Summer can be brutal. From Miami to Coachella to Dubai, you need the best of the best sun care products to protect your most precious commodity.
Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum
Haute Living VIPs received this product in their gift bags at the Porsche event with Maria Sharpova. Why? Because this product is so light and weightless, that the tennis star invested in the company simply because she loved it that much. What’s not to love? It’s a super lightweight serum that counteracts the signs of aging by repairing, protecting, and priming the skin for the rest of your daily regimen. $42 Buy it here.
Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm SPF 30
As the name promises, this product does it all. You have the coverage of a foundation using the smallest possible microspheres that hide imperfections and wrinkles. It is also infused with natural, skin-protecting emollients which have been shown to increase antioxidant activity by up to 89.7%. It’s also water-resistant, so it’s as good for a day at the beach as a day at the office.
COOLA Liplux Original Formula SPF 30
You want to be careful about the kind of products you put on your lips, so a natural SPF lip balm is in order. One of the few and one of the best is the COOLA Liplux. It is 70+% Certified Organic, and made with natural food-grade ingredients. Would you want to put anything less on your kisser?
Vilebrequin Crème Solaire Visage
This sunscreen is a little gem we discovered when Vilebrequin opened its Bal Harbour boutique a year ago. Both the face and body cream are light, non-greasy and easily absorbed. It’s paraben-free, made in the UK and SPF 50, need we say more? In case you don’t have a French swim trunk store near you, get it here.
MDSolarSciences Tinted Crème
We first discovered this product at Whitelight Skincare in South Beach’s tiny South of Fifth neighborhood, when skincare guru Eduardo Ayub insisted it was the best. He was right, and in the years since, the product is much more widely available at places like Sephora. It glides on effortlessly, evens skin tone and really blocks the sun. Best of all it’s formulated without parabens, oxybenzone, octinoxate, aminobenzoic acid (PABA). $35
Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush by Colorescience SPF 30
This brush on sunscreen powder is amazing. It comes in 6 different shades for a perfect match and, because of it’s application, it’s the only sunscreen you’d realistically reapply over make up. It’s a self-dispensive powder brush, so once the product is done, you can actually buy refills for it. It’s an ingenious and totally different kind of sun product. Either use on its own, or layered on top of other sun cream, just to be sure. $59 But it here.
