How to Stay Pretty and Protected in the Sun! #MySummerLook

It's Beach time, it's gym time and it's dress down season at church! All of these things mean that its totally time to #BeSummerTimeFine!...and Pretty Legs are the first place that I go when getting on point! I have to have great nails, great feet and I must be protected when it comes to my skin. Target is one of my go to places for amazing selection and the best beauty products!

Many Black Girls will say that "Black Don't Crack" but this is simply not true.  When being overexposed to the sun, our beautiful brown skin cracks and ages just like anybody elses, so I am mindful to keep my skin protected while I am looking pretty!  

After getting a nice smooth shave I like to apply sunscreen to protect my skin and of course my Pretty Legs! I have always been an avid user of sunscreen, but I will be honest, I never loved the way that it smelled or how difficult that it was to put on and get all the way into my skin! Banana Boat to the rescue, protecting me at 50+ SPF and I just have to spray it on!! The only place that I don't spray it on is my face, I just spray a little in my hands and wipe it on my face.

Banana Boat Sport Performance Benefits:

  • You spray it on so there is no need to spend 20 minutes coating it on!
  • Its invisible, so there will be no white globs where you missed a spot rubbing it in!
  • Its basically odorless.
  • Its 50+ SPF what more do I need to say?

Good Cuticles and Healthy Nails

Good cuticles and healthy nails are a must when get that perfect look.  I am mindful of the fact that before we can add color, we need to make sure that the cuticles are cute and that the nails have been cut down and shaped!

One of the most important places that I like to look fly is when I am going to the church house.  Sunday's are a big deal in the Black community and we love to do church!  The spirit is high and we are looking fly!  So before I make my way into the church house its important to me that I do my best to look as good as possible when worshiping!

Here are a few of my poppin nail looks that get me second looks in the glam section at church!

I can usually do my at home mani-pedi at home the night before so that I'm not rushing perfection, but if I DO happen to be running a little late(like Diva's Do), I will grab my Insta-Dri in an insta-second! And you know that I won't miss a beat instagraming it either!
