This is the summer of sun. We basically have to be outside for any type of social activity these days so let’s get our SPF (and masks!) on! I have been spending a ton of time at the beach with family and friends in San Diego and in LA which is why I have been slathering on a litany of sunscreens. Here are some of my top picks:
Supergoop: I love all Supergoop products. I love the Unseen Sunscreen for my face b/c it just melts into your skin and provides all day coverage. Also, Supergoop is pretty much my everyday body sunscreen too. I like that you can get it in a massive pump size—I just set the bottle out outside on a table and since the kids can give it a pump themselves, we tend to reapply more throughout the day. It’s so handy.
Luzern: This is a Swiss brand that was recommended by my aesthetician Lili Mineni and I really am enjoying it. It is a 100% mineral sunscreen for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and also has anti-blue light that helps shield skin against free radical damage.
Derm Institute: I bought this at Space NK and they told me that they literally cannot keep it in stock. It is a tinted SPF and it basically serves as the base for the best bare, no-makeup face. What sets it apart is that it contains an innovative 2-in-1 illuminating moisturizer and sunscreen. Plus, its nourishing formula contributes towards improved collagen composition for firmer, suppler skin.
Josh Rosebrook: I got this clean SPF when I was in NYC and bought it upon recommendation from Tara Foley, founder of clean beauty mecca, Follain. It does not disappoint. It’s light, tinted, and best of all, good for the skin we’re in! I also love that it adds protection without weight, blending to a matte finish on contact. It’s an ideal daily base layer for makeup and reduces redness too.
