Remember, girls: These awesome items make great additions to your summer beauty arsenal but do not in any way, shape or form replace good old fashioned sunscreen! Please, please, PLEASE make sure to always apply the highest possible sunscreen when stepping out in that sexy, summer sun (especially for extended periods of time). Also, be sure to up the SPF factor in your daily face and body moisturizer, too!
