Summer Skin Protection We Love
by Amanda Lederman
Spend your summer on the beach, in the park, or commuting to work without worrying about skin damage.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite sunscreens, mists, oils, sticks, and more to add to your summer and daily skin routine!
If summer is our prince charming, sunscreen is the white horse he rides in on to rescue us from winter. Not that we need rescuing — just a fun analogy. However, our skin DOES need rescuing from the sun's harmful UVA(ging) and UVB(urning) rays and other unhealthful skin issues.
Let’s talk about SPF! Broad spectrum sunscreen protects against both signs of aging and sunburn. So, we’ve rounded up a few of our most treasured brands for skin protection. Don’t forget to apply these best-sellers and award-winners all over your face and body, all day, every day (even when the sun is not out)! Let these incredible products save your skin from damage and dryness.
Sun protection that also leaves your skin glowing? Count us in. All of Supergoop!’s products are fabulous; but we’re particularly into The Getaway & Glow Set for your summer vacations. The packaged duo includes their Glow Stick Sunscreen and Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil. Reviews of these products don’t lie, they’ll sink into your skin and leave you looking dewy, not sticky. Plus, the oil is super hydrating! Don’t pack your beach bag without including this set.
Naturally Serious Skin Care
It’s important to incorporate sunscreen into your daily routine. Naturally Serious makes it easy to add one more step to your morning ritual. Apply their New Mineral Sun Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, which has a universal tint that blends to match all skin types and tones, for extra SPF on your morning commute. Skincare and makeup go hand and hand, so a product that acts as both makes us do a happy dance.
Raise your hand if you hate dry and/or burnt lips! For lips that feel soft, never chapped and safe in the sun, try COOLA’s Mineral Liplux Organic Tinted Lip Balm Sunscreen. The balms add either a natural-looking feel or a pop of fun color while adding SPF 30 protection. We’re also fans of their staff favorite Classic Body Organic Sunscreen Spray which is currently on sale! If you purchase 3 or more of this favorite, you’ll get 10% off! Stock up for summer before they sell out.
Sensitive skin? This one’s for you! La Roche-Posay offers sunscreens for adults and children, from SPF 15 to 60. Btw, their Anthelios Clear Skin Oil Free Sunscreen has won awards from Glamour, Allure, and People, to name a few. Their products have been recommended by over 90,000 dermatologists worldwide, so definitely trust these guys with our skin!
When even your husband is willing to give this bad boy a try, you know it must be good. That’s what one reviewer said about Beautycounter’s Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist. For those who aren’t fans of lathering up, this mist sprays on white to help guide application, blends in easily, and dries quickly without oily residue. Added bonus, it’s water resistant and reef friendly!
We’re that fun kind of tipsy off of Drunk Elephant’s Umbra Sheer™ Physical Daily Defense. This cruelty-free Allure Readers’ Choice Award Winner provides all day protection with ingredient names we actually recognize. Reviewers say it lasts for months and is worth every penny! For a little tint and glow, try their Umbra Tinte™ Physical Daily Defense.
There are many things that make us click “add to cart”. Two important ones are sales and SPF. bareMinerals’ Friends and Family sale is happening from now until June 17th and our skin and wallets are ready! We’re definitely purchasing their New Skinlongevity® Vital Power Moisturizer Broad Spectrum. This product, based on their best selling serum, is perfect for women looking to achieve healthier and younger looking skin. Don’t forget to use code BAREBFFS in stores or online to secure their discount!
Sometimes, your OG skincare is really the best. We’ve been using Jergens’ products for years and don’t plan on putting them down anytime soon. For an everyday glow-up, we like their FACE Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20. It’s oil-free, lightweight, and gives you natural color— no sun required! Create your own sun-kissed skin without damage!
