11 Sunscreens the Skincare Obsessed Need to Invest in Before Summer
You've been wearing high SPF protection all year round — of course — but now the warmer weather is upon us, it's time to refresh our sunscreen stash. If you're anything like me, you have a hefty skincare collection and your routine has been perfected, so the last thing you want to do is layer a thick, greasy sunscreen over the top of your hard work (and investment!).
The quality and technologies behind the gold standard face sunscreens can now give you incredibly high UVA and UVB protection, but without that greasy feeling, and sometimes include coverage or other great anti-ageing ingredients too. You've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: when it comes to skin, SPF should be your number one. It's easily the top culprit when it comes to premature ageing in twenty- and thirty-somethings — you should be wearing a SPF 30 or 50 every day.
If your formula is over a year old, or you just need a new sunscreen in your life, here's our top 12 skin-loving sunscreens to get you through each day without feeling shiny, heavy or sticky. To aim for Gigi-level skin evenness, smooth a whole teaspoon amount onto your face and neck, after your skincare and before your makeup.
