We all know sunscreen is important. But wearing face sunscreen everyday, under your makeup, and while you’re exercising is especially important. Here are my three favorite face sunscreen products for exercising outside, swimming, and everyday.
Why I wear sunscreen on my face and neck everyday
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been really aware of sunscreen and protecting my skin. And in the last two years as I’ve started running outside several days per week, I’ve become very diligent about face sunscreen.
And although many of my makeup products have SPF in them, I still always put sunscreen on underneath my makeup just for a little extra protection.
Sun exposure can cause so much damage, including aging and wrinkles, and of course skin cancer. So it’s always better to be safe and put on the extra protection.
These are my three favorite sunscreen products
This sunscreen came in my Fab Fit Fun box a couple of years ago, and is my most worn of the three sunscreens for my daily exercises outside. It’s lightweight, smells good, isn’t sticky, and has SPF 50. If you buy any of the three, this is definitely my top recommended.
It has a really good lightweight coverage, although a bit thicker than the COOLA one above. It’s very moisturizing, and I prefer to put this one on under my makeup because the texture works sort of like a makeup primer. Also my BB Cream has SPF 30, so I don’t feel the need to wear SPF 50 underneath that as well.
This sunscreen stick is my most used for the pool. It’s a nice stick that easily swipes on, and it’s super waterproof so you don’t have to worry about it slipping down your face into your eyes and mouth when your face gets wet. Gross.
It’s not sticky at all, and it’s not overly greasy, plus it’s lightweight so as soon as you put it on you forget about it. But because it does have a little greasiness, it’s easy to swipe on and then rub around on your face as needed.
I’ve also heard amazing things about SuperGoop’s sunscreen as a good, clean option. If any of you have tried that and recommend, let me know.
