Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks all about sunscreen and how to avoid the sun.

Hi. I’m Lauryn and I’m a SPF addict. A total bat-shit crazy, sunscreen psycho.

Examples?

1.} I paid to get my windows tinted. Not to be cool. Nope, nope. This isn’t a I’m-too-cool-for-school-so-I-black-out-my-windows-like-rapper situation. It’s to protect my hands & chest area from the sun.

2.} There’s a trucker hat in my oversized purse. I use it daily.

3.} I put SPF on my hands, fingers, chest, face, neck…everyday.

4.} Like, it’s so bad I won’t even let my boyfriend open the sunroof.

5.} I asked my vet if there’s sunscreen for dogs. Pixy desperately needs it- she’s a total sun worshiper.

6.} I’m petrified of UV lights at the DMV, underground offices, &/or super markets.

7.} I use a SPF protector on my hair. Because yes, the sun is harmful for hair too.

8.} I’d rather die than go in a tanning bed.

9.} My sunglasses cover my whole face. Literally.

I’m seriously, serious.

The sun scares the shit out of me.

Why am I so psycho?

Instead of giving you a long, huge explanation, let me just break it down quickly:

Wrinkles.

Skin cancer.

Aging.

Pigmentation.

Fine lines.

Sallowness ( a yellow discoloration of the skin ).

Benign tumors.

The destruction of collagen— buh-bye youth!

SO!!! Here’s my point: IF YOU WANT TO AGE QUICKLY, GO LAY OUT IN THE SUN WITHOUT PROTECTION!

Don’t worry, even if you protect your bod from the sun you’ll still get a daily dose of Vitamin D. AKA when you’re getting in and out of the car, walking to the mailbox, &/or opening windows in your house.

Recommendations: I’m OBSESSED with Colorescience’s powdered, colored sunscreen called ‘Sunforgettable’. I literally swear by it. It’s a TOTAL game changer. Once you try it, you’ll fall in love. However, when I’m applying makeup I’ll also use this SPF tinted foundation. For my hands/arms/neck/chest/etc., this all-natural brand is my favorite.

Lather up!

P.S. I’m not saying never lay out again- just take proper precautions. Wear a hat, tons of SPF, and body sunscreen ; )!

    Yesssss, I love these tips. I never want crazy freckles/ wrinkles/ leather skin.
    I’d die without Kate Somerville sunscreen & my Kentucky Derby hat.

    I totally agree!! There is nothing more important that to protect your skin from the sun! I SPF every day and I keep a giant sunhat in my car that I wear every time I go outside for something. I also have oversized vintage sunnies that I just cant live without. I have incredibly fair skin so I have to be super careful when I go out in the sun. Expecially because I live in Australia and man do we get A LOT of sun!!

    yep! I’m the exact same way…I’m terrified of the sun haha. I want to stay youthful forever 🙂 SPF all over, on the daily!

    I’m the girl by the pool continuously rubbing spf 70 all over myself, wearing a huge hat, and sitting under an umbrella haha

    I’m big on sunscreen too! Okay, I’m not as psycho as you are, but I probably should be. I’m definitely not a sun worshipper though. I have really light skin, so I make sure to keep it protected. Don’t forget about SPF lip balm! Wrinkly lips…ew.

    If you’re such a SPF goddess, would you like to explain to me how in the world you stay so tan?! All this time I thought you hit the beds every day or something… you’ve got gorgeous, bronzed skin. Tell me your secrets doll!

    I love coola sunscreen. The creme is mostly free of the baddies and it rubs in better than most. And in a pinch the spray is awesome though it does have chemicals.
