“My UV Check”

Hi tartelettes,

With summer just around the corner there’s one thing on my mind: SUNSHINE! While I’m ashamed to admit it, I had a history of spending the day at the beach and not wearing enough sunscreen. In fact, there have been days I even woke up the next day looking like a lobster. This year I plan on enjoying the sunshine while still properly protecting my skin.  Luckily, I recently came across a new iPhone application, “My UV Check” which is part of the Save our Skin campaign.  My UV Check is the first application on the market that measures both the UVA and UVB index, provides individualized sun risk diagnosis and demonstrates how to check your own skin for suspicious lesions/moles. It also allows you to explore the La Roche – Posay Anthelios range for individualized product recommendations and to find the closest store near you. This app is the perfect way to help people like me practice save sunning!

To find out more about the Save your Skin campaign, I recommend visiting www.SOSSaveOurSin.com.

Top That!

Some of Hollywood’s prettiest stars are facing the latest fedora trend head-on, literally. They just tuck back their lush locks and pull the brim over their sparkling eyes and zip in and out of Starbucks, LAX, Katsuya with such pizazz. What stars, you ask? Zac Efron, Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake and Jaime Foxx to name a few. Well, I think we should make like these pretty boys and get on top of that trend.

Fedoras are a great summer style that is not nearly as daunting as swimwear but just as warm-weather welcoming. From Bebe to Hat Attack, Shopbop to Forever21, this adorable topping is available at every price point. Shopstyle.com is a great source for finding the perfect shade, shape and chic look for you.

During a recent Miami trip, I paired my classic straw version with a white tee and cut-offs for a look that was Collins Ave Cool. The paps just couldn’t get enough. Ok, so maybe there weren’t any paparazzi, but I radiated casual chicness nonetheless.

With all of the talk of global warming and deadly rays, you have to give skin cancer the one-two punch. Keep piling on the SPF, but why not try a fedora for a second stylish form of sunscreen?
And lucky for you, tarte is celebrating Skin Cancer Awareness month by offering 20% off of some of their most sun savvy products with the code sun20. Lightweight and sheer, but packing the power of SPF 20, the Smooth Operator foundation is the perfect mate to this canvas style in sleek dove grey by Banana Republic.

So pick up a few of tarte’s “Save Your Skin” items and don’t forget to top it off with a funky fedora!
