You've no doubt already heard the whole "wear sunscreen everyday" spiel, but it can be hard to want to slather up your face knowing it could lead to wrecked make up and pimples. Finding good sunscreen to wear under makeup is tricky, but fortunately, by no means impossible. Isn't your gorgeous skin worth the effort?
It might take a little trial-and-error, but years from now when you're melanoma-free, you'll be so glad you took the time to find a sunscreen you actually wanted to put on your face everyday! And don't forget, there are plenty of ways beyond sunscreen to help protect your skin even more, like these 9 adorable sun hats, and UV-protection sunglasses.
The 9 sunscreens mentioned below have passed several tests. First, they had to not leave behind white streaks after application. Second, they couldn't be super greasy. Third, if they made powder foundation start to "clump" up in crevices, they were out! Last but not least, they had to actually have a substantial amount of SPF. Otherwise, what's the point in the first place?
So before you change your beauty routine for summer, put one of these sunscreens on first!
This super hydrating, Argan oil-infused sunscreen glides on your face like primer and smells so, so good and lightly floral thanks to green tea leaves.
Supergoop's serum is my go-to for daily use. I love that it's free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. As a girl with sensitive skin, it's a dream.
High in SPF and specifically designed for acne and rosacea-prone skin, this sunscreen is one you can slather on without worrying about aggravating breakouts. Also, that pink tube just makes me really happy.
This sunscreen from Kiehl's just wins in all departments. It smells good, goes on super lightweight, and dries nice and fast.
This bottle of sunshine is one of my favorites. Water and sweat-resistant, oil-free, and dermatologist tested.
Water resistant for up to 40 minutes at a time and super gentle on sensitive skin, Amarte's sunscreen just gets it right. It also has just a hint of pure mica, leaving your skin with a dewy but never greasy finish.
