Don’t let the summer sun get the best of you, HollywoodLifers! It’s so important to wear SPF every day to prevent skin cancer and premature aging. With your health in mind, we’re bringing you the best SPF infused makeup so it won’t seem like a chore.
To some of you, summer may mean laying out at the beach and working on your tan. But to us here in the HollywoodLife beauty department, it means stocking up on our favorite sunscreen beauty products! Since SPF goes such a long way towards preventing deadly melanoma and is the best way to guard against signs of premature aging, we think it’s our duty to share with you some great beauty products that help you stay protected out in the sun. With our recommendations you’ll be sure to look great all day — no matter what the UV index throws your way.
SPF Makeup — Favorite Foundations
To ensure that your entire face is protected from harmful UV rays, we suggest using a foundation or tinted moisturizer that offers SPF coverage. If you’re looking for full coverage, we suggest Merle Norman Perfecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 25. This foundation provides an air brushed finish while not being heavy or cakey in any way. We also love Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer for a more medium coverage. This tinted moisturizer reduces the appearance of fine lines while also providing hydration to combat the effects of sun damage.
Sunscreen Face Powders
To top off your foundation, try a finishing powder with SPF. We big fans of Brush on Block, a powder version of sunscreen that you can brush on after you apply your face makeup. It’s perfect if you’re worried that adding sunscreen underneath makeup could potentially look greasy. Plus, it’s super easy to reapply throughout the day. Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF does the same while nourishing the skin and providing a hint of color with UVA and UVB protection.
SPF For Eyes & Lips
Your forehead and cheeks aren’t the only part of your face that need sun protection! It’s so important to make sure your eyes and lips are covered in SPF, because they are just as exposed to the sun as any other part of your face. For a glossy lip that also offers SPF, try Kaplan MD Lip 20 Treatment Gloss. This lip gloss is a full anti-aging treatment for lips — it moisturizes and repairs sun damage while preventing future skin damage. To protect your delicate under eye area, use Soleil Organique Environmental Defense Eye Therapy SPF 15 to hydrate and protect.
