Speaking My SPF Truth

The past week and a half have been full of pure magic. I spent a week in Malibu getting my yoga on (more on that tomorrow) and then spent a few days in Jamaica for some much-needed R&R. To say that I feel refreshed and refocused is a true understatement. Every day was spent by the pool or the beach or somewhere in between with an iced beverage in one hand and a great book in the other. It was amazing.

One thing that I realized when packing for this trip was that I didn’t have a good sunscreen. Fact: I’m not the best when it comes to that SPF action. I always put it on my face when I go to the beach or pool but am not an avid daily user. I’ll also sometimes skip when I’m on vacation if I forget to pack some. It’s not good. While I don’t always burn when I’m in the sun, my nose and cheeks almost always get a little rosy. The truth is, I know I should be wearing SPF more often if not every single day.

When Olay asked me to try out the Olay Complete All-Day Moisturizer SPF 15, I couldn’t wait to bring it along for my beach getaways. And y’all it did not disappoint.

Not only is this fan favorite the perfect no-frills moisturizer, but it brings you equal parts hydration and soft, smooth skin. The formula is ultra-lightweight and is packed with antioxidants that help to condition skin’s surface. On top of all of that, you get the added protection of SPF for the perfect daily moisturizer to pack in your beach bag. SolaSheer Technology helps prevent premature skin damage with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen. And guess what guys – no need to worry about that greasy, thick stuff. With a lightweight touch and easy application, it’s so easy to apply.

I’m also excited to use this in my daily life when I get home by applying a small amount to my skin every morning before applying makeup or heading out for the day.

Protecting my skin is something I’ve been trying to put a larger focus on and now I have all the tools to make it happen. This has actually pushed me to put a little more effort into preventative self-care in general. Taking the time to get in a daily workout, make a home cooked meal, drink more water…all the things. We’re only given one body, so I want to make the most of mine and that includes the skin!

Are you guys hardcore SPF users? Are you willing to give a go with me? Sound off below! BJ’s has a special 2-pack of Olay Complete Moisturizer, you can get it here!

    Great post! I’m happy to see that SPF and skin protection against the sun is becoming more popular and well known. Where I’m from I still see women and young girls tanning in tanning beds or laying out in the high sun. It scares me for those women, and spf and skin cancer dangers need to be more broadcasted.

    I’m not the best at using SPF on my face mainly because I haven’t found one I really like. The ones I’ve tried are so greasy – not good for a girl who has oily skin. I know I need to find one that works soon.
