The thing about sunscreen is that you have to wear it all. the. time. That fact has become a topic of discussion among doctors and beauty experts during quarantine, as many of us are cooped indoors more than we would like. “UVA rays penetrate through glass, so if your room has a window, it is important to wear sunscreen even when inside,” says New York-based dermatologist Dr. Hadley King told CNN.
UVA rays are the culprits that cause the wrinkles and sunspots. UVB rays, on the other hand, are mostly linked to sunburns and types of skin cancers. While most UVB rays are filtered through car windows and other glass, knowing any rays can reach you indoors is alarming.
Enter Heidi Klum: In a recent interview with ELLE UK, she shares that her “biggest beauty discovery” is La Roche-Posay Tinted SPF50+, a one-stop-shop sunscreen that protects skin from all UV rays. “It isn’t too heavy and is perfect for everyday wear,” claims Klum.
Formulated for safety and tolerance to sensitive skins, this lightweight sunscreen is 100 percent mineral and non-chemical, offering UV protection down to the cellular level. It’s also available in both tinted and non-tinted, so you can choose to use as a straight-up sunscreen or in place of foundation (which is a great option for summer). The universal tint blends in with your skin’s natural tones to provide an even-looking, natural glow.
- Dermatologist tested
- Allergy tested
One reviewer wrote, “I’ve been using this sunscreen for years, ever since a melanoma diagnosis. I don’t leave the house without it on, and it serves as the base for my makeup. It’s lightweight and smooth and goes on like a dream and stays on all day. It’s also got a slight tint, allowing me to use it alone in the summer without additional foundation.”
