A designer beach bag calls for an indulgent suncare, and the latest offerings for summer deliver more than coastline cache. Featuring advanced technologies and anti-aging ingredients, these super-charged SPFs work hard to protect and improve your skin while you’re kicking back and relaxing.
Who says natural and organic suncare can’t be luxurious? Not Soleil Toujours, which is a favorite of celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff. From tinted lotions and sheer sprays to the amazing Set + Protect Micro Mist SPF 30 that works beautifully overmakeup, there’s a during- and after-sun product for every predilection. This summer’s new addition is the Hydra Volume Lip Masque SPF 15, which combines hydrating oils, anti-aging peptides, antioxidant red algae and more. Available in six sheer shades, it can easily jump between your beach bag and makeup bag (or get one for each!).
Not making a trip to the East End this summer? Apply this multitasking sunscreen, close your eyes and pretend you’re on Southampton’s Cooper Beach or Main Beach in East Hampton—whichever’s more your style. With hydrating argan oil, botanically-based antioxidants, soothing chamomile and a water-resistant formula that’s perfect for all skin types (including sensitive and acne-prone!) this chemical-free sunscreen is a no-brainer—and a go-to for Caitlyn Jenner and Nicole Richie.
A Japanese beauty powerhouse, Shiseido’s bold blue sunscreens are frequently spotted on upper-crust beaches around the world, and their celeb-beloved classic recently got an upgrade. The new-and-improved invisible, lightweight formula now provides added protection when exposed to water or perspiration, making it a must for any day of fun in the sun—and Audrina Patridge and Charlotte McKinney are totally into it.
Summer requires a high level of UV protection every day—even if you’re not headed to the beach or pool. This opulent offering serves up heavyweight broad-spectrum protection against UV rays and environmental assaults with a lightweight feel and long-lasting hydration. New York City dermatologist Dr. Marnie Nussbaum recommends this suncare to her well-heeled patients, and we bet La Prairie devotees like Chloe Grace Moretz, Lucy Hale, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Katharine McPhee are wrapping up their morning skincare routines with it, too.
The true definition of tropical paradise—and a beyond fancy one at that—no one leaves St. Barth’s without at least a few of this authentic brand’s hair, body and skincare products in tow. Since everyone’s skin and hair needs replenishment after a long day of fun in the sun, this super-hydrating tiare-scented oil is the perfect way to do it—and it gives bare skin a sultry sheen while you’re at it. If it’s good enough for Gigi Hadid, you’re sure to be a fan as well.
