We’ve all heard about the harmful effects the sun can have on our skin, and we know we should apply sunscreen every day. So what are the best brands and products for keeping our skin safe and looking radiant at the same time? I have a handful of sunscreen soulmates that I regularly recommend—and I’m excited to share the love!
Image Skincare is one of my favorite skincare lines, and their products have become a forever fave for sun protection. These products come with UVA, UVB and infrared protection and are made with organic ingredients like agave leaf extract, jojoba oil, and goji berry, a powerful antioxidant.
The following products have made their way to my recommended summer shopping list (especially because we have them at Cole’s!).
Here’s a little more info about them:
- Daily Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 30 for dry/sensitive skin
- Daily Matte Moisturizer SPF 32 for oily skin
- Daily Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 for those looking for even skin tone and healthy glow
- Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer SPF 50 for those who need extra protection.
All products are broad spectrum, prevent free radical damage, and help with slowing down the aging process also skin cancer.
Practice Comprehensive Protection
Remember, sunscreen is only one way to protect your skin from harmful UV exposure and no sunscreen provides 100% protection. So to be as safe as possible, we recommend a comprehensive approach to skin protection, including: avoiding the sun when UV light is the strongest (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.), seeking shade whenever possible, wearing protective clothing such as long sleeves, pants, wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses, and applying broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every few hours.
Love your skin, and it will love you back!
