I used to worship the sun. like oil my body + sit on the beach until I was that perfect golden shade, worship the sun. I know – wtf.
those are my exact words cursing all the little sun spots that made a home on my face over many years! I have naturally very fair skin so of course, all I wanted when I was in my 20’s, was to be tanned. in my mid 30’s I really started to notice the little freckles + sun spots which weren’t there the night before – funny how they just crept up on me. I became very conscious of these spots – they weren’t bad but to me, they were horrible. I did not want freckles! I actively started staying out of the sun, wearing sunscreen, big hats, trying all the dark spot correcting serums at Sephora, etc etc.
now I’m my 40’s, I only have 2 small sun spots that no matter what I do, will not leave me! I have come to accept + love them, using them as a reminder to be very mindful of sun exposure and always wear SPF. as summer rolls around every year, I’m always wanting that glow but of course I venture out with a big hat to cover my face!
luckily, I came across these amazing bronzing face drops from lux unfiltered that add a beautiful, natural + subtle glow in just a few drops! you can build the color over days, or just use here + there. I usually do 1 -2 drops every 3-5 days in the summer just to keep a glowy face. the best part – you can skip the makeup!
