BEAUTY: sun exposure & protection

Beauty Talk: Sun Protection with La Roche-Posay UV-Patch | Bikinis & Passports

Generally speaking, my skin type falls into the category of “easy to get burnt”. Freckles, fair skin and blue eyes don’t necessarily speak for a southern type and I definitely don’t tan easily. Luckily though, I am pretty good at taking care of my skin and protecting it from getting burnt. I don’t think sunburns are cool and get mad at myself if even my nose is pink at the end of a day spent outside by the beach or pool….
