Incorporate SPF in your everyday look

Incorporate SPF in your everyday look

By Jessica Crilley Adolfsen
Protect yourself from the sun with these 10 must-have SPF beauty products.

The days of carefree tanning are over—skin cancer is on the rise and it’s now more important than ever to protect yourself from the sun. However if you’re like me, incorporating SPF into your daily beauty routine is easier said than done. Sure, you have the best intentions, but when it comes down to it who has the time to slab on a layer of SPF every morning, let alone reapply it throughout the day? That’s why I’ve compiled a list of 10 everyday beauty products that already contain SPF. So even the laziest amongst us (aka me) can stay protected from those harmful UV rays!

As always, prep your skin with moisturiser or primer before applying any foundation. Luxplus offers several SPF moisturisers, from name brands such as Clinique, Nivea, and Elizabeth Arden. So make sure to check your daily moisturiser to see if you’re covered, and if not, pick up some cheap SPF moisturiser here on Luxplus.

The next step is your base or foundation. Summer is the season of sweat, so try to avoid anything too heavy or cakey (melty face is not a 'hot' look). I personally recommend using a tinted moisturiser or even a BB or CC cream, with SPF of course! Unsure of what to use? Here’s the lowdown:

Tinted moisturiser is exactly what it’s name implies, moisturiser with a tint of colour. 

Luxplus Top Pick: MeMeMe Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15

Why We Love It? This tinted moisturiser is both alcohol and fragrance free. And better yet, it’s enriched with nourishing jojoba oil as well as SPF. 

BB cream, or beauty balm, offers more coverage than a tinted moisturiser and is ideal for minimising any imperfections such as blemishes or sun spots.

Luxplus Top Pick: L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream Light SPF 12

Why We Love It? This baby is five perfecting creams in one. Not only does L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream provide flawless coverage, but it corrects skin tone and texture. And in case you haven’t caught on yet, it also contains SPF.

On the other hand, CC cream, or colour correcting cream, helps neutralise ruddy complexions and revive dull, sallow skin. CC cream "supposedly" provides more coverage than BB cream, but you’ll have to judge that for yourself. 

Luxplus Top Pick: Max Factor CC Cream Natural SPF 10

Why We Love It? Max Factor CC Cream provides instant, radiant results. It doesn’t give you the complexion you have, it gives you the complexion that you deserve

Need more coverage? Try layering a foundation on top of your tinted moisturiser or BB/CC cream. Maybelline’s Superstay Better Skin not only has an SPF of 20, but promises even looking skin in as little as three weeks. For minor touch ups, there’s always Bourjois' CC Eye Cream Concealer. Marketed as an undereye concealer, this pigmented coverup packs a punch and can be used to hide blemishes as well as other imperfections.

If you haven’t quite achieved that coveted summer glow, swipe a bit of bronzer on your cheekbones and temples. Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer contains SPF 15, so you keep looking sun kissed, rather than sunburnt. Oh and did I mention that this bronzer is waterproof? Yes, please!

The hottest trend this summer is strobing. And it’s no surprise why—illuminator can create the appearance of chiseled cheekbones and brighten your overall complexion. Vita Liberata’s Capture Illuminating Skin Finish Rose with SPF 15 is the key to looking effortlessly refreshed. Apply a few dots to the apples of your cheeks as well as above your cheekbones, and begin channeling your inner goddess.

Sunburned lips are not fun, in fact I’m wincing just thinking about my last rendezvous with blistered puckers. So thank God for Maybelline’s Baby Lips Intense Care SPF 20 and Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15. These SPF infused lip balms are perfect for summer. You can wear them naked, or beneath your favourite lip colour. Whatever you do though, don’t forget to protect your lips.

And now, last but not least, spray a few spritz of Vita Liberata Dry Oil SPF 25 on you face, body, and hair. This multipurpose dry oil dew contains antioxidants and other rejuvenating minerals, which revitalise your skin and hair. I personally use this dry oil to protect my locks from the harsh summer sun, but I hear that it also works great as a makeup setting spray. So try it out and see for yourself.

There it is folks, 10 everyday products with SPF. But these certainly aren’t the only SPF products on Luxplus, in fact we have dozens more available. All you have to do is search SPF in the search bar. So protect yourself from the sun and start shopping today!
