Mom was right: as we get ready to spend long summer days in the sun, keeping our precious skin safe is essential to reducing sun damage and signs of ageing. In addition to applying antioxidants in the morning, active serums at night and staying hydrated, incorporating SPF into a beauty routine is a key for sun protected skin. Look on the bright side: our favourite beauty brands make it easy to remember SPF while enhancing makeup looks. The products below can be incorporated into a morning beauty routine, then packed in a purse to reapplied throughout the day. With National Sunscreen Day on May 27, pick up our SPF favourites below and enjoy long-lasting wearing throughout the summer! —Julia Dumbrell

With SPF 50, the Anthelios Age Correct from La Roche-Posay Canada is a new generation of anti-aging skincare, correcting and protecting skin while reducing signs of ageing in just 4 weeks ($55).
