5 Sunscreens to Use Daily
Yes, Even in the Winter
If you find yourself living in four-seasoned areas, you probably have experiencing switching out your clothing and skin care products to account for the environmental changes. Once winter rolls around, cotton skirts, sandals, and straw sunhats are likely all tucked towards the back of your closet until springtime. But one item you should make sure to keep handy year-round is sunscreen.
Even though it may not be as strong or up for as long, the sun continues to emit harmful rays in winter. This means your skin is still susceptible to sun damage, making it imperative to apply broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher daily. To make sure you’re still getting enough sun protection, we’ve gathered five sunscreens—from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands—you could use all year round, wintertime included.
L’ORÉAL PARIS REVITALIFT BRIGHT REVEAL BRIGHTENING DAY MOISTURZER SPF 30
Sunscreen doesn’t have to be just about sun protection. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30 both protects skin from the sun while providing anti-aging benefits. Formulated with glycolic acid, this sunscreen has the ability to visibly brighten complexions, even out tone, and visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It’s also water-resistant and can be applied as early as 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.
