Beauty Bits: Keeping the Pale

Pale is in.  Or making a comeback.  Or poised to make a comeback.  Or perhaps I want to make myself feel better.  Fine - being tan is awesome.  It makes you look thinner, your skin looks smoother and wearing bright lipstick is a rite of passage.  But I don't tan, I splotch.  Splotch is the opposite of looking thinner, skin looking smoother and is an inappropriate palette for a bright lipstick.  So really, I have no choice - hence pale is the color du jour.  And to preserve the pale and stave off the splotch, I turn to the above products for rescue.  I have it all covered and multiple times over - face, body, lips, repeat.  The only body part that I do not shield from the sun using a cosmetic product (gasp) is my hair.  Is hair a body part?  Well - let's pretend it is for this post.  My hair is normally hidden, adorably so, under a hat - fedora not floppy (the subway ain't the kentucky derby, ya feel me?).  The key to my casper like appearance is layering - a body lotion with SPF to moisturize but then a spray for when a mobile touch up is needed.  For the face, I run from the multiple choices in favor of one product that can protect and hydrate.  Often I finish the face with a foundation, tinted moisturizer or powder that also has SPF, but I can ramble on about that another time.  Let's stick to the matter at hand.  And let's get a little intro on each product, shall we?

1. Dior Lip Glow with SPF - this is a clear lip balm that enhances the natural color of your lips, with
    SPF. Neat.
2. Olay All Day Moisturizer SPF 15 - oldie but a goodie. SUPER lightweight and all around good
3. Julep Daylight Defense - I professed my love for this in my June favorites - it smells like oranges,
    melts right into the skin and goes great under makeup. 
4. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock - great mobile product and beach necessity.  Not 
    super sticky like some I have tried. 
5. Kiehl's Creme De Corps Lightweight Body Lotion with SPF - this is part of their iconic Creme de
    Corps line so you know it's bound to be good.  And it is.  
6. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF - another alternative to a day time moisturizer under
    makeup.  Lightweight, blends easily, feels good on skin, blah, blah, blah.  Just buy it.
