Hot Mama Tip

By Glinda

We all know that protecting your skin from the sun will prolong your hot mama years, because those nasty rays do all sorts of unpleasant things to our skin. 

This was unfortunately a lesson learned by me fairly late in life, since when I was growing up, it was fairly common to bake out in the sun using only baby oil.  Ahem.  I’m sure I’ve dated myself on that one, but I do it because I love you and want you to learn from my mistakes.

Therefore, I make sure to use a daily moisturizer that contains at least a 15 SPF. I am all for the highest amount of sunscreen protection possible. But just know that you don’t really get all that much more protection from a 50 sunscreen versus a 30, but you will get a gloppier, goopier product. 30 SPF is apparently the point at which the lotion gets a little gnarly. Thus, you don’t find many daily moisturizers that go above 30.

Here are some highly rated moisturizers, ranging from extremely pricey to not pricey at all.

Photobucket Pretty darn pricey describes Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream SPF 15, but I know people who use it who swear by it for their sensitive skin.

Photobucket Coming in at only slightly less pricey is Clarins Bright Plus HP Protective Brightening Day Lotion Oil Free SPF 20. This is a good bet for combination skin, it is supposed to “rev” up your skin and make it look better.

Photobucket In the much, much less pricey zone comes Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF 30. It’s a good, basic moisturizer for sensitive skin that won’t set you back a whole lot, but will still give you the protection you need.

Photobucket Luckily, one of the top-rated moisturizers isn’t all that expensive, either. Olay Regenerist Regenerating Lotion with UV protection provides broad spectrum protection (both UVA and UVB rays) for less. I’ve used it myself, and it is has a nice light and non-greasy texture.

    And a hat! Wear a hat!

    The other advice I would give to young women is to take the stairs whenever possible so they do not have to spend years trying to restore their bottoms to a state of perkiness. It is far easier to maintain than to regain.

    Love the Caudalie. It is pricey, but as dry as my skin can be, it still breaks out. And since I’m never plan on having any facial “enhancements,” I need to take good care of what I’ve got!

    I have the Caudalie eye cream which I really like. It’s the one eye cream I’ve stuck with a few times now. Most others I buy it once, use it all, then move on to another convinced that something else works better. Pricey, ooooh yes.
