Keep your skin protected from the sun all day long
We all know that sun damage is one of the worst things we can let happen to our skin. Not only does it put us at risk for skin cancer, but it is one of the fastest ways to speed up the signs of aging, contributing to sun spots and wrinkles. When spending the day outdoors, we often forget to reapply (it’s recommended we reapply every two to four hours) and we may avoid doing so out of fear of messing up our carefully applied makeup. Thankfully the days of thick white lotions are long gone, with new products that are light and easy to reapply. Here are our top-four sunscreen products, along with tips on how to use the skin saving potions throughout the day.
Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50, $64, available at select salons and dermalogica.ca. This oil-free product can be added to your existing moisturizer, or even your foundation, to add sun protection at the beginning of the day and when touching up.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60 Ultra-Fluid Lotion, $26, available at select drug stores. The fast-absorbing, matte finish, weight-less, and water-resistant formula works ideal as a makeup base for everyday, particularly if you’re only outdoors for brief periods in the city.
SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50, $39. This paraben-free formula utilizes a mineral filter, making it the last thing you put on your face. The universal tint blends into your skin for light coverage and works well over makeup.
