Whether your skincare concerns are acne or anti-aging, there’s only one skincare ingredient you need this summer- and all-year-round: SPF.
Aside from preventing dreadful sunburns, SPF works to protect your skin from the negative long-term effects of UVA and UVB rays and even rewinds the signs of fine lines and stubborn darks spots.
Thanks to dermatologist-backed research, the new generation of sunscreens are making everyday wear a breeze, especially for the skincare rookie. We’re talking weightless and streak-free coverage with or without makeup.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current skin routine or simply hate the heavy feel of old-school sunscreen, we’ve rounded up the game-changing face sunscreens that we guarantee you’ll love.
