“I could barely keep up with you” said my husband. True story 😉 but for real, I get so into kayaking I love it so much! My dad had a kayak when I was growing up and we always thought it was fun to put it in our pool or take it to the retention basin when it rained and filled up with water. We also took it out when camping and I loved to do races in it. Also, you can’t beat the feeling of how GOOD your arms feel after a good kayaking session.
When we first moved to Oahu, I started paying close attention to what sunscreen everyone was using and I would always ask my friends for their favorites. Three people in a row recommended Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion, so I went and got some and have loved it since. Then, fast forward to when they wanted to work with me and wanted me to try their new Sports BB WetForce SPF 50+ product. I generally feel better when I have a bit of coverage on my face – but I don’t like to look like I am wearing make up when working out or at the beach. This dual sunscreen and BB cream is the perfect in-between because it does have coverage but it’s so natural looking. The best part is that it is truly sweat and waterproof, so I can wear it for runs on the beach or to go surf and it is really long lasting. The formula is actually more effective when exposed to water or perspiration. It has three shades to choose from and it blends to make your skin look nice and healthy. Lately anytime you have seen me on Insta stories with little make up (like when we went and did that waterfall hike!), I am only wearing this and nothing else. I kind of am obsessed with it because I feel fresh faced while wearing it but it helps to cover some of my dark spots and gives me SPF. It’s so great to enjoy all this beauty without having to be worried about sun damage.
That day we kayaked out to Chinaman’s Hat Island and the wind was not working in our favor, which gave us an extra good arm work out. When we got to the island, we parked our kayaks and hiked to the top of the island – it was insanely beautiful up there!!! And we were the only ones up there which always makes the experience more enjoyable.
