We wanna soak up the sun (sensibly)!
Sun protection doesn’t necessarily mean dousing yourself in thick white sunscreen every time you step out the door – especially when you’re wearing SPF 24/7, 365.
Here are some of the products the FOREO team loves for incorporating a bit of sun protection into their every day routine!
Used by: Federica Pizzinato, Junior Product Development Specialist – Light olive skin that burns easily.
“I love how it uses sunflower, tea tree & olive fruit oils to help it be moisturizing. I also use it on my face!”
This spray gel sunscreen does double duty – it not only offers 80 minutes of water-resistant protection, it also acts as instant bronzer, so you won’t feel like you’re missing out on tan opportunities by being sun-sensible.
Used by: Lane Baumeister, Managing Editor – Medium olive skin, tans easily & almost never burns
Cetaphil is a popular drugstore standby that’s a saviour to sensitive skin-havers (and anyone who wants to avoid fragrance). I first started using their Gentle Skin Cleanser both for my face and as piercing care in my teens – when I assumed my never-burn complexion didn’t require sunscreen unless I was at the beach. I’m older and wise now, so I wear this light moisturizer on my face and neck every day; it’s the perfect weight and doesn’t cause any breakouts!
Used by: Andrea Rey de Viñas, Digital Marketing Specialist – Medium fair skin, burns easily
“I’m absolutely in love with this gloss, which I’ve been using for a year. It smells and tastes like berries and gives a nice tough of color to the lips!”
Love a liquid gloss to lend your look some sweet scented shine in the summer? Then this might be the one for you. Made by your fave sunscreen brand, Hawaiian Tropic, it ,has slick-not-sticky gloss has a yummy fruit scent and SPF 20 sun protection!
Used by: Katie Steadman, Senior Creative Content Specialist – Medium-fair skin, burns sometimes.
“I like to err on the side of caution when it comes to sun protection – especially on my face and neck – so I like its heavy-duty SPF.”
Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution gives you everything you need for saving your skin while living in the big city – SPF 50 and protection from all the wrinkle-causing toxins in the big-city air. Hot tip: it also comes in a tinted formula if you’re looking for a true one-stop shop.
Used by: Juanita Salcedo, Product Specialist – Medium fair skin, burns easily.
“I love that it’s light and not shiny at all.”
Promising a ‘dry-touch’ texture, La Roche-Posay Clear Skin Sunscreen is made for those whose oily skin goes into serious overdrive in the summer. Fragrance, oil and paraben-free, it’s easy to see why this facial sunscreen is a winner. And, if you’re looking for other types of protection, the whole Anthelios line was developed with sensitive skin in mind – it’s even great for kids!
