THE NEW WAY TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN THIS SUMMER

The New Way to Protect Your Skin This Summer

It’s time for an oil change.

The words “sunscreen oil” may make you think immediately of pina colada-scented, deeply dark tanning oil—and skin damage. But naturalistas have been slathering on extra-virgin coconut oil instead of chemically-laden sunscreen lotions for years. Now beauty companies are picking up on the trend and launching new nourishing oil blends that keep skin moisturized while they fend off harmful rays. 

Face oil, contrary to popular belief, is tremendously moisturizing without clogging pores. Additionally, the oils give a mega-dose of antioxidants to ward off free radicals and combat the damaging effects of the sun more effectively. 

Click through the slideshow above to see the latest way to practice safe sun this summer.
