When it comes to a daily beauty routine, I’m not the type to sit at my vanity for 30+ minutes painting my face. But I do carve out a few moments each day to focus on cleansing, moisturizing, and then protecting my skin from the sun – especially in the summer months. If you want young-looking skin 10 or 20 years from now then it’s smart to protect it today. Here are the sunscreen products I keep on my beauty shelf to keep my skin looking and feeling fresh.
This little miracle in a tube is pretty much an anti-aging cream mixed with a powerful, mineral-rich sun protector. Seriously, what more could you ask for? The texture is lightweight and blends well with other products. I use it every morning and during humid months this cream has enough moisture to act as a day cream.
Next up is this super lightweight, oil-free, sun protector mist. It’s simple to use and absorbs into skin quickly. Just spray it over your moisturizer or foundation if you plan on wearing makeup. That’s right, unlike most sun care products, this gentle mist will be the last step in your beauty routine.
This product is meant to hydrate your skin and protect it from the harsh UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays). While it doesn’t contain any fragrance or parabens, it does come either tinted or un-tinted, depending on your preferences. I usually layer a moisturizer under this.
These disposable sunscreen wipes are perfect for your next vacation. Just pack the TSA-approved face and body wipes in your purse or carry-on luggage next time you’re about to soar to your hopefully-relaxing destination. Keep a few in your purse and car too for easy access.
I’m not going to sugarcoat this one – this stuff is expensive. But, seriously, this is one of the best skin care products in my arsenal. Use this alone as a day cream every morning.
In extreme heat and humidity, the last thing you want is to apply a heavy foundation just for it to start melting off my face in minutes. Instead, try this lightweight BB Cream. It has the perfect amount of coverage and the additional SPF benefit to help you look and stay younger.
