There’s something about summertime that just makes things better. Maybe it’s the warm weather. The actual sunshine. The beach. The flowy dresses. The rooftop happy hours. The music festivals. The al fresco dining. The long runs through the park. We could go on and on. Basically, summer happiness all boils down to one thing: being able to go outside.
Since we’re beauty enthusiasts here at Influenster, we know that going outside means sunscreen! Wearing sunscreen (all year long) is important for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. In fact, the sun is one of the major causes of premature aging. To prevent unwanted wrinkles and discolorations, we need to wear daily SPF. When choosing a brand of sunscreen, we like to look beyond the ingredients and efficacy. We want to find a brand whose values feel relevant to our own lives. One of our favorites at the moment is Bare Republic. Not only do they specialize in mineral, reef-friendly formulas, but they also abide by a "Born To Be Bare" mission—which we adore.
Born to be bare
Bare Republic is as natural as it gets. The safe and effective cruelty-free sunscreens combine antioxidant-rich oils, plant extracts, and non-nano mineral actives zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to help nourish and protect your skin. You can bare it all outside while protecting your birthday suit from sunburns and artificial ingredients. The biodegradable and reef-friendly formulas are free of chemical actives, synthetic fragrances, parabens, and anything else you wouldn’t want to put on your skin or leave behind in nature. As a result, you can take on all of life’s adventures without compromising your health or the environment.
Whether you’re skinny dipping in Lake Tahoe, backpacking through Thailand, or dancing ‘til sunrise in Black Rock City, Bare Republic is here to give you the freedom to go bare outside. You can let the good times roll without worrying about the morning’s sunburn.
We’re sending the Mineral Face SPF 30 Lotion, Mineral SPF 30 Spray, and Mineral SPF 30 Shimmer Sunscreen Lotion in our next VoxBox to prep our Influensters for fun in the sun. Have you tried any Bare Republic products? Tell us about it in the comments.
