While it may not be the summer we’d envisioned, we’re grateful that we’re still able to spend some time in the sun soaking in some much-needed vitamin D. Double gratitude for skin safety made easy with pocket-or-purse-sized SPF via these top sunscreen picks. —Vicki Duong
supergoop! Need an SPF touch up but don’t want to ruin your makeup? Try Supergoop! (Re)setting 100$ Mineral Powder SPF 45 ($40) for sun protection that also matte-ifies shine. Plus, this product comes with a built-in brush to help set your makeup.
first aid beauty. We love a multi-tasking product. First Aid Beauty Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 ($45) has been a favourite this summer for those no-makeup sun-soaking days. The mineral formula provides broad-spectrum protection and the sheer tint blends seamlessly with a multitude of skin tones.
la roche-posay. Perfect for tight spots (around the ears and along the scalp line), a stick sunscreen allows for precise application in an easy-to-use format. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Targeted Protection SPF 60 ($21) offers both UVA and UVB protection, and a compact size that makes it ideal for on-the-go summer days.
salt & stone. Lips need sun protection, too! Our lips tend to get parched in the sun and traditional balms without SPF can leave our peckers with a sunburnn. We love Salt & Stone SPF 30 Lip Balm ($7)—not only does it protect our lips, it also hydrates with ingredients like shea butter and sweet almond oil.
pūrlisse. While sun protection is number 1 when it comes to skin health, hydration comes in at a close second. Pūrlisse Blue Lotus Daily Moisturizer ($35) has become a year-round staple for us due to its powerhouse ingredient list. Not only does it provide SPF 30 protection, but it has blue lotus for anti-inflammatory benefits and soy to keep skin hydrated. Best of all? No white residue!
