SPF and pampering don’t always go hand in hand, but if you choose the right at-home treatments, protecting yourself from the sun can be every bit as luxurious as a day at the spa. The trick to slathering your skin with something wonderful? Incorporating these three powerhouse products into your daily skin care regimen.
Intellishade® SPF 45 Tinted Moisturizer
An anti-aging tinted moisturizer that acts like makeup but provides superior sun protection? It exists, and it’s called Intellishade. This offering from the experts at Revision® Skincare is packed with broad-spectrum sunscreen, including UVA and UVB protection, as well as compounds that moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply a thin layer under your makeup or use this as your one-and-done. Intellishade goes on silky smooth, blending in wonderfully and adding an extra dose of radiance in the process. Many SPF products are sticky and unsightly, but the only way anyone will notice Intellishade is because of your eye-catching glow.
Total Defense + Repair SPF 50
SkinMedica® is known for their science-led approach to cutting-edge skin care, and Total Defense + Repair is no exception. Though the presence of ultra-protective SPF 50 is obviously a major boon, Total Defense + Repair is so much more than a typical sunscreen. A proprietary antioxidant complex protects against free radicals and helps your skin rejuvenate from the inside out. With continued use, you’ll be assisting your skin in warding off tell-tale signs of aging and limiting damage caused by environmental stress. All this, and the cream rubs in beautifully without an unsightly residue or greasy feel, and it’s water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Total Defense + Repair SPF 50 can be used on its own or in tandem with other complementary skin care products, such as SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum.
Essential Defense Mineral Shield SPF 35
If you’re looking for a sheer, lightweight sunscreen option that won’t let you down even on the sunniest of days, grab a bottle of Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35. Whether you have sensitive skin, need a little extra protection post-procedure, or just prefer a sunscreen that’s a little less heavy, your skin will adore this paraben-free, oil-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic solution. Use Essential Defense on your face, neck, and chest and you’ll safeguard your skin without risking clogged pores or tacky skin. With both high-level UVA protection and extensive UVB coverage, Essential Defense has earned a place on your bathroom counter.
