Even if you don’t live on the beach, SPF should be a crucial step in your daily skincare routine no matter the climate. UV radiation can be just as intense in the winter as it is during summer months, and making sure your skin is protected at all times is key. Sunscreen isn’t just about protecting your skin from sunburns, but it works to prevent premature-aging, dark spots and more.
With so many brands on the market, it’s hard to tell which is actually worth investing in. Well, we’re taking a page from Kelly Ripa’s book, who revealed she uses La Roche-Posay Tinted Mineral face sunscreen daily — even as a New Yorker.
“I also double down on sunscreen. What I like about this sunscreen, first of all, is that it’s full-coverage. It’s that broad-spectrum, UVA-UVB and whatnot sunscreen, but it’s tinted in a way that sort of makes you look sun-kissed and not a weird color,” the Live with Kelly and Ryan host explained to New York Magazine.
“A lot of tinted products tend to make you look orange or way too dark, to the point where you don’t even look like yourself. This is just like a light coverage, so it looks like maybe you put on foundation, maybe you didn’t, who knows?”
“I grew up going to the Jersey shore where, as teenagers, we put baby oil on our skin and thought it didn’t work unless we were burned. So I am now paying the price for that phase of my life. My kids got my husband’s coloring — thank god — but I always tell them that just because you have this beautiful, bronze coloring doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t get skin cancer. Because of the damage I did as a teenager, now, every time I go to the dermatologist, I cross my fingers and hope everything will be okay and go well.” Ripa added.
La Roche-Posay‘s Anthelios Mineral Sunscreen has amassed over 900 reviews and a 4.5 star rating on Amazon. The universal tint formulation provides blending, sheer coverage that enhances skin’s natural glow and is 100 percent free from chemicals.
One Amazon shopping wrote, “I see that it balances and refines your skin tone and it is convenient when you don’t put any makeup. I can totally go out by wearing only this sunscreen. Last, it gives a nice, healthy glow on to your skin. My skin doesn’t get oily throughout the day and I don’t see any residue or films at the end of the day. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase and this will be my only sunscreen from now.”
Another simply reviewed, “Worth every penny…I never thought I would spend this much on sunscreen but it is so worth it! The tint offers light coverage and moisturizer similar to a BB or CC cream but with an even higher SPF. So thats one less I have to buy now.”
