Best day creams with sunscreen

The very best thing you can do for your skin is sunscreen. I know you know. You know I know you know. But most of the time we slap on some day cream with SPF 15 and dont reapply till next day. We are lazy and really minimalistic in that way. I coat my kids with sunscreen when they go out but barely do the same for myself. Yet every single dermatologist worth her Botox will tell you that you absolutely must use it as there’s nothing as good as prevention. Sigh.

Here’s some multi taskers.


Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer with SPF 47 $32: natural mineral sunscreens, antioxidants and argan oil. Lightweight, doesn’t break out sensitive skin and blends well with makeup. Multiple Allure best product winner.


Dr. Jart Every Sun Day UV Sun Fluid SPF 30 $34: very lightweight and hydrating, blends in quickly, seaweed extract with sunscreen protection, especially great for those with dry skin.


Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen $57: now this isn’t inexpensive but I absolutely love it. Perfect for reapplying, just throw it in your purse and reapply when needed. 4 skin tones to choose from plus one medium with shimmer which would be gorgeous for summer. Definite must have as you can put it under or over makeup so it cannot get any easier. Focus on your left side as that gets way more damage than right side while driving.


Deborah Lippman Rich Girl Hand Cream SPF 25 $28: your hands get more exposure than your face yet we rarely bother with reapplying sunscreen to our hands. I must insist you buy one of those and keep it in the car. It’s bit pricey for sunscreen and it’s not terribly moisturizing but it’s not greasy or slick and doesn’t leave white residue all over your car’s upholstery.

My never ending PSA: please buy at department stores or Sephora or doctor’s offices. Amazon sellers or other countless sellers on the net might not be legit or they could be selling old product which won’t be as effective as it promises.
