Keep safe: Three facial sunscreens you need this summer

Okay, we get it, it’s hot out.

I don’t know about you, but working in an office all day usually makes me want to get outside during the lunch hour to take in the weather and get a little sun (I’m awful at tanning). Since I invest a lot of time into a thorough skincare routine morning and night, I am very conscious of my face getting too much sun since I would hate to have wrinkles and sun damage early on in life, especially now that i’ve hit 30.

Whether it’s using a moisturizer with a SPF in it, a facial sunscreen, or a foundation with an SPF included, it’s super important that you up your skincare game this season since it’ll help your skin out in the long run.

Here are my top three picks for facial sunscreens this summer.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Presswork Soft Focus Veil Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Presswork Soft Focus Veil Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen

Apply this facial sunscreen by itself or as a foundation primer to create a photo-filtered, soft-focus effect that blurs the look of pores and baby lines. The breathable, lightweight formula gives you a natural-looking tint and contain 100 per cent mineral-based sunscreen so it’s good for you as well.  Since the formula adapts to your skin tone, it’s universal and can be worn by pretty much anyone, regardless of your shade of skin (so your friends can wear it as well).

Throw it in your beach bag or apply it prior to heading to the office for coverage that lasts all day.

Indeed Laboratories InDefense 30 Sunscreen

This sunscreen from Canadian brand Indeed Laboratories is brand new and perfect to throw in your beach bag this summer. The tube is quite small, so you may want to concentrate the product to just your face, but I’m sure you can use it elsewhere as well.

The formula includes antioxidants in it which help to prevent environmental damage and the zinc oxide prevents sun damage. Since the zinc oxide typically leaves a white cast on your face, layer this underneath your foundation and no one will know the wiser.

You can find it online via their site, where they ship to Canada and the United States. I’m also told they sell this at Shoppers Drug Mart as well.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Moisturizing and Protecting with Sunscreen

Okay, so truth be told, I’m not exactly sure if Olay is still making this product, but this double-whammy moisturizer from the brand has been a favourite of mine for years.

Full of antioxidants vitamin E and green tea, this day cream helps you get a flawless complexion, even skin tone, and has an SPF of 20 in it. This is always my go-to for mornings where I know I’m heading to the pool later since it’s so easy to slather on and I need to apply a moisturizer anyways.

Unfortunately I can’t find much about this online, but I believe that the brand recently replaced it with their Whips formula (which I have tried and loved). It sounds the same except has a light-as-air finish and it’s also made with Active Rush Technology to transform the cream to liquid on the skin for a nice little refresher and instant absorption.

The brand has a few different formulas of their Whips, but I’m glad they kept this one since this moisturizer is seriously perfect for summertime (and any other time of the year since you should be wearing a facial sunscreen, regardless of the weather).

Whether it’s a moisturizer with a sunscreen, a OG sunblock, or a foundation that contains SPF, with the weather being so hot, you should definitely be slathering on something that will protect your skin from the sun. I would love to know what you guys use for the summertime as I’m always on the lookout for new products as well.
