Summer is quickly approaching (YAY!) and even though sun care is a year-round concern, most sun damage is done in the summer months. Think ahead and line up some of the best sun protection — that not only protect but also improve the look and feel of your skin.

We’ve been fans of the Colorscience brand since we discovered their handy, compact mineral powder brush in a metal tube that fits easily in a purse, beach bag or even a back pocket. Convenient and effective, with SPF 50, you can use it over makeup or alone for total protection. (If you’re sweating or in water, just reapply every two hours.)

Blendable and breathable, featuring custom-refined minerals and nutrient-rich ingredients— it feels good on, and even gives your face a no-shine finish. (We’ve even used it at night to set our makeup.)

$65 and lasts easily an entire season. Comes in four different shades — Fair, Medium, Tan, or Deep.


For the body, we use the Colorescience Sunforgettable Body Shield which is powered by what the company calls ‘EnviroScreen Technology’, meaning it protects not just against sun’s damaging rays but also Infrared radiation, blue (HEV) light and pollutants. With a hydrating, antioxidant-rich all-mineral formula is weightless, easy to blend and invisible. ($45.)

See you at the beach!
