The warm weather is here and since age spots become more prominent this time of year due to sun exposure and UV heat, I found 3 great sunscreens you’ll want to look into to protect yourself. I personally have wicked (said with my New England accent) brown spots on my forehead and under my eyes. I always use a dark spot lightener, but it always needs to be paired with sunscreen (or using it is basically void.) These are 3 sunscreens being used in my household:
Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 60 Soft Sheer Sunscreen ($30): Provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection and contains Vitamin E and white grape extract for healthy skin. It’s non-greasy and doesn’t really have much of a fragrance to it. It dries matte on the skin and isn’t too heavy to be worn on your face under makeup. It also doesn’t leave a film behind like some sunscreens do. While it’s water-resistant, you do need to re-apply it 40 minutes after going in the water.
MDSolarSciences Mineral Screen Lotion SPF 50 ($34): I’ve written about the wonders of MDSolarSciences before and I truly love this silky sunscreen. Since it is silicone based, it works great under makeup doubling as a primer. Application is so easy because this lotion literally glides over your skin.
Pevonia Botanica Ligne Soleil SPf 30 Hydrating Sunscreen ($44): What I love about this sunscreen is that it smells like flowers. Most sunscreens either smell like coconut, chemicals or have no scent at all. I’ve never encountered one that was floral in its scent. It’s also non-greasy, dries matte and feels so soft and smooth on the skin, almost like lotion.
Have you tried any of these sunscreens? Which is your favorite?
