5 Face SPF’s to Try This Summer | Gypsy Beauty

I can’t stress enough how important it is to wear SPF on your face on a daily basis. For those of you who aren’t super up-to-date on the effects UV rays have on your skin, this article is going to be your life-saver. Over time, the sun’s rays break down elastin in your skin (the stuff that keeps you looking fresh and supple) and causes fine lines and wrinkles that are 100% irreversible. Sure, while you’re in your 20’s, it’s not that big of a concern but the damage is being done on a day-to-day basis and sooner or later, all of that sun damage will catch up with you. And to be totally real with all of you, the bottom line is that skin cancer is one of the most diagnosed types of cancer out there.

Because the sun’s rays cause mutations in your skin cells, the chance of getting skin cancer nearly doubles every single time you get a sun burn.

One more thing: when I say daily use of SPF, I literally mean every single day. The sun’s rays have a damaging effect on your skin year-round, even when it’s cloudy outside. If you’re like me, then you know how hard it is to find a daily-use product that is gentle and works with your skin type. Below are my 5 all-time favorite SPF’s for face application. These quick, clean and easy SPF’s will work seamlessly into your current beauty routine and offer your face that flawless protection it’s desperately been needing. It’s better late than never, so if you haven’t been using a daily SPF, all of the options below are amazing. Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts on the products!

1. Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray

≫ The perfect way to add SPF into your daily beauty routine with this Setting Spray/SPF. The Soft Focus technology helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines and give that airbrushed finish to any look. Easy application with spray pump.

2. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47

≫ For all of you babes who are in need an extra moisturizing boost. I’m a huge fan of dry face oils and personally find them way more effective than cream moisturizers. This Argan face oil has SPF 47 in the formula, helping to protect your skin as it re-hydrates.

3. CLINIQUE Acne Solutions BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40

≫ This one is for all of you who have sensitive skin or struggle with acne. Clinique is one of my long-time favorite cosmetic brands, and for a good reason. This BB cream is a 3-in-1 powerhouse, acting as a BB cream with flawless coverage, an acne solution and a daily-use SPF.

4. Neogen Dermalogy Day-Light Protection Sun Screen SPF 50 PA+++

≫ This is your classic SPF sunscreen, but revamped with some awesome extras. This daily SPF offers strong levels of protection with SPF 50, plus some natural moisturizing benefits from ingredients like honey, rose and raspberry. I suggest this sunscreen for bare-faced days at the beach or for you guys out there who don’t use foundations or concealers.

5. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15

≫ You officially have no excuse for not using SPF. This Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation has built-in SPF properties, offering light levels of protection. This is super easy to integrate into your routine because it’s built into a product you probably already use. This foundation comes in so many shades, so there’s a shade for every one out there.

    I’ve been looking for a good SPF for the last two weeks or so as I am absolutely awful with suncare and am only now just realising how important it is. I’m only 19 but I take good care of my skin in every other way except sun protection. I’ll have to look at these ones!

    Thanks for reminding me I need to get my butt into sephora and find a good sunscreen xx

    Great roundup girl! I love wearing SPF foundation too – Laura Mercier is my fave, but I’ll have to give this Bobbi Brown one a go since I love their products!

    I’ve started using a MAC foundation with an SPF 15 also and its perfect because I tend to forget or just neglect using sunscreen. I am definitely going to try the Clinique Acne Solution! Thanks for the tips 🙂
