We love summertime for the long days, good weather, and outdoor get-togethers with friends. But one thing we hate? The damaging effects of the sun.
Thankfully, City Shoppe’s got just the right products to keep you safe. Plus, they all come from reputable companies with a positive social impact.
First off? We love Essence’s organic, gluten-free, and Portland-made sun creme. With plenty of vitamin C (a potent antioxidant), it’ll protect and repair your skin from the sun. But on days you’re looking for a little extra tint, may we suggest ZenJenSkin’s North Carolina-based, vegan, non-GMO tinted day lotion. Not only does it act as a natural sunblock, but it also helps repair sun damage, lightens dark spots, hydrates, and firms.
Then, round off your morning routine with one of Essence’s six moisturizing organic lip balms and their organic aloe mineral powder. The powder offers just the right amount of coverage for a barely-there sun-kissed look. It’s also got sun protection, fights acne, and helps heal scars.
Once your face and skin are taken care of, don’t forget to head out the door with some protection for your head. We’re partial to this cork brim hat by Portland-based Rustek. The upper is made of wool and the brim and patch come from cork—a water and fade-resistant material. But if you’re in the mood to rep Nashville’s 615 area code, check out Project 615’s soft cotton blend hat.
And for those of you with a baby in tow, let’s not forget Ojala Thread’s jersey-stretch car seat cover. It’s stretchable, soft, and adaptable to any car seat, but you’ll also love to use it as a nursing or protective cover for shopping carts, high chairs, infant swings—you name it.
Last but not least, don’t forget to keep giving your face some love after a long day out. We’re obsessed with this high-quality face oil from Austin-based Absorb Skin Care. We love how it goes beyond hydration to boost collagen production, fight skin damage, clear acne, and brighten hyperpigmentation.
