Every year, without fail, Memorial Day weekend sneaks up on me. And there I am, pasty pale legs, finding out I’m going to a barbecue and oh, who knew, they have a pool. This year I plan to resolve that by stocking up on Hampton Sun’s SPF 4 Sun Tanning Oil. It’s a silky spray with a sheer shine that hydrates and protects while activating a little tanning. I might also try their SPF 8 Bronze Continuous Mist Sunscreen, for an instant last-minute bronze glow. (Don’t worry, Mom, I’m still using SPF 80 on my face!) If you’re in East Hampton, you can find a full range of their products right at White’s Pharmacy, 81 Main St., East Hampton. Otherwise, for online shopping and a list of other carriers, visit hamptonsuncare.com.
