We’ve talked about SPF and the importance of it, but what we also forget and shouldn’t are our lips. They need protection as well, as they are susceptible to skin cancer and aging. This is something that should concern us, who wants wrinkly lips? not me. I am obsess with my lips and have realize that a lot of girls know little about the subject, so I have done my research to help you take care those smoochers.

This is the advice from a very famous board-certified plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon.

Look for SPF 15 or higher and apply it often since we use our lips frequently, you’ll never really have enough of it. The sun is harmful regardless the season so use protection all year round. Beware lipstick is not a protection unless it has SPF otherwise lipstick can actually increase the lips absorption of sunlight.

This won’t take you a lot of time and will keep your lips soft and young-looking. Just don’t be afraid to use it and bring it with you at all times. There are a lot out there with or without scent and flavours experiment and find your own.

Kinerase Ultimate Volume:

This is my all time favorite is a lip conditioner with SPF 20 that deeply hydrates, volume-boost and anti-ages.


This is totally inexpensive and a great deal. Is naturally flavored and PABA free and has an SPF of 15.

Laura Geller Lively Lip:

The hydrating formula combines SPF 15 and vitamins A and E to help condition and protect, and aloe barbadensis leaf extract to soothe.

DR MD Copland lip protector:

Developed by a doctor it has a blend of powerful antioxidants as well as SPF #15. This moisturizes preventing cracking and dryness and also helps erase the appearance of fine lines around the lip line.

SPF of 60, you just can’t go wrong. It protects wonders and hydrates your lips like no other lip blam.

Summer is here, we are happy and just wanna lay down on the sun and get tan. Let’s not forget about the damage the sun causes to our skin and get some sun protection. I know alot of you don’t really care or just don’t think about it (talking from personal experience) but just think about it our skin is the biggest organ in our body. Our skin is very important and it protects our body, it’s our responsability to take care of it. The real problem for us ladies is the sticky sensation thats most of this products left us. I have been searching for a good sunblock for ages and here is an A-List for you to give it a try. Let’s remember that the best protection is achieved by application of a sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before exposure, followed by one reapplication 15 to 30 minutes after sun exposure begins and that light skin need a higher SPF for any given amount of sun exposure.

Cetaphil: Daily Facial Moisturizer. SPF 15.

This one is great for tan-aholics. It gives you all the benefits of the sun's rays. It's lightweight, non greasy and moisturizes.

SPF 30 is the recomended minimun daily protection. Contains breakthrough ingredients that hydrate, soothe, protect and reduce redness and inflammation. Is a little bit pricey but your skin will thank you.

One of my favourite things in the world, this product will make your life easier. Dermatologically speaking we should wear sunscreen even under our make-up. This is a loose, translucent powder sunscreen that could also be worn alone.One of my favourite things in the world, this product will make your life easier.

Some call her rising model,  became popular after her first and last exit at Prada SS11, Arizona is the second Next LA sourced model to open a Prada show and the third American in a row to secure that position, 2010 was a great year for her, whose presence in campaigns for Prada and YSL (bottom pic)  makes her one of the breakout stars to watch this year.

Let’s talk about mascara!
I have always been a “natural” looking girl, for long time I was not wearing any makeUp because believe it or not I truly didn’t need it. Then I was feeling (or wanted to feel more like a woman) and discovered the amazing world of makeUp: so many things, so many choices. And as an amateur to try almost every product to finally find the right one for me.
Mascara was never a problem for me since I really didn’t wear any for loooong, nowadays I CAN’T go anywhere without it. I have a lot of them, different brands, different shapes, for different effects.
Here is a list that could help you find the right one for you!
