.

Ever wonder how tanning even became a fashionable thing to do? Some of the blame goes to Coco Chanel. It used to be that women's clothes covered so much that a body tan was impossible, and a tan on the face and hands signified what it still does in developing nations - that the tanned person is an outdoor laborer, most likely of low social status. Lily-white skin remained a sign of a lady even after industrialization, but legend has it that when Chanel was accidentally sunburned during a trip to the Riviera and developed a tan from the burn, her new hue took hold among the fashionable as a symbol of all she herself embodied: modernism, luxury and independence. 

If you don't want to get over your love of the tanned look, don't despair - self-tanners today are so good that you can still have all the glow without any of the risk!
