Do you find that your face often looks red, blotchy, and even itchy after a day out in the sun? This is probably because you’re not wearing enough SPF – even when the sun isn’t shining!
To protect your skin on a daily basis, use a foundation with at least 20+ SPF, or layer one of your favourites under your usual makeup for extra protection.
Dr Jart Gold Label Premium Beauty Balm, $58.41
Featuring medium coverage and an SPF of 45+, this is the perfect BB cream to use on a daily basis. The formula is lightweight, so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing layers of makeup, and is ideal for all skin types.
If your face is on the oily side, remember to use a translucent setting powder before leaving the house.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20, $59
If you’re looking for something with a little less coverage for the office, then a tinted moisturiser is the best option. They come in many different colours to suit your skin tone (you can also blend them to create a bespoke shade).
Most tinted moisturisers can also be applied without brushes, so they’re easy to keep in your handbag if you’re on-the-go.
MAC MatchMaster SPF 15 Foundation, $59
For something a little more full coverage, try the reliable MatchMaster by MAC Cosmetics. This is the best product for an outdoor wedding, pool party, or even gathering during the warmer months.
The foundation might feel a little dehydrating for dry skin tones, so make sure to apply a nourishing serum underneath.
La Roche-Pose Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Extreme Fluid, $27.99
One of the best drugstore sunscreens without that terrible white caste has to be Anthelios by La Roche-Posay. Not only does it layer well under your makeup, but it provides your skin with an SPF of 50+ and protection against UVA and UVB rays.
