It's no secret that wearing sunscreen every day is essential if you want healthy skin. If you're planning an outdoor wedding, remember to protect your skin! We've rounded up four facial moisturizers with high SPF that will protect your skin on your big day!
Glossier Invisible Shield Sunscreen SPF 35
According to the website, this one is a “sunscreen for people who hate wearing sunscreen”. And it's absolutely true: this product is weightless and practically invisible. Glossier chemical sunscreen will hydrate your skin and make you feel you aren't wearing anything on your face at all. The bottle might be a little smaller than the price tag would suggest, but it is definitely worth buying.
Paula's Choice Ultra-Light SPF 30+
Although most mineral sunscreens are chalky and hard to apply, the Paula's Choice Ultra-Light SPF 30+ spreads easily on the face. This sunscreen will keep your skin matte and won't mess up your makeup. The formula contains antioxidants and kind ingredients which do not clog pores. The one and only disadvantage is that this product has a slight tint, which is sadly not suitable for darker skin tones.
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30
The light texture, pleasant smell, and hypoallergenic ingredients mean that Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer is perfect for all skin types. This face moisturizer with added SPF transforms dry skin into skin that's smooth and hydrated. The cream absorbs easily into the skin and offers lasting protection from sun damage. It's great to wear both alone and under your daily makeup, which is why we think it would be a great option for a summer wedding!
Glow Recipe Watermelon Sunscreen
Having jumped to fame on TikTok, this product is as fantastic as people say it is. The slightly fruity smell will make you fall in love as soon as you smell it. If fragrances usually bother you, don't be too quick to dismiss Glow Recipe's Watermelon Sunscreen – the smell disappears rather quickly once it has been applied. It also leaves no trace of a white cast, contains niacinamide, which reduces inflammation, and does not irritate sensitive eyes or skin.
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
Supergoop's Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 wears amazingly well under makeup, has a silky weightless texture and melts like butter, leaving a velvet effect on the skin. No white cast, no pilling, and associated oiliness or no breakouts. Trust us: your skin will thank you later!
Supergoop! Sunscreen SPF 40, $20-36
Here are three tips for applying sunscreen:
- Sunscreen should always be the last product in a skincare routine before putting on your makeup.
- Remember the two fingers rule for sunscreen. This method involves squeezing a product along the length of middle and pointer fingers and applying it all over the face. It might seem like a lot, but a pea-sized amount will not protect your skin!
- Even your face moisturizer should have SPF in it! Try to get one with an SPF of 30 or higher. You still have to use sunscreen too!
