Every skin care obsessee knows that wearing SPF under your face makeup is really important all months of the year. And when the sun is out in full force, it’s a must.
However, balmy weather generally calls for lighter foundation, which doesn’t always offer as much sun protection. Tinted moisturizer can be your best friend, but because it’s so lightweight, you’ll want to double up on your SPF with a sunscreen serum underneath.
Start by switching your daily foundation to a tinted moisturizer — we love the Lancôme Skin Feels Good Tinted Moisturizer for a weightless finish. Skin Feels Good is not only super hydrating (it legit revitalizes any dry or rough patches in an instant), it also has SPF 23 for an extra boost of sun protection.
To really bring out the best of this makeup, layer it over La Roche Posay Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum with Sunscreen SPF 50. This sunscreen is a smooth serum that glides on easily and primes your skin for the tinted moisturizer — or you can even mix them together before applying to create a double duty sun shield. Either way, wearing any face makeup in the summer isn’t complete without ensuring that your skin is as protected as possible, and if that means to double or triple up on the SPF, so be it — your face will thank us later😉.
