Beauty Blast: My Face Saver

Blog Health Modeling My Organic Life My Photography Product Reviews Skincare


If there’s one thing I’ve learned since moving to California, it’s that the sun that I used to practically worship in New York needs no extra special attention to say hello out West!

After just a few months here, it becomes pretty apparent that the amount of sun that used to make you freckly and tan can now age you tremendously in just months.  It wasn’t long before I started looking out for sunscreens, and surprisingly, I was completely horrified at what I found.  I actually found studies where the chemicals in sunscreen were what was found to give people cancerNOT the sun!  After that, I did my thorough research for All Natural Sunscreen.

One of the first brands that I reached out to was Raw Elements, an Organic, EWG, All Natural Sunscreen!  I’ve been using them for months now, and have brought their travel-friendly sunblock-stick with me all over the World!  It’s great for travel and you don’t have to keep re-applying it like other sunscreens!  It’s saved my face & my body everywhere from New York to California to Mexico!
