It should be time to replenish your sunscreen supply
If you’ve been a good girl about applying your sunscreen this summer—both every day and when having fun in the sun—you should be due for restocking. I recently added two new sun-protection products into my rotation, and I’m enjoying them so much I figured they might be able to supplement your stash as well.
Eau Thermale Avene Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50+
No joke, this might be one of my favorite sunscreens ever, and I’ve lost count of the number of compliments I’ve received on my skin while wearing it (without makeup!). The universal tint delivers enough coverage to even out my skin tone and leaves my skin dewy and oh-so radiant to boot. In addition to 100% mineral UV filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide), vitamin E for an extra antioxidant boost and Avene’s soothing mineral-rich spring water, this featherweight formula is also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes while being super-gentle on the skin. If I had to rate it on a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give it an 11.
DermaQuest SheerZinc SPF 30
Another 100% mineral-based option (since I’m steering clear of chemical-based sunscreen ingredients), this is my go-to when I wear makeup, whether my AmorePacific Cushion Compact, It Cosmetics CC Cream or Charlotte Tilbury foundation. The hydrating lotion helps prep and plump my skin, requires zero extra rubbing to avoid the white cast associated with some zinc oxide sunscreens, and it absorbs so quickly that I’ve almost forgotten that I’ve already applied it on several occasions. I also like that it provides extra protection against infrared rays (the ones that cause the sensation of heat on your skin) because saying that it’s been hot would be an understatement. Best of all, it won’t bring on breakouts or irritate sensitive skin (and it’s ideal for those who use retinol or a retinoid at night). P.S. It’s so good that it’s currently out of stock on the DermaQuest website, but I tracked it down for you here.)
