The SPF Products You Need Now

Sunscreen is the most important ingredient you can add to your skin care routine. This potent product protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UVA rays: UVA and UVB. UVA skins penetrate the skin deeply, and leave it susceptible to premature lines and wrinkles. Skin may appear leathery and droopy with repeated sun exposure. UVB rays, meanwhile, are the key cause of sunburns.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we recognize that there’s more to your beauty routine than simply looking great—it’s also about adding effective products to the mix that actually make a long-term difference in the condition of your skin. We carry an extensive range of products loaded with SPF, including makeup and skin care products. Here, the ones we suggest to help protect your skin from those dangerous UV rays.

Dry skin benefits from ultra-hydrating moisturizers that drench skin with much-needed emollients. One to try: PCA Skin Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($25.99). This enriching moisturizer is loaded with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking healthier over time.

If you wear makeup every day, you may as well choose a formula that offers more than just the standard coverage. bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 25 ($17.99) is perfect for completing your look. It gives skin a natural, practically flawless finish, and it’s ideal to use on oily skin because it soaks up the sebum to prevent that telltale shiny gleam.

The spray-on formula is quick and easy to use, and it provides continuous, water-resistant coverage for up to 80 minutes. As it blocks those harmful UV rays, it also kisses skin with a fresh, fruity guava mango fragrance. It’s perfect for summer—but during those cooler months, it will remind you of the warmer months to come!

 

If you’re at all familiar with the no-makeup movement, you probably wish you could get on board with it. Try a tinted moisturizer, like Quitessence Sunshade SPF 30 Tinted ($22.99), which contains green tea and vitamins D and E to help repair existing damage while preventing further problems. It’s available in light, medium, and dark skin tones, so there’s one for everyone.

Your lips will feel softer for longer, and over time you’ll notice a visible improvement in the condition of your pout. Feel free to wear this over your favorite lipstick—it’s lightweight and colorless, so it’s perfect for adding a much-needed layer of protection.

TheBeautyPlace.com News: SPF Update

Just because it is winter doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be paying attention to SPF values in our skincare.  UV protection is not just for lying out and it is important to look for a minimum UV protection of 15SPF in your everyday moisturizer.  However, all the numbers and letters of sun protection can sometimes be confusing.  In light of this the FDA just issued new rules to prevent false and confusing claims.  Here, our rundown on what SPF factors you should look for when buying a face cream.

Look for the term “broad-spectrum,” since only products that shield against both types of radiation–UVA (which causes wrinkles and skin cancer) and UVB (which causes burn)–can make that claim.  We suggest trying the Murad Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30, which offers broad spectrum protection.

Only sunscreens with broad-spectrum protection and an SPF of 15 or higher may claim that they reduce the risk of skin cancer and early aging if used as directed–with frequent reapplication.  We love Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant, which has an SPF of 30.

In addition, misleading terms like “waterproof,” “sweatproof,” and “sunblock” have been banned altogether.  What’s more, a product that claims to be “water resistant” must now specify how long you can stay in the water for before it wears off.
