In case you missed the memo, I took over Byrdie Beauty‘s Snapchat account on Saturday and shared two of my favorite summer skincare essentials with SPF. Since it was such a beautiful day outside (as Long Beach usually is), I decided to take you guys along with me to explore one of my favorite parts of Long Beach–Shoreline Village!

Shoreline Village – Long Beach, CA
Towards the end of the boardwalk at Shoreline Village (right by the bike rental shop), there’s a place called The Funnel House where you can get funnel cakes, sundaes, cookies, and homemade churros. My friend Yazmin and I shared a classic funnel cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum!
Reapply SPF Every 2 Hours!
Of course, when you’re spending the day outside you have to reapply SPF at the recommended two hour mark. The two products below are great for touch-ups because they’re small and portable!
The Peter Thomas Roth Mineral SPF (20.75% Titanium Dioxide, 19.60% Zinc Oxide) is great because it’s a powder formula so it’s easy to reapply on top of makeup! It’s also a physical SPF which a lot of people of color generally try to stray away from because of the white cast, but this powder is translucent so I find it works great on my brown skin tone!
Another SPF product that I’ve been loving lately is the Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment (SPF 15). I’ve talked about this lip balm before in the color ‘Poppy’ which is a pretty opaque red color, but lately I’ve been loving the Tinted Lip Treatment in the color ‘Rose’! It’s a much more natural flush of color, like a nude-y pink type of situation. It’s like my lips but better!
