Summer Skincare Facial SPF Sunscreen Products

As much as I am loving the extra Vitamin D and the general good vibes the sunny weather brings right now, this is also the perfect time to reevaluate your SPF game. I know, you are not only supposed to wear SPF in the summer, but every time you go outside. However, as the sun gets stronger I also like to double down on protecting my skin. So today I thought I would share with you my go-to SPF products and also explain how and when I wear each one. 

Summer Skincare Facial SPF Sunscreen Products

The CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF 25 is my everyday moisturiser. I use it all year around and I just ADORE the consistency and how hydrated it leaves my skin. It's the perfect base for my makeup and I simply cannot go a day without it. A must in my beauty routine!

The Shiseido Sun Care Expert Sun Protector Face & Body Lotion SPF 50+ is THE facial SPF I love using whenever I know I will be in the sun a lot that day. It has a very similar consistency as the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+, but for some reason I just tend to use the Shiseido more often. I guess I prefer the scent a bit, other than that they are basically identical.

Did you know you should touch up your SPF every couple of hours, even when wearing makeup? I tried using sprays on top of my makeup before but honestly, my face just felt too oily after. Then I came across the Shiseido Sun Care Clear Stick UV SPF 50+. Let me tell you, I am obsessed! It's a stick with a clear balm that you can simply glide one top of your makeup. Sure, some of the makeup transfers to your stick, depending how much product you wear. However, as I am the only one using it, I really don't care. Reapplying SPF has never been easier. Also, it's the perfect size to pop in my handbag! 

Whenever I go for a swim or a run I like to wear a sunscreen that is waterproof. For that my choice is the Avene Sun Sensitive Sport Fluid SPF 50+ is perfect for that. Yes, it is definitely heavier than my other products, however when I workout in the sun I don't really care much about any possible whitecast or oiliness. I just want my skin to be protected, all the time. 

What is your favorite SPF?
