IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
Summer is full of photo opps—so be ready for them. To that end, apply this full-coverage CC cream for a flawless, sun-protected complexion.
Ulta Beauty Collection SPF 50 Sunscreen Rose Water Setting Lotion
Summer beauty is all about experimenting with colorful eye shadows and shimmery highlighters. Keep all your makeup in place (in spite of the heat) with a multi-functional setting spray that also acts as a sun-protectant. P.S. For the days you prefer the naked face look, the spritz still works great to refresh and protect.
Sun Bum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 70
UV rays get all the attention for being damaging to your skin, but exposure to free radicals can be just as bad. This sunscreen fights against both in a double-whammy formula that nourishes while it protects—leaving you to sunbathe worry-free.
Ulta Beauty Collection SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Face Stick
If you hate the thought of missing out on any of the beach-side fun (volleyball! cornhole! spikeball!) to take time to reapply your sunscreen, this mineral SPF is for you. It’s water-resistant (read: sweat-resistant) for up to 80 minutes, and the stick formula means it glides on quickly so you can get back to play time.
Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery Broad Spectrum SPF 50
You’re all about dedicating your summer to adventuring, which means more time outside and less time spent in front of your bathroom mirror. Sweep on this deeply hydrating moisturizer in the morning, and you’ll be covered on SPF (with a youth-protecting boost) all day.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield Water Gel with Broad Spectrum SPF 25
If you’re spending your summer in the city, pollution protection is priority number one. This lightweight gel gets a boost from hyaluronic acid (for mega moisturizing powers) and antioxidants (to detox pollutants from your pores) with SPF 25 to help city-proof your skin.
Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15
You live for that summer vacay glow, so there’s no sense in covering it up with heavy makeup. This lightweight foundation (which is available in 56 shades) acts as a hydrating sun-protectant while smoothing out skin imperfections for just the right amount of dewy coverage.
