Does it scare you when you hear that we should be wearing SPF (especially on our face) every day? Whether you are headed to the beach or the boardroom it’s important to protect your skin. Good news for us…sun protection has evolved. Gone are the days where our only option for sun protection is a chalky, chemical-laden lotion that leaves your skin feeling sticky. Many makeup and skincare products offer safe SPF solutions. I love a multi-purpose product, and I double love a product that brings me a solution to a problem…like wearing SPF every day. Alas, I bring to you my tried and true, top SPF beauty products.
spf beauty faves: 7 top beauty and skincare products for daily spf protection
I love this sunscreen because it offers full protection from sun and digital rays (you know, that screen we stare at all day). It glides on smoothly and does not leave a chalky residue.
Another good safe beauty SPF option! This one also glides on clear and is great for everyday wear. I have one of the small travel sizes I like to keep in my purse or work bag while on the go.
SPF Foundation and tinted moisturizers
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20/ This is my go-to for the foundation on days where I don’t need a full face of makeup (so, almost every day). It’s light, creamy, and leaves the prettiest subtle glow on the skin. Packed with extra ingredients like Vitamin C and Peony Root Extract, this product works triple time providing coverage, protection from the sun all while brightening and evening skin tone – yes, please!
Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 / Offering more SPF coverage, this Ilia skin serum is another staple in my routine. The tinted serum is a little heavier than the Dew Skin and can be built upon to offer more coverage. This is my go-to for days when I am doing a bit of a fuller face of makeup.
powders with spf
Keeping a finishing powder with SPF on hand is an easy way to refresh your coverage throughout the day. After I put on the foundation I like to finish it all off with a loose powder to help with shine and “seal” the look. Bonus points if that powder offers SPF.
Flow-Thru Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 / Keep this little beauty in your purse or work bag. Perfect for being on the go and refreshing both your makeup and SPF protection.
bareMineral Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 25 / As someone who tends to have an oily t-zone, this finishing powder is a must! bareMineral’s finishing powder does a great job of helping combat oil while offering SPF 25.
favorite spf for full body protection
Beautycounter’s Countersun line is my go-to for full-body SPF. Choose a mist or a cream, there’s even a tinted option for a little extra glow while at the beach! This full line of mineral sunscreen options is safe for you and our eco-systems as mineral sunscreen will not harm the coral reef systems like chemical sunscreens.
