As much as we love the brightness, warmth and vitamin D it bestows upon us, we’re not into the damage it can do to our skin. You know what we’re talking about: sunburns, premature wrinkles, sun spots, chafing, and don’t even get us started on the unsightly sweat. Worse yet, this frenemy of ours doesn’t limit its exposure to the summer months. Oh, no. Its rays are on us all year round.
To keep you protected year-round, we’ve identified the best sun protection beauty products to use, regardless of the season.
We’re calling on the help of six, SPF-formulated beauty products to give that sun the fight of its life … all year long.
We can’t think of anything better than a sunscreen that also helps fight oil. Can you say win-win? Well, this magical, tinted sunscreen delivers an SPF of 50, along with a mattifying finish that will help keep you shine-free all day, every day.
We go weak in the knees as soon as we hear “blur.” The word just brings up visions of poreless, perfect skin. Add in a dose of SPF 20, and we’re floating on Cloud 9. In fact, one of our very own editor’s was gifted a sample and gushed about the magic of this beautifying formula. See what she had to say about La Roche Posay’s BB Blur!
Forget the two-fer, this is a three-fer! Not only does it keep skin hydrated but it also protects from the sun’s damaging rays with SPF of 30. Plus the oil-infused lotion leaves your skin looking glowy and radiant. Yes, please!
When you think sun protection, you automatically think about your face, right? Little did you know, lips are one of the most important regions to keep protected, as well as the most easily forgotten. Dry, chapped and sun-ravaged lips don’t make for an ideal lipstick canvas, so do your due diligence, and keep them protected with a lip balm formulated with SPF.
The sun is one of the leading culprits of premature skin aging. Give that big, yellow thing in the sky something to sweat about by investing in a day lotion that packs sun protection and helps skin with anti-aging properties. You’re shaking in your boots, aren’t ya, Sun?
