Even if you’re a bit of a sunscreen slacker during the cooler months, everyone needs some sort of SPF in the summer — yes, even on those cloudy days. The easiest way to incorporate sun protection into your routine is by using a daily moisturizer with SPF. Olay Complete Defense SPF 30 Daily UV Moisturizer, $14 at, is one of our favorites for providing protection in a quick-absorbing sheer formula. For something with a bit more coverage, try Dr. Brandt Tinted Daily UV Protection SPF 30, $30 at, which has a subtle bronze hue. Those who prefer sheer — but not totally bare — should go for Dove’s Energy Glow Skin Brightening Facial Moisturizer, $9 at, which has just a hint of radiance. La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15, $29 at, is this season’s scientific favorite — the incredibly hydrating cream contains the super-potent (and newly U.S. approved) UVA filter Mexoryl.

Now that I’m well in the 4th decade of my life, my skin type has changed from excessively oily to combination normal-to-oily. I find that I need moisture without pore-clogging oils and heavy creams. Made from Earth’s Rosehip Hibiscus Face Serum is the perfect product for providing age-defying moisture and antioxidants without a heavy cream or hefty price tag. This is one of my favorite facial moisturizers.
After washing my face with a gentle pH balanced, soap-free cleanser like the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser (also from Made from Earth), I let my face air dry prior to applying the serum in small dabs under my eyes and face.

People try to guess my age, and they are usually ten years off! Go me!!
