The best sunscreens for brides

Over on Offbeat Home, we are featuring a new series of posts from Tania of Makeup To Go — a makeup artist for the entertainment industries and friend of the Empire. But we're taking a quick break from make-up to talk about the best sunscreens

We all know we're supposed to wear sunscreen, but do we? In parts of the country where it's not as constantly sunshiny as my home in California, it's easy to think you don’t need it until summer rolls around. Well, study after study says that we do. Now is the time to develop the habit of wearing sunscreen regularly. Here are some of my fave sunscreens, as well as some interesting newcomers…

If you're having an outdoor wedding, or are planning on taking photos outside, or don't want to get a sunburn in the days leading up to your wedding, head over here to find out the best sunscreens for brides and grooms!

  1. That photo is from my wedding! So cool to see it used here! Funny story…I totally forgot the sunscreen, and yes I paid the price. My favourite sunscreen for my pasty Canadian skin is Hawaiian tropic spf 30.

    • Some sunscreens can reflect a photographer's flash in a really weird, unattractive way. Considering how heavily most brides and grooms are photographed and how expensive photographers can be it's worth some investigation.

      And just THINK of the available market there is for bridal sunscreen! Slap some crystals all over a bottle of sunscreen, increase the price x4, and whammo! Enjoy your new empire.

  2. The makeup artist for my wedding recommended Neutrogena Dry Touch, and it worked really well. Once it rubs in, there's really no grease, so the pictures came out great!
