Protect Your Face From Summer Sun

Ladies, it’s hot.  And as we’re only in the beginning of the summer, it’s easy to get burned.


Instead of having a sweaty mess of make-up that doesn’t protect your face, it’s good to use make-up that includes sun protection.   Because I don’t know about you all but while I rarely forget to put suntan lotion on my kids, I often forget myself.  I like using something each morning on my face that I know will help protect me in the inevitable event that I forget to put my own suntan lotion on later.

Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer is fabulous. 

One tube lasts a long time as you only need the smallest amount.  It’s SPF 20 and is very lightweight.  There’s nothing worse than a makeup product that leaves you feeling like you have a layer of grease on your face.  I love how light this moisturizer is. Just $42.

Bobbi Brown also makes a Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15. It has vitamins A and C to help with sun damage on the face and there are tons of skin tones available.  Get it for $40.

Nars Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer is SPF 30.  It works with all skin types.  Get it for $32.

Neutrogena’s 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes offers SPF 20.  Get it for $8.29.

What’s not to love about Clinique’s Long Last Glosswear with SPF 15?  It has sun protection and offers up to 8 hours of lasting shine.  $14 with tons of shades available.
