Car-Worthy Sunscreens

Posted on Aug 15, 2009 at 6:57AM

Mother Blogger (Obviously not shown in picture!) was feeling grumpy, dumpy, and bumpy about her 55th birthday so she tried to turn her frown upside down with a vacay that she entitled "The Double Digit Birthday Tour."  Twenty-Four hours of driving in the summer sun can play havoc with your skin and hair, though.  Although MB forgot her Coolibar hat with UPF rating  -- Don't you dare tell Kevin Q, her hair artiste, that she was driving sans hat! -- she did remember to pack her favorite arsenal of sunscreens:

  • Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 45:  This odorless sunscreen can be applied and reapplied quickly and easily over makeup or alone.
  • La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Milk:  Smooth and absorbs quickly so that your hands don't slip off the steering wheel.*
  • Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 45 with helioplex:  Fave of MB's derm.


Lessons from Mother Blogger's Double Digit Birthday Tour - 5 Ways to get your Happy On:

  1. Do something for someone else. (Mother Blogger drove 12 hours, wrapped herself in wrapping paper and a big bow, knocked on her dad's front door for his 83rd birthday.)
  2. Meditate. (MB tried meditating in the car.  *Dangerous!  Ten minutes in a quiet place is all you need.)
  3. Get Friendly. (Socializing with friends boosts positive emotions.  All my twentysomethings, listen up:  This does not require anything physical!)
  4. Move More.  (Driving across country is not required.  30 minutes of moderate exercise will fulfil this tip.)
  5. Change your way of thinking. (Create a gratitude journal.  Even when you are at your wit's end, writing down something that you are thankful for will change your way of thinking.)


*To that sexy looking thirtysomething man in a red Porsche convertible outside of Annapolis, here's what your $126,000 red car says about you: 

Although opinionated and generally confident, drivers of red cars are given to emotional ups and downs.  When you encounter a red car on the highway, keep in mind that those people can be aggressive and impulsive.

Yes, Mr. Red Porsche, with a vanity liscense plate that read "1UPONU" -- I one up one you -- I think holding up a hand-written sign that says "Move Over, Asshole" to a cautious 55-year-old woman driving a highly visible white car in the left lane is a tad aggressive, don't you think?
