Top products for your hair, face and body to protect you from sun damage.
It’s time for backyard barbecues, days at the beach — and stocking up on beauty products that offer maximum UV protection.
To help keep you safe from sun damage, we’ve rounded up top products for your hair, face and body.
LIGHT AS A FEATHER
Say goodbye to the thick, greasy sunscreens of yesteryear and hello to Shiseido’s Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42 ($33 at Nordstrom). The lightweight, oil-free sunscreen helps safeguard your face against UV rays and other daily environmental aggressors.
COVER IT UP
Worn in tandem with a daily sunscreen, SPF-infused concealer helps protect the delicate skin under your eyes from damage that can cause fine lines. One of our favorite options is the BareMinerals Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($21 at Sephora), which combines a full-coverage concealer with SPF protection.
Reapplying traditional sunscreen over a full face of makeup during the day can be problematic. Thankfully, Supergoop’s Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 ($30 at supergoop.com) offers a more convenient solution. The sweat-resistant mineral powder allows you to refresh your UV protection without disturbing your makeup.
BEST FACE FORWARD
One of the easiest ways to add extra UV protection to your beauty routine is by opting for a foundation formulated with built-in SPF. Available in seven shades, the popular IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream ($38 at Sephora) contains SPF 50+ and has a lightweight feel that is perfect for hot, humid days.
Often overlooked, hair-care products with UV protection are vital to help prevent hair from turning dry and brittle during the summer season. To keep your locks in tip-top condition, look for products like the IGK 1995 2-in-1 Shampoo & Texturizer ($25 at Sephora), which offers UV and heat protection.
Excessive exposure to the sun can wreak havoc on color-treated hair. To ensure that your tresses don’t end up looking brassy and dull after a day at the pool, try the new Macadamia Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil ($20 at macadamiahair.com). The pre-sun treatment spray is formulated with a combination of oils and nutrients to help minimize dryness, damage and loss of color.
PROTECT YOUR POUT
Keep your lips hydrated, and shielded from harmful UV rays, by swiping on Perricone MD’s No Lipstick Lipstick SPF 15 ($30 at perriconemd.com). Packed with neuropeptides that restore suppleness and fullness, the anti-aging lip treatment comes in a natural rosy tint that is perfect for the beach or the office.
