It's the Fourth of July! I love the Fourth because it's a time to spend with friends and family at the beach or a park under the sun, having a blast. Having lived in Florida for so many years I've gone through every possible sun experience you can think of. So I thought I would share the two best and easy tips for having a great Fourth of July with no worries attached!

Wear Sunscreen!

The best and easy sunscreen to run out and get is 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer with Helioplex and SPF 50

. I used to think sunscreen was not very important especially because I was afraid that the sunscreen would prevent me from getting any sort of tan. However, I cannot stress enough how important it is to put on sunscreen at least on your face. The sun is incredibly damaging to your skin (wrinkles, dark spots..) and if you don't take care of your skin now, you will regret it in 10, 20 years! That's why I always put on Neutrogena Ultra Sheer when I know I will be out in the sun for a long time. It protects my skin but still lets me catch a little bit of sun on my face.


It is so important to stay hydrated especially if your Fourth of July festivities include having a couple celebratory drinks. When you're in the sun, especially, our bodies become easily dehydrated. Believe it or not, beer is the best choice of drink; It is 93% water and can

hydrate better than water

, so if you have to choose between drinks this Fourth of July, grab a beer and stay hydrated! Your skin also will appreciate the hydration.

There you have it, the two tips I never forget about, #summeressentials.
