Sunny weather is finally here, and with warmer temperatures comes the patio lunches, hiking and picnics in the park. If you do not use sunscreen all year long, (a habit you should make part of your skincare routine even during winter) you should at least wear it in the summer when the sun’s rays are at their strongest. Here are five day creams that offer SPF protection so that you can save a step and not have to apply a separate sunscreen to your face! You should, however, be aware that these skincare products are not suitable for prolonged sun exposure, such as a day at the beach where you should re-apply sunscreen as directed.
1. Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant, SPF 30
This light-textured skin cream contains Vitamins C and E, antioxidants and helps to improve the signs of aging while protecting and moisturizing the skin. In addition, it nourishes your skin leaving it feeling hydrated all day long.
2. Olay Total Effects Whip Face Moisturizer, SPF 25
We told you about this new collection when it launched a few months ago. We loved the smooth texture of these new creams. A light weight cream with wrinkle protection and SPF 25 – it’s perfect for summer. What more could you ask for?
3. Clarins Multi Active Day Cream, SPF 20
This is the perfect day cream for the active woman. This day cream restores radiance to the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and protects our skin from UV rays. It’s a product that literally melts into your skin!
4. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance, SPF 20
This is, without a doubt, one of our favorites! It helps to correct blemishes and enhances your skin with its antioxidant ingredients. It can also be used as a makeup base because it smooths and mattifies the skin instantly!
5. No 7 Early Defence Day Cream, SPF 30
A good option for sensitive skin, this day cream works for young complexions. Its light formula does not clog pores and is hypo-allergenic. Are you familar with the brand? It’s one of divine.ca’s newest favorites! What skincare do you use? Do you prefer to use a separate sunscreen or do you like it combined in your day cream? We’re curious to hear your thoughts!
