5 Ways to Get More SPF

Spring is here! And with all those cherry blossoms and espadrilles comes a bit more daylight, which is why you should step up your morning sunscreen routine. Below, five ways to get more SPF without even trying.

Veil Mineral Primer

Veil is an oil-free primer from Hourglass that does way more than keep your foundation from sliding off. In addition to having SPF 15, it tames redness, lessens the appearance of pores, and fills in fine lines. We’ve tested it ourselves. Available at Violet Grey, $54.

Beyond Coastal Facestick SPF 30

Beyond Coastal calls it a face stick, but we think “everything stick” is an apt name too. We apply the balmy formula (it’s got coconut oil!) to our lips, backs of our hands while driving (nice try, sneaky sunshine), and on cuticles. You won’t find filler ingredients in this SPF 30, and it’s compact, so it travels like a charm. Available at Beyond Coastal, $7. 

Colorscience Pressed Mineral Foundation

Colorescience’s Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20 is light, so you won’t look aged by the powder finish. Apply a dusting with a brush, get more coverage with a sponge, or layer over your foundation. It’s also water resistant, so if you’ve got a beach vacay on the horizon, you’ll want to toss this in your suitcase. Available at Colorescience, $55.

Supergoop Skin Care for Winter

Protect your hands as quickly as you swipe on your favorite hand lotion. Supergoop’s Forever Young hand cream has SPF 40 to protect you from new damage and antioxidants that work on existing hyperpigmentation. Available at Dermstore, $12.

Fekkai Soleil Hair Mist

Our heads experience a whole lot of light. Protect your hair with a couple of spritzes of Fekkai’s hair mist with UV filters. In addition to sun damage prevention, you’ll get smoothing and defrizzing effects. Available at Fekkai, $20.
