Did you know broad-spectrum sunscreen can reduce the skin from aging by more than 25 percent? Summer is here, and sun exposure is at its highest in July. Some excuses people use to avoid applying SPF products are that lotion is too greasy, it’s cloudy outside, I don’t burn, I’m naturally tan, I don’t have time, I work indoors, my skin gets irritated or it smells terrible. But applying sunscreen should be deemed a priority for those wanting to look youthful and healthy. I want to share some of my go-to sunscreen brands for outdoor activities, travel and everyday use. These are staples in my daily routine.

  • I start my day every morning with Tarte BB Tinted 12-Hour Primer with SPF 30. This product leaves my skin looking more even-toned, moisturized and gives me slight coverage from the sun. It isn’t as thick as a cover-up and leaves my skin feeling great all day. You can find this product at a local Sephora to test their different matte finishes and choose between a full size or a travel size.
  • One of my favorite sunscreen brands I recently discovered through a friend who spends a lot of time on boats is Soleil Toujours Clean Conscious Antioxidant Mist. I was pleased with the scent of the spray and felt it left my body protected in and out of water for several hours.
  • Unseen Sunscreen by Supergoop! is another product I have been satisfied using. It goes on extremely smoothly due to being invisible, weightless and scentless. They have several products I have yet to try but would recommend, such as the daily moisturizer and Play everyday lotion.
  • Another excellent option for a daily moisturizer if you want to avoid tints and primers is Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream with SPF 30. Not only does it moisturize your skin when you wake up, but it also protects it before heading out the door.
  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer is my favorite low-cost sunscreen to pick up from a local drug store on my way to the beach. I feel the brand does a good job making products for those with sensitive skin, eczema and acne, and has something for all types.

During summer vacations, please remember that despite your skin type, age or the weather, if you’re not using sunscreen, you are significantly increasing your chances for cancer, wrinkles and sun spots.

Hidden Gem: Discover Istanbul’s Vibrant Balat Neighborhood

The UNESCO World Heritage neighborhood of Balat rivals İstanbul’s Old City for its historic significance, with an added splash of color. Its cobbled hilly streets boast a full rainbow of houses, cafés, restaurants and churches painted in pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues — parts even surpassing my native San Francisco’s steep, colorful corridors. The most vibrant stretch of homes, dating anywhere from 50 to 200 years old, runs along Kiremit Caddesi.
