Now that summer is just around the corner, it’s time to make sure we are protecting ourselves from the sun. Everyone, I repeat, everyone should wear sunscreen. It not only helps prevent sunburn and skin cancer, but also reduces premature aging due to sun exposure. So, basically this is a must-have year round, but especially in the warmer months when we tend to spend even more time outdoors. Luckily, companies have really become more advanced in developing sunscreen, so no matter your skin concerns or lifestyle, you will find something that works for you.
1. Stand Alone Facial Sunscreen
Clarins Uv Plus Hp Anti-pollution Sunscreen Multi-protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50 1.7fl.oz/50ml I love this sunscreen because it is very light and offers high sun protection. I have sensitive skin and this has never irritated me at all. I also love that it dries to a satin finish. One drawback is that sometimes this can leave a slight white cast on darker skins, but the formula blends easily with foundations, so you can blend it in with your foundation to avoid this issue.
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ 1.7oz (50ml)This is a more affordable option that also offers high SPF. This dries to a matte finish so it’s great for people with oily skin.
Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40 40ml/1.4oz This has a thicker texture that leaves a bit of a shiny finish, so this would probably be better for those with dry skin. It doesn’t irritate the skin, though, and it is affordable.
2. Moisturizer with SPF
Estee Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15 I like this product because it has a pretty good level of sun protection, plus anti-oxidants, which help prevent sun damage. This moisturizer is great for normal skin.
Ultra Facial Cream 1.7 Oz This is a more basic moisturizer so it’s better for sensitive skin.
Clinique EVEN BETTER skin tone correcting moisturizer SPF20 50m I’ve been wearing this lately and loving it. It moisturizer nicely and while it doesn’t have a matte finish, it doesn’t leave my skin too shiny either. I’ve had no problems with it irritating my skin either.
3. Primers or Sprays with SPF.
MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base 30ml/1.0oz This is great if you wear makeup every day because you’re combining sun protection with priming your skin for makeup. The high SPF and antioxidants combine to provide great protection for the skin too.
Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C SPF 50, 6 fl. oz. This is my favorite of the bunch because you can easily add this to your skincare routine. I apply this before I go running outside and have had no problem with it stinging my eyes when I sweat. This is also great to refresh your makeup before you head outdoors. I love that this product makes it easy to reapply SPF throughout the day, which is the best way to protect your skin.
NARS by Nars Pro Prime Multi Protect Primer SPF30 Sunscreen/PA+++ –30ml/1oz for WOMEN (Package Of 2) This is another awesome primer that blends easily into the skin and makes a great foundation for makeup.
