What to Look for in Your Sunscreen

sunscreen

Just because a sunscreen has made it to the shelves of your local big box store or even to your favorite beauty supply chain does not make it safe, healthy and effective. Some sunscreens do not protect against all of the damaging rays of the sun, and others do not actually contain as much active ingredients as the bottle states. This can lead to significant sunburns and skin damage. The next time you are staring at the dozens of creams, sprays and rollers that line the sunscreen aisle, remember these for finding a great sunscreen.

Look for SPF

For good daily sun protection, you should look for sunscreens boasting an SPF of at least 15. This number means that how fast you would normally burn is multiplied by a factor of 15. However, even under harsh sunlight, SPF 30 is typically fine for most people. This is because the benefits of SPF do not get significantly higher beyond this point. Those who have already experienced skin damage or who are at very high risk of sunburn may want to use SPF 50 when in bright sunlight.

Look for UVA Protection

Older sunscreens only protected from UVB rays from the sun. Today, however, scientists have learned how much damage UVA rays can do. The listed SPF will not tell you how much the formula will protect you from UVA rays. If you check the ingredient list though, you will get a good idea as to whether the sunscreen is a safe choice. Some top ingredients for protecting against UVA rays include ecamsule, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. (more…)

Three Things to Remember on My Next Car Purchase

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I bought my first car in 2010. Truth be told, there are a few things I would have done differently. Call it buyer’s remorse. But fact is, it is a major purchase, and every step towards making that decision is crucial.

Here are three things that I am taking a mental note of,  the next time I buy another car.

Research

Yes, I believe I did some research. But at the back of my mind I was set on this particular car. Research should be fueled by the purpose of getting the best bang for my buck. Buying on a whim is a total waste. (more…)

5 Tips to Picking the Right Curling Wand

Doing your hair every morning can seem like a tedious task and one that is not fun to do when you are still waking up from a good night of sleep. Regardless of your motivation for getting up in the morning, you will likely want to style your hair in a way that makes you feel confident about yourself before you step foot out of your house. If you are new to styling your hair in trendy ways, this article will get you all set up to being a trendsetter in no time. Curling wands have been used for years to curl hair and make tresses look smooth and unique. If you are in the market for a new curling wand, be sure to check out some of our tips before you make a commitment and purchase.

  1. Read reviews. Magazines such as Allure and Harper’s Bazaar often provide tips and tricks on how to apply make up a certain way or style your hair the way the celebrities are doing so when they walk the runway. While magazines are great for inspiration and generating ideas, it is hard to tell if the products featured are actually as good as the magazine is claiming them to be as the products are usually highlighted because of a marketing plan. To get a true understanding of how a product such as the best curling wand works, be sure to read reviews from bloggers or others you trust to give a true, detailed, rundown of a product.
  2. Check the barrel size. The barrel size of the curling wand should coordinate with how big you want your curls to be. If you want small, ringlet curls, you will want to invest in a skinnier wand. The wand should be no larger than .75 inches if you want tightly bound curls. However, if you want larger curls that will create volume and a casual look, you will want a larger barrel curling wand. A wand that is 1-2 inches thick will do the trick.
  3. Features. Decide on the type of features you want your wand to have. Do you want your hand to have a temperature gauge so you can keep track of the heat? Perhaps you want an iron that offers automatic shut off if it is has been on for too long. There are many great features that may cost you an additional sum of money but in the end will be worth every penny.
  4. Budget. Curling wands can cost over $100 and can drain your budget very quick. Keep in mind that there are other products you will likely want to buy in addition to the curling wand. Some things you may want to purchase but you have not considered yet include but are not limited a bamboo brush, hair accessories, shampoo or sculpting gel. There are many hair care products to choose from so be sure to save some money in your budget for those items as well.
  5. Warranty. Depending on the wand you purchase, some can cost over $100. If you are investing in an item and expect to have it for a long period of time, you will want to look in to the product warranty. Be sure to review the warranty and if it is satisfactory, move forward. However, if the warranty is severely limited or lackluster in their offerings for coverage, you may want to choose a different model.
