It goes without saying that applying sunscreen is an essential step within any beauty routine. Offering protection against UV ray damage, sunscreen helps ward off skin cancer, premature aging, and more. So it never hurts to layer on SPF with your makeup. Investing in beauty products with SPF enriched formulas guarantees you'll have every bit of protection you need.
Though it's important to slather on sunscreen year-round, you've got to be on high alert during the summer months. You can never be too prepared when braving the elements, so makeup formulated with sunscreen adds extra doses of UV ray defense as you enjoy pool parties, barbecues, and other outdoor fun. There's always a foundation, lippie, or blush out there packing SPF. Even if only a little, any bit of skincare can make all of the difference— not to mention, beauty that doubles as sunscreen is super lazy-girl friendly.
Be mindful that makeup can never truly replace sunscreen, of course, but it does make your summer routine a whole lot easier. Block out the sun's harmful rays and look good while doing it when you work these 19 beauty products with built-in SPF into your makeup regimen.
