I know we shouldnâ€™t be superficial at the beach. Protecting our precious skin and hair from the unrelenting sun is obviously more important. As if. Strutting around in a bathing suit under the (real or imagined) critical gaze of strangers is exactly when you want to look your best.
Look good while remaining hyper vigilant about sun protection with these editors’ favorites.
Swap your everyday foundation for Cliniqueâ€™s new City Block Oil-Free Face Protector with SPF 15 ($16). Itâ€™s chemical-free, incredibly lightweight, and subtly tinted, so it evens out your skin tone with a flawless, undetectable finish. It’s perfect for those with sensitive or oily skin. If youâ€™re extra concerned about excess oil, powder your nose with Clinique’s Derma White Powder Makeup SPF15 ($32).
Bronzer, like Physician’s Formula Solar Powder SPF 20 ($12.95), gives you that summer glow youâ€™re working so hard not to get naturally.
Instead of tying your hair up in a messy knot,or hiding it under a floppy hat, spray Ouidad Summer Shield ($22) onto curly hair to nourish locks and shield hair from damaging UV rays.
Protect delicate colored hair with Philip Kingsley’s ‘Swimcap’ ($35), an intense formula that guards against discoloration and damage from sun, chlorine, salt, water and wind. It also deep conditions, reducing dryness and frizz.
Keep your lips supple, subtle and protected with pur minerals Mineral Lip Tint SPF 15 ($16.50) that delivers a hint of color, natural sunblock, and hydrating moisturizers like olive oil, mango seed extract and cocoa seed butter.
