Natural Bronzer. Get Tanned the SAFE Way!

Let’s talk summer sun safety!

It’s no secret that Mama Joy and I loooooove the sun. We’ve spent many years baking in the sunshine trying to get a dreamy summer glow (plus, we’re all about vitamin D.) In fact, I created Youth Potion specifically to target Mama’s discoloration from her years of sun-worshiping.  As with most enjoyable things in life, moderation is key. We all know that too much sun exposure can lead to sunburn, premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. The last few years (after quite a few scares with skin cancer in our family) I have been a lot more careful with my sun exposure, but to tell the truth, I have really missed feeling like a bronzed goddess every summer. (This photo is from back in my sun-seeking days, pregnant with Avi!)


We are very big on natural ingredients here (no surprise) and I get very bad skin irritation from most chemicals, synthetic fragrances and preservatives that are in the majority of bronzing lotions and self tanners.

The solution?

We partnered with Michelle from Innomineral Cosmetics to get our summer glow the safe and natural way! Michelle Created Innomineral because she was tired of reading labels on the back of so-called “natural” or “organic” makeup lines which often still contained skin irritants or harmful ingredients. Her pigments are the highest quality, safe and non-irritating even for sensitive skin. When we saw her gorgeous colours we just HAD to try them with the Potion.

It is SO easy to make a safe , natural bronzer by blending just a few drops of your favorite Face Potion with a dab of minerals. We use Bronze Sparkle for an all-over glow and Lunar Pink and Deceitful Copper to highlight collar bones, cheeks and the bridge of our nose! These minerals are so versatile that they work for most skin tones. Just look at how different our three skin tones are, we’re all wearing the same colours!

I want to share some ways I stay safe in the sun (beyond sunscreen.) When I use sunscreen I always choose a natural mineral sunscreen as it doesn’t cause me irritation and I don’t have to worry about the irritating chemicals found in conventional sunscreens. However, it can leave a white sheen and can affect how my makeup looks (you know I love my makeup!) So, I try to seek out shade and keep my sun exposure to a minimum the following ways.

 

  • Wear a hat!
  • Don’t forget your eyes, sunglasses will help prevent sun damage and those dreaded crowsfeet.
  • On beach days, bring a canopy or large umbrella. This makes a great shady area for the kids and we can relax and enjoy looking out on the water without getting sun stroke.
  • Invest in some airy, yet full coverage clothing for summer. My faves are flowy maxi dresses and tunics.
  • When going for walks and hikes, choose a forest path with lots of shady trees.
  • Stay indoors when the sun is highest in the sky and your risk for burning is greatest.

 

Remember that the sun is not our enemy, moderate exposure (20 minutes or so per day) gives us great Vitamin D! As long as we are cautious to not over do it and get our tans the safe way (with our natural bronzer) we can enjoy the summer worry free. Oh, and one more thing, Alberta is one of the sunniest provinces, enjoying over 300 days of sun each year! Remember to be sun safe in the winter as well and your skin will thank you!

My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it’s been a while since my lover’s attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn’t need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what’s-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with… Thank you Dr Emu.
