Make it a December to remember with gifts that bring a smile to your loved ones’ faces. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, we’ve got tons of gift ideas to inspire you. 2020 has been a tough year for just about everyone so hopefully this blog provides some ease to your holiday shopping stress. It’s not too late so let’s get started!
Friends Don’t Let Friends Forget SPF
It sounds weird but did you know you can still get sunburnt during the winter? Interestingly enough, the sun is actually closer to the earth during the winter months and the ozone is thinner, giving you even less protection from the sun. Not to mention the fact that ice and snow can both reflect UV rays, leaving you extra vulnerable. You may not feel like you’re burning in the cold, but your skin may be absorbing more ultraviolet rays because of this fact.
These handy pocket-sized sunscreens and lip balms by EltaMD are recommended by the Official Skin Cancer Foundation for daily protection against damaging UV rays.
Our favorites include:
EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 (comes Tinted/ Non-Tinted) is a lightweight sunscreen made especially for skin types prone to Acne, Rosacea and Hyperpigmentation ($35 – $37)
EltaMD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 (comes Tinted/ Non-Tinted) for normal, combination, and post-procedure skin ($28 – $31)
EltaMD UV Broad-Spectrum SPF 31 Lip Balm is water-resistant and moisturizes lips while protecting against UVA/UVB rays ($11)

-and for good reason too! Serums are necessary for preventing and correcting skin damage and can easily be incorporated into any established skincare routine.
