A sun-kissed glow might rank high on summer beauty lists, but proper sun protection is non-negotiable. Each year, an estimated 192,310 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in the United States, with 86% of cases attributed to sun exposure (Skin Cancer Foundation). At Eminence Organics, we want you to look your best and stay protected. Here are a few of our favorite sun essentials, hand-picked by our experts to protect your skin and extend your glow all season long.
During The Day: Protect Your Skin
Did you know that the risk for melanoma doubles if you have had more than five sunburns in your lifetime? If you’re planning to spend time in the sun, protecting your skin from damage should be priority number one.
Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30
Shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays with Eminence Organics Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen SPF 30, formulated with zinc oxide. Whether you’re swimming or engaging in outdoor sports, this water-resistant sunscreen protects you from broad spectrum UV rays throughout the summer. Resistant through water activities and perspiration for up to 40 minutes, this sport formulation keeps you covered from head to toe.
Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 40
Looking for a moisturizer that doubles as sun protection? Our Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 40 can multi-task all summer long. Formulated with zinc oxide and titanium oxide, this moisturizer uses these natural minerals to block UV rays. Larch tree adds moisture while lilikoi seed oil helps with the visible signs of aging, so the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer not only protects the skin from the elements but also leaves it lightly hydrated and looking fresh and natural.
Sun Defense Minerals SPF 30
If you’re looking for another multi-purpose marvel, our mineral powders pull double duty as a skin care and makeup product. For a more natural look this summer, swap out your too-heavy makeup powder for an Eminence Organics mineral powder with SPF 30. There are five shades plus 1 translucent powder for you to pick from.
Don’t forget to protect your lips; lacking melanin, they are highly susceptible to sunburn.
Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15
Don’t forget to protect your lips; lacking melanin, they are highly susceptible to sunburn. Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm is infused with rosehip oil, lavender and zinc oxide to keep your pucker perfectly moisturized and protected.
At Night: Repair Damage
Sun damage doesn’t stop once you’ve sought out shade; the effects of UV exposure, including dry and itchy skin, can take from two to four hours to fully develop. Soothe dryness and replenish moisture with these Eminence Organics after-sun essentials.
Is your skin suffering from sun exposure? Repair, soothe and reduce redness due to dryness with Eminence Organics Kombucha Microbiome Leave-On Masque. Infused with ginger, which helps replenish dry skin, this slow-absorbing mask renews the appearance of skin while supporting the moisture barrier.
