Is the sun care season over? Que nenni! We often forget the importance of applying a sunscreen with SPF in the winter, when the temperatures are so low that we barely stick our heads out of the house. And yet: the sun is present in winter, it is reflected even more in the snow, and UV rays are just as harmful to our skin and our health. So, don’t put your sunscreen away for the winter, and get your hands on one of our suggestions!
Sun Bum Tinted Sun Care
We love this brand. Sun Bum smells like the beach, and their tinted daily lotion with SPF 30 is a real essential in our skincare routine. Lightweight, it literally melts into the skin, acts as a makeup base, or simply as a daily cream that gives us a fresh look in a few seconds. A mineral product made from zinc is easy to add to our morning routine.

Loose Powder from Laboratoire Dr Renaud
One of our favorite products to apply all year round is Laboratoire Dr Renaud’s broad-spectrum free powder SPF 50. Not only is it easy to apply, but it gives a natural and mattified look, in addition to protecting the face from UV rays. Its applicator is also perfect for keeping in the purse and touching-ups throughout the day. The powder is available in different shades (light or dark) to better suit everyone. We can’t live without it anymore!
