Can sun protection be fashionable?
You know better than to leave the house without sunscreen (you do know that, right?), but if you're concerned about looking like the stereotypical lifeguard of days past, fear not. Sun protection has come a long way since the tell-tale smudge of white gunk on your nose.
Thanks to new technology, there are several paths to broad-spectrum sun protection that are not only effective, but cosmetically elegant as well. Many daily moisturizers contain SPFs of at least 15. If you’d like a bit more protection, try SkinMedica TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer SPF 20. Colorescience's SunForgettable line offers SPF 30 in convenient brush, powder puff and roll-on applicators.
If you don't want to add yet another step to your morning regimen, bareMinerals Foundations all have an SPF of 15. Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle Instant Mineral SPF30 glides on over makeup, provides anti-aging benefits and will have you out the door after a few quick swipes of the applicator brush.
Get out there and have your fun in the sun—just make sure you give your skin a fighting chance against the elements.
