Summer In The Desert

Summer is in full swing here in Arizona and we’re doing what we can to avoid prolonged time in the sun. It’s not always easy living in the desert but we know how to make the most of these scorching hot temps. Sunrise hikes, afternoons in the pool, and Arizona skincare make these few short months fun!

Desert Summers Require Extra Skincare

Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated in the summer is not an easy task. Depending on your skin type and climate you live in, you could be putting yourself at risk for skin cancer more than you may realize. Living in the desert without a proper suncare routine easily leads to sunburn and a greater risk of skin cancer. Even if you tan easily and rarely burn, your skin needs to stay hydrated with the help of Arizona Sun sunscreen. Having a few bottles of your go-to sunscreen from our product line in your pool bag, car, and bathroom help make it a routine to always apply throughout the day. 


For the summer months, Arizona Sun SPF 45 Water Resistant Spray is the best option for an active day. This formula sprays on clean and dries in seconds. Not only does it provide sun protection, it also acts as a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated in the sun. Hydrating ingredients are often overlooked when it comes to drugstore sunscreens. If you’ve noticed your skin feeling dry after using one, they likely don’t have enough moisturizers in them. Arizona Sun uses Vitamin E, cacti, and aloe vera in our sunscreens, all of which aid in locking in moisture. 

Arizona Native Ingredients For Protection and Relief

Using ingredients native to Arizona is what makes Arizona Sun unlike any other suncare company. We take pride in our carefully selected ingredients to ensure your skin is left feeling soft and smooth with every product of ours you try. 

Aloe vera is one of the southwest’s best remedies for healing, not just sunburn, but cuts, bug bites, and even razor burn. Arizona Sun Sunburn Relief with Aloe Vera is the perfect follow up to any sun exposure. Even if you don’t feel sunburnt, your skin benefits from the cooling effects of aloe vera. The extract from cactus seeds is rich in antioxidants and has been proven to aid in sun protection as well. 

Sunscreen for Different Occasions 

All of our sunscreen products are made with the same hydrating ingredients but of course, there are certain ones you’ll want for different occasions. Arizona Sun SPF 15 is a great daily sunscreen if you don’t plan on being out in the sun for a prolonged period of time. Even if you’re just running errands, the small amount of time you spend in the sun adds up, which is why you want to have a daily sunscreen that you apply every morning and throughout the day. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, try Arizona Sun Oil-Free SPF 30. It’s lightweight, nongreasy, and has the protection you need for a busy day in and out of the sun. If you do plan on being outside for a long time, whether it’s for hikes, running, or laying out by the pool, we suggest Arizona Sun Water Resistant SPF 45 Spray. This spray formula dries quickly and stays on through hot and humid adventures. No matter what sunscreen you choose, it’s important to reapply every 2 hours, especially if you’re living in Arizona!
