How to Sneak Sunscreen into Your Routine

Adding sunscreen to your routine has never been easier — be sure you’re taking advantage!

We all know sunscreen is essential to keep skin healthy and glowing, and yet it’s unlikely that SPF is always your top skincare priority. But it should be! SPF is the single best thing you can do to keep your skin looking young and flawless. It’s the best anti-aging cream out there, and it protects against skin cancer. However, in the grand scheme of skincare chores, it ranks somewhere between flossing and exfoliating...not so fun.

There are several different types of UV rays, so it is crucial to protect your skin from all of them by using a “broad-spectrum” sunscreen. Here are the easiest ways to sneak SPF into your daily routine.

1. Choose A Moisturizer with Sun Protection
Don't feel like slathering on a heavy duty SPF 30 every morning? Neither do we. It may seem basic, but not all moisturizers are created equal. Make sure you’re covered by choosing a moisturizer or makeup base with a built-in sunscreen.

2. Try a BB Cream
A hybrid between tinted moisturizer, sunscreen and skincare, BB creams bring you the best of all worlds. You can protect your skin against the sun and hydrate and treat imperfections — all in one fell swoop. It's an amazing skincare secret weapon for those of us who don’t have time for an extended morning routine.

3. Protect Your Pout
Your lips are probably not the first thing on your mind when you think of sun protection, but the super thin skin around your pucker easily burns and wrinkles. (That's one red lip that’s never in style!) Keep your kisser supple and happy with an SPF-containing balm.
