6 Sunscreens Every Woman Over 40 Should Be Using

June 18, 2018 by Emily Belfiore
shefinds | beauty

Sunscreen is, without a doubt, the most important step in every skincare routine. Everyone at every age should be wearing sunscreen, but it’s not until you’re 40 and older that you really start to see the damage from not using it.

“Many people, especially younger men and women, do not realize the skin-damaging effects the sun can have,” according to the experts at Knox Dermatology. “The ugly head of sun damage does not rear its head till people are much older and by then the effects cannot be reversed. Sun damage can lead to more than just prematurely aged skin, it can lead to skin cancer.”

But, not every sunscreen will help keep you and your skin protected. The American Cancer Society recommends using sunscreens with broad-spectrum protection to help prevent damage from UVA and UVB rays and a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher.

Here are the best sunscreens that every woman over 40 should be using:

olay regenerist sunscreen

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream With Sunscreen ($19.99) 

 

This powerful anti-aging face moisturizer contains SPF 30 and helps hydrate skin to promote its regeneration. The formula uses the brand's Amino-Peptide Complex, which delivers anti-aging ingredients deep into the skin's surface to blur wrinkles in as little as 1 day. 

Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 ($36) 

 

This tinted, physical sunscreen delivers powerful broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and helps aid in the prevention of free radical and oxidative damage as well as photoaging for a more youthful-looking complexion. It also delivers a hint of tint for a gorgeous, glowing finish. 

elta md sunscreen

EltaMD UV Clear Sunscreen with Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 ($33) 

 

This sunscreen comes dermatologist recommended because it does not clog pores or cause sensitivity. Instead, it uses niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to promote healthy-looking skin and SPF 46 protection to defend your skin against harmful UV rays. 

banana boat dry spray sunscreen

Banana Boat Sunscreen Dry Balance Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen Spray ($4.46) 

 

This spray sunscreen delivers broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It's water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and offers a soft matte finish. Its new formula helps you feel dry and fresh! 

la roche-posay sunscreen

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin Face Sunscreen ($19.99) 

 

This sunscreen was made for those with oily and acne-prone skin. It offers SPF 60 protection and absorbs oil and other pore-clogging agents with its Cell-Ox Shield antioxidant technology, preventing it from causing breakouts. 

supergoop lip sunscreen

Supergoop AcaiFusion Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($9.50) 

 

Don't forget about your lips! Keep them protected this summer with this moisture-rich broad-spectrum SPF 30 lip balm, which prevents UV-induced photoaging while also soothing dry, chapped lips.
