Let’s face it, we all love the sun, but once you’ve reached a certain age, you start thinking about the negative side effects too many rays have. Long gone are the teen years spent carefree basking in the summer sun with, what’s that, baby OIL!?! If you’re in your 20’s or 30’s it’s time to trade in the oil and lather on the sunscreen. With more than 90% of premature wrinkles caused by the sun’s harmful rays, today’s tan could be tomorrows crow’s feet. Even scarier, the American Academy of Dermatology estimates one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime.
Getting into the habit of wearing sunscreen every day can be tough, especially because sunscreen on your face can make it hard to apply your daily makeup.
The beauty desk at Tyzen put together a list of the top 8 best face sunscreen brands to use as part of your daily routine. These products are designed to be worn under makeup and offer UV protection with a light, non-sticky finish. The key to your makeup and sunscreen playing nice—allow the SPF to soak completely in before applying makeup.
