If you’re wearing sunscreen properly, then by summer’s end, you should have to replace your favorite bottle, tube or powder. One of the things I find when I’m making recommendations on the sales floor is that my customers just aren’t wearing the right amount of sunscreen to stay protected against damaging UV rays. This is mainly in part to the fact they just haven’t found one they absolutely love applying. If this sounds a little bit like you, you may just need a little help finding the right sunscreen that bests suits you. With so many different formulas out there, it can make choosing the right product more stressful than it needs to be. I thought I’d break down some of my favorite sunscreen products to help you find the right one.
If you wear foundation, re-applying a sunscreen lotion won’t be happening. This doesn’t mean you should be satisfied with the small SPF your foundation has, especially if you’re looking to spend time outdoors. Powdered sunscreens make re-applying so much easier, plus it helps keep your makeup looking fresh. Colorscience, jane iredale cosmetics, Peter Thomas Roth and Eminence all carry sunscreen in powder form. The perfect addition to your makeup bag or tote, you’ll actually enjoy the re-applying process. A powdered sunscreen is also a perfect option for anyone with oily skin who dreads using lotion formulas.
