Since we are already in the midst of summer, it is more than important to slip-slop-slap before heading out into the hot sun.
While most sunscreens can feel super-greasy and cast a white shadow on both the face and body, there are a few select products which are worth the extra dollars.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Extreme Fluid, $27.99
A lightweight, holy grail formula which has been used for years on movie sets, photo-shoots, and even on a daily basis. Apply a thin layer under your makeup to protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and possible sun damage.
Sisley Paris Super Stick Solaire Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, $163
While this might seem a little excessive for a sunscreen – you can never be too safe with your skincare! The holly grail formula comes in both a nude and colourless shade for discrete protection during the summer. Apply over the lips, nose, cheekbones, and around the eyes for best results.
Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA, $80
A powerful antioxidant-rich formula ideal for men and women who want a grease-free finish which is also waterproof. Apply generously over the face, neck, and entire body to keep your skin safe against potential sun damage.
You, Me and Everybody Shady Lady Daily Dace Milk SPF 30, $19.99
Protect your skin from sun damage by applying a pea-sized amount of this product under your makeup. The grease-free formula is perfect for those who already suffer from oily skin, since it won’t interfere with your current routine. Feel free to apply to to your neck, chest, and other areas exposed to the sun.
Clinique City Block Sheer SPF 25, $36
One of the best sheer, broad-spectrum SPF formulas which is gentle on skin, and won’t clog your pores. Use on the delicate areas of your skin such as the mouth and around the eyes for extra protection against the sun.
